Goal Planning Monday -- June 25

One of these days I'm going to write my Goal Planning Monday post on Sunday instead of starting it late Monday night.

Last week's goals:

1. Basics: I'm up to date on my Bible reading. My kitchen counter was clean when I went to bed about 50% of the time. I didn't do great on going to bed at a reasonable time, though.

2. More reading. I think we had family reading time each afternoon, and it was relatively quiet for a few of those days. I finished the Robin Cook book I was reading, and I've moved on to school books for next year.

3. More moving goals: Brennan measured all of the furniture for me. I started to clean the mess in the sunroom, but I think I just made it worse.

4. Exercise: Eh. I used the resistance bands for my leg exercises a few times, but I didn't do any push-ups or crunches.

5. Blog: I still need to share about some of our recent activities.

This week's goals reflect a major change -- lots of new moving goals. We had found a house in Arizona, and we were prepared to move directly into it. Unfortunately, due to a number of unexpected happenings with the landlord and the current tenant, that house will not be ready for us in July. 

We don't know yet what we're going to do. The original house will hopefully be available at the beginning of October. We may just find temporary housing until then. Or, we may find something even better to rent.

With these recent changes, my moving to-do list has quadrupled (at least). It's a whole lot different to pack a few suitcases to have while we travel. It's a whole different prospect to think about living out of suitcases for more than two months.

This week's goals:

1. Basics: I don't want to get behind on my Bible reading. Keeping the dishes and the counters clean will greatly reduce my stress level. Bedtime? I'm pretty sure that one won't be happening, but I'll try to be more conscious of whether I'm staying up doing things that need to be done or if I'm just goofing off online.

2. Reading time: Lauren's really fighting me about reading time, and I can't afford to give up now. Plus, I know I'll be better able to tackle the rest of my jobs if I take a rest break in the middle of the day.

3. Finish gifts for Lauren's therapists. Thankfully I have an idea in mind, and it's not too complicated.

4. Gather the school materials that we'll need to have with us so that we can start back to school even if we aren't in a permanent location.

5. Start packing lists including clothes, toys, and kitchen necessities.

6. Gather all of the relevant medical records and therapy evaluations for everybody.

7. Work on my cookbook full of favorites so that I can take it with me.

8. Pedicure: For weeks, I've just been putting an additional coat of nail polish on my toes instead of starting from scratch. This week, I'm going to take a bit of time to pamper myself and do a good job.

9. Blog: It might not be fancy, but I'll share the pictures of the baby butterflies and the story of our geocaching steeple chase.

10. Pictures: Send my Dad new pictures of my kids so that he can update the ones in the frames at their house.
