Report of September Goals

So ..... How did I do on September goals?????

I marked through completed items.
I commented in red if items were partially completed.
But there was a LOT that didn't happen.
And there was a lot that happened instead .... such as weed pulling, tree trimming, and kitchen purging.

Blogging -

1.  Kiddos With Kindles - Write at least 25 Daily Kindle posts (that allows me to forgive myself if I miss a few).  
2.  Eagle Nest - Write at least 25 Other Posts on Homeschooling, Crafts, and such. 

3.  O 'Scarlett - Write at least 12 book reviews  (I'm not worried about setting a book reading goal - I already have 40 books that I need to write up!)  I think I did 3 or 4 reviews ... computer problems bogged me down the few times I sat down with it.
4.  Wings - my personal scrapbooking blog - Write at least 8 posts and 1 Family News Update.  I think I managed 5 or 6 posts, and one of those also had a tidbit of family news. 
5.  At least once a week, visit other blogs and leave comments, and visit Blog Frog.  Only on the barest of slivers ... maybe a 10% of this one done.

Project School Room - and Household Shuffle

1.  Story gets her room and bathroom finished organized.  She is still working on her area.
2.  Ref moved into a new office space.   A severe delay and jumping through multiple hoops to get the internet downstairs.  Ref is about 1/2 moved.
3.  After the ref has moved and rehooked the internet to downstairs, get all of our computers moved downstairs  
4.  Work some more on Sunshine's room - try to find and localize the items that will be in her room.  We worked on getting her toys found, and into shelves.  Also, we were able to toss out a few toys to the church nursery.
5.  Paint Scholars new Room
6.  Move Scholar into his room and get it organized for him - go through his clothes as we move them.
7.  Get the master bedroom closets and dressers purged and organized

Project Aunt V.

1.  Empty the bunk house -  Sell the baby bed.  And then we promptly refilled the room with furniture that was in Dad's room.  Sunshine says she wants the baby bed - and after falling off the bed last night, maybe it would be a good idea.  It has been converted to a toddler bed.
2.  Redo the Bunk house bathroom and any repairs that need to be done in the room.  Put a door back onto this room.
3.  Empty the Master Bedroom.  Mostly done - just the bed and an oversized wardrobe still to move out.
4.  Help Dad do the repair work on bathrooms and bedrooms whenever he is here. 
5.  Sort pictures and papers so they can be easily stored to go through at a later date.  
6.  Get school stuff organized and ready to start half days of school
7.  Decide between sibs where things can be relocated or stored, and who can best use things.  We still have a lot to go through, but we've gone through lots of stuff.
8.  Get with sibs at least 4 times to go through things that need to leave the house.
9.  Help get stuff ready to be sold or donated.


1.  Keep using up the food in the freezers. Freezers are starting to look empty.  Once we have them empty, we'll do a thorough cleaning and defrost.
2.  Go through freezers again later this month and refill the ones next door.   
3.  Empty the downstairs frig so it can be moved upstairs.
4.  Make meal plans to use up as much odds and ends of stored food as possible.  Sort of did this.


1.  Deep clean as each room/ space is cleared.  
2.  Get the main kitchen under control - easier said than done - the table takes up most of the room.  Must decided on new floorplan for kitchen/dining/living rooms - it's all one BIG room. 
3.  Find a board to put under the foot of my bed - so it doesn't go through the floorboard anymore.   (Somebody tell me why they put particle board in trailer homes - it gets wet, turns to flaky sawdust, and disintegrates!)


1.  Sort the school books into grade levels and get them into a usable arrangement.
2.  Organize the desks and stuff in the room 
3.  Bring Sunshine's kitchen downstairs for play.
4.  Set up an area for the tiny TV for educational videos.   Maybe put this where the frig WAS at downstairs, and kids can sit on the steps to watch?
5.  Find somebody to cut the chalk board in half - get half up in Story's room for her, and the other half up in the school room.
6.  Find someplace to put up the posters and charts in the room - or find them a new home.

Facebook and Email -

Goal is to check no more than 5 times a day.  


1.  Be in bed before Midnight - WITH the lights off. 
2.  Have all of the kids in bed by 10pm - and asleep.
3.  More consistent devotional times.
4.  Loose 10 lbs. Actually lost about 8lbs.
5.  No eating after 8pm.
6.  Walk a mile or so at least 4 times each week.  Goal is to work  up to 2 miles by October 1. We mostly did this ... I did walk 2 miles a few times, also have walked twice a day several times.
7.  Get a schedule in place for chores and routines for the household (minus the Ref).  And get it posted somewhere.

1.  Isolate all of the cards and addresses from the last year or two into a findable location.
2.  Find the Christmas cards and put them with the address pile.
3.  Research ideas for Acts of Service Coupons.
4.  Research ideas for other gifts to give for Christmas.

Find and enter birthday information into the Reminder program that I found to use.
