In Which She Makes (not another!) List

          I love, I mean like, Blimey Cow. I love being
challenged to think new thoughts while laughing my head off; I love comparing
the realities of “You might be a homeschooler if  . . .” with the amazing life-like
videos. Please go and check them out if you already are not one of their
thousands of visitors.

          Needless to say . . . I’m not here to report on Blimey Cow.
I’m actually here to begin a fun process entitled (clearing throat):  Monthly Report
Cards. This fantastic idea came from
Kelli over at She Learns as She Goes. (Perhaps you’ll recognize her from, where else but, Blimey
Cow) J

          Basically, I hope to set a few attainable, helpful goals
for each month and then at the end I will give a report card. For example, if I
make one of my goals to daily quill in my journal and yet only actually pen a
total of 3 days, I might make an F on the report card. Or, perhaps I will make
it a goal to do some sort of crafty thing once a week, and actually do so, I
may make a B+ or an A. (Oh, how the student in me loves A’s.)

          So, with no further ado, my list:


Make Meals Daily.

Yes, I do eat daily. But, more
often than not, I haven’t been the one preparing them as of late. And that isn’t
as it should be. So I resolve, whether I have class that day or not, that I
will somehow, someway prepare something for supper. My men will have


Finish the Semester Strong

We’re almost done and almost
out of steam but I really want to push through and finish this semester well.


Finish two Books from “Currently Reading Shelf”

I wonder if you’re like me:
starting a book, setting it down, beginning two or three more and never
finishing any of them? I believe I have about five books desiring to be
thoroughly read and put away. I am aiming to finish two of them this month.

Help Decorate for Christmas

I shouldn’t be a scrooge just
because I am (for some strange reason) really enjoying the fall decorations
still. J


Memorize Matthew 6-7

Recently, some friends and I
began a Bible Memory club (which has proven helpful and fun by the
way!) Starting in October, we were assigned to memorize Matthew chapter 5. This
past November Matthew chapter 6 was supposed to be mastered . . . alas, it is
now December 1st and I only have a few verses completed. I must make
memorizing a priority this month.

Return Rented Textbooks and Order New Ones

It’s that time of the year!


Actually, Truly, Follow-through with this

If you’ve been visiting here
long you already now I have a habit of getting really excited about something
and then never finishing it. It’s very sad. Therefore, the real test is
whether or not I will follow-through and “grade” my goals come the end of December.


I am really excited to see how
this goes; I love accountability as much as I love working with others so I
feel this may be helpful (as well as fun!). I’d better scoot on to bed
. . . big things are happening tomorrow!

May God richly bless you!
