Goal Planning Monday ~ Week 64



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

Join us by clicking on the button above...
after you read my goals.

Goal Planning Monday has a new home - the banner above will take you to the new home for Goal Planning Monday @ Real Life Unscripted even though it says ti is @ mamamanuscripts. I changed the link to send you to the new place.

This was another terrible week. I was still struggling with my sinuses/allergies. I now have antibiotics but things don't seem to be getting much better. I am just starting day 4 of the medicine. Pray it does it's work and I don't have to go back to the Dr. I had 2 sleepless nights and so did not get as much done this week as I had hoped. I pray this sinus infection goes away and I can get back to my productive self.

My Goals from last week and how I did:

Spiritual Goals 
  1. Devotions daily - for the next few weeks, or however long it takes, I will be doing How People Change and How People Change Study Guide: How Christ Changes Us by His Grace. I have wanted to work on this and have not had the extra time. It has a lot of scripture, especially in the homework of the Study Guide. I will not be writing in my journal. I will be writing in the study guide.  Partly Done - I did not do devotions every day. I did finish reading chapter 6. I did not get to the study guide for this chapter yet.
  2. Listen to Godly Music Daily, as part of my morning Devotions. Partly Done
  3. Pray daily. Get the requests from my internet friends, Growth Group and Ladies Bible Study put onto notes and into my prayer book. Partly Done
  4. Read Power of a Praying Wife and leave hubby a note for each chapter I read. He needs the extra prayers and encouragement. http://zaazu.com   Not Done
  5. Read some of A Morning Cup of Prayer for Friends. Done - Up to page 40 now.
  6. Read some of My Utmost for His Highest - supposed to be doing before bed each night... I am way behind. Done
Homeschool Goals
  1. Keep Christopher doing all 12 workboxes. Partly Done
  2. Get Nathan to do all his school. We discovered, after a family conflict, that Nathan is finished a couple of subjects as far as his required hours. So he is concentrating on the subjects he has left. Even though he has less subjects to complete he is not getting them done daily which means he is further behind. If he wants to graduate in May he will have to get a move on!! Partly Done
  3. Keep up with logging in the boys work and grading as we go through the week. Partly Done - I did not keep up with logging in school this week. I have no idea what the boys got done. They probably did not do enough for me to count all 5 days... so we will probably have to add more days onto May. Hope to have a better week.
  4. Spend time on our Astronomy Unit. Partly Done - We did not do as much on this as I wanted... but we did do some.
  5. Read Catherine the Great (World landmark books, 29)  for History. Done - Christopher finished this and is now reading books about Haydn. I am now working on finishing this book. I read a bunch yesterday and will read some more today.
  6. Get the last 8 questions done and then work on the essay for A Man for All Seasons. All done and complete by Friday. Partly Done - We still didn't get the essays done for this. They boys said they needed my help and I was not feeling well, they didn't ask anyone else for help... they just skipped it.
  7. Read a book about Homeschooling. I am working on The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling by Debra Bell. This is a yearly goal and I want to do better on those goals this month. Done
Blog Goals    
  1. Post Blast From The Past on Tuesday. Done
  2. Join in some favorite memes that I like to do and try and leave comments on a few blogs of those who link up. I will not be tracking my linking up but want to do it to encourage others to comment on my blog as well. Done
Personal/Other Goals 
  1. Spend today, Monday, celebrating my dd Jessica's 23rd birthday. My how time flies. This day is for her. We don't have much money but time, that I can spend on her. We will do whatever she wants today, though we will be staying home to do it. We have lots of food planned, so eating will definitely be part of the celebration. Done
  2. Comment on all the other GPM ladies posts. Keep track of their names with links here so I know whose I have done. Not Done
  3. Log books into Book Collector software... at least finish the box of school books I had been working on... it is in my way. Not Done
  4. Read, Read, Read! I will be linking up my reading this year to I am currently reading A A Time to Heal (Quilts of Lancaster County, #2)Time to Heal (Quilts of Lancaster County, Book 2) (type link goes to Amazon, picture link goes to Goodreads). I have books to read aloud for History and Science, for homeschooling, and I need to keep working on Emma by Jane Austen. I started a book on my Kindle. I need to get that added to my Goodreads list. To do that I will have to turn my Nook/Android on and get the title... lol  :-) I can't remember the name of the book. It is really good so far though. I want to make a quantity of time available for reading this week. That means getting off the computer. I have a few books I am working on and would like to finish some of them up. Done - Finished A Time to Heal. Now reading Daughter of Joy , by Kathleen Morgan
  5. Start reading a History book just for my own education. This is one of my yearly goals and I haven't started it yet. Yes, I know, I am already reading a lot. I have a few on my Kindle that I could start and one in my stack of books to read that I could start... not sure which one I will choose. Not Done - This may have to wait for summer. I am to busy reading History books that I assigned to Christopher to finish reading on his own instead of reading aloud together. I have 3 or 4 books I need to finish reading/catch up on, including 2 Henty's and the Catherine the Great book.
  6. Make sure the kids keep up with chores and cooking. My hubby is back to eating gluten free, so that threw a wrench in my cooking plans. I need to work on my menus for April and figure out some things to make my hubby that are gluten free. I will also need to help the kids to create some gluten free dinners or do dad's meal separately until we get things planned and worked out. They all seem to need help with this. Partly Done - We ate every night but not because the boys cooked. Court and I cooked one evening, actually I got the meat out and he did most of the cooking, and Rachel was a big help again... since I am still struggling with pain from my sinus infection.
  7. Figure out what to do about the Saturday chores and get at least some of them done.  Not Done
  8. Scrapbook - either digital or paper. I will not be setting a goal to do both, though if I can fit both in that would be fun. Not Done
  9. Work on organizing and then saving my computer files to our backup drives. I started this last week, but it is taking considerably more time than I thought it would. I need to do this more often so it doesn't take so long. Partly Done - I got the files all sorted and saved to my back up file and my external drive... now I just have to save them to the other family external drive.
For this week that is 8 Done, 10 Partly Done, and 6 Not Done

Hope you feel better this week! So far my allergies have been surprisingly manageable this spring. The "morning cup of prayer" book sounds interesting - I may check it out.
