Goals for the Week

Last week, I posted about my weekly goals.  They were in the back of my mind each day as I went through my week.  Unfortunately, my progress was not great.  That kinda stinks.  But I'm back here today after a long weekend with my family and ready to try again.  I can do this.  :)
First up is a recap of my goals from last week.  
Marriage/Mothering/Homemaking Goals

1.  Write a love note to my husband, as we just celebrated 12 years of marriage yesterday.
2.  Get unpacked/everything put away from weekend at the beach.
3.  Buy food for the fellas to eat while I'm out of town this weekend.  
Personal Goals

4.  Hit 10,000 steps on my Fitbit everyday OR 70,000 steps for the week (Sun. - Sat.)
5.  Be intentional walking a mile everyday (part of a challenge in which I'm participating).
6.  Complete another row of baby blanket for Baby Nephew on the way.
7.  Wake up by 8:00 everyday. 

Local Ministry/Hospitality/Friendship Goals

8.  Send a note to a grandparent this week.

Business Goals

9.  Prepare myself for upcoming homeschool conference.  
10.  Prepare my blog for the conference.  
So, as you can see, not the best progress.  However, this is a new week and I'm ready to try again.  I also realize I need to be sure to manage my expectations.  Last week, we were coming off of a weekend trip to the beach and just a few days later I was heading out of town for 3 days to attend a homeschool conference.  The excitement is never ending, however, as this weekend is our biggest event for Cub Scouts.  We are having our Advancement Banquet on Saturday night.  I've got about 50 things that need to be done before then.  I'm so excited to rest on Sunday!
This week's goals:
Marriage/Mothering/Homemaking Goals

1.  Set aside some time in this very busy week to completely unplug and enjoy time with the boys.
2.  Do something for Adam that will show him how much I love him (I want to work on a project for him, but don't want to say what in case he reads this before I get it done!).  
3.  Make master bedroom a clutter-free oasis of relaxation.  :)

Personal Goals

4.  Walk a mile each day.
5.  Be in bed by 11:30 pm.  
6.  Drink 60 ounces of water each day.
Local Ministry/Hospitality/Friendship Goals

7.  Work on plan to find a family-oriented service project for the summer.
8.  Send a note to a grandparent.
Business Goals

9.  Hold Usborne Books & More Facebook Party.
10.  Send email to company I met with last week at conference to establish our partnership expectations.

There you have it.  Those are the things I'd like to complete this week.  Really, the list is incredibly longer.  If I made a list of all of the Cub Scout stuff I needed to get done, it would absolutely be much, much longer than this.  I think that's the point of this goal list, though.  There are other things in my life I need to remember to get done that don't have anything to do with Scouts.  This isn't a typical week, either.  Our end-of-the-year banquet is our largest event and it's happening in just a few days.  I suppose it makes sense that I'd be significantly busier than usual.  Better get busy....

(Pssst.  If you'd like to link up your goals, head over the Money Saving Mom and check out her post on weekly goals!)
