Weekly goals and my new love


Normally I would put the Weekly Goals image first, but I have something so much more exciting this week! I GOT A DISHWASHER! I have been without one for almost 4 years, well I have 3 but they all seem to be broken. One of them does work, it's just sporadic (love you Bill!). This is such a big deal for me, it will save so much time and be easier for me to keep up with the dishes! Can you tell I'm excited? Now to teach the kiddos to load it, already training G! WooHoo! 






Well I didn't do super awesome last week but also not horrible, considering the amount of time I spent at the kids' school or at school activities last week! Plus getting ready for the garage sale, which ended up being very lucrative (partially due to the 18 pints of pickles I sold!). We were able to pay for G's Jr High Camp and purchase a family pool pass! 


Weekly Goals May 7-12
Family Goals
1. Be purposeful about spending fun time together as a family
2. Complete a marriage challenge (more about this next week) -- going to have to wait on this a bit, life got super crazy & stressful last week.
Personal Goals
3. Spend at least 20 min a day studying my Bible
4.  Exercise! I have dropped a few pounds lately and I am only 11 pounds away from the point at        which I will be able to ride our horse, but exercise will be key!
Household Goals
5. Get stuff ready for garage sale!
6. Keep up on laundry/dishes
Wedding Goals (my cousin is getting married in June!)
7. Trial wedding cake -- made up the recipe in cupcake form and it was a hit!!
8. Make a red satin tie for the bridesmaid dresses
9. Make a vest/tie onesie for the honorary ring bearer (who will be a couple weeks old!)
10.  Make a hair clip to match the ties for our bridesmaids dresses so I have an option for my hair!


This is the last full week of school and I am trying to take advantage of every quiet moment!! We have also started our crazy expensive month starting with Mother's Day (though all I wanted this year was relief from my daily chores - it was awesome!) and after 5 birthdays (3 of those being Bill's, mine & G's) a graduation and a wedding it will end on Father's Day. Whew!
