I decided I am tired of just numbering my posts so I am going to start labeling them with my #1 goal for the coming week or some cute saying or if I am stuck maybe just the date.

I had a great week. I accomplished all my goals. That does not happen often. I felt good emotionally this week also. I am not looking forward to the day ahead. Today I have a dentist appointment to get my root canal finished. To say that I am dreading it is an understatement. I am hoping there is no pain like the pain I had last visit. The dentist had to digging out the last bit of live root, it is not a fun thing. I felt every poke. The first poke that caused pain nearly put me through the roof. "This may hurt a little," is the comment I got after that first poke, that made me jump, and clench my hands on the arm rests. The root should be all dead now and so the only pain SHOULD be the novocaine shots. They will drill the temporary filling out and the stuff they put in to make sure all the infection is dead, then they will fill the tooth.Then I will come home and let the family baby me the rest of the day. The next step will be a crown. I have never had one of those so I don't know if it will cause any pain or not. Once the root canal is done, this afternoon, the rest of the week should be good!!! Tuesday my hubby has a Dr. appointment and I have to go with him. The rest of the week is clear.

My top priorities are marked with a *

My goals for this coming week:
Spiritual Goals   
  1. *Morning Devotions - including Bible reading, prayer, listening to music and reading a spiritual book. Read through Proverbs each month. Prayer will be a focus this year as that is my word for 2013. I read Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist by John Piper. And, I will be starting to read Praying God's Word: Breaking Free from Spiritual Strongholds by Beth Moore and I have the journal as well Praying God's Word: Devotional Journal. I love Beth Moore studies. I am looking forward to this. Hubby bought both of these for me recently... just because. Done - A good week. I especially enjoyed my chapters in Praying God's Word.
  2. Participate in the Joy Dare in 2013. Writing down 3 things each day that are gifts from God, things to be thankful for totaling more than 1000 gifts in 2013. Done
Homeschool Goals
  1. Keep up with school. Done
  2. Be consistent with reviewing Christopher's daily work and logging it in. Done - I not only logged in this week's work I totaled up Christopher's hours for Educational Foundations to make sure he will finish that credit. He only needs to read for one hour this week to finish this credit. Yippee!!
Blog Goals    
  1. Done - I forgot to list this as one of my goals, but I did it, so I am adding it in. I commented on the ladies blogs from Goal Planning Monday - I commented at our hostess's blog Katrina @ Mama Manuscripts, I commented on Cristi's blog @ Through the Calm and Through the Storm, I commented at Kym's blog Homeschool Coffee Break
  2. Post reminder and future themes for Think Back Thursday on Wed. Done
  3. Post Think Back Thursday. Done
  4. Comment on each person's post that links up for Think Back Thursday. Done
Personal/Other Goals
  1. Write my weekly goals down on paper, add some details I want for me. Done
  2. Save files to my external drive. Done
  3. *Start Spring Cleaning... we are starting in our very messy, disorganized basement. Done - only a little and there is a LOT more to do but I hope to spend an afternoon or 2 on it this week.
  4. Read. Done - I read and finished Portraits of Integrity vol. III, I am still WAY behind where I want to be. I need to get reading!!!
  5. Done - I am adding this in because I made time to do it this week and wanted to post about it. I finished my 30 day challenge which I was started in January. Better late than never. I am glad I persevered and finished. You, too, can do this 30 day challenge. What does it challenge you to do??? It is for goal setting and accomplishing more in your life.... and it is FREE!! I do recommend it. I did not pay for anything... not even my certificate at the end. Check it out  http://www.30daypush.com/ You can sign up and start at any time. I did not finish in a month and that is ok. You get daily e-mails but you can access the classes at any time. I can go back and watch any or all of them again.
For this week that is 13 Done, 0 Partly Done, and 0 Not Done.

  6. Write and post my Monthly Goal post for April.
Personal/Other Goals
  1. Write my weekly goals down on paper, add some details I want for me. 
  2. Save files to my external drive.
  3. *Work on Spring Cleaning... we are starting in our very messy, disorganized basement. If we, as a family, don't work in the basement then I need to get something else done... like deep cleaning my bedroom and washing my bedroom windows... or something! I have to get started before the weather gets to hot.
  4. Read. Read. Read.... I am way behind. I should get some reading done on Tuesday while waiting at the Dr. with my hubby. I really need to finish at least 2 books this week.
  5. *Write a letter and Doodle a card. Yes, in this day and age of technology I am going to take the time to doodle a hand made card and write a letter and send them by snail mail. I may type the letter on the computer though and print it out to save my hands... is that cheating?? I will sign it by hand, does that make a difference??? Maybe I should just write it all out by hand?? I can't decide.

I will say the crown is uncomfortable...but nothing like a live root. :)

They are both horridly expensive, esp when they are done to the same tooth. (I have deep crevices and weak teeth.
