Well another month has flown by and it’s time to re-evaluate and figure out what I’m doing next. Yesterday I sat down and planned out a good bit of our second session of school which will start at the end of August and was pleased to see that even with some interruptions and unplanned events we are going to finish this session where I thought we would….
So here’s a recap of July:
Physical: I haven’t been doing any walking, but we have been biking most weekends. I got a new (hopefully more comfortable) seat for my bike yesterday so I’m hoping to do more biking. I have been doing a lot more stretching which is definitely good for my back.
New Goal: Spend 15 minutes each day stretching and using my hand weights. Bike twice a week.
Spiritual: I’m still having trouble getting much personal devotions done. S’s work schedule has changed enough that he can have family devotions together with us in the morning, but I think I need to stop trying to fit my own reading into my morning hour and instead read and pray after the children are down for naps….
New Goal: Spend time reading and praying during the first hour the children are napping.
Household: The laundry is going much better so I think I can move on to another area I find difficult- cleaning up the kitchen at night. It seems like I just have no energy to do that by the time the children are in bed and S and I have eaten our dinner. Starting the next day with a messy kitchen just makes me feel behind all day- so I know I need to do the cleaning at night…
New Goal: Clear the table and the island and wipe them before bed. That’s about half of the kitchen cleaning but if I can get that down it’ll be a step in the right direction…
School: Finish this session and plan the next one.
Personal: Finish one sewing project and one writing project from my list.
And yes, I know that that is five goals not three but those are the categories of my life so I like to goal set in each one…
