We’re in that part of December where every day requires a mini pep talk.  (“Ok, self.  There’s more time before Christmas than you think.  You aren’t as behind as you feel.  Ready…break!”)


I had a pretty lofty goal of getting all of my shopping done last week, but apparently you need to have a general understanding of what you want to buy before you go shopping if you want to cross things off of your list.  I actually did get quite a bit of it finished, I just have a few things left to get.

This is the kids’ last week of school before break, so at least those activities will slow down!


  • Continue cleaning and declutter 3 more bags
  • Fix the dryer Woohoo!  Spent the week catching up on laundry. (Ha, like I’m ever “caught up”)

Money/Frugal Goals The best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today.

Family Goals

  • Jesse tree for Advent  (we are embarrassingly behind)
  • Make cookies (still hasn’t happened yet)

Blog Goals

  • Grow Twitter account to 350 (Not quite, but close!)
  • Get a week ahead on posts (Didn’t make it, but did make progress.)

Personal Goals

After some helpful comments last week, I think I’m going to cut way back here.

  • Daily Bible readings
  • exercise 4 times
  • Finish reading Better Than Before and blog about it
  • Eat 5 fruits and/or veggies per day

New week, new goals!


  • Put up some new Christmas decor Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.
  • Clean and wrap gifts

Family Goals
