12 Goals for This Week

29 Jan
We had lots of fun last week playing under the coffee table.

We had lots of fun last week playing under the coffee table.


Last week I ended up with a nasty cold that knocked me down for a couple of days.  I’m ready for spring!  

Last Week’s Goals:

Family/Marriage/Mothering Goals

1. Sprout bean seeds with Elijah in a paper towel.  We originally taped the bags on the window but the seeds wouldn’t sprout.  After moving them to a warmer spot they have sprouted!

2. Plan and enjoy a great at home date night for Brandon.  We had fun hanging out together Thursday night.  I made a special dessert that was a complete flop but we had a great laugh over it.  Really Coconut Milk & Quinoa what was I thinking?  We also enjoyed a movie together.

3. Continue teaching Elijah the story of Creation this week.

Personal Goals

4. Read As Silver Refined: Learning to Embrace Life’s Disappointments.  I have two chapters left!  

5. Exercise at least three times.  I only made it to the gym once last week but we were sick most of the week.

6. Finish all Christmas thank-you notes!  (I found a list and realized I forgot to write a few.) -Oops I totally forgot about this!

Homemaking Goals

7.  Make homemade Greek Yogurt.-No this didn’t happen either.

8.   Spend two hours working on getting tax info together.  (I’m estimating it will take at least 5 hours to do this.)  -This didn’t exactly happen.  I did start a folder and compile all of our tax related documents that came in the mail.  

9. Spend two hours cleaning the sewing room from top to bottom.  It’s not anywhere near clean but I did make an effort.

Business Goals

10. Sew two items for my Etsy shop that I hope to open soon.  I did sew a bridal shower present does that count?  🙂

11. Print more business cards.  I need to fix our printer….

Ministry Goals

12.  Attend a funeral for a friend’s Grandmother who passed away.

13.  Attend our church’s women’s retreat in Amish Country.   Unfortunately this was cancelled.


This Week’s Goals:

Family/Marriage/Mothering Goals


1.  Take Elijah to Storytime at the Library and swim lessons.  I would also like to take him swimming this week.

2.  Read two chapters of Little House Farm Days to Eli.

3.  Begin reading Sweethearts for a Lifetime.  Isn’t that the best title?


Personal Goals

4. Exercise at least three times.  

5. Finish all Christmas thank-you notes.  I’m embarrassed these still are not done.

6.  Call a friend to catch up.

Homemaking Goals

7.  Watch a fun movie and work on getting tax info together for the entire length of the movie.  🙂

8.  Come up with a nice housewarming gift for some friends.

9.  Attend a Photoshop class.

Business Goals

10.  Fix printer and have my Laptop fixed.  (It’s been a rough week technologically speaking.)

Ministry Goals

11.  Decide on the direction of our Spring Ladies’ Bible Study.

12.  Send two cards this week to encourage friends.
