I did much better with my goals this week than I did last week. I still have a few things that I hope to accomplish before the weekend is over, but even if they don't get done I'll be satisfied with what I did manage to complete.
1. Make some headway on my yearly goal of turning this blog into a book. I worked on this for quite awhile. Unfortunately, our computer runs very slowly when I have the Blurb program open. It takes a long time to get things uploaded and organized, which is frustrating. I know it will be worth it when I have it completed though, so I'll keep chugging.
2. Put at least one meal per week into the freezer for after the baby's arrival. I made a double recipe of Teriyaki Chicken and a single of Sausage and Peppers. Both recipes can be found here and both are crockpot meals. I just have to thaw, dump in the crockpot, and cook on high for 6 hours. I'm looking forward to tasting them! I also made a batch of chocolate chip cookies and froze the dough balls for after baby's arrival. I may or may not have baked and eaten a few. Unfortunately, there are only four dough balls left in the freezer. Oops. I may have to try this again next week! (FYI, I did not eat all of the cookies myself! It was a joint effort. A batch of cookies doesn't last long when you have 8 people wanting to eat them!)
3. Work on my yearly goal of cleaning and organizing different "zones" in the house. I didn't exactly pick a zone this week, but I did get several random drawers cleaned out and organized.
Joshua, Abigail, and Esther's goal for this month is to practice piano five days a week with me helping them three days. They practiced three days and I helped them two days, so we didn't quite reach the goal. We made some progress, but I hope to do better next week.
One of my mental goals for February was to finish smocking Hannah's dress. I finished the bodice up yesterday, so all I have to do now is smock the sleeves. That will take me about 15 minutes, which leaves most of March to put Esther and Hannah's dresses together and finish up Abigail's. I think I can do it!
