Happy 2020! Around this time most people are settling goals to better their lives. I’ve got a couple for myself and then homeschool goals for the year. I’ll start off with my personal goals. The first thing I’d like to do is keep up with house chores. Sometimes I double up chores on one day instead of doing them on the day I was supposed, too. So this year I want to get the chores done on the day I set them for. Since our home is small I have enough rooms to clean one to two rooms a day. I do laundry 4 times a week and the trash goes out 2 days a week. I have a planner I write down the chores I want to do each day, things we’re going to, meals for the week and a list of the week. The planner stickers I use are from PinkiesPalace but now I use the ones from Happy Cutie Studio.
My next goal is try and get back to pre-pregnancy weight. I’ve tried this every year but the last 10 pounds is very hard to lose. I have a Fitbit now so hopefully that will help me. The first day I did my daily routine and saw my stats then set goals that were a bit above my normal day to challenge myself. I try to get at least 30 minutes of strenuous activity a day. In addition to my Fitbit, I added yearly tracking charts to my planner.
Since I homeschool year round starting in January it’s easy to add educational goals for the year. We will be using Timberdoodle Kindergarten Elite Kit this year. When I get the curriculum and print out the year’s schedule from Timberdoodle’s online scheduler I go through it and write down the main lessons for each item everyday. Then I make a list of things I feel she should learn and retain from the curriculum. I do take into account that our daughter is young and doing academic things that are meant for children a bit older than her.
