9/15/14 hope, shoes…

written 3/7/12 – There is a question in my Max Lucado journal. It is the journal titled “out live your life”. It asks what gives you the most hope? I had to think about the question for a long time. What gives me hope is to see my kids happy about their accomplishments, and when I have a problem that can be solved, I am able to work out a solution. A problem that can’t be solved would be if I have to drive somewhere and there is only one way to get there and there is too much traffic. I can’t change the location or the traffic. When we have a problem that can be solved, like too many shoes in the kitchen, and we, or I, can find a solution, I begin to have hope of solving other problems. It gives me momentum.

Today I found plastic trays that can each hold two pairs of shoes. I got four of them. I will tell the kids tomorrow that they can keep as many pairs of shoes as they can fit on their tray, in the kitchen. The rest of the shoes must go to the shoe shelf. I was looking for  a Rubbermaid plastic dish drainer for each of us. I couldn’t find any so we each have a plastic serving tray. It will work the same way.

I like to keep three pairs of shoes in the kitchen. One pair each of dress shoes, tennis shoes and sandals. It is so convenient to have them all by the back door. I may have two layers of shoes on my tray.

How do you stay organized? I would love to get some ideas.

Please join us again tomorrow and read about our newest adventure!!!

blog income
I have been looking for a way to bring extra cash into my family without getting a second job. I just want enough extra income to be able to pay the bills but still be able to have time to enjoy my kids. I tried a lot of web sites that offered envelope stuffing, they were all dead ends. Then I tried blogging. I figured that if enough people visited my blog then I could add advertisements and get paid. If I monetized my blog I could take the profit to help my family. I have found Blogsvertise. With them I can have advertisements on my blog, or have guest posts or have banner ads. I am still new to this. If I bring other people in to Blogsvertise I can get a percent of what they make. I have the link on the side of my blog. If you click on it you can register your blog and start making money.
