Goal Planning Monday: February 25, 2013

Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. ~Psalm 90:12~

At least two people in our household were sick every day last week.  Even though I wasn't one of them until the end of the week, it really took the wind out of the sails as far as getting anything done around here.  
  1. Plan a 1930's Family Game Night. Partially done. It's planned, but we decided to put it off for a week because we were all sick this past week.  It's on my calendar for Friday night, so hopefully nothing will come up to postpone again.
  2. Grading, schoolwork, and co-op. Partially done.  I should have used the downtime when the kids were sick to update the grades and their assignment lists, but I didn't.
  3. Declutter challenges. Not done. I didn't get very far at all, sadly.
  4. Baking and meal planning. Partially done. It took until Saturday evening for us to bake anything (I even blogged about it here: Hamentaschen) and I didn't bake bread at all.  I did a few decent meals, but since most of us were sick at some point during the week, that seemed rather a pointless effort.  
  5. Blog goals... Progress. I finished what I need to and worked on several drafts so I think this is the closest to "complete" of anything on my list this week!
  6. Personal study and reading. Not done. I was busy with other things when I was healthy, and slept instead of studying when I got sick.  So I refuse to feel guilty about it this week.  
  7. Reorganize in the basement. Not done. Not even an attempt.  It kind of got dropped from the priority list once I realized we all had the plague.
  8. This week's errands and to-do list: complete. Remarkably.
Since we're still recovering from the plague, as we like to call it, I think I'll just take another run at the things I was supposed to do last week.
  1. Grading, schoolwork, and co-op. Hopefully we can at least do our schoolwork as scheduled this week.  We didn't do much last week, and it put us a week behind in everything.  Most worrisome to me are the review items that we are working on.  There are a couple things we will need to "double up" on this week to make up for it.
  2. Declutter challenges. Fortunately, the challenges on the calendar for this week are again fairly easy for me, so maybe I will have a chance to catch up.  If I manage my time well enough, and we all know that is a huge "if".
  3. Baking and meal planning. Think we'll stick with comfort foods until everyone is mended.
  4. Blog goals... continue working on the upcoming Blog Hop posts I need to have ready, and my first review of the new Schoolhouse Crew year should be done this week.  I had originally scheduled it for tomorrow, but after all the sickness, I'm thinking I will not have it up until the end of the week.
  5. Personal study and reading. I am thinking this week my study time will be Tuesday night.  That's the plan at this point anyway.
  6. Prepare for worship team practices. Our new practice schedule for worship teams starts this week, and I will need to sort through the music and decide what we'll start working on at our first practice.
  7. Taxes. 'Nuff said.
  8. This week's errands and to-do list includes: choir, CAP, church activities, co-op, a vehicle repair, and the necessary grocery and library trips.  I also need to sort out a miscommunication, schedule a homeschool meeting, and just get some stuff on my desk looked after.

Wow! Your goals look a lot like mine. I should use your list to keep me motivated! Awesome. Thanks for sharing! Hope you are all feeling well. My youngest (3) is coughing sounding like a seal, ugh. Praying everyone stays healthy.

Sorry you had so many sick people at your house last week. I hope you are all recovered and you are getting your goals done this week. You are a busy lady.

I don't know how you get this all done... and all those errands and co-op and homeschool meetings outside the house. I don't do any of that and you seem to get that done and still get more done than me.

If, I manage my time well enough. That is my struggle. I waste so much time. The day just runs away before I know it.

I hope you are making progress on many of your goals this week and having much success.
