Goals for the week – highly susceptible to change

on February 7, 2013

I’m going to belly ache for a moment: This cold has kicked our collective tail feathers. Currently, I’m trying to keep ahead of laundry, dishes and meal-making, while taking care of the kiddos. That’s not left a lot of time for anything else. I started this post on Monday, it’s now Thursday and I’m still working through last week’s goals.

Okay…that’s done. Eesh.

Last Week:

Goals for January 28- February 2, 2013

  • Finalize the list of supplements I need to order for our Gluten- and Dairy-Free trial
  • Order said supplements. ;)
    • (Psst! Have you ever ordered from They have fantastic prices!)
  • Continue to research meal ideas for February.
  • Continue to write out my story of nutritional healing so that I can share with it on this blog.
  • Walk/run three times this week.
    • I currently have a cold, so I won’t be running today, but I don’t want to lose my C25K progress either. Maintenance is the order of the day until I’ve beaten the cold off.
  • Work on the kids’ packing list.
    • Nathan and I are going away for a week in March. With four kids going four different places, I can’t let this wait until the last minute.
  • Strain the herbs off of the Herbal Multivitamin Glycerin Tincture so we can start using it.
  • Call the doctors’ offices that have been recommended to me and see if they’re accepting new patients.
    • I got the phone numbers written down. Does that count?
  • Make progress on one of the kid crafts currently in the works.
    (These “No Sew” pennant banners turned out great! Pics and tutorial to follow.)
  • Work on one of the Creativity Challenge projects.
  • Finish “What’s Eating Your Child?” and start “The Mood Cure.”
  • Write a love note to my husband.
  • Get the Romans Project papers glued into a spiral bound pack of index cards and work on catching up to the current week’s memory verses.
    • Anybody want to be a Scripture Memory Skype buddy? :D

This week:

  • Dishes-let’s get them totally done! (And dried and put away. Our unwanted sub-lessees, an extremely tenacious clan of Argentine ants, really like to try to nest in our clean dishes. Over and over and over this happens. /sigh)
  • Snuggle with kiddos.
  • Keep up with laundry.
  • Get on the treadmill at least once. /sigh x 2
  • The remaining stuff on the list above.
    • And, seriously – does anybody want to memorize Romans 1, 8, and 12 with me? I need a Scripture memory buddy and don’t feel like I know anybody well enough here to ask. Skype is really easy to use and it shouldn’t take too long to set up a weekly call. /puppy dog eyes
