10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

I’m still struggling to get out of bed before my kids every morning, but I did make some progress last week.

I managed to get up by 7:00am at least 3 or 4 days, which is better than the week before. ;)

Other than that, I did well with my goals.

Here’s what I accomplished last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

1. Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family

2. Make an apple and a pumpkin pie with the kids — We ended up making one apple pie and three pumpkin pies. (Hide. The. Scale.)

Personal Goals:

3. Do resistance band exercises 3x

4. Walk a total of 75 minutes on the treadmill

5. Read 20 pages of The Hobbit (affiliate link) by J.R.R. Tolkein — I’m almost finished! And I can’t wait for the extended version of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug to be released in the very near future. :)

6. Get up by 7:00am every morning — While I didn’t wake up by 7:00am every day, I did make progress.

Home Management Goals:

7. Vacuum upstairs

8. Clean up and organize the files on my computer

Business Goals:

9. Create a DIY video

10. Make and photograph one recipe to share in a later blog post

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

First things first: I have a new kitchen faucet.

And it’s not plastic! :)

I was so thankful last Wednesday when a serviceman showed up (for real this time) to replace the kitchen faucet. I was able to wash all of the pots and pans that had accumulated, and well, I’m just happy that this latest repair is behind us.

Other than that, last week was pretty uneventful, and I was able to cross off most of the goals on my list.

Here’s what I accomplished:

Family/Mothering Goals:

1. Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family

2. Sign up for an online cooking class with Breanna — We’re signed up for Taste of Home’s “Comfort Food Classics” online cooking class. These classes are brand new, and if you use the coupon code TAKETEN, you can get $10 off your first class. Breanna and I are ready to learn and excited to be making homemade macaroni and cheese tomorrow! It’ll be my first-time ever making this dish from scratch. :)

Personal Goals:

3. Do resistance band exercises 3x

4. Walk a total of 75 minutes on the treadmill

5. Read 20 pages of The Hobbit (affiliate link) by J.R.R. Tolkein

6. Get up by 7:00am every morning — Again, I failed miserably here. Over the weekend, I seriously thought about just giving up for now, but then I woke up early this morning and reaped some of the early morning benefits I so desperately need as a mom. So, I’m going to continue working on getting up before my kids. If I keep trying, it’s bound to become a habit someday, right?

Home Management Goals:

7. Wash all the pots and pans that have piled up while the kitchen sink has been out of commission

8. De-clutter the area around my desk

Business Goals:

9. Create a DIY video — I didn’t get this goal, but I’m planning on creating a video this week to show you how to make your own brown sugar bath scrub.

10. Return emails

Oh, you guys. The last week has been interesting and frustrating. To cut right to the chase, last Wednesday night my kitchen faucet literally fell apart. No big surprises, I guess. That’s what can happen when your faucet springs a leak and the company hired by your landlord to replace it actually installs the cheapest […] Read more »
