Goal Planning Monday ~ Week 89


 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 it is @ mamamanuscripts. I changed the link to send you to the new place.

Not such a good week. I did better at the end of the week than the beginning, but most things are only partly done, or not done. My daughters leaving for a trip to Texas was more distracting than I thought it would be. I really missed them the first couple days. I hope this will be a better week.

My Goals from last week and how I did:
Spiritual Goals  
  1. Devotions daily -  Reading II Timothy. Partly Done - Only missed one day.
  2. Read The Resolution for Women and apply it to my life. The applying takes more time than the reading. Partly Done - I am really enjoying this book and highly recommend it to all Christian women.
  3. Listen to Godly Music Daily. Partly Done
  4. Pray daily. Partly Done
  5. Read some of My Utmost for His Highest before bed at night. Done
Homeschool Goals
  1. Complete all of school. That means getting Christopher to do all 12 workboxes every day. The only way to do that is to make sure he brings his computer to my bedroom each evening so he has to do all his work and have me check it before he gets his laptop back. Partly Done - I did not keep up like I should and he skipped a couple subjects, I need to do better.
  2. Log Christopher's work into the log DAILY. Not Done
Blog Goals   
  1. Comment on the ladies blogs that link up to Goal Planning Monday. Not Done
  2. Post reminders to my friends/blog readers about Think Back Thursday on Wed., on Facebook groups especially. Remind them of this week's theme and future themes as well so they can work ahead. Done
  3. Post Think Back Thursday. Done
  4. Comment on each person's post that links up for Think Back Thursday. Done
  5. Post letter E for Blogging Through the Alphabet and comment on some blogs that link up. Not Done - Now I need to do E and F, I'd like to get this done by tomorrow at the latest.
  6. Write a post that is NOT linked to a meme. Done
Personal/Other Goals
  1. Turn off the computer between 9 and 9:30. Get back to getting to bed earlier. Partly Done - I know I had my computer off by 9:30 some nights, because some nights I wasn't on my computer at all, that doesn't necessarily mean I was in bed by 10pm. Some evenings I was watching movies and cross stitching Christmas gifts. I have not kept up with this lately, I actually don't know what time I turned off my computer each night. I need to keep track of the time better.
  2. Read. More. I didn't get much reading done in Sept. I want to do better. Done
  3. Work on Christmas gifts and ornaments (I make an ornament for each person in my immediate family each year for Christmas) and this year because we don't have any money to spend on Christmas I am making each person a gift, probably cross stitch or plastic canvas since I have the supplies I need to do those. Done
  4. Work on a brand new writing project. An idea for a picture book for children. Will be an e-book, at least to start. I will write it, hubby, hopefully, will illustrate it. Not Done - didn't work on it this week.
  5. Log books in to book collector. I need to get the tubs out of our bedroom so hubby and I have more space. Not Done - didn't work on it this week.
For this week that is 7 Done, 6 Partly Done, and 5 Not Done

  2. Read. More. I didn't get much reading done in Sept. I want to do better.
  3. Exercise at least 1 or 2 times. My lower back has been hurting me as well as my knees. I need to exercise. I need to loose weight but that is hard with our financial situation. Exercise, however is something I can and should still do. Hubby bought me some batteries just for me to use on the Wii.
  4. Work on Christmas gifts and ornaments (I make an ornament for each person in my immediate family each year for Christmas) and this year because we don't have any money to spend on Christmas I am making each person a gift, probably cross stitch or plastic canvas since I have the supplies I need to do those.

  6. Log books in to book collector. I need to get the tubs out of our bedroom so hubby and I have more space.
  7. Do better with housework, especially the kitchen and dining room. We have gotten lazy. Gotta really get a handle on it today because...
  8. Show hospitality and love to Court's Aunt June who will visit tomorrow. An enjoyable, not hard, job. She is a sweetie. We have been to her home in western PA a couple times since we were married and she came to visit my husband's family in the Salisbury, MD area a few times while we lived there or while we were visiting down there. But, this is her first time in our home.
That's my goals for this week!! Do you have any goals? You should. You will get a lot more done if you think about what you want to accomplish with your week. Post your goals and link up. The button at the top will take you to the meme and you can join up with us.

I need to do better at keeping up with housework too! I have a couple weeks to whip this place into shape before my parents come.

Have a great week!
