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).

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.

It’s been an interesting week culminating with my computer crashing. Still I didn’t do too bad goal-wise! Here’s how it went down this week:

1. Begin reading  the gospel of Mark five minutes per day. (Ug, I didn’t get any bible reading in this week. 🙁 )

2. Pray the rosary each day and do Lenten devotionals with Andrew. (I’m ashamed to admit that I didn’t get my rosary in most days but I did pray with Andrew.)

3. Give my half of the conversation project for speech class and get caught up with biology course work. (I’m happy to say that my presentation went better than I expected. I am slowly actually beginning to enjoy my speech class. ALMOST. 🙂 I’ve also come to the understanding that I will never fully be up-to-date with biology until the semester is over. There is just too much to do!)

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

5. Continue karate lessons and basketball clinic for Andrew. (Basketball is over and Andrew was thrilled to get a metal for participating in the program. As for karate, Andrew gets tested on March 30 for his next belt stripe…)

6. Participate in the Early to Rise Challenge. (I’m loving this challenge! I haven’t been perfect in getting up early but I am making good progress. Funny thing is, I AM a morning person but for a while I was really struggling to get out of bed and starting my day. I’m happy to be getting back on track.)

Here are my goals for this coming week:

1. Begin reading  the gospel of Mark five minutes per day.

2. Pray the rosary each day and do Lenten devotionals with Andrew.

3. Continue coursework for biology.

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

5. Continue karate lessons.

6. Participate in the Early to Rise Challenge.
