What I Accomplished This Week and Goals for the Week of October 8th

I almost finished everything on last week's list.  I am totally liking all of this accountability.  Even if no one really reads my list, someone might, and I don't want complete strangers to think I am a slacker!

Weekly Goals .... Week of October 1st (Last Week)
Family:
  • Start Bible study with kids.  If one lesson counts as starting, then we did start.  I am going to have to give some thought to just how this is going to fit into our day.  Since the kids start school stuff at different times, it is making it difficult to work in first thing in the morning.  The fact that Marshall doesn't actually start fully functioning until noon is a hindrance too.
  • Write Gene a love note.
  • Check two things off the bucket list.  A trip to the farm market and clearance priced caramel apples from Walmart.  We still may make home made caramel apples!
Personal:
  • Exercise four times (two on the treadmill). I only got on the treadmill once.  I did exercise four times.
  • Lose four pounds. Ha!
  • Three blog posts. Done, sort of!
Homemaking:
  • Organize sewing basket.  So nice not to have to search in the big cabinet when I need hand sewing supplies.
  • Complete living room list.  All done.  No cobwebs, all the movies are in order.  All the glass is dusted.  Everything is ready for Christmas decorating.  Now just to maintain.
  • Put out Halloween decorations.  We even went shopping for a couple of new doo-dads.
Finances:
  • Make spending spreadsheet and update.  It is eye-opening to see how much money we are spending.
  • Keep Christmas budget spreadsheet current.  Just a few things so far.  Hopefully I can keep the budget under control this year.
  • Menu plan around grocery dealsKind of amazing to actually know what we are going to have to eat every day.
Holiday:
  • Nine squares completed and assembled I actually completed three sets of nine.  This is going more quickly than I hoped.  Maybe I can finish it next week.
  • Complete cross stitch.  Finished!!!!!!  Now to frame it!
  • Finish one gift.
School:
  • Lesson for co-op on elections.  Done, Although I did not have to teach!
  • Check in with kids' school every day.  Still a work in progress.  I did check in, but not in a very timely manner.

Green items have been forwarded from last week's list. Blue items are ongoing until they are finished or become a habit.
