First 5 Goals: I am too busy mopping the floor to turn off the faucet

How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I'm committed to? ~Anthony Robbins

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. ~Henry Ford

Goals are dreams with deadlines. ~Diana Scharf Hunt

1. Declutter House
This has been a main goal for me for awhile. "Less chaos and confusion = more time and money for the things that really matter such as....spirituality, emotional well-being, physical health and loving relationships." I am really good about reading "How To Declutter" from various sites, but have yet to put into practice. So, I better get off my little toosh and DE-clutterrr! Remove, sort and purge!!!

2. Read More
UPDATE: Yeah, I have started to read again. And it is WONDERFUL. You should try it, really! I am going to the library today to get some books on my list to read. I will write later about some of the books I am reading, etc.
I just put a list of books I want to read on the side of my blog. Though, I have not watched too much TV lately (good thing), I have on the other-hand have been spending too much time on the computer (not a good thing). So, I have decided to shut down the laptop for a little while and put forth some written words unto my face.

3. Decorate Girls Room
UPDATE: I bought a border for the girl's room and picked out paint chips to decide what paint color to get. I got the box out of "goodies" we have collected over the years to decorate the room to sort through. I am hoping to paint sometime next weekend. (July 15)
I have wanted to do this for awhile. I need to finish Goal #1 first before getting myself boiled over with paint and fabric. But, I can let you know that my idea for decorating the room is still "The Secret Garden". This has been the theme since/before Sophia was born in 2002. I have been collecting and dreaming of it all for many years. Hopefully, we can get it done before baby # 3 comes.

4. Create a more effective office space
UPDATE: I have started removing, sorting, and purging items in our office. Woo hoo! I am almost done. I will show you pics when I am all done with it. I bought an desktop organizer at Target to help me with organizing my stuff!
UPDATE II: (July 15) I put the desktop organizer together and my office space is coming together.....sooon! I think I may wait awhile to completely "decorate" it. Right now I am just making it functional.
My Darling Hubby and I currently sharing an office. My side of the office is however....Disasterous! (If that were a word). Hubby is doing a pretty good job at keeping his side tidy. Me, well...I could use a little help. Okay...ALOT of help. But, I am eager to do it. Go here to see another fellow bloggers way of keeping her office organized. I think I may use a few of her tips!

5. Set-up Homeschool "Classroom" and prep for September
UPDATE: We bought the table/desk for the girls. The girls and I went out and bought the paint , supplies and some stencils. We discussed how we wanted to paint and decorate it! It should look really cute!
UPDATE II: I have started painting the desk and chairs. I still need to stencil them. The school area is almost finished. It is really starting look like a little classroom area. Sophia is wanting to start school tomorrow! Ha ha! I am not quite ready yet.
Sophia is going to be starting Kindergarten this coming school year and we have planned to homeschool. Papa is planning on picking up a desk (small table & chairs) at IKEA for me. I am going to paint it white and stencil in the girls names in the chairs. I just need to set up where we will homeschool with the desk, bookshelf of supplies, etc.
I already have my curriculum of which I really like! All that I need to do with that is get all the supplies ready to go. Woo hoo!
