Goal Planning Monday--Week 3

”Your

A quick update on last week's goal. I did get the linen closet cleaned out and got new towels for everyone. The kids were excited that they got to pick out their new towels--when you are 3, 5 and 9 it really is the little things! Of course, even at my age, I love getting new towels! My goal of walking didn't work out because Molly was sick much of the week. So, I didn't make it to baseball practice which is when I am trying to walk. I did send a couple cards out this week. I also did really well with staying off of the computer. To be honest, I do have an iphone so I can check my email and the Crew Forum on that--I couldn't live without that! But my goal was just the computer and I did that--YAY--that was a big one for me because I spend way too much time on the computer. My hobby is looking for new curriculum on the computer as well a reading blogs about homeschooling and parenting. I didn't do very well with my Bible reading this week either--When you have a sick little one lots of things get put off--I know this one should not, but it did this week. I got through Mark 12.

Now, this week's goals:

1. Organize Hall Bathroom--If you know the layout of my house you may have noticed I was going from back to front in organizing, so if I stuck with that the boys' room would be next. Well, that's just too big of a task to tackle, so I am skipping their room as well as Molly's room and moving to their bathroom. The boys are going to be out of town for a few days in April so I will tackle their room at that time! For now, it's the bathroom-this one should not be hard. I am hoping that Steve will have time to finish the floor trim in their too this week. We will see how that goes though, since the boys have baseball practice every night this week and opening day is Saturday!

2. Walk 3x --Hopefully I will make it to baseball practices and be able to walk this week. As long as no one is sick I should be good!

3. Read Mark 12 - Luke 16

4. Lesson Plans -- We have 8 weeks until our standardized testing and I like to be finished with our curriculum at that time. So, I am planning on sitting down and finishing rough lessons plans for the next 8 weeks, to make sure we finish on time. With Paul this is fairly easy. He moves along at a pretty steady and predictable pace. For Zach it's a bit more of a challenge. I never know if he is going to get a new concept immediately or if it is going to take a few days. I am going to try to plan it out roughly though so I will have an idea of what we are doing. I am expecting a new reading curriculum in the mail for Molly any day now (I am so excited about this one that I am getting to review through the TOS Crew--can't wait to get it and I will tell you more about it after we have used it) so I am going to try and work through that with her over the next 8 weeks as well!!

5. Have boys try on summer clothing -- Since Molly was still sick she and I stayed home from church on Sunday and I took advantage of the extra time and went through a couple boxes of the boys' clothing from last summer. I took out what I don't like and what I know doesn't fit. So now I have two piles of clothes that Paul and Zach need to try on to see if they fit so I will know what they still need for spring/summer. I am hoping to get to that this week. They HATE trying on clothes so this is a definite challenge!

So there's my week...what does your's look like! I am really enjoying this meme and it is really helping me to stay on task.

Hope everyone feels better this week, we've been struggling with icky colds this past week too, so here's hoping it's over for you!

what great goals. I need to sit down and do a Spring cleaning list so I can find things I need to deep clean.. :) Winter is still full force here where I live so I am really looking forward to Spring. I wish I could walk outside but still too cold so I settle for our gym's walking track... I stopped by from the TOS Blog Walk and am now following you.. :)
