2020 Quarterly Goal Update 2

Hard to believe we are more than halfway through this crazy year! Even though it has been the weirdest year I've probably ever experienced, I think it has gone by just as quickly as other years.
At the beginning of 2020, I set some goals for my life and family and planned to blog about the progress on these goals every quarter, to help me stay accountable. A little over halfway through the year, and here's where I'm at!

Health Goals
  • Get a thermography scan   no progress on this. Haven't set up an appointment yet, but now that things are opened back up a bit more, I would like to do this very soon.
  • 150 workouts 82/150 After starting off the year a little rough with some illnesses, I have really been able to catch up and make great progress the last few months! If I continue at this rate, I will more than meet my goal by the end of the year.
Spiritual Goals
  • Memorize 52 bible verses 27/52. I am working on 27 & 28 right now and and it's week 30. So I am a few weeks behind. Technically I have more actual verses memorized than this, because some of what I've memorized has been 2-3 verses together, but I've counted those as one. The thing I'm struggling with most is the references.

  • Study 8-10 complete books of the bible 4 down (Jonah, 1 Peter, Hebrews, Song of Songs), 1 in progress (2 Peter)
Home Goals
  • Have carpets professionally cleaned This was so great! We had the entire house done and I'm so glad we did! I think from here on, we will try to do half the house each year. 
  • put the finishing touches on master bedroom DONE!! (Still need to get some pictures! I need to add the bed skirt, which I've had for months, but haven't put on.)
  • more security measures put in place We've added some things, would like a couple more additions still 
School/knowledge Goals
  • Make a school plan for next year for the boys This has been a funny one. We did have a plan in place for them to go to an alternative kindergarten program next year, but we are rethinking that now. I am 99% sure I know what we are going to do (homeschool) and have ordered their curriculum, but haven't officially withdrawn them yet. So I've made more than one plan for them already this year ;) 
  • Start teaching music at home Done! We used Prodigies for all the kids this spring. Our subscription is currently on hold for summer, and I'm not sure that we'll continue it in the fall. 
  • Find a social studies curriculum that fits our family better for next school year I ordered Notgrass History's Our Star Spangled Banner and I am excited to use it with the girls!

  • Read 30 books 18 read, 5 in progress currently. Reading has not been a problem for me this year!
Personal/Random Goals
  • Find & invest in a good pair of gym shoes Bought a pair of Nike Metcons and loving them!
  • Blog twice a month This has been a fail. I only blogged once in April-June. I think I could definitely still get 24 posts by the end of the year, I just didn't do well with the consistency of twice per month.
  • Get plans in place for 2021 family trip Technically this is done, because our plans are that we are not going now. Thanks, Covid. (I'm sure we'll still go on vacation(s) next year, just not the big one we had planned.)

  • Stay within budget for eating out category every month So far so good! 
  • Finalize our will Finally have made some progress on this!
Family Goals
  • Have girls be able to shower themselves This went so much faster/smoother than expected. They're 100% on their own now and I'm completely out of the picture. Next up, the boys! 
  • Girls clean their room with 0 help 0 progress on this lol. They can do some, but not all. We are having their new dressers delivered tomorrow (several months delayed also thanks to Covid) and this will help a TON. I expect we'll still be able to accomplish this by the end of the year, if not before.
  • Teach the boys all letter names/sounds They know some. We haven't worked on much this summer, but we'll hit it hard again in the fall!
  • Have girls be able to prepare a lunch for everyone Haven't even attempted this yet. Also, can I change a goal? I decided it would be way more beneficial for everyone for them to be able to fix their own breakfast. So come fall, they are going to be responsible for getting their own breakfast every morning. Everyone wakes up at different times, and this just makes more sense. Plus, they will be able to fix all but 1 or 2 things that they like to have, with ease and on their own. So I'm changing the goal to this, to have them doing breakfast on their own this year.
  • 12 date nights that aren't just going to dinner 5/12 (I think). Things were weird for awhile there, but we've made some progress this summer. We did do a weekend away which I'm counting as one of these, but was really should count for several since we did a lot of stuff while we were away!
