Weekly Goals

Here's how I did from July 7th-13th (I know, I am so late and behind!)

Personal

Finish reading The Welsh Revival, and write a review for the blog. Read chapters 3-5 of Desiring God. The second half of this goal actually took me all three weeks instead of one. Sigh.

Set a timer for ten minutes every morning, devoted to focused and uninterrupted prayer (during baby's morning nap time). I know this is not the 30 minute end goal, but I'm starting small and trying to work my way up...This happened a few days, and I have been working on it especially this week, but still not yet a daily habit.

Continue memorizing Psalm 34. Get through verses 14-20 (I start one new verse each day). This also took me about three weeks, I didn't work on Scripture memory at all while my family was in.

Make a plan for in-depth Scripture study; which book to study, what tools to use, methods, time table, etc.

Exercise every morning, Monday-Friday. Do work out DVD's on rainy days, go for walks on sunny days. Nope. Also didn't exercise at all while me family was in.... oops!

Marriage

Focus on kind and respectful speech towards Niall while company is here (when people are staying with us and things are crazy and busy, I've found its so much easier to speak to him rudely or short-tempered, etc. I really want to make an effort to honor and love him with my words, despite things being hectic). Ask him every night how I am doing, in a sweet-spirited and humble way, so that he feels safe to answer honestly. I did not ask Niall every night how I was doing, mostly because we hardly saw each other during the time, so there was little opportunity for me to speak to him, whether nicely or not. I did ask him how I had been at the end of the week, and the only thing he said was that I tended to interrupt him frequently. Something to work on!

One special thing for the week: a massage.

Dress up for dinner just one night next week, so that when he walks in the door I am in a skirt or dress :).

Parenting

Read daily to S. Bad mommy.

Spend 15 minutes in focused play time each day, concentrating on the developmental exercises the physical therapist has given us to do. Bad mommy.

Home

Spend 15 minutes every day, Monday-Friday, organizing/purging/decluttering. Not even close.


Spend 15 minutes every day, Monday-Friday, cleaning. Nope.

Make one new meal for dinner (haven't decided what yet!). Fail.

Pick a "domestic project" to do in the month of July. Double fail. At this point, I give up on doing a domestic project for July!

Blog

Get up early on Saturday to write for at least one hour, uninterrupted.

Post Resolution #4 on Monday.
