Accounting, Crazy Kids, and Yard Sales

Life has been insane the last 5 weeks, basically, ever since I started my first accounting class. I was not prepared at all for the intensity of it. Had I known that my husband was going to break his leg in 2 places (he ended up with a plate and 10 screws).... leaving him with a full year until he will recover for the most part....
I would have opted for an easier set of classes.....BUT I didn't know, so I am just trying my hardest to do my best and not get too over whelmed with life.

Just in the last week I have:

  • Written 2 essays.
  • Done almost all my homework. 
  • Cleaned the yards (they still have a long way to go before we move). 
  • Been homeschooling my son.
  • Trying to keep up with the house as best as I can.
  • Washed, what seems like, 100 loads of laundry 
  • Taught Sunday school.
  • Helped with church yard sales.
  • Created images and announces for my church, blog and FB page.
  • And actually found time to take a shower or two.
All of which I absolutely love doing, but it is quite a lot to deal with in one week.

My favorite thing I have been doing is using a program on my computer to make signs and quotes for the blog, my Facebook page Home of the Heaton's  and for my church. Here is a little sample of what I have come up with lately:

Here are some that I have made for our church, I have taken out the address and phone number, but you get the general idea:

Church Yard sales:

Youth/Sunday School Fundraiser (Part 1)

Youth/Sunday School Fundraiser (Part 2)

This is for our Wednesday Night Service:

Prayer nights:

There are a few more but I don't want to bore you with a bunch of flyers. 

The one thing that I haven't been doing is getting my Etsy shop up and running. I have so many amazing pieces of vintage clothing that I need to list on there and I just have not been able to find the time. I have all the pictures taken and everthing is ready to be uploaded, except the descriptions. I need to write them out for each listing. I keep telling myself I just need to list one a day and it will eventually get done. Then the next thing I know, it's 2 am and I have to get up around seven or eight depending on how long my kiddos let me sleep.

I will like to take a moment to brag on my hubby who has let me sleep in 2 mornings, and it was SOOO wonderful!!!!!

Well as much as I would love to sit and write some more (I love writing this blog, even of no one reads it, it is so therapeutic for me) I must go........ My life is beckoning me.

Hope you all have a great week. And just in case I don't get to post until next week, I hope you all have a very blessed Resurrection Sunday (aka Easter).

God Bless,
Jacque Heaton
