Weekly Goals for February 26, 2014, and an Update on Last Week’s Goals

The kids have been out of sorts this week; tired, cranky.  I don’t know if they’re all simultaneously going through growth spurts or if they’re getting sick.  DH has a small cold, so the whole family has been trying to get extra sleep.  Because I’m having quite a stressful end of the month as far as work goes, I decided to take it a bit easier on goals this week.

Last Week’s Goals

Financial

  • Have a budget meeting with my husband.
  • Decide with my husband what conferences we’ll attend in 2014.  We’ve talked, but we haven’t definitively decided.  We’re also considering going to the Great Homeschool Convention.  Has anyone gone before?  Would you recommend it?

Personal

  • Study Japanese with the kids at least four times this week. I’ve been winging this so far, but I think it’s time for me to start making some flashcards and studying old school.  :)
  • Read at least 3 books to the girls a day.
  • Do at least 15 minutes of ABCMouse.com with each girl 2 to 3 days this week.  
  • Read for 30 minutes every day.  I just finished The Hiding Place.  Look for a review later in the week.  Now I’m simultaneously reading Seabiscuit and True Compass, though neither really has me hooked.  I need an I-can’t-put-it-down type of book.  Any suggestions?
  • Write two journal entries this week.  
  • Exercise with the kids 2 times this week.
  • Clean the bathroom towel/medicine cupboard! Check out the before and after pictures!  I hadn’t cleaned this cabinet since we moved into this apartment two years ago.  Can you tell?
