A blog about the grief after losing a child to Niemann Pick, Type C, a rare disease, and how I'm moving forward with my life.

5 For Five - Nov 3

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. Read the newspapers through June 20. Done!
2. Finish clearing out the expired coupons. Nope.
3. Push my Niemann Pick fundraiser and the custom designed nail wrap (see the post for a picture of the wrap). I had 1 purchase plus my own. 
4. Finish the phone cleanup. Almost done!
5. Figure out what we are doing for Halloween. (I made this one easy since it is Friday!) We carved pumpkins on Thursday but didn't do anything for Halloween night.

A couple of projects done.  So what are my goals for this week???
So here are my SMART goals for this week:
1. Read the newspapers through June 30.
2. Publicize my Jamberry mystery hostess party
3. Finish the phone cleanout.
4. Spend 30 minutes organizing my desk at home.
5. Put the Halloween decorations away.

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!
