Goals for 2018: Week 14 of 52

I’m still struggling with finding me time.  So, I’m not going to add any goals for at least a few weeks, and I’m going to keep working on these goals until they become habit. This post contains affiliate links. Make Time to Relax Read a book a week.   I’m reading Pachinko and really liking it, […]

Goals for 2018: Week 12 of 52

This week, I want to limit my goals and only focus on the most important ones.  I wrote last week about how I need to learn to take care of myself.  That is so important now because I feel like my health is suffering thanks to all of the stress at home.  For this week, […]

Goals for 2018: Week 11 of 52

My brother, Jeff, was 7 years younger than me.  He had cerebral palsy and was wheel chair bound, could talk very little, and could no longer eat but had a feeding tube after he was 12.  But he had a beautiful spirit and an upbeat personality.  For sure, taking care of him took a lot […]

Goals for 2018: Week 10 of 52

I had a better week than usual this week.  It’s starting to get bright out earlier, so I think I should be able to start walking in the mornings, before the household gets going.  Hopefully that will help me achieve my exercise goal more consistently. As a reminder, here are my January goals and my added new […]

Goals for 2018: Week 10 of 52

I’ve decided to add a new goal this week.  I need to get on a regular cleaning schedule.  I cook three meals every day plus snacks, and I keep up with the dishes every day.  But, there is a lot that could use improvement.  My goal for this week is to keep the kitchen surfaces […]

Goals for 2018: Week 9 of 52

The extracted tooth, bone graft-filled area of my mouth is slowly getting better.  I had plans to slowly resume my normal schedule, but then all three of my kids got sick, one at a time, so we were home bound for three days.  At this point, what is normal?  Ha! As a reminder, here are […]

Goals for 2018: Week 8 of 52

Last week in my goals update, I mentioned that I didn’t exercise because the tooth in front of the one that was extracted throbbed every time I moved.  Turns out, that’s not normal.  And it’s not normal to be on Advil 10 days after the extraction and bone graft. Long story short, I have an […]

Goals for 2018: Week 7 of 52

Another week, another update on my goals. As a reminder, here are my January goals and my added new goal. This post contains affiliate links. Make Time to Relax Read a book a week.  I started Still Alice.  I wanted to read this a year or so ago, but the wait list was always too long.  This […]

Goals for 2018: Week 6 of 52

  I’m going to be gentle with myself this week because on Tuesday I got my tooth pulled and a bone graft done.  This Thursday, I’ll hopefully get out the stitches.  I don’t know yet what the next step in the process is.  Also, both girls were sick this week–PB & J Girl for two […]

Goals for 2018: Week 5 of 52

Whew, this week knocked me on my behind!  I had a lot of dental appointments.  Ten years ago I had a root canal by my regular dentist, but he could only complete about 2/3rds of it because he said the roots were calcified.  He said if I was lucky, it wouldn’t bother me again. Apparently, […]
