Goal Progress - February

Here are my goals for 2011
1. Read through the Bible. I plan to do this by starting every day with Bible reading and prayer.
2. Spend more time with Robb without the kids. Our lives get so wrapped up in everything the children are involved in that so often our relationship takes a backseat. I don't want that to be the case this year.
3. Set aside at least one hour for each child individually during each week, outside of school time, to do something with that child.
4. Be slower to anger with my family.
5. Finish Ballerina's stocking by the end of February and begin Little Red's stocking.
6. Finish painting and decorating the 2 girls' rooms.
7. Lose 15 pounds.
8. Read at least one book a month, outside of books we read during school time.
9. Organize the printed pictures so that I can begin to scrapbook again.

So my priorities for February were:
1. Continue reading through the Bible by starting every day in Bible reading and prayer. I did well here. I am partway through Numbers and Mark.

2. Go on a date with Robb. We had a lunch date on Valentine's Day.

3. Plan for one hour per week with each child doing something non-school related. I have done better with this, but I'm still not where I would like to be. Realistically, this should be something planned and not just thrown in during the day, which is what I did this past month.

4. Get through each day without snapping at my children because I have lost my patience. Here, I am a work in progress. I am getting better about this, but I can't say that I got through each of the past 28 days without snapping at the children. 

5. Finish Ballerina's stocking. Order Little Red's stocking pattern. I have about 20 more French knots to do on Ballerina's stocking (boy, do I hate how tedious those are!). I ordered Little Red's stocking, and it is here ready for me to begin.

6. Hang pictures in the one girls' room. Pick out paint colors for the other girls' room. Nope and sort of. I did not hang the pictures. The girls did pick out a paint color for their room, but I haven't purchased paint yet. 

7. Lose 2 lbs. YES!!! I actually lost 2.6, bringing me to a grand total of 4 lbs lost so far this year.

8. Read a non-school book. Sadly, no, I did not do this. I did start reading Knitting for Dummies, but I didn't finish it.

9. Organize the pictures that have already been printed. Pre-plan 5 layouts. Nope, didn't do this.
My priorities for March:
1. Continue reading through the Bible by starting every day in Bible reading and prayer.
2. Go on at least one date with Robb.
3. Set aside a planned time each day to spend with at least one child, so that each child gets some one-on-one time with me each week.
4. Get through each day without snapping at my children because I have lost my patience.
5. Finish the French knots on Ballerina's stocking. Begin Little Red's stocking.
6. Hang the pictures in one of the girls' rooms. Purchase paint for the other girls' room.
7. Lose 2 lbs.
8. Read a non-school book.
9. Organize the printed pictures. Pre-plan 5 layouts to scrap.
