Weekly Goals

Set GoalsHere are my goals from two weeks ago:

Marriage/Parenting/Home Management Goals

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

2. Stay on top of Andrew’s homeschool.

3. Take car to mechanic. There is problem with the heater, we think. :(

Personal Goals

4. Get up at 6:00 am. (Most days, but for several days it has been too cold to want to get out of bed!)

5. Spend at least 15 minutes reading the bible and prayer every morning.

6. Exercise at least 15 minutes, 5 times this week.

Educational Goals

7. Read pages 108-161 of Beowulf and post to the class discussion board.

8. Write and submit proposal for Senior Seminar I final paper.

Blogging/Writing Goals

9. Write at least one blog post this week (besides this one). (Missed a whole week – sorry!)

10. Write about page for the other website I am creating. More on that in a couple of days (hopefully!)!

Since this is Thanksgiving week, I am keeping my goals as manageable as possible:

Marriage/Parenting/Home Management Goals

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

2. Do some holiday baking with Andrew.

3. Take some time to just be “in the moment” to enjoy being together as a family – both on Thanksgiving but each day of the week, too.

Personal Goals

4. Get up at 6:00 am.

5. Spend at least 15 minutes reading the bible and prayer every morning.

6. Exercise at least 15 minutes, 5 times this week.

Educational Goals

7. Finish final draft of Senior Seminar I paper and submit.

8. Write rough draft of Anglo Saxon final paper to bring to class workshop.

Blogging/Writing Goals

9. Write and post book review of An Amish Second Christmas.

10. Work on the other website I am creating. I can’t wait for this to launch! It is something very different than I’ve ever done before. 🙂

Now it’s your turn. Share what you have going on this week in the comments, or join us over at Money Saving Mom with your own goals.

  1. My parish is offering a 6:45am communion service on Mondays and Fridays of Advent. I usually leave by 7:10am with the kids each weekday for school so I don’t know how practical attending the communion service will be. Basically we’ll all need to be ready to go for the school day by 6:30, yes. Well, it’s a thought.

    Other things are similar to your goals. Things are really in flux this year and I’m literally making it up as I go. Trying to be flexible.

      Our church offers Mass every morning but we are having car trouble, so I don’t think I will be making it to Church much during the week in Advent. But like you wrote, it is the thought that counts. God understands our intentions and gives us more grace than we give ourselves!

      I like how you are trying to be flexible. I need to to a better job with that. 🙂

  2. Carol, I really like the priority of sending love notes to your husband being on your list. It is a great example to others of how to keep tightening a relationship. We can only grow closer to others by being in loving contact with them.

      Thanks, Barb. With my husband on the road so much, I want him to know I am thinking about him. I also think it makes his day, even if he doesn’t always say so. 🙂
