Over on Money Saving Mom Blog, Crystal Pain is sharing with us this week’s goals.  I like goals… I feel like I am heading in a direction and have a map to get there.

When I did my New Year Resolution, I decided to focus on 3 changes each month.

January’s were to be up at 5:30, Start a Prayer Journal, and continue on a Trim Healthy Mama plan.  I did really well! I was up on time for the most part. I am really excited about my prayer journal after watching many youtube videos.  My Trim Healthy Mama was for the most part on plan but I haven’t been consistent there as I should be.

February’s goals are;

  • Continue with January’s goals.
  • Walk 3 days a week
  • Plan something fun with the kids
  • Journal

So with that in mind, continuing on this WEEK’s goals, I will try to incorporate more of my monthly goals.

Mothering/Wifehood (especially with Valentines on Saturday)

  • The way to a man’s heart may be through his stomach but with my dear one a clean home is a happy home.  I want to really put a lot of effort into having the idea of a better homes and garden… not saying it will be one but I would like the feeling that we’re aiming for it.  Everything in its home or gotten rid of if it doesn’t have a home.
  • Read to the children every day.  This is a hard one for me.  During the day there is so much to do and not enough time and I think its a good activity to do before bed so we wind down but I admit, come bed time it’s like “shoo, shoo, I need quiet.”  Love my children but… I also love quietness.  But isn’t that motherhood? Learning to die to self? Yeah… I’ll let you know how this one goes.  Rome wasn’t built in a day.
  • Walk three times a week.  Not gonna happen today (I like Mon, Wed, Fri) so I’ll have to figure out a better routine for this week.
  • Write a few letters and make and mail a few cards.

Business Goals

  • Sew some burp cloths
  • Knit some dishcloths.
