Goals for the week of Feb. 19th - 25th

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a great, fun-filled weekend!  My weekend was filled with car shopping, thrift stores and relaxation.  My van is on its last leg and has been in the shop a lot in the last few months.  It's 10 years old and things are starting to break and rust.  I want to try and sell the van while it still runs (and doesn't have any other major issues!).  This weekend we were able to narrow our choices down to these three vehicles: the Chevy Uplander, the Chrysler Town and Country, and the Chrysler Pacifica.  I really like the Pacifica but it doesn't have quite as much room as the Town and Country.  Any thoughts?

On another note:
Every Monday I am going to post my menu for the week along with a list of goals I want to accomplish (above and beyond my normal cleaning routine).  This will help keep me accountable and follow through on things I want to get done.

  1. It feels so good to be organized in our goals! Good luck this week, let us know how the recipes are :)

  2. Looks like a good amount of goals! May it be encouraging to check the little things off the list :) I like that you're not overdoing the dinners - I always try too many new things and then burn out ;)

  3. I love how you post all your goals for the week!! now following you :)

  4. Thanks Alanna, I will! Tracie, I love checking things off the list. I totally agree with the dinners. May times, I do the same thing.
