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.

Monthly Goals: February

Set Goals

At the beginning of the month, I shared some of my goals for 2012. To help me stay focused and on track, I am going to update weekly and monthly here on the blog. I’ve been reading the weekly and monthly goals on Money Saving Mom, and have been so inspired by Crystal’s dedication and commitment to achieving her own goals. I’m hoping that by sharing my goals, others will be inspired to stay committed to achieving their goals!

As a nutshell, my goal for 2012 is to live a more Christ’s centered, intentional life, with an emphasis on peace. I wish to be more attentive and be more present to my husband and son. Finally to break my sugar addiction (more on that in another post), do well in my courses and work on some personal development projects ( a.k.a. learn some new skills. 🙂 ).

Here are the goals for February, along with a little update on how I did in January:

Spiritual Goals

1.Daily Mass, daily rosary, daily 10 minute bible study and meditation (Ongoing) Did OK, but missed several times…

2. Scripture Memorization: John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid.” (I didn’t memorize a scripture verse in January…)

Spousal goals

3. Write one love note each week to sneak into Michael’s work bag.

4. Ask him if there is anything that I can do for him at least twice a week.

Mothering goals

5. Read at least one chapter book a week and one “smaller” book each day. (I read a lot to Andrew, but I want to focus on being more intentional about this.)

6. Work on Character building. (This month: Obedience)

Personal Development

7. Knit cover for my Kindle Touch (once I figure out how!).

8. Exercise on the incumbent bike or treadmill 10 minutes a day.

Blogging Goals

9. Compose and pre-post a blog series on marriage.
