Finding out I am coordinating with my niece: Priceless
Time to revisit my goals.
Goal #1: My closet. It is still in pretty good shape, I have kept up on the ironing and washing, but I have a couple baskets to fold and put away today. I also need to put my shoes back in neatly.
Goal #2: Be on time. Ummmmm, no. But I have been on time to work and Sol has been on time to school and we all have been on time to church for almost every Sunday. I did lapse last week and came in football holding Wilson with diaper bag dangling and 2 sons dragging right behind. I disdain Sundays without the husband- still, no excuse.
Goal #3: Organize the boys' desk. After a little time shopping around, I decided I wanted something custom. My brother-in-law dropped off this little beauty. It needs finished or painted. I think I will do
chevron in dark teal and maybe highlight in light gray? Masculine without being ugly?
Goal #4: Less time online. Yes, then no, but now yes!
This week, I set concrete limits and am sticking to them.
Check email 5 times a day, no more. (It beats my 19 times a day from before!)
No Facebook, articles, or blogs until after the boys are in bed- my surfing past bedtime cannot exceed 1 hour.
I can get online with a specific purpose (eg: find a recipe, look up directions, send an email. . .) but not to surf.
I can get online to watch a show on Hulu, IF it does not inhibit my productivity- so, I have to save it for laundry time.
I also allowed myself a little dispensation to post today (with no real reason, I just really wanted to).
I will go back to my regular schedule once posted. So, yes, because I have really stuck with this this week and I have done several things around here that needed done thanks to purpose-driven internet only. Most nights, I didn't even use my hour at the end of the day- I just did other things or went to bed earlier.
NEW GOAL TIME!
Goal #5: Run 5 times a week or more. I'm not designating an amount of time or distance, I'm just making myself get out and get active. I ran yesterday and determined 2 things: I am out of shape. I need to stretch more to keep my ankle from cramping.
I am NOT a runner but need to do something along the lines of fitness. I want to run in a 5K at my church next month, which is pretty ambitious considering I get a little winded jogging about 200 meters down the street. I hope to go today after the sun sets. It is blazing hot out there now!
