Another week, another update on my goals.

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 week I compulsively read the first 150 pages, and then the book started messing with my emotions, so I put it aside and went into You Need a Budget. I hope to finish both this week.
Write. I wrote twice in my journal last week, thanks to reader Lisa’s gentle nudge. Thanks, Lisa!
Care for Myself
Exercise. No exercise this week. I have to get back on this, but every time I move vigorously, I feel a throb in the tooth in front of the one that got pulled. I should be able to start walking this week, though.
Manage my sugar cravings. I didn’t give this up for Lent. Instead, I gave up raising my voice with my kids. Ha! It’s challenging, but going well so far.
Create a Manageable Schedule for Myself
I am happy to report that the chore chart is working beautifully with the girls. Bookworm is a different story. What is it with teenage boys?!
Re-establish My Prayer Routine
I said my morning prayers every day this week. I’m also saying my basic night prayers. For Lent, I added in saying a rosary a day. That is also PB & J Girl’s Lenten resolve, so we’ve been able to pray it together. We just missed twice this week.
Make $25 a Month on Swagbucks
think know I might have been overly ambitious with this goal. I started at 214 Swagbucks, and now I’m at 587, so I have earned 373 Swagbucks in the last four weeks. I’m excited by the progress, but I’m going to have to spend more time on this to get the 2,200 I need to get a $25 Amazon gift card.
These are my initial goals for 2018. How are you doing on your goals? I’d love it if you’d share in the comments!
