Today's Challenge~ Organizing Entertainment Center
This was a quick easy job. You won't see a big difference.
The bottom cupboard had bunches of old tapes that were just thrown in there and the bottom drawer had some things that needed to be thrown out....an empty pack of batteries, an old remote, and some DVD's that never did have cases.
Dan had to buy a DVD series for school and to take up less space, he put them in sleeves, so we saved a bunch of the empty cases to replace broken ones. They also came in handy to store some homeless DVD's! :)
BEFORE: (this is mild)
Also, this week's challenge on Women Living Well for "Making Your Home a Haven" is to create family nights.
This is a harder one for our family since Dan usually has to do his school work in the evenings.
But, tonight he and Danny are watching football in between studies and I made fresh, hot Chocolate Chip cookies and choc. milk for us.
So, I guess my challenge is to plan some fun evenings this week...I can do that! :)
Oh, we do have a Netflix movie waiting to be watched....the Grace Card!
I was telling my sister this weekend, that my "picture-perfect" evening would be ~ Everyone sitting around snuggled under blankets, reading and sipping on some hot drink while soft music is playing and candles are flickering and making the house smell wonderful! :)
sitting out by a campfire roasting marshmallows and enjoying the night sounds (MMM...the smell of woodsmoke)....I think we need to find a place to get some fire wood!! :)
But those are MY KIND of fun evenings, not necessarily the kids! :)
I really liked this quote off the WLW website~
"A wise mother knows how to have fun and how to be tender. She knows the healing touch of her hands. (Jesus used his hands to touch and heal many). There is power in the gentle expressions of love through warm embraces, cuddles and back rubs. God made backs with nerve endings that simply enjoy a rub!"
