5 for Five - Sept 29

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 those May newspapers. I'm at May 25. Nope.
2. Finish the 2 rainbow baby posts. Finished one of them. Watch for it soon.
3. Focus on Dan's room and making it Shelby proof. Nope.
4. Put together a plan for what I need to do each day. Sort of.
5. Figure out the printing issue with my computer. I started it, hubby finished it.

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 really need to get back on track with these.
2. Finish the last rainbow baby post.
3. Focus on Dan's room.
4. Pre-plan my NPD posts for October
5. Start an evening routine with Shelby.

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!
