Goals 3-5

I am going to group my last three goals since two of the three won't be interesting enough to warrant a full blog post.

3)  Read my Bible daily.  I started this in the last three months of 2012 and have done better, but not great.  I started a Bible study with a wonderfully awesome lady at work and I have learned so much from her.  What is funny is that while I was doing this a few nights back, I opened my Bible up randomly and happened upon this:
Hebrews 12:1  Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

What a perfect verse for me to stumble upon on a day that for whatever reason I had a particularly bad jogging session and was achy and sore.  I hope to discover more truths like this.  I want to raise Destructo to be a good and Godly man and learning more about the truths of the Bible will help me do just that.

4)  Get back into being a couponing queen.  Before Destructo was ever conceived, I was a couponing queen.  Okay I was never as good as the ladies on television but a part of that was that I refuse to become a hoarder and buy 82 rolls of paper towels when I only have room for 30.  But I had a well stocked pantry and occasionally even had to buy a dog toy because I had so many coupons that my groceries ended up being in the negative amounts after coupons.  I kept up with it just at Publix for one year and I had saved nearly 2500 dollars with coupons.

I know that I will probably never get that good again, at least not while I am working full time as a toddler.  But I hope to get back into it on a small scale so that once I am a stay at home mom, I can really save some money that way.

Here are my favorite blogs for couponing:
5)  Work on improving my blog.
As you guys have probably noticed, I have a new look.  It isn't finished yet either so stay tuned.  I will also "introduce" you guys to the lovely lady who is responsible for this awesomeness once she is finished.  But other than look wise, I hope to start a blog hop about mommy fails/ realistic parenting etc at some point in 2013 and also not focus solely on  Destructo.  But also start blogging about me and my goals etc.  I figure you guys "know" Destructo, now you can get to know the mommy behind Destructo a bit more as well.  It will also let me remember who I am since that can so often get lost in the craziness of raising children.

And who wouldn't want to get to know this person better?

  1. yay for the new look! It's awesome!! Good goals to have. I like to read Money Saving Mom too but have not got onto the couponing game. It's awesome that you saved 2.5K once!! WOW!

    1. Thanks! I am loving it so far. I wish I could save 2.5K every year. Maybe one day when I don't have a toddler running like crazy scattering all my piles of coupons as he goes by. Thanks for reading!

  2. I don't know what it looked like before, but I think it looks great!

  3. I had a couple of the same goals! I started doing #writetheword to help me not only remember to read everyday, but also to read with intention (instead of my eyes glazing over! oops!!) I also need to get back into the couponing swing of things. During the holidays we were in a get-what-we need-when-we-have-the-money-to-get-it way and I need to get back my good frugal habits! Site looks great! Blessings!

    1. Thanks! I get the eyes glazing over thing. That happens to me as well.


Thanks for leaving a comment! They really do make my day. I make every effort to reply to each and every comment.
