Goal Planning Monday ~ Week 53


 Time to write some goals and strive to accomplish them this coming week??

after you read my goals.

This week held a lot of unexpected things. Sunday my husband decided that he was taking me with him to his Uncle's funeral service in PA, 6+ hours from our home. I had a lot of last minute things to get done. So, Monday - Wednesday held lots of reading in the car Mon. and Wed. while traveling and Monday evening and Tuesday it was full of family and talking and some tears during the actual service on Tues. Tues. night I did not feel well and kept my hubby awake as well. Wed. we left later than planned because of our lack of sleep the night before but did well on the road. I slept part of the way and read the rest of the way. So... I got a lot of reading done this week... but not much else. Thursday and Friday I was exhausted from the trip and still not feeling well. My boys did school but only the minimum on their own. I was not up to reading to them or doing school with them. Saturday was a full day of catching up on things and Sunday we had Sunday School, Church and then a dedication service for our new building. We left for church at 9:30am and got home at 7:00pm this evening. It was a great day, full of praise to the LORD!

My Goals from last week and how I did:

Lots of goals! It's great to be able to say "done" or at least make progress! I added some reading goals to my list this week too.
