Hello 2013!

I've been really bad about blogging. To many excuses to mention.

This year (I pray) is the year I am able to accomplish many thing on my list. Main one is getting out of debt so I can stay home!! (This is my specific request for prayer as of now and your prayers will be greatly appreciated)

I honestly never thought I would want to be a stay at home mom/wife but 2 years ago the Lord really started working on me and the more He worked the more I felt my home needed me more than the world. Yes my children are older but they still need me. For the year I got to stay home, I was in heaven. I began to notice how our home improved. The ill tempers stopped. More smiling and joking! I was able to attend ALL of my children's school activities. (My youngest has told me he don't like the fact that I have returned to work. He wants me home). I have found that since I've gone back to work, I have been VERY LAZY. I don't want to do nothing but sleep in late and only do the minimum when it comes to chores and pleasing my husband. I so need to seek God's guidance and direction with this. I know in my heart of hearts my place is my home.

I would love to be able to find some kind of work I can do out of my home. My problem is I'm not a good sales person and I don't want to be the person who calls people on past due bills. I want to be able to make products to sell (and make a profit from it). Any suggestions? My mom would love for me to become a 31 consultant. (again the sales thing). Pray that I will intently search for God's plan for me. All I know is I want to be a stay at home mom/wife again!

My husband has been so sweet. He knows I don't want to work outside of our home and he's trying to help and support me. I know the long list of reasons for my working outside the home. Mainly financial. I know we need to create a budget and STICK TO IT. We have done the classes, we have the resources but the LAZINESS kicks in and I don't want to do it. (No wonder why being lazy can get you in trouble.)

Sorry for the rambling and the whining. Please pray for me!!
