Bookworm has finished his first quarter of work, and I’ve submitted his grades.  We’re taking a few weeks off before starting up again, so this week, I’ve tried to make my goals a little easier.  I think we’re all going to enjoy the break.

Here’s my simplified goal list for the week:

Last Week’s Goals

Here’s what I set out to accomplish last week:

Financial

  • Spend two hours listing items around the house to sell.  (Yes!  I have sold another $10 worth of stuff.  Look for a full report on Friday.)
  • Finish updating the budget for October.

Personal

  • Write the blog post about our homeschool area 
  • Register the kids for some theater performances we plan to watch this year.
  • Take the kids to the library at least once this week
  • Read at least 3 books to the girls a day (We are reading 4 to 6 books a day.)
  • Do at least 15 minutes of ABCMouse.com with each girl 2 to 3 days this week
  • Teach the girls from My Father’s World 4 days this week.  (Lucky for me, PB & J Girl loves school and gets on me if I ever try to skip a day!)
  • Have Bookworm practice his multiplication math facts on K5 Learning at least 15 minutes every day
  • Read 50 pages this week (I finished reading Until We Meet Again about two people who go through the Holocaust and later marry.  It was a great read.  Look for a review next week.)
  • Watch a movie with my husband (Instead of a movie, we’ve been compulsively watching 30 Rock.)
  • Freeze our fresh vegetables from the garden.

Work

  • Put up 2 reviews and giveaways this week
  • Write 5 staff writing and freelance articles this week
  • Make one of my top 3 posts more Pinterest friendly.

Long-Term Work Goals

These are items that I don’t expect to finish completely this week, but I’m listing them here as a reminder to myself and would like to finish them within 3 to 4 months:

  • Organize the recipes on my blog
  • Finish my blog redesign
  • Finish my writer’s website
  • Get a newsletter up and running
  • Do my accounting books for July, August, and September
  • Research new areas where I could freelance.  (My income is composed of 3 revenue streams, and over the last 5 months, 2 of those revenue streams have proven to be highly unstable.)
  • Update my blog categories

What goals do you hope to accomplish this week?
