** Bible Reading Plan: Week 6 **

 

Happy Monday! How's your reading going so far? I really was not feeling well last week, so I hope that this week is better for me. I managed to get a lot done, but the week was filled with migraines, and aches & pains. We have some fun planned for this week, and I am believing that I will feel up to it. Here's the plan for this week-

This week's reading is:
Monday        Deuteronomy 32 - Joshua 5
Tuesday       Joshua 6-10
Wednesday  Joshua 11-18
Thursday     Joshua 19-23
Friday         Joshua 24 - Judges 5
Saturday     Judges 6-10

If you would like to read along with me, I would love for you to! It's not too late to join! You can leave a comment below and let me know that you're in. I'd love to hear from you! Have a wonderful week!

* Back To School Tax Free Weekend! *

 
I can't believe that it is already August and almost time to go back to school! We have really enjoyed ourselves this summer, and I plan to squeeze every drop of fun out of our remaining vacation days! Even though I will continue to celebrate summer, I have to prepare for the inevitable.
 
In many states, this weekend is Tax Free Weekend for school supplies and clothing. Here in Virginia, Back To School purchases of supplies $20 and under and clothing $100 and under are tax free. Different states have different thresholds for the tax free qualification. You can always check your state's website to see what the limit is. Listed below is a list of the states and dates, that I have found, that participate in The Back To School Tax Free Weekend.
  
  • Alabama          August 1-3
  • Arkansas          August 2-3
  • Connecticut      August 17-23
  • Florida             August 1-3
  • Georgia            August 1-2
  • Iowa                August 1-2
  • Louisiana          August 1-2
  • Maryland          August 10-16
  • Missouri           August 1-3
  • New Mexico      August 1-3
  • Oklahoma         August 1-3
  • South Carolina  August 1-3
  • Tennessee        August 1-3
  • Texas               August 8-10
  • Virginia             August 1-3
I just made my list yesterday, and pretty much have to shop for everything! Make sure to pair your shopping with sales or coupons to make the most of your shopping!
 
Enjoy!

Last week I said I wanted to relax a little. I think I certainly did that, because I barely chopped away at my goals for the week. We did have fun and I did relax a little! Lol!

I am late posting this blog post because I have been feeling under the weather this week :( I just feel like making my one goal for the week - "Get through it alive!" But as a mom, there is always work to do; and if you don't do it today, it will just be waiting for you tomorrow, the next day or whenever you get to it. I usually make my goals for the week each Sunday, so here is what I had written. We'll see how much I will be able to get checked off!
