Weekly Goals

Set Goals

It’s been a long while since I’ve posted weekly goals. Thankfully, I’ve survived my chemistry (although I don’t have my final grade yet) and have a few weeks until school starts up again – full-time. In the meantime, I am going to use the next few weeks to buckle down and accomplish some goals I’ve had to set aside for a while.

Here’s a refresher of the last time I posted my goals:

1. Make time for prayer and bible reading. (I didn’t get hardly any bible reading done, but I did make time for prayer everyday.)

2. School, reading and quality time with Andrew. (I’m not sure if the time spent with Andrew would be considered “quality” time, especially during my stressful times with chemistry, but I did get in some nice cuddle time while we read before bedtime each night.)

3. Keep up with the chemistry work. (All I can say is WHEW! I am so glad this course is over!)

4. Blog 2-3 times a week. (Most of the time it was 1 or two posts a week, and probably not my best posts, but I did my best.)

5. Keep up with house work and laundry. (We are staying with my in-laws for a while so really I didn’t have too much house work to contend with! Still, I did have areas that I was responsible for and being the anal person that I am, I made sure it got done. 🙂 )

Here are the goals for this week. I’m keeping it light, though. I don’t want to get too crazy and risk setting myself up for failure!

1. Pray, read bible and go to daily mass at least 2 times.

2. Do school with Andrew, read to him lots and spend at least 15 – 20 minutes a day just playing with him.

3. Get back into exercising 15-20 minutes, 3-4 times this week.

4. Spend 30 minutes a day writing on my book.

5. Plan out and write at least two blog posts for this week AND plan out a blogging schedule for August. I’m also hoping to pre-write as many posts for August as I can.

6. Think ahead and write out my plan to get through the September through December semester. (More on this in a future post…)

Simple Catholic Living is up and Running Again – Finally!

You may or may not have noticed that no blog posts have gone out since Ash Wednesday. It wasn’t planned. Oh, NO. I went to log into my WordPress dashboard to write a post on Thursday and IT WAS GONE! I mean gone. It didn’t exist. A frantic email went out to my hosting company, Dreamhost and I learned that their was a problem with their servers that caused my website, along with a lot others apparently, to go down.

For FIVE days my site was down and only came back up yesterday afternoon sometimes.

I can’t even begin to tell you how frustrating it has been. Anyway, everything seems to be back to normal and I didn’t lose any of my date, thankfully. And, I’ll be back to normal posting shortly, including getting the final post of my marriage series up. 🙂

Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival

Here’s this week’s Sunday Snippets:

Sunday brought us a challenge from the gospels: Where does Your Treasure Lie?

Monday gave us an easy and super tasty chocolate cookie recipe.

Tuesday brought us to the bible where we shared our favorite Top 10 Scripture Verses to Memorize with Your Children.

Wednesday went wordless (sort of!) as I showed off a couple of pictures from Andrew’s sticker fun!

On Thursday we had tea with Saint Clare.

Fearless Friday gave us another opportunity to pray for each other.

I pray that today, on the feast of the Assumption, Our Lady will intercede for you and all your intentions and that the coming week brings many blessings upon you. 🙂
