Monday Meanderings: October 15-21


Once again I've managed to go through another week without getting into any real schedule and routine for the week. I hate living from "fire" to "fire". I mean, I don't mind the variety of the days but what I hate is after I've put out the fire, and the emergency situation is taken care of, I am still facing mounds of laundry, a messy house and everything else that needed to be done but got ignored.

Thanks to Tiany's idea to post our goals and plans for the week I can start fresh this week. Here are my goals which I hope are reachable this time.

Bible Study/Devotional plan: Sticking with the same reading plan. Now on week 42. Still haven't done the catch up reading but I'm not going to beat myself up.
Must Do:
1. Financial-- File expense reports for at least two months, Fill out, copy and mail health insurance claim forms
2. School -- turn in forms to teachers to show deposit into the kids' co-op accounts,
Return library books and limit myself to only one new book, which cannot be started until Must Do #1 is completed
5. FUN- Buy peperoni for homemade pizza to share with friends this Friday night. Get out autumn decorations and decorate the living room with fall beauty.

Zone: Do Flylady´s challenges for the BATHROOM this week and consistently spend time decluttering the boxes of stuff being stored in the extra bathroom.

Train Them Up: Focus on several quick pick-ups throughout the day. This is the same as last week because we need some "extra help" on this.
