This Week's Goals

Happy Monday!  I hope that your week is off to an excellent start.  We actually spent the majority of last week visiting family in Arkansas.  It was so fun spending time with cousins and Brandon's side of the family.  The picture above includes my children, three of my nieces who live in Arkansas, and their great grandmother Meme.  Not only does Meme have 13 grandchildren but she also has 17 great-grandchildren so far with one more on the way!  She is one of my favorite people and I am so blessed we were also able to spend the weekend with her.  This week I will be primarily focusing on recovering from our trip.  :)  Here is how my goals from my last week turned out and what I am working on this week.  

Last Week's Goals
Marriage, Mothering, & Family
1.  Enjoy a date with the happy hubby.   We went out to one of our favorite restaurants in Arkansas and then went shoe shopping. It was so much fun!  I actually had running shoes fitted and they feel amazing!  I'm looking forward to breaking these in this upcoming week before we head to Disney World in the fall.    We also took a bike ride together around town which was so much fun.  
2.  One of my kiddos caught a bug so I'll be focusing a lot of attention on helping them get well.   So thankful that the bug only hit one of us!
3.  Spend extra time hanging out with family this week.  Nailed it.

4.  Order prints of photos from the beginning of this year.  This is one of those things that I am always putting off but it is going to happen by tomorrow.  (You can get 99 prints shipped from Shutterfly for only 5.99 through July 5.  Use the code 101SPARKLERS. Six cents for prints is awesome and is my current motivation for getting this done!)   Check.  
5.  Reschedule a number of appointments for Evangeline.  We somehow had a mix up with scheduling.  I am just so thankful that I noticed it!  Check
6.  Change the oil in our van.  Check

7.  Finish reading Elisabeth Elliot's God's Guidance.  Check.  One of the best things about a road trip is the time for reading.  
8.  Sit down with my husband and learn how Logos software works.  He has been wanting to show this to me for months and I haven't made time for it.  I hate that we didn't get around to doing this but we were able to sneak away for some time together.  
9.  Continue working through 1 Peter and write in my journal two times this week.  

Ministry & Friendships 
10.  Write a letter to my grandmother.  


This Week's Goals
Marriage, Mothering, & Family  
1.  Eva has a therapy appointment and a GI appt this week.
2.  Enjoy an at home date with the happy hubby.
3.  Spend extra time reading, playing, and snuggling my kiddos.  Road trips are always difficult on children and I think it always takes them a few days to bounce back.

4.  Make a large Costco haul.  We've been out of town for a week so that means we are completely out of groceries!  I'm also hoping to do a lot of cooking this week.
5.  Catch up on laundry and clean the entire upstairs.

6.  Read and pray through 5 chapters of The Power of a Praying Wife.  
7.  Visit my doctor for a yearly checkup.

Ministry & Friendships
8.  Enjoy a playdate with friends.

9.  Make my final decisions regarding textbooks for the classes I will be teaching this year at co-op.  I also plan to start working on my syllabuses for the fall semester so that I'm not scrambling at the end of summer.
10.  Help my grandmother one day this week.

What goals do you have for this week?
