My Goals for 2019 – Week 2 of 52

This week was a doozy!  First, I kept my chart, so I could visually see what I accomplished and what goals I wasn’t achieving.  I think keeping this chart will be essential to meeting my goals.  That’s the good news. The bad news is that this week my mom, I, and both of the girls […]

Picking Up 4 Weeks to a More Productive Life Again

In early November, I revamped my morning schedule significantly and started getting up at 4:30 in the morning because that was the best time to get things done. This post contains affiliate links. I was following Crystal Paine’s 4 Weeks to a More Productive Life, and I had great success with the morning routine, which was […]

My Goals for 2019 – Week 1 of 52 (I’m Adding More Goals!)

This week I discovered something about myself.  If I don’t keep a careful eye on myself and my progress, goals that are not habits yet will simply fall by the wayside.  So, you’ll see I didn’t hit the goals that are new to me, like reading the Bible daily and using the Barton system.  Therefore, […]

My 7 Goals for 2019

I’m a bit leery about setting goals for this year because my kids are still early in their ABA journey, and our lives are still rather unsettled.  So, I’m setting these goals with the idea of being gentle with myself and knowing that flexibility may be required. I’m separating my goals into five categories:  homeschool, […]

What I Achieved in 2018 (and I didn’t meet any of my goals!)

Wow, this year has been a doozy.  We’ve been on a tailspin for almost three years now, and for the first time, I feel like I can catch my breath. . .a bit. But let’s start first with the optimistic goals I set back on December 26, 2017.  Here’s the sad truth–I didn’t accomplish any […]

Goals for December, 2018

Can I just tell you that getting back to goal setting and actually achieving most of the goals I set felt wonderful last month?!  Last night I ordered the Barton Level 1 reading program for one of my dyslexic children, and it felt great knowing that I had worked hard to raise the money in […]

4 Weeks to a More Productive Life: Week 2 Follow Up

So, Week 2, uh-hum, did not go the way I planned.  Each night, I was swept up in a tide of busy and exhaustion, and none of my evening goals were completed.  In fact, it was Wednesday night before I even remembered I had nightly goals.  Oops.  Big fail. However, in the light of this […]

Goals for November, 2018: Update #3

This month was the first time I set goals in months and months, and it felt so good to have goals to strive for again!  Even better, this month I achieved about 80% of my goals: Make Six Freezer Meals Sprout’s had grass fed ground beef on sale for $2.99 a pound earlier in the […]

Goals for November, 2018: Update #2

We’re about at the halfway point in November, and luckily, I’m about halfway to meeting my November goals: Make Six Freezer Meals Sprout’s had grass fed ground beef on sale for $2.99 a pound earlier in the month, so I ended up making my 6 freezer meals using ground beef: Easy Hamburger Soup Beef Tortilla […]

4 Weeks to a More Productive Life: Week 1

So, for most of this year, I’ve felt like a freight train has run me over, but as I mentioned in my November goals, little by little I’m beginning to feel more like myself and able to tackle more projects.  Things may not be running smoothly at home, but they are improving with ABA, so […]
