Weekly Goals

Set GoalsI did pretty well this week, although most of it was done with a heavy heart because of the sad news we received. A lot of people attended the memorial service and almost just as many went to my brother-in-law’s for the meal afterwards. It is going to be a difficult Christmas, well, it will be a difficult time for the family for a while, so continued prayers would be much appreciated.

She’s Back…..! (Mostly) and Weekly Goals

Set Goals

Well, I haven’t posted since September 8th. I never planned for that to happen, but the two 7 1/2 week classes turned out to be very labor intensive, along with my other two classes, plus homeschooling Andrew, plus life…you know the drill! Plus, we had changes to my husband’s employment which has been a bit of a life-changer. Also, this Wednesday I have a big presentation for my Anglo-Saxon class, and after that, I’m pretty much good except for a couple of big-project papers and possibly a final. So, hopefully, I will be able to get some regular blogging in – especially since I am WAY past due on some book reviews.

As for goal setting, I pretty much blew it to the wayside for a while; therefore, I am not going to post my previous goals, just the ones for this week. Also, I am only going to start with eight goals, so I can ease back into the goal setting mode.

Marriage/Parenting/Home Management Goals

1. Send Michael a “love text” twice this week.

2. Stay on top of Andrew’s homeschool.
