As I mentioned on Monday, I took a week to rest and recoup last week so I didn’t set any goals to work on other than a daily nap and making sure we were still eating three meals a day. This week I’m feeling refreshed and back on track, ready to tackle some items that have been on my goals list for several weeks now. Here are my goals for the next seven days:
1. Reading lessons with Amber five times – I need to be more consistent with this, so I’m setting a goal for myself and a reward for her to help us get there.
2. Write lesson plans for the rest of the Prairie Primer unit we are studying
3. Make three busy bags for Georgia to do during school
4. Catch up on grading schoolwork
1. Make cookies with Amber – she made a mix at American Heritage Girls and has been begging to make them with me
2. Do a freezer/fridge/pantry inventory before I get grocery money next week so I can make a list of what we need
3. Check my stock of mixes and mix up batches of whatever I’m low on. I love my Make a Mix cookbook for this. There are several mixes in this cookbook that I use on a regular basis.
4. Decide what dishes I will make for Thanksgiving.
1. Rearrange the living room, move the chair to our bedroom and reassemble the modular couch – this has been on my list for several weeks but we were too busy for it to be a priority. I’m hoping to finally get it done this week now that we’re done with our major seasonal clothing swap.
2. Price window shades for the front living room window.
3. Make Halloween costumes and hot chocolate and apple cider to hand out to parents while their kids are trick or treating
4. Decorate the house for fall
5. Finish a declutter sweep through the house to gather donations for the church yard sale next Saturday.
1. Do something to bless Michael – This week I bought him a bag of his favorite candy (100 Grand bars) and sent him a picture of them in a text, telling him he’s worth more than 100 Grand to me.
2. Do something to bless someone else – The hot chocolate and cider for parents on Halloween will be my random act of kindness this week.
3. Read three more chapters in Galatians for You by Tim Keller – I’ve enjoyed the first three chapters so I’m aiming to read another three this week.
4. Finish a baby blanket I started over the summer and finally give it as a gift.
What are your goals for the week?
