Goals Update 3/26

(Those sunglasses crack me up.)

Hey Everybody!

This week didn’t quite turn out the way I thought it would.

We were scheduled to meet with a financial counselor on Thursday but couldn’t find a babysitter for the time we needed.  That didn’t happen.  I thought I was going to spend all week preparing clothes for a consignment sale this past weekend.  I missed the registration date.  That didn’t happen.  These were two huge, potentially time consuming events.

I used the time I was going to spend on consignment sale preparation, cleaning out my attic.  There are just two more bins up there that I have to go through.  I also went through the Mt. Clutter pile in my living room and divided things up into “donate”, “consign” and “garage sale” piles.  I put another huge load of trash out at the curb for garbage collection.  All I have left to get rid of are some beat up lawn chairs and a drop side crib.  Can you imagine how many drop side cribs are crowding the landfills now that they have been banned?

Anyway, we definitely have a babysitter for an appointment with the counselor this week.  And I will need to get the rest of the clothes out of the bins in the attic by Wednesday to drop them off at the consignment store.

I am thrilled because my husband completed the plans for two nights away to celebrate our anniversary next week.  Woohoo!  My parents will be kindly driving up from FL to take care of the kids and spend some time altogether.  I have the Mandisa concert next Sunday to  start off that whole week.  It should make for a good week of restorative fun.

Here are the goals from last week and following are the goals for next week.
