My Goals For This Week

Like I told you yesterday, last week panned out very differently than I expected. That’s definitely reflected in the fact that I didn’t cross off many goals.

Last Week’s Goals — 2020 — Week 10

Personal Goals

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

2. Finish reading Risen MotherhoodMade to Move Mountains, and The Gospel Comes with a House Key.

Home/Family Goals

3. Read 30 more pages of Carry a Big Stick aloud as a family.

4. Attend foster care training class on Saturday. (This got cancelled.)

Work/Blog Goals

5. Finish the rough draft of chapter 7 of my manuscript.

Word of the Year Goals

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

It’s looking like this week is going to be a week of my family staying home and self-quarantining and me spending most of each day at the NICU loving on the little baby we are fostering. 

This Week’s Goals — 2020 — Week 11

Personal Goals

    For my last birth I packed an eye mask for sleeping. It was a lifesaver for getting some rest when the nurses had a light on for night checks & getting some rest while we waited for baby to arrive (I had an epidural & pitocin). I’ve already packed it again for this time! I also always pack some comfy nursing bras & snacks.

    tylenol, they charge a fortune for it, plus if your husband need something you are ready. Also a nice pair of non slip socks, chapstick, snacks for hubby and drinks, hairband, & brush, phone charger or power bank. That is all I can think of that I really used:)

    I’m so confused. There is a picture of baby feet, so I’m thinking, “She had her baby!!” But then you have a goal of getting 54,000 steps this week?? That’s not post-delivery resting, soooo did you not have the baby? Or is this someone else’s baby? I’m so confused.

    • Oops! I’m so sorry you missed the news that I mentioned in the post above! We’re fostering a preemie who is in the NICU: https://www.instagram.com/p/B9oeqw0pGV1/ Baby is hopefully coming this week! I’m still pregnant — 34 1/2 weeks and hoping that our in utero baby stays put for at least a few more weeks! 🙂

        Thank you for clearing that up. Ha! After I wrote the first comment, I went back to your MSM Facebook page and figured it out. I haven’t listened to the podcasts in a few weeks since I’m suddenly home schooling the kids. Ha! Crazy times. So great to hear you are still pregnant, and I hope the foster baby is doing much better.
