Goals for 2018: Week 17 of 52

Before I leap into my goals, I’m planning my summer blog content, and I’d love to know if you find the weekly grocery reports valuable or not?  Please let me know in the comments as well as what other kind of content you’d like to see.  I don’t want to post stuff that isn’t useful […]

Goals for 2018: Week 15 of 52

I’m beginning to think it may take all year to firmly establish these goals.  Life here is, well, crazy and chaotic.  After much observation and thought, my husband and I have decided to get another child tested for high functioning autism.  We’re not sure yet that this child has it, but many of the behaviors […]

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 […]

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 […]
