My 6 Goals for This Week

Welp, I don’t have much to report when it comes to progress on my goals from last week. But I did spend all day/night Tuesday and Wednesday at the hospital practicing caring for Champ (our little preemie baby boy whom we’re fostering) under the watchful eye of the nurses.

We were cleared for his release on Wednesday night and the rest of the week/weekend has been a whirlwind of adjusting to feeding him every 3 hours around the clock (and learning how to function on less sleep!), getting into the groove of having a newborn again, and figuring out our new normal.

Here’s my goals list from last week:

Last Week’s Goals — 2020 — Week 12

Personal Goals

1. Get in 54,000 steps total. (I use the FitBit Ulta HR to track my steps every day.) 

2. Finish reading Your New NameHome Court Advantage, and Zachariah’s Story. Plus, finish listening to The Body Keeps the Score

Home/Family Goals

3. Read 30 more pages of Carry a Big Stick aloud as a family. (Maybe we’ll finish it this week?!?)

4. Foster care stuff: Organize all of the preemie baby clothes/things. Set up the second baby bed. Get car seat installed.

Work/Blog Goals

5. Finish the rough draft of chapter 8 of my manuscript.

Word of the Year Goals

6. Pop popcorn and watch another classic movie as a family. 

I’m feeling like we’re starting to get back into a groove again, so I’m hopeful that I’ll have more progress to report on goals this coming week. We’ll see!

    I was gonna ask if people mistake Champ as your own newborn when you’re out and about, but then I remembered none of us are out and about these days..🤪

    • Yes, I got a lot of looks at the NICU with my big pregnant belly caring for a little, little baby there. 🙂 But other than going to dr’s appointments and on walks, I’m not seeing anyone — otherwise, I’m positive some people would be quite confused that I am so pregnant and have a teeny tiny baby!! 🙂
