Weary of Weekly Goals

About a month ago I joined up with MSM who each week sets 10 goals for herself.  I admire this and thought that having goals was a great goal to have so I started following her and chose to have Weekly Goal Wednesdays.  Well I am not very good at achieving goals evidently.  I do okay with my daily goals because all they are is my everyday routine that I carried forward but the weekly goals...Sheesh life always gets in the way.  But I am NOT going to give up.  My new goal is to keep making goals!!

Each Morning

Time with my Lord

Make Bed


Swish and Swipe
This is a concept that I kept from a few years ago when I was introduced to Fly Lady.  Fly Lady is a website to assist you with your clutter and house cleaning issues.  I don't really have too many house cleaning issues and my clutter issues are not clutter you can see but rather clutter in storage areas, attics, garage, etc.  Which I am currently working to amend.  I even completed my basement storage area. with help from Organizing Junkie. But one of the things I retained from Fly Lady is that each day after I floss/brush/shower I swish and swipe.  I keep a canister of Clorox Wipes under my sink and swipe the sink each morning when I am done and wipe down any of those disgusting splatters on the commode.

  1. I am horrible at making goals and then doing them. Maybe I need to try that in the new year. I am not getting a dang thing done around this house and the clutter is getting to me.
