Last Week's Goals
Read through the
book of Acts
Finished a little over half of the book.
Give my husband
a really nice massage with essential oils as he's been having shoulder
read-aloud this week.
Have the kids
deep-clean their bedrooms which look like the sites of a bean-bag explosion and
a bead tornado.
Wash all the
sleeping bags and laundry from our camping trip.
Clean the guest
room out when company leaves.
Visit a cousin
and her sweet kids in another town, a fun "summer get-together" both of our kids
requested this year.
Write to our
sponsored child, Worke.
9. Water my mom's garden for her while she's out of town.
Ended up not needing to do this, since my Dad, who was supposed to do it, actually did it!
Be in bed every
night at 11pm.
Most nights, but not all!
10. Do Pilates 1x, go for two 20-30 min. walks,
Only jogged once! I was pretty tired and not feeling 100% this week so exercise got put off.
I got on a roll and deleted at least 10,000 photos.
But still hundreds of thousands more to go!
Came away with another apple-box full of stuff to get rid of.
birthday gift and prepare birthday meals/decorations for his family party on
receipts and figure out my monthly budget.
This week's goal:
After 3 straight weeks of hosting company and being as busy as bees, I'm taking a week of Sabbath to be refreshed before we begin the rigors of academics again. So, my goal for this week is to rest, relax, enjoy the kids, read a lot of fun books to them, play some board games with them, have lots of playdates and try to beat the heat as it is supposed to be 95 every day this week. Of course, as a Mom, I'm never truly "off duty" and there will be plenty of things I need to do, like the never-ending mountain of laundry, but I'm going to have a week of calm and rest insofar as I'm able!
