So it's a new month, which means it's time for new goals! I can't believe it's already February; January seemed to fly by. I did pretty well on my goals last month, too.
My reading goal was to finish two books: "Parenting Isn't for Cowards" and "The New Dare to Discipline," both by James Dobson. I finished both books and just have to type up the rest of my notes.
My craft project was to improve my crochet skills. An amorphous goal, to be sure, but I accomplished it. I would probably consider myself an advanced beginner now.
My Bible study project was the only one I didn't meet, even though it was probably the most important. I had wanted to study the second half of Romans. (I had done the first half last year.) Unfortunately, I didn't do ANY of it. =(
My "other" project goal was to begin preparing for the Festival of Breads, which involves developing original bread recipes. Contest entries are due February 15, so I wanted to make significant headway. I would say I'm more than halfway done preparing, so I'm really happy about that.
My Goals for February
Bible Study Goal: Romans
Craft Goal: Learn to Knit
- Finish Preparing Recipes for Festival of Breads
- Think of Something Nice for DangerBear for Valentine's Day =D
- Catch Up on Household Filing (After February 15)
- Start Tracking Our Finances and Reducing Our Expenses
- "The Five Love Languages of Children"
- "The Hurried Child"
- "To Train Up a Child"
Can you tell I'm on a parenting book kick right now?
I also want to continue getting my act together in terms of time management. There are a LOT of things I need/want to be doing with my days and I can't afford to be lazy. (Unfortunately, I tend to be... um... lazy.)
I've already picked up the knitting needles and am slowly getting the hang of casting on and the knit stitch. Once I finish typing my book notes, I'll pull out my reading goal books and get started. And for Heaven's sake, I need to do my Bible studying!
