Goal Planning Monday

Mama Manuscripts has created a meme titled, Real Life Unscripted, as a linky to post your weekly goals.  I started jotting down my goals here and there but usually never followed through with them and often lost the sheets.  I am tired of this and need some way to hold myself accountable for the things I want to work towards or accomplish.  This week I will post my goals and see whether or not I meet them.

Goals This Week
  • I am reviewing products for the Schoolhouse Review Crew.  I will use Map Trek at least three times on our camping trip. Most of the items that I am currently reviewing are software or subscription items that I am unable to take with us since I won't have a computer. 
  • We will complete a few Math, Bible, Reading, Geography, and Spanish lessons this week.
  • I will write my camping post during vacation and take photographs for the Schoolhouse Blog Cruise.
  • We will read from the Bible as a family every morning.
  • I received my Child Training Bible yesterday.  I will assemble and use it during our vacation as both a resource for discipline issues and character study.
  • I will return library books before we leave so that I will NOT accrue unnecessary late fees.
  • Clean and prepare the house in case there are any showings.  I need to organize Alyssa's toy room better.  The house goes on the market today.
  • I will schedule and plan my July blog posts.  I will aim to blog daily or at least three times a week.
  • I will work on reviews in written form.
  • I will read many books aloud with my daughter. 
  • I hope to RELAX a bit on this vacation.  This week has been very hectic and stressful for our family.  Tension and emotions are high.  We had a close friend pass away and a ton of house projects that needed to be done before the professional shots were taken on Saturday.
  • I will spend some quality time with my husband and daughter.
  • I will start writing at least 5 goals for next week and several categorized goals for the entire month of July. 
  • I will start reading for personal enjoyment this week. I have two books I have been wanting to read.
