Mid-month goal check
Thu, 04-15-2010 - 8:12am

How's everyone doing on their April goals?

I'm not doing too bad, considering I haven't been home much. I've been helping out my mom who is having some health issues plus she is the primary caregiver for my 102yo grandmother. Anyway, here's my progress.............

1. Keep trying to reduce the amount spent on household stuff. Maybe I need a *Walgreens/Target/Walmart* ban??? I've spent less than $25 so far.

2. Declutter. This month I'd like to work on cleaning out our shed, if the weather cooperates. File/trash 2 stacks of papers on the floor of computer room. Go through my clothes and donate stuff I haven't worn for awhile. Work on organizing my exercise resources.

Get at least one more full time client. - I have had 3 interviews so far, and two are planning on starting with me next month.....But I know better than to count my chicken's before they hatch. But I am very hopeful.

Set up medical insurance for my family.

1. Get our garden area dug up. We had a very small garden last year and are expanding this year. I also need to get my plants started indoors. I started the plants indoors but haven't worked on the garden area yet :(

2. Work out on the Wii and burn 2520 calories (which is based on my average of 4.2 calories per minute for 20 minutes each day). I've done 995 - not too good but not awful.

3. Go for either a walk or bike ride with the family 6 out of 7 days per week (assuming the weather is cooperative). I'm averaging 30 mins per day this month so not too bad. Some days (3 so far this month)

1. Pay off 4 bills. Not done yet....

2. Make dental appointments for Johnathon and James. James went to dentist twice so far, he is having a crown put on a broken tooth. That will be finished April 30th, and is costing us $260.

3. Enjoy my Spring Break and destress for a week. Enjoyed my spring break...it was nice to be home with my family.

4. Register for classes at the community college. Done, paid most of the tution bill already, waiting on financial aid for the rest, if not we will pay it.

5. Set aside $20 a week from the household budget in cash. Not happening yet...need to get in gear on this one.
