2 Years & 119 Days and Busy Weekend Ahead

I will not be around much the next few days. Serenity graduates from OU and we'll be going down to help her celebrate. I am still working on updating my goals for the next month (which starts tomorrow). Hopefully sometime in the next day or so, I"ll have time to get that done and post them on the blog. Have a great weekend, everyone!

2 Years & 118 Days and progress report

As I have been thinking about some of the goals that I set last month and prepared to update them for another month, I had a light bulb moment. I do not have to be perfect. If I do not meet the goals that I have set, that is okay. I can try again. I know this is obvious to most people, but it really has not been to me. God has worked amazing miracles in me over the last month (chiefly in my attitude) and He's not going to stop now. I just have to keep trying.

So...a progress report on my goals:
Physical: My goal was to walk or do Yoga for the Rest of Us most days. Until the last week, I'd done really well with this, doing one or the other at least 4-5 days a week. However, it was raining a couple of mornings and I felt totally lousy (sinuses) the other mornings and so I went a week without doing anything specific in the mornings (I've also been trying to do more movement with the kids). Anyway, today I walked again and I'll just keep trying!

Financial: The goal was to have $150 in the baby EF by mid-May. Well, that's not happening.

Personal: My goal was to follow the Flylady routines and work on my house. I have been doing a pretty good job of this. Again, not perfect...but progress!

Family: Tom & I went on a date night a couple of weeks ago. I also spent the day with family on Sunday even though I was feeling really lousy because of my sinuses. It was a blessing to spend the day with them and I'm glad I did.

Spiritual: My goal was to do my devotionals and read the Love Dares each day. I have been doing well with that. They have both also been pointed directly at my heart.

Social: We've made it a point to spend time with our friends.

Career: My goal was to work on and improve one area (the playroom) of my business). I've worked on that throughout the month and will choose a new area to focus on next time.

That's the progress report for today. Hope you all have a fabulous day!

2 Years & 117 Days and adjustments

I started a new child this week. He comes at 6:30 in the morning so that is taking some adjusting on my part. I am up that early anyway, but it leaves me less computer time in the morning. Anyway, I never got a chance to get on here and post a blog today. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

2 Years and Days 114, 115, & 116 and Happy Mother's Day (a day late)

How do weekends go by so fast? Oh yeah, because I seem to go non-stop on most of them! LOL. This weekend, I garage saled here in town on Saturday morning, had friends over for supper and game night on Saturday, and then Sunday was church, dinner with Tom & kids, great-niece's birthday party, and church again. Phew!

I hope that all of you moms out there had a great Mother's Day. Mine was good although I felt miserable with a sinus headache most of it.

This week will be the end of my first month working on my new goals that I set as I was reading the 48 Days to the Work You Love book. I will be updating on how things are going as well as setting a new set of goals for the next month.

Happy Monday!
