It is nearly two weeks since I last posted here. Not a good time to talk about consistency. I thought since we are half way through the term this week, it would be a good time to review how my word for the year is going. 

Back at the beginning of the year, I chose consistency for my word. I said:

I want to be consistent with prayer, the different therapies my children need and my day. I want to do everything I need to with consistency and regularly.

In looking back I see the following good things:

Joseph and I start our day out everyday with prayer or mass. On Monday and Fridays, mass is in the evenings so we go and pray the rosary at church. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, mass is in the morning so we go to mass.

Most days after mass we go to the foreshore for Joseph to do his exercises. 

Most mornings, I write up a to do list for the day. I have been pretty successful at getting everything done on my list most days. 

Been pretty consistent at getting to bed around 10.30. I am also pretty consistent at getting up and checking any of the children that need bsl tests overnight. 

the things I need to improve on:

My own personal prayer time. I have prayer time scheduled for the mornings. I need to do this more. I tend to either sleep or get up and check facebook, words with friends and email. I also have scheduled to do an examination of conscious each night but rarely do it. I spend time on computer or playing games. 

Time management. Even though I am writing a daily plan and what I want to get done, I am also spending a lot of time sitting around and not being productive. That is one of the reasons I haven't posted on my blog for two weeks. 

Homework: I want to be a bit more consistent in helping the children with their homework and be more involved in their learning. 

Limiting screen time: For me and the children. They children are suppose to only have computer/television time between 4.00 and 5.00. 

Pump uploads and recording bsl. Recording bsl and uploading pumps has never been my strong point in looking after the children's diabetes. I need to be more consistent in keeping their records and emailing pump uploads for their endocrinologist to look at.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research.
