I'm not quite ready to quit calling it "Goal Planning Monday," even if it does seem like I never manage to post on Mondays. Next weekend puts us right in the midst of the busiest choral weekend this year so I doubt I'll post next week. That's probably for the best, though. I might need two weeks in order to accomplish all of my goals.
Goals for next week:
1. Finish Christmas gifts and put them in the mail. I've done most of the shopping, but I have quite a bit more work to do for some of the presents. (They're still top-secret so you'll have to wait until after Christmas to see what I'm busy doing.)
2. Blog: I can count three reviews that I really want to get caught up on. I want to post a Christmas cookie recipe as part of the Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange, to give an update on our Read-Alouds (including a change in our day to make life and read-alouds easier), and to continue blogging through the alphabet (halfway-done).
3. I'm designing my own calendar and planner, and I really need to have it finished before the New Year starts. I actually need it now, but I can make do if I get it done in the next week or so.
It seems like such a short list now that I've typed it. I'm not sure that it's any less overwhelming, though.
I'm sharing this post with my friends at Real Life Unscripted, where a bunch of us gather to share our goals and encourage each other along the way.
