Weekly Goals

Set Goals

Not a bad week. I got a good amount of things done so I am happy. Here’s how it went:

1. Continue reading at least one chapter of the Gospel of John per day.

2. Pray the rosary each day.

3. Finish reading Pope Francis, The Pope from the End of the Earth and write review. (I actually read two books this week! Here is the review for Pope Francis and here is the review for A Hopeful Heart.)

4. Continue making and adding items to my Etsy shop.

5. Get up by 6:30 am each morning. (Counting this as a success even though it was closer to 7am most days.)

6. Go to Georgian Court University to get books for fall semester. (I got the books all right, lots of them. One of my classes requires SEVEN books. Crazy!)

7. Blog at least three times.

8. Write some rough drafts for posts to pre-schedule before classes begin. (Didn’t happen. I will just have to do the best I can in getting up some posts during the semester….wish me luck!

Now that I’m back to school my goals are going to be rather short, with the focus on keeping up with my classes:

1. Pray the rosary each day.

2. Get up by 6:30 each morning.

3. Get started with the reading assignments and work for classes. (One of my classes is Christian Tradition so I will be doing bible reading for the class; therefore, I’m taking the bible reading off my list.)

4. Find a sitter for Andrew. (My babysitter for while I’m at school on Tuesdays had to back out last minute.)

5. Blog at least twice this week.

6. Finally, If I can swing it, I want to create and list one item for Etsy.

What are your plans for this week? Let us know in the comments or head over to Money Saving Mom and share them with us!


  1. Not cool that your babysitter had to back out. I hope you can find one soon to get a little less stress before you start your class. I am sure you will do great for your class!

      Thanks, Lydia. My sitter had finally gotten a job working in her field (she had been unemployed for a while)so I can’t really blame here. She really needs the job and the money.

      Unfortunately, I haven’t found a sitter yet, but still working on it…Thankfully my mother and mother-in-law are pinch-hitting for now to help me out but neither can do it for the long-term. I just have to trust in the Lord that he will get me the sitter at the right time.

  2. You do so well with your goals.
    I will pray for a new sitter. That can be stressful until you find one.

      Thanks, Colleen. It is stressful not knowing who will be able to watch him each week. I don’t want to miss a class because of no sitter.
