10 Goals For This Week

10 Goals For This Week

Whew! It feels so good — and so weird! — to have my book launch behind me!

After months and months of working on and prepping for it, now that it’s over with, life feels so quiet and my to-do list seems so simple. And it’s good. So good.

While I try to enjoy the power-through sprints when there are big projects and launches happening, I 100% savor the seasons of rest. And I’m so grateful to be heading into one of those seasons after a few very, very full months!

Here are my 10 simple goals for this week:

Marriage/Mothering/Homemaking Goals

1. Write a love note to Jesse.

2. Have an at-home Movie Date with Jesse.

3. Spend quality one-on-one time with each of the kids.

Personal Goals

4. Keep working on the boot cuffs I’m knitting.

5. Finish reading Just Show Up.

6. Make sleep a priority.

7. Start new weight-lifting program.

Business Goals

8. Don’t check email until after 12:30 p.m. every day.

9. Get at least 3 content pieces ready for next week (I’m trying to do a better job of working ahead instead of blogging by the seat of my pants!)

10. Do a Money-Making Mom scope each afternoon at 3 p.m. (Are you joining us for this? If not, you can download the Periscope app and search for my name or @MoneySavingMom to join in live. Or, you can watch the replays on Katch.me/MoneySavingMom)

10 Goals For This Week

10 Goals For This Week

How was your weekend? Ours was really relaxing — which was such a blessing! I’m still getting used to this “Fall weather” that allows you to wear flip-flops and shorts when there are autumn leaves on the ground!

Gratefully, it cooled down a bit on Sunday and I’ve been able to wear a sweater and boots the past two days. But I’m full preparing that I’ll need to pull out the shorts and flip-flops again later this week. Because, welcome to fall in the South! 😉

10 Goals For This Week (+ I’m finally ready to blog about South Africa!)

10 Goals for This Week

It’s hard for me to believe that just a week ago we were flying home from our trip to South Africa! It was SUCH a great trip and I can’t wait to tell you more about it!

But I needed time to get over jet lag. Time to process what I’d experienced. And time to feel like I wasn’t walking around just trying to pry my eyeballs open with toothpicks. 🙂

So I’m excited to finally be back to the land of the living and ready to write about the trip. And oh! There is so much I have to share.

10 Goals For This Week

I decided to kind of take you on a journey with me, day by day, of our trip. So you could get a little peek into what we experienced, what we learned, and how it impacted us.

Starting tomorrow, I’ll be blogging each afternoon/evening about one day or one aspect of our trip — including what we learned about traveling with young kids, how our kids fell in love with South Africa (even though they were apprehensive at first!), some of the fun adventures we had, and the beauty and hope we experienced in the midst of so much need.

I’ll also be sharing more about the work we are participating in there and how you are making a difference in very specific and tangible ways by purchasing products we sell and visiting this site.

10 Goals For This Week

It made me sort of sad to be stain-treating all the red South African soil stains on our clothes… It’s such a beautiful reminder of such a memorable week! But while the soil might wash out of our clothes, our love for South Africa can’t be scrubbed from our hearts. Ever. And now it’s not just me who is smitten; our whole family has fallen fast in love!

Our re-entry has been easier than I expected. Since jet lag was so much worse than I’d envisioned last time around, we cleared our calendar for 5 days after the trip and we took it really, really easy — sleeping at weird times and just letting our kids slowly adjust to the time zone here. We’re mostly all re-adjusted to US time and life has fallen back into a pretty good rhythm (well, other than a not-so-good few hours this morning!)

Here are my goals for this week:

Marriage/Mothering/Homemaking Goals

1. Write a love note to Jesse.

2. Have an at-home Movie Date with Jesse.

3. Finish reading a book with the kids.

4. Watch the Democratic debate as a family (my kids are loving watching all of the debates and discussing all things political right now!)

6 Goals For This Week (+ YAY! I’m finally feeling better!!)

6 Goals For This Week

Last week was a good week. I did a whole lot of resting. And even thought that was hard for me, it was already so good for me.

This whole giving myself grace, taking time off, and taking it super easy has taught me a lot! It’s given me so much more compassion for others. And it’s taught me the beauty of slowing down.

I’m so grateful that near the end of the week, we discovered that the antibiotics I was on for the infection I contracted after my surgery were making me really sick and tired. Once I got off of those, I started to feel world’s better.

Yesterday morning, I woke up and called Jesse (who was already serving at the early morning service at church) and said, “I think I FEEL NORMAL!!! I forgot what it feels like to wake up and not feel completely nauseous and gross and tired! THIS IS AMAZING!!!”

Anyway, I’m so, so, so grateful! Thank you for all of you who have prayed so much for me over the last three weeks. You all bless me so much!

I’m keeping my goals simple again this week so that I can continue to rest — especially since we are headed to South Africa next week and I want to be all rested up for that!!

This week’s goals:

Marriage/Mothering/Homemaking Goals

1. Write a love note to Jesse.

2. Have an at-home Movie Date with Jesse.

4. Read and blog through Simply Tuesday.
