Wednesday Check-In

January 5th, 2011 at 09:08 am


Today and tomorrow are NSDs, out of the fact that we have a $2.50 balance in the check book. (I do have some other cash set aside should something come up, though I'm pretending I don't have it). I do have a list of things to get on Friday.

Improvement in communication is happening in my household - that is between DH and myself. Today we spent ten minutes synchronizing our calendars for the remainder of the month. Life gets a bit more complicated as we start indoor soccer for the K-Son. But it was nice that we actually know what days we need to be where. I used to have a Take Each Day as They Come Mentality, which is a direct contradiction to DH's natural tendency to be Aware of the Bigger Picture. I think we might be leaving our polar opposites and move toward middle ground - a blessing!

My daughters are babysitting for the first time on Saturday night. They are 12 and 13, with the 12 year old taking a Babysitting Class this past summer. This is for another family at our parish. The mother called and asked if the girls were available. It was nice to hear nice things about them (this mother was struck by how kind the girls are with the little kids, and both girls have helped out at VBS, and the mother noted that my girls are always attentive in Mass and both girls still kiss me after school Mass when other kids barely wave at their parents who happen to be there). I feel very blessed to have my girls, and it is nice that their inner qualities are appreciated and noticed in others.

That is all for now. Enjoy your day!

    Awww ... I remember my first babysitting job. I think it was the summer I was 11. Hope your girls have fun!

    I think that is great about your kids, and it speaks volumes about the type of family they come from. Your middle ground idea is the key, I think, that leads to better communication and understanding over time. It also offers some insurance that both partners are showing some flexibility!
