We’re into our 5th week of homeschooling, and though every day is crazy busy, we’re falling into a nice routine.  This makes it a lot easier to meet some goals.  Here’s how I did, and what I plan to accomplish this 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.  Accomplished.  (Now I just need to wait for the sales; I’ve had some nibbles on the items I’ve listed, but no takers yet.)
  • Get back to a lawyer about setting up our will and trust  Not Accomplished.  I think for the time being we’ll be creating one on our own with the help of a kit, and then we’ll get it professionally done when money isn’t so tight.

Personal

  • Finish organizing our homeschool area and write the blog post  Not accomplished.  The area is organized, but I haven’t blogged about it yet.
  • Read at least 3 books to the girls a day  Accomplished
  • Do at least 15 minutes of ABCMouse.com with each girl 4 to 5 days this week  Accomplished
  • Teach the girls from My Father’s World 4 days this week.  Accomplished
  • Have Bookworm practice his multiplication math facts on K5 Learning at least 15 minutes every day   Accomplished
  • Read 50 pages this week  Not Accomplished.  Time slipped away from me, and I didn’t accomplish this one.

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 and August
  • 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?
