Last week I posted some goals for myself.  Here’s where you hold me accountable!  I didn’t do as well as I might have hoped, because I came down with a bad head cold that knocked me out for a couple of days.  Oh well, it’s a new week to try again!

Here are last week’s goals:

Home Goals

  • paint the front door  See more here.
  • clean the porch and get ready for fall decor: Didn’t happen due to several large wasp nests on the porch! 
  • fix the back door  Finally finished and working great!!
  • repair and rehang the gate for the goat pen (ok, so that’s a barn to do)
  • repair and rehang the gate for the back yard  Waiting on specialty hinges coming in the mail.

Money/Frugal Goals

Family Goals

  • have a date night with hubby, even if it has to be a home date
  • take 2 kids out for one on one time

Blog Goals

Personal Goals

I am terrible at doing things for myself!  I want to be more proactive in this area for sure.

  • get 8 hours of sleep at least 5 nights
  • walk 10,000 steps 3 days
  • make an eye doctor appointment  I had to reschedule when I got sick.


Here are this week’s goals:

Home Goals:  Successful people don't have fewer problems.I like to walk through the house and figure out what a realtor would tell me to do in order to sell the house.  Then I do it for our own family instead!

  • Clean the front porch (assuming wasp removal!)
  • Paint front bench
  • Repair back gate (assuming hinges arrive)
  • Finish installing zipline
  • Clean up and prepare for guests

Money/Frugal Goals:  We are trying to pay off debt.  (sigh!)  For ways we’ve saved money this week, check this out.

Family Goals:

  • Spend time with hubby
  • Spend time as a family at the company picnic
  • Celebrate my birthday!

Blog Goals:  I launched this blog a little over a month ago!  I’m pretty happy with the growth so far.

Personal Goals:  My biggest weakness is doing things for myself.

  • make it to my eye doctor appointment this week!
  • walk 10,000 steps 3 days
  • finish reading Boundaries

So those are our family goals for the week.  What goals are you progressing towards?
