Sunday Snippets: A Catholic Carnival (May 25, 2014)

Sunday Snippets

It has been a long time since I’ve participated in Sunday Snippets and I’ve missed it terribly! Thankfully, spring classes are over and I only have one class during the summer; therefore, I should be able to participate more regularly.

Of course since I rarely blogged the whole 4 1/2 months of classes, I didn’t really have anything to link up. In any case, here are my two posts, both reviews:

Question of the Week:

What are your plans this summer?

My in-laws are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in August. They are having a special mass to renew their vows, and have a party; however, everyone in the family is also taking a trip to Ocean City, MD for 5 days. It is our (my husband’s and mine) first real vacation in 9 1/2 years so we are very excited! Other than that, we plan do a few day trips, send Andrew to basketball camp (not overnight!) and spend time at the pool/beach.

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…)
