Here's my second post for Goal Planning MOnday. How'd I do on my first goals which I set, ahem, over a month ago?
Epic fail. Almost. I did manage to get our new mattresses ordered - this past Saturday, when I realized I wasn't going to be able to report that I accomplished any of my goals. In 4-5 weeks, My Hero and I will be sleeping on a comfy, new mattress. Did I mention that the mattress set we're using is the same one I purchased when I moved out on my own the first time 25 years? It was time for a new mattress.
Clean slate now. No going back to the old goals, even though they're in the back of my mind.
New goals for this week:
1 - avoid big projects at work. I've been working 40+ hours a week since at least mid-January (often more than that - one week was 90 hours!), and I'm supposed to be part-time. I miss my children. I miss my family. I miss my sleep! So the goal this week is to avoid any more big projects and to attempt to communicate that I really want my part-time job back, at least for the foreseeable future.
2 - decide on color/stain for new kitchen cabinets. All that overtime I've worked since January will be paying for new kitchen cabinets and new granite countertops. I can't pick a granite color until we pick cabinets. Maple or cherry? I was sure My Hero would go for Maple, but lo and behold he picked cherry! Now I'm afraid it will make my kitchen look like a cave if I pick the granite that was my favorite, because it's dark. So, hopefully we'll have time this week to go look at cabinet options.
3 - clean the house. You can imagine how it looks with me working so many hours.
4 - accomplish goal #3. I thought cleaning the house deserved two spots on the goal list.
No more goals for this week. I think that's enough!
Hopefully I'll be more successful with this list than I was with the last one!
Thanks to Mama Manuscripts for getting me started on goal setting Mondays!
