It’s getting crazy around here.  Fall is always busy because my husband usually has several conferences to attend, and this fall is no different.  We’ll be heading to Boston in a few weeks, and later we’ll be going to Atlanta.  Trying to prepare all of our food for travel as well as homeschooling, doing my work, and shuttling the kids to extracurricular activities has lead to a crazy few weeks!

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 $55 worth of stuff.  Look for a full report on Friday.)
  • Begin to set up our will and trust.  (I’m putting this on the backburner for now.)

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 4 to 5 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 started reading the book, Until We Meet Again about two people who go through the Holocaust and later marry.  Wow.  It’s a great read, and I can’t wait to get to it every night.)
  • Watch a movie with my husband (Instead of a movie, we’ve been compulsively watching 30 Rock.)
  • Make at least 3 freezer meals
  • Find fun, educational things to do in Boston.  (Any suggestions?)

Work

  • Create a blog editorial calendar for the first three weeks of October
  • Put up 2 reviews and giveaways this week
  • Write 7 staff writing and freelance articles this week
  • Make my top 3 posts more Pinterest friendly.  (I updated one–How to Save on Diapers or Get Them for Free!)

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?
