It’s been a while, between moving, traveling and hosting a friend for several days, since I’ve set any goals so I am more than ready to get back on the goal-setting wagon!

Here’s the list from the last time I posted my goals:

1. Read at least one chapter of  the gospel of Luke per day. (Well, I made time to pray most days but didn’t get any scripture reading or the rosary every day.)

2. Pray the rosary each day.

3. Finish reading Francis Man of Prayer and write review. (Read and reviewed the book but I’m not posting it here, because the book was not good at all. I would not recommend it at all.)

4 Finish updating Prayer Resources page. (It’s all updated, so go check it out!)

5. Finish packing, moving and start unpacking! I will be so glad when it is all over. 🙂 I am pretty much unpacked except for a bunch of books.

Here’s what I’m hoping to get done this week, God willing,

1. Read at least one chapter of  the gospel of Luke per day.

2. Pray the rosary each day.

3. Read Secrets to a happy Life and write review.

4 Take Andrew to my mom’s each morning and pick him up each afternoon. (He his going with her to her church for vacation bible school this week).

5. Continue unpacking and  organizing our stuff.

6. Go to the “Wall Campus” for orientation and register for fall classes at Georgian Court University.

7. Attend family reunion for husband’s family.

8. Finish making the printable bookmarks and add them to Etsy shop.

Here’s how I did this week:

1. Continue reading through the gospel of Matthew five minutes per day.

2. Pray the rosary each day.

3. Deliver self-disclosure speech (wish me luck!) and work on second paper for biology. (I’m happy to report that my disclosure speech went rather well. The day before a friend of mine helped we re-work and practice the speech, so I felt better going into it. I’ll get my grade this week.)

4. Write for at least 5 minutes (of fiction) each day. (Didn’t get in any writing this past week. 🙁 Except for my bio exam I don’t have any big projects going on so I hope to do much better this week.)

5. Date night with Michael. (Sort of, we took my mom out for her birthday but I’m counting it because with my husband’s work schedule, us getting out at all is a big feat!)

6. Continue karate lessons and basketball for Andrew.

It is more of the same for this week but here it goes:

1. Continue reading through the gospel of Matthew five minutes per day. I’m getting near the end…

2. Pray the rosary each day.

Weekly Goals

Set Goals Getting adjusted to my new school schedule put a slight glitch in my plans so I’m afraid I didn’t do so great this week; however, now that I have a better idea of the work load, it should be better next week. Here’s how it went last week:

1. Continue reading through the gospel of Matthew five minutes per day. (Didn’t get much bible time at all this week, I’m sorry to say.)

2. Pray the rosary each day. (Missed a couple of days but still counting it.)

3. Start classes and work up a plan to keep on top of my course work.

4. Date night with Michael. My mom is keeping Andrew overnight next Friday and we’ll have some time alone. ) (We had to reschedule for next week because my poor hubby was exhausted after driving long hours in ice and snow most of the week.)

5. Write for at least 5 minutes (of fiction) each day. (Only got two writing days in this week…)

Here’s my plan for this week: 1. Continue reading through the gospel of Matthew five minutes per day.

2. Pray the rosary each day.

3. Keep up (and ahead) with the readings and class assignments.

4. Write for at least 5 minutes (of fiction) each day.

5. Take Andrew to Karate and basketball camp on Saturday.

6. Date night with Michael, I hope!

How did you do accomplishing your goals this week? I did O.K. but didn’t get done as much as I hoped. My classes are sucking up a lot of time. I don’t know what I’m going to do come fall when I start full time! I’ll worry about it then. For now, here’s how I did;
