November Goals Recap and December Goals

Well, to recap November, I basically was a big fat failure...

*Study 5 days a week in 1 Corinthians. I studied...but not 5 days a week.
*See a movie with Gregory. Wow, I totally forgot this one was even on here...we just didn't have the money though.
*Continue making bed. I did do this, but not as well as I would like.
*Stick to our budget again. It's pretty easy to do when there isn't too much money to budget with! ;)
*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. Total fail...I didn't keep up with cleaning like I'd like. Boo.
*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. Fail...didn't do it every day. I did do it majority of days though!
*Memorize (really memorize) at least 4 Bible verses. SUCCESS! I am very proud that I did this one. I memorized
Philippians 4:6-7
Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, present your requests unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 2:11
Let the woman learn by silence with all subjection.

Ephesians 4:29
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

God definitely used one of the verses to convict me they're doing their job!

So...I definitely get an F for my November goals...I think part of my problem is that a lot of my goals are daily ones...and if I miss one day out of the whole month simply because it was an off day, I failed...and then I get mad at myself and don't even want to continue.

I need a solution to this. I think I'm going to give myself weekends off, and hopefully that will help me be much better.

So here goes...
December Goals
*Complete all of my 25 Random Acts of Kindness.

*Study 5 days a week in 1 Corinthians.

*Make a weekly to-do list, and complete it! I learned a while ago that a weekly list is way better than a daily one. I'm much more successful with this.
*Do at least one load of laundry 5 days out of the week.
*Memorize at least 2 more verses, and still remember the last 4.
*Homemake any bread-like side (sandwich bread not included) that I serve to my family. I really want to weed out trans fat from our diet, and store bought bread, cinnamon rolls, etc. really have so much of it. So I will homemake all that stuff. I do have one more package of store-bought cinnamon rolls that I'll serve, but after that, it'll all be homemade. I made homemade dinner rolls last night so we're off to a good start!


  1. Yum! Post your bread recipes! I always say that I am going to make our breads too, but then I end up not allowing enough time for rising/baking so we end up going without bread... which isn't bad except that I like bread :)

  2. So those parker house rolls look like a pain in the butt to make!

  3. Well, yes. They're quite time consuming...hence the reason we can buy store bought bread. But they're so much healthier, and so much cheaper, and so much tastier!
