Day 13: Goals of Balance

Goals, goals, goals.  I'm not very good at setting concrete goals.  I'm better with dreams and wishes.  However, I've been thinking, and I've come up with a short list of results I'd like to see at the end of my 31 Days.

  1. The Kids: I don't want to leave their school work and piano practice 'til the last minute each day.  Luckily, we're getting into a bit of a weekday routine.  Spelling and reading before supper, after a short period of playtime to unwind, and my husband does piano with our daughter right after supper while I'm doing the dishes.  I also want to be able to take the time to go look at whatever cute thing they're doing when they call, and laugh and sing and read with them more.
  2. The Husband: I'm not sure what this goal should look like, but I know it's important to include my husband and our marriage in my balanced life.  And I can't plan for him, like saying I'd like us to talk more, or do more things, etc.  So I'll just say that I'd like to listen more.  And I'd like to be more gentle in my speech and my actions.
  3. The House: I'd like to keep up with the basic housekeeping daily, plus do one load of laundry per weekday.  Anything else will have to wait for Mondays (cleaning) or Fridays (projects).
  4. Editing: I need to keep on schedule.  If I don't, I will have a very stressful November.  My deadline is November 30th!
  5. Writing: Well, my only writing goal for this month is to keep up with the posts.  Editing is taking the #1 work priority right now.
I'm probably going to have to add this to my list of posts to read daily.  I need lots of reminders.
