My work load has gotten very heavy recently, which is why I didn’t accomplish as much as I wanted to.  For this upcoming week, I’m going to give myself grace and pare down my goals.  Sometimes it’s just about survival.

Here’s what I accomplished last week:

Last Week’s Goals

Financial

  • Have a brief budget meeting (no more than 10 minutes) with my husband.
  • Rework the budget.  (I just got a semi-annual HOA bill, which I completely left out of the budget.  Oops!  It’s also clear that the grocery budget I set was too low, so I have to find more money for groceries.)
  • Have 3 No Spend days
  • File all of our paperwork from the last 3 months (since the move)

Personal

  • Write 3 thank you notes.
  • Empty two tubs (We’re mostly all unpacked, but we have about 5 to 6 tubs that we haven’t unpacked.  I want to take care of these in the next few weeks.)
  • Have another freezer cooking session.
  • Find a physician for myself and DH.
  • Find a dentist for the family.
  • Get up by 5 a.m. every day this week.
  • Exercise one day this week.
  • Crochet one row a day on my daughter’s blanket.
  • Take the kids to the library once this week.
  • Do 5 days of homeschooling with Bookworm and the girls.  
  • Read at least 3 books to the girls or a few chapters of our Little House on the Prairie book a day. 
  • Do at least 15 minutes of ABCMouse.com with Cuddle Bug and 15 minutes of Starfall.com with PB & J Girl 4 days this week.  
  • Find a new book to read and read 50 pages. 

Work

  • Write a book review for The Year of Living Dangerously and schedule it in advance. 
  • Write 2 other posts for my blog.
  • Write 5 posts for those I work for.
  • Decide on a regular publishing schedule for Mom’s Plans.
