Weekly Goals for week of January 5

As I was sitting here this morning thinking about everything I want to get accomplished this week, I decided that I needed to start writing out my weekly to do lists again. I did this at the beginning part of 2014 and they really helped me to get things accomplished. So I am going to try again.

This week, the 2 older kids are back in school and I am back to work after having 2 weeks off for Christmas break. I am more than ready for them to be back to school. I love my children, however they have been driving me nuts the last couple of days. I think after a week, they are ready to be back to school.
Anyhow, so this is the week that we get back to normal with a schedule (hopefully) and time to get some things done.

And I have a LOT of things that I would like to get done.....so without further ado here are my goals for this week:

  • Mail Rebecca's pen pal letter
  • Exercise following the ab/squat plan that I am following
  • Dollar Tree trip for napkins, large envelopes and gifts for Rebecca's friend's birthday party (they wanted dog toys and treats to donate to the pet shelter instead of birthday gift)
  • Grocery store 1 time!
  • Post 3 book reviews (I am so far behind in posting reviews...I have 5 to do I believe to be caught up)
  • Laundry - get caught up and stay caught up
  • Balance checkbook 
  • Hang up Bill's man cave sign that I made him for Christmas
  • Go through 2 totes of stuff in the basement and declutter
  • Take donations to Goodwill (I have 2 trash bags and 2 boxes of things full of stuff to donate that I have decluttered since Jan 1)
  • Make list for grocery store and stick to it! 
  • Read to the kids each night.
  • Figure out time to go get Benjamin's blood work done
  • Ben's speech appt.
  • Jacob has an eye doc appt.
  • Ben has an ENT appt.
So there you have it...My goals for the week. I hope I can accomplish them all. The weather here is FRIGID cold and we are supposed to have snow overnight. For now I just want to hibernate and stay warm, but I must get some things done! I hope everyone has a great week! 


  1. First off, I hope you have a wonderful 2015!!!!!
    It seems that our to do list is very much the same. I need to make a run to get us some supplies but I'm just not feeling up to it. I'll blame having to run my son back to college and it taking 12.5 hours yesterday.

    1. Thanks Sonya Ann! I hope 2015 is a great year for you as well.
      And I think if you want to take time off, after having to spend 12.5 hours taking the kid back to college, I would say you can :)

  2. What a great Birthday gift day! And nice job on decluttering. Good luck with the rest of your goals today!

    1. I thought it was a great idea too for birthday gifts. I never know what to buy for Rebecca's friends so this helped me not be so stressed about it.

  3. What is in the air because mine have been driving me crazy too! Too much vacation..... :) Good luck on your list; you've got this, Super Mom!

    1. I love being home with the kids, but I was so glad to send the older two to school yesterday....today they are all home again due to a snow day! LOL
