Monday Goal Setting


After a bout with the flu, last week was a wash-out. I did a bit of sewing and some reading and not much else. By Friday night my cough was almost gone and I was feeling better but then I had a bit of a relapse over the weekend and spent most of it laying around. 

I felt bad yesterday because it was Stephen's 25th birthday and I didn't put a whole lot of effort into it.  I made his favorite meal, but bought dessert (which turned out to be "meh"). Dan went bowling with him in the afternoon and we all played a board game he wanted last night but it was a fairly uneventful day. Usually I have a better plan.

I also usually have a plan for Valentine's Day but that hasn't happened yet either. Sigh. For the past 6 years or so, I've done a special dinner for Valentine's Day with our family rather than just Dan and I.  It's always been something we all enjoy and Dan and I always get each other something to celebrate. But dinner is a family affair. So I need to come up with a plan for that.

I have a busy week so I need to get my list written down so I can get started. I'm not sure how much will get accomplished, but I need to at least, try this week!

Goals for the week of February 12-18, 2018:
