This Week's Goals & an update on last week

We had a blast on a family outing to the local museum center.
Happy Monday everyone!  Hope that you enjoyed a lovely weekend filled with lots of love.  My weekend was filled with fun, love, and snow!  I'm looking forward to spending some time outdoors later this afternoon once our morning work is finished.

Last Week's Goals

Marriage, Mothering, & Family
1.  Enjoy a special family activity this week.  I'm leaving it up to the happy hubby to decide.  We had a lovely time at the local natural history museum.  
2.  Attend two or three appointments with Evangeline this week.  (I'm hoping that I don't have to actually attend one of the appointments and I can just speak to the physician on the telephone.)
3.  Spend time making Valentine's day cards with the children.   
4.  Enjoy special one on one time with both children this week.  Eli and I enjoyed a sweet afternoon time together building Smart Links.  I planned a fun mommy, daughter evening with Eva while Eli went visiting with Daddy.  It totally didn't work.  She was a crab for all two hours and didn't want to do anything fun.  How's that for keeping my goals super real this week?  
5.  Write a love letter to my husband or do something thoughtful for him.  I sewed him a Star Wars pillowcase.  No I am not joking!  

6.  Research various quilt patterns and decide which pattern I intend to use for a quilt for Eli.  I'm also hoping to make a trip to Joann Fabrics in the next week to look for fabric. My mom and I had such a sweet time together spending hours at the fabric store.  I did in fact commit to making a quilt for Eli.  Eek!   

7.  Catch up with a friend on the telephone. Nope sometimes it just doesn't happen.  
8.  Begin a new book.  I'm kind of stumped right now as to what to read next.  Does that ever happen to you?  I absolutely love reading but nothing is jumping out at me.    I started reading Stacy Schiff's The Witches.  

Ministry & Friendships
9.  Begin a letter to a friend who serves as an international missionary.  Nope.  Moving this to next week.  
10.  Wrap and mail a baby gift to a friend who lives out of state.  It should reach my sweet friend any day soon.  Super thankful for a kind husband who mailed it for me!  

Here are the goals that I hope to accomplish this week:  

Marriage, Mothering, & Family
1.  Attend three therapy appointments for Evangeline this week.  
2.  Take the happy hubby out on a date that I plan this week (weather & babysitter permitting).  
3.  Enjoy an afternoon playing in the snow with the kids.  
4.  Begin a new read aloud with the children.  Do you have any suggestions?  

5.  Start compiling all of our information for our taxes.  
6.  Prep all of my fabric and spend an hour cutting out fabric for Eli's quilt.  (All of the fabric has to be washed and dried before it can be sewn.)

7.  Read 100 pages of The Witches.  

Ministry & Friendships
8.  Spend time catching up with a friend.  
9.  Begin writing that letter to my friend who serves as a missionary overseas.  

10.  Spend an afternoon helping my grandmother.

What goals do you have for this week?  Will the weather have an impact on any of your goals?
