Goals - Update on last week and this week's goals - Week of May 13th, 2012

My goodness, where does the time go? Last week simply flew by.  When I wrote this list I totally forgot that the kids had their spring concert for school last week too (duh - it was on my calendar!), so I didn't get quite as many things crossed off as I had hoped.  Here's the run down from last week:

Work:

* Continue keeping up my grading (I've actually been able to do this and I'm completely excited about it!)  Done!
* Final exam  Done! 
* Final grades  Done!
* Tidy up my paperwork and notes from the semester
* Finish equipment list for fall  Mostly done - need to meet with our lab tech on this one.
* Turn in the equipment list for fall (You know, so that I actually have my equipment in the fall!)

* Write letter to our Compassion Child
* Pray for my cousin's church - they're in the middle of the call process  Added this to my prayer journal
* See if we can finalize John's summer preaching schedule  (Partly done - we got June finalized, but are still working on July and August)
* Pray for my children and my husband daily (I've fallen off the bandwagon with this and I really need to get back to it!)  Done!  And I added this to my prayer journal - I hadn't before because I thought it was "obvious."

Personal:
* Wash my face every night  Done!
* Get up with John each morning so I have my alone time before my folks get up  Done!

Whew!  No wonder I hit Mother's Day on Sunday completely wiped out!  I got a 2 hour nap in, some Jazzercise practice time, and a very nice dinner out with my family.  Nice and relaxing - the way Mother's Day should be.
