Weekly Goals

Set Goals

Not a lot done on the goals list this week, but Michael was home unexpectedly mid-week, so we had some extra family time which was wonderful. Then Michael took Andrew (and Nugget) on the road with him! It is nice having some unplanned alone time. So here’s how the week went down:

Marriage/Parenting/Home Management Goals

1. Send Michael a “love text” twice this week.

2. Finish reading Five Children and It to Andrew. (Hopefully I will finish this book for real!)

3. Clean out homeschooling area. (I will get this done eventually, but this week I am turning my attention to Andrew’s room…)

Personal Goals

4. Get up at 6:00.

5. Read a chapter of Proverbs a day and spend ten minutes in quiet time.

6. Exercise at least 15 minutes, 5 times this week.

Educational Goals

7. Finish paper for class and keep up with the reading. (Crazily, the professor returned the paper the same day I submitted it! Got an A. 🙂 )

Blogging/Writing Goals

8. Write two blog posts.

9. Finish book (It is on the Mass and will be free) and upload to website. (You can read about the eBook here, and sign up on that page, on the side bar, or below this post!)

10. Continue project for Red Cross.

A Great Read: Love’s Enduring Gift

Loves Enduring Gift

I am really excited about this: a very dear friend of mine, Catherine Francis, just published her first book, called Love’s Enduring Gift! I’ve had the privilege to help edit the book and I am proud of all the hard work that Catherine put into the book.

So what’s the book about? It is a love-inspired novel focused around two people, Lynn and Scott. Here’s a snippet from Catherine’s website:

The story is about two young people, Lynn and Scott, and how their separate lives came together one sunny morning.  Scott stood and stretched, tired from work… Lynn took the walking path at their work to stretch her legs and continue reading her book.

From his window he saw her walking and decided to investigate the lovely sight that caught his eye.  Oblivious to the attention, Lynn continued her walk until a stranger in her path interrupted her reading.  It’s with this simple beginning that God took and fashioned these two into a relationship that would grow over time and blossom into something beyond their wildest dreams.

I know I am a little biased, but I loved the book and I think you will too. 🙂 I can’t tell you how many times I would forget to edit the book because I would get lost in the story, so I would have to go back and re-read for errors!

You can get the book on Amazon here.
