5 For Five - Sept 22

So what is 5 For Five? In the short form, it is 5 goals I want to achieve this week. Next week, I will report on my success (or failure).

Here were the goals from last week:
1. Finish the May newspapers. Nope.
2. Organize my NNPDF papers. Nope. I got some information sent out, but not organized.
3. Finish the rainbow baby posts. Nope.
4. Menu plan to empty the chest freezer to defrost it. Nope.
5. Take 5 things out of Dan's room that don't belong.  Shelby has been enjoying going in there, so I need to move some of the items we don't want to loose out of the room (or at least to higher ground!) Faron had to do some quick thinking when Shelby got into things but there is still a lot to do.

Ok, another bad week.  I really need to refocus.  So what are my goals for this week???
I am repeating most of my SMART goals from last week:

1. Finish those May newspapers. I'm at May 25.
2. Finish the 2 rainbow baby posts.
3. Focus on Dan's room and making it Shelby proof.
4. Put together a plan for what I need to do each day.
5. Figure out the printing issue with my computer.

You are probably wondering what a SMART goal is.  It is a term I "borrowed" from Say Goodbye to Survival Mode by Crystal Paine at Money Saving Mom.  SMART goals are: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound.  Since all these goals are really time-bound (1 week), I just have to get better at meeting the other criteria.

Ok, who is with me?  Let's keep each other on track to a better year!
