    Last week I opened my online editing business! http://www.martincorrespondence.com Plus, I made two big asks to potential clients. This week I want to make two more big asks, clean our downstairs closets, get the dogs to the vet, and pull out suitcases for an upcoming trip!

    I’m impressed with how you work in so much reading time with your children. I struggle in this area. How do you schedule your one-on-one reading sessions? I can usually manage one session with one of my kids during quiet time, but not 3. We read during meal times. I think I might start reading during dinner, too. My husband likes to use this time to talk, but many times we have interrupted conversations throughout because of the craziness of feeding people gets in the way.

      My kids LOVE for me to read to them so that helps tremendously. Jesse has been reading some at night to us, too, so that helps us get even more reading in.

      I schedule the reading sessions with each child as part of their one-on-one homeschooling time with me. Honestly, they enjoy it so much that they typically always make sure it happens. 🙂

      Finally, setting weekly goals for each of the books helps me to be more motivated to stay on track.

  • I have my weekly garden plans and my lesson plans on my blog. I love looking back at what I have gotten done!

  • Annie Kate says:

    Setting monthly goals works best for me, so here is my list for March. It’s a big list, but everything needs to be addressed, so I’m planning some diligent, focused work.

    Our read aloud goals are quite simple: every day after lunch I read aloud to all 4 kids, and I also do Dutch and French read alouds with the children for school. Actually, it isn’t even a goal for us; it’s more of a reward!

    Congratulations on turning in your manuscript! I knew you were writing another book, but I don’t recall you mentioning what this one is about. Or is that still a secret?

  • Anna says:

    How did your scarf turn out?

  • Shelly says:

    This past week I was able to get most of my goals accomplished but my exercising fell by the wayside again. This week I will be working on getting my exercising in right after getting up and since I am getting up earlier it should work out well this week.

    I was able to get some mini corn muffins baked for the freezer this past week. I am going to try to get some ground beef cooked up for the freezer this week. I love having items ready to go in the freezer for when I am short on time. 🙂

  • How silly of me! My old info was saved on here, so the first entry that I did last night on here included my goals from 2 weeks ago! Oops!

  • Victoria says:

    I seriously just clapped for you when I saw the finished and sent in manuscript crossed off, even though I saw it on Facebook earlier this week. Amazing! Still don’t know how you do that much writing with little ones around. I am planning to return to goals beyond all the things I wanted to do to the blog post conference next week. Last week watching and charting how I spend my hours was an eye opener! Now that I have a workable schedule I can better set realistic goals.
