This Week's Goals & Review


Happy Tuesday!  Whenever I am late to share my list of goals for the week it either means I have been traveling or my week is not going according to plan.  Unfortunately it is the latter.  I'm suffering from some serious back pain which started at church on Sunday morning.  I've been to the doctor and the majority of my week will be spent walking and taking it easy.  No gardening and no deep de-cluttering like I had originally hoped.  I'm hoping to spend time sufficiently resting this week and catching up on some computer work.  

Last Week's Goals

Marriage, Mothering, & Family
1.  Enjoy taking the children to the bike rodeo in town.  I'm still not entirely sure what we have signed up for but I am sure it will be fun.  I had never even heard of a "bike rodeo" before I saw the flyer!  It was pretty fun and both of the children had a blast!  They learned about bike safety and rode their bicycles through a number of obstacles.  Eli was thrilled! 
2.  Eva has one therapy appointment this week.
3.  Read and pray through five chapters of The Power of a Praying Wife.  

Personal
4.  Read 100 pages from The Out of Synch Child.  This book came highly recommended by one of Evangeline's therapists.  Since it is an inter-library loan book I better start reading!  (We can only keep inter-library loan books for two weeks.)  With my back injury I actually finished reading the book yesterday.  
5.  Exercise three times this week.  I'm hoping to enjoy at least one of these workouts at our gym.  I did make it to the gym for a great workout but I ended up only exercising twice.  

Homemaking
6.  Spend two hours organizing financial paperwork.
7.  Sew a birthday gift for my niece.  In the end I did not sew a birthday gift for my niece.  I opted to travel out of town to visit my grandmother for the day and I really did not have time.  I just purchased an outfit when I visited Rural King.  
8.  Spend at least two hours organizing the basement.  I still have at least a few hours left to organize and I am disappointed I won't be able to work on it this week.  

Ministry & Friendships
9.  Enjoy a picnic at the park with friends.  It was so fun to enjoy a picnic and catch up with a number of friends.  

Other
10.  Help my grandmother one day this week.  Check.

This Week's Goals
Marriage, Mothering, & Family
1.  Eva is scheduled for a therapy appointment but I don't know if I will feel well enough to drive her so it might not happen.
2.  We have an out of town day trip planned with the family but it all depends on how quickly my back heals. 
3.  Read five chapters of Ten Boys Who Made History to the children.  

Homemaking
4.  Work on plans for Disney.
5.  Have a budget meeting for August spending and for our upcoming fall vacation.  

Personal
6.  With all of my extra time resting I plan to devote a lot of time to reading my Bible and prayer.  This week I plan to continue studying 1 Peter and complete Week 4 of my Bible Study.  
7. Begin reading None Like Him by Jen Wilkin.   
8.  Spend lots of time resting.  I'm also thinking about possibly trying out one of the aquatic classes at our local gym geared for senior adults that involves a lot of stretching.  It just seems like that type of aquatic class would be similar to aquatic physical therapy?  

Ministry & Friendships
9.  Hopefully spend time visiting with a friend this week.

Other
10.  Order new business cards for both my tutoring business and my piano lessons business. 

What goals do you have for this week?

  1. My big goal for this week is work out a schedule for household chores, school work for my son, and making time to run my business at times other than midnight.

    1. Hi Katrina! Thanks for stopping by. Those sound like excellent goals for the week. I will also be working on our weekly schedule in the next week or so. I think I would like to try a better schedule for household chores. I would love to hear what works for you. What type of business do you have?

    1. Thank you so much. It has been quite the challenging week! Today I feel a little better than I did on Sunday. I'm excited you are going to do Five in a Row with your girls. I think they will love it! Which Five in a Row book are you going to start with? We started Volume 1 this summer.
