November Goals

Recap of October Goals
*Continue my studying in 1 Corinthians, studying at least 5 days per week.
This was a total fail...I got out of my studying routine when we moved here because I was so exhausted and would sleep in instead of getting up before the kids to study. After a few weeks, I realized my fatigue was because of another pregnancy, but still, I need to get back into it. I did study some, but not the 5 days per week like I'd set my goal of. I'll try harder in November!
*Deep clean the house, since morning sickness has put a damper on my regular cleaning. Success! I even did things like scrub my washer with a toothbrush...you'd think I was nesting again or something!
*Go out on a date with the hubby for our 6th wedding anniversary. Success. We went to dinner while my parents were in town and they babysat. We still have to go see Courageous like I wanted to though.
*Throw an awesome 4 year old birthday party for the best little man. Success! Working on my blog post about it...
*Stick to our Financial Peace budget! Success!
*Make the bed every morning. (I never do this. I don't see the point in making the bed when you're just going to get in it again that night...but I know my husband appreciates climbing into a made bed.) This was half success/half fail. I did NOT make it every morning...however, I DID make it most weekdays throughout the month. I stink at it on the weekends. I'm usually out of bed before Greg on the weekends (especially Sundays) so I don't go back to it to make it. On a side note I must admit, climbing into a made bed is kind of nice!
*Don't let clean laundry pile up before folding it. With a made bed, I'm way better at this because I fold it on our bed, and then since it's there, I HAVE to put it away!
*Learn "Your Great Name" on guitar. Total fail. I'd wanted to sing it for a special at church and I found out our Ensemble team is singing it this Sunday, so I put this one on the back burner...
*Repair Kylee's bows...not really "repair," but I want to add a strip of hot glue to all of them to make them "non-slip" in her hair, and I just haven't dug out my hot glue gun to do it. Success! *Hang pictures in Kylee's room. Success! I ended up putting them on the top of her dresser, but at the beginning of the month, I didn't even have them in a frame.
*List everything on Craigslist I've been meaning to sell. Success!

November Goals
*Study 5 days a week in 1 Corinthians.
*See a movie with Gregory.
*Continue making bed.
*Stick to our budget again.
*Clean at least 15 minutes per day, excluding Sundays. I discovered the FlyLady in October, and I'm trying to implement her suggestions to get in a good cleaning routine before I have three little munchkins.
*Do (at least) one load of laundry per day, excluding Sundays. It stresses me out when I let it pile up and I have a ton to do at one time.
*Memorize (really memorize) at least 4 Bible verses.

I think that's it for now!

  1. I love Flylady!!!! I've been using her site for years now. I don't follow her "rules" exactly, I've tweaked them over the years to fit my lifestyle and routine....but, for the most part, I FLY every day now without thinking about it. :)
