10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

Well, my plan to get up before all of my children every morning didn’t really work out the way I thought it would. I didn’t exactly help myself by going to bed late every night.

But it’s a new week, right? I’ve learned my lesson, and I’m ready to try again! :)

Here’s what I accomplished last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

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

2. Plan Breanna’s birthday celebration — We keep things low key, and it’ll just be our family of seven. But still…her birthday will feel a whole lot more special with a bit of planning ahead.

Personal Goals:

3. Start a prayer journal

4. Walk a total of 60 minutes on the treadmill

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

6. Get up by 6:00am every morning — I went to bed too late most nights and completely failed at getting up by 6:00am each day. But I did end up making progress in my wakeup times by the end of the week. Setting a later “backup” alarm helped. ;) This week, I’m going to focus on getting to bed by 11:00pm.

Home Management Goals:

7. Sew my slipper

8. Fill a bag with items to donate

Business Goals:

9. Return emails

10. Write a blog post recapping David’s Make-A-Wish trip! — I’m about 70% done. This is a picture-rich post that required quite a bit of time in Photoshop.

Here are my goals for this week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

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

2. Plan a fun Family Day

Personal Goals:

3. Do resistance band exercises 3x

4. Walk a total of 70 minutes on the treadmill

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

6. Get up by 6:00am every morning

Home Management Goals:

7. Sew button

8. Clean bathrooms

Business Goals:

9. Film a DIY video

10. Finish blog post recapping David’s Make-A-Wish trip!

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

The past two weeks have been FULL in a very good way.

We actually started this week out at Magic Kingdom on Monday. We spent the day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Tuesday, then got up on Wednesday and drove to Animal Kingdom to squeeze in a few more hours of fun before flying home to Chicago on Wednesday night.

I’ll share more about our trip in another post, but we spent a total of ten days in Florida and loved every minute of it! Okay, we weren’t excited about the insane heat and humidity that greeted us every day, but other than that, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime vacation!

I decided not to set goals while we were away, because what’s the point? :)

Now that we’re back home, though, I need to get back into working on my weekly goals. And I need to pay particular attention to my goal of waking up BEFORE the children.

I slept in today, and, as a result, my morning didn’t feel very peaceful, if you know what I mean. It seemed like everyone either needed something or had a question to ask mama…through the bathroom door.

So, yes, after today, I’m definitely ready to get back in the saddle!

And here’s what I’m planning on tackling this week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

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

2. Plan Breanna’s birthday celebration — We keep things low key, and it’ll just be our family of seven. But still…her birthday will feel a whole lot more special with a bit of planning ahead.

10 Goals for the Week

Even though I set goals late last week, I didn’t do all that bad getting things crossed off my list. It helped that we spent most of the weekend at home. We did have a long day away on Friday, because we had to drive to Chicago for a regular appointment with David’s stem cell […] Read more »

It’s Thursday. Yes, I know. I should’ve written this post and published it on Monday. I’ll blame my lateness on the endless dishes that need to be washed, getting ready to start our new homeschool year, and the many impromptu family nights that seem to keep happening so that we can squeeze in more Hobbit […] Read more »
