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.

3. Get at least 7.5+ hours of sleep every night.

4. Read and blog through Simply Tuesday.

5. Finish special downloads for my book launch.

My 6 Goals For This Week

So, as I shared about in my Morning Motivation Show this morning, last week was a hard week for me. But it was also a good week because I learned more about giving myself grace and not listening to the inner critic.

6 Goals For This Week (& yes, I’m taking another week “off”!)

10 Goals For This Week

So my goal for last week was to rest. And it was SO good — especially after my surgery was behind me! Because I ended up getting sick for a few days in addition to my surgery recovery, I got very few of my goals finished. But because I did get in so much rest, that was more important, right?

This week, my goal is to take it easy and rest some more. I’m going to gradually ease back into life, but I’m going to make sure that I’m getting enough sleep at night and not overdoing during the day.

Last Week’s Goals:

Marriage/Mothering/Homemaking Goals

1. Finish reading one read aloud book with the kids.

2. Write a love note to Jesse.

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

Personal Goals

4. Get at least 7+ hours of sleep every night.

5. Finish reading two fiction books.

Ministry/Hospitality/Friendship Goals

6. Write notes to the Compassion children we sponsor.

6 Goals For This Week (& why I’m giving myself a break!)

6 Goals for This Week

The past 10 days have felt like an emotional roller coaster ride for me. There were a lot of unexpected things thrown at me all at once. By the grace of God, I made it through. But it left me feeling drained and physically and emotionally exhausted… and more than a little tired!

Case in point: I wrote this on Instagram on Friday when I was in Maryland at a conference with my friend, Tam:

The hair dresser says my hair is blond. I don’t usually think so, but maybe it is considering that in the last 24 hours I have:

1) Almost left my hotel room to go to an event only wearing one big earring.

2) Forgotten which hotel room # I was staying in (had to go down to the front desk to ask!!).

3) Couldn’t find the blow dryer in my hotel room and looked everywhere for it in my entire room only to discover it was right on the wall in the bathroom.

4) Got out of the shower to discover I had only shaved one leg!

5) Could not figure out how to get the blow dryer to work. Tried and tried and tried and was starting to just think I was going to have to show up with wet hair when I finally realized that IT WASN’T PLUGGED IN!

10 Goals For This Week

As a result, I know that the best thing for me this week — especially since I’m having surgery on Friday — is to have a quiet week with very short to-do lists and lots of margin time. Because I clearly need some rest and down time! 🙂

With this in mind, I’m sticking to six simple goals for this week…

My Goals From 2 Weeks Ago:

1. Start our fall homeschool schedule.

2. Finish reading one read aloud book with the kids.
