I had great plans for last week.  However, lurking germs had totally different plans!  Not much you can do when your little ones are fighting a stomach bug.  So several of our plans had to be laid aside.

I’m just thankful that it was only a minor stomach bug since there are so many parents out there worried about far worse things happening in their children’s lives!

So not a whole lot of things got checked off of my list.  And since it’s going to be a short holiday kind of week, I’m not even going to move all of those things to this week.  We’re going to focus on food, family, and gratitude!

This week’s goals:

Home and Barn

  • Finish barn pen
  • Bathroom project
  • Sell 5 items
  • Paint some baseboards (I had hoped to get this done in 2015 and am running out of time!)
