Here goes my first post of ‘intentional’ goals. I think 5 is a good ‘do-able’ number. Don’t you?
- Clean out my bedroom closet. This entails packing up winter clothes, pulling out spring/summer clothes, and boxing up what doesn’t fit. I will date the box of clothes that don’t fit. If they don’t fit me one year from now, they are going to the Goodwill. I will no longer look at those clothes longingly (if they are too small) or hold onto them just in case I need them again (if they are too big). If they aren’t being used intentionally, they are serving no purpose except to clutter my room and my brain! Everything that is worn, stained, out-dated, or just plain ugly will be bagged up now! Update: Due to some water damage in Isaac's room, his room will be getting a new paint job and a new ceiling in his closet. Therefore, I will be working in his closet this week instead of mine.
- Pull all breakfast and bread recipes out of my overflowing recipe binder. I will put all of these into a new, smaller binder that will better serve its purpose. If I can’t find a recipe, I can’t use it! UPDATE: I started working on this job, and it's a big job. I have TONS of recipes. I have sorted them into categories, and just need to purchase page protectors to slide them in before putting them in the binders.
- Grade and file all of the kids’ work piled up on my desk and enter the grades in my grade book. If I assign it and never give feedback, it has no purpose! UPDATE: I started on this one, too. But it's not finished.
- Sort my printed photos by year/month so I can get them in my Project Life album in a timely manner. If I take a bajillion pictures and do nothing with them, we can’t relive the moments together.UPDATE: I didn't even touch this one!
Get my garden sectioned off and the soil turned and filled in order to start planting my new veggies.If I don’t get my plants in the ground soon, I’m going to miss the growing season.Update: I bought all my plants and soil this weekend. I got two of the three beds done. The third bed is full of ants so we've treated it, and I will complete it when the ants are dead. Update #2 - This job is now complete, and I will post pics soon!
What are your goals for the upcoming week? I’d love for you to leave me a comment or link up to your own to-do list for the week.
