30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 13

Day 13 - Goals

Wow, Katie at Katie's Journey had no idea what she was getting into when she wanted me to list goals :-)  I'm a goal person - my whole life is based on goals!

First, you can check out my 40 goals by the time I'm 40 over here.  There is a post that lists all the goals, plus a few updates.  I also track the completely goals on the side bar of my blog. 

Here are some other goals I'm working on also:
1. Do the final decluttering in my house which is my basement and garage.
I started this goal in January and am so close to being done!!2. Getting current on Scrapbooking.
This is also on my 40 list - but it is at the forefront of my goals.  I want to be able to enjoy pictures of my kids now, now 10 years from now.
3. Read.  Set a Plan and read some good books
In Aug. I picked 5 books to read by Christmas.  I'm reading # 4 right now.  I have put together a list of books to read Jan-March to challenge myself more.
4. To fill the hole in my "Bucket" (my bucket is money)
I'm a spender so money falls through the hole in my bucket without me knowing it. I'm working very hard through lots of prayer and telling my husband to keep me accountable to fill that Hole so nothing falls out!
5. Spend as much time with my kids as possible.
I'm a stay at home mom with a purpose - to make memories with my kids, not keep a clean house!  I sometimes forget this but am working on it.  I am planning activities for all of us to do each day so that we get that time together.

I think that's enough to keep me busy :-)  I love that feeling of accomplishment when I finish a goal but I also know that not all goals get completed.  I just keep working on it!
