5 for Five

Since this is my first week linking up for 5 for Five ... I don't have anything to recount from last week. But hopefully, starting something new will allow me to be held accountable for my mini-goals.


This week's goals:

1. Keep the kid's playroom cleaned up every evening: This is NO easy task. Those two little pups know how to haul out every toy they can get their little hands on, and have no inclinations of ever putting anything away. Granted, some of that is their age. But still, someone needs to clean it up ... maybe by doing it every evening, it will become a lot less tedious.

2. Take the kids outside to play three times: The weather is supposed to be quite cool this week -- back down into the 40's most days, with one day having highs in the 30's ... but kids dont care as long as they are dressed warmly.

3. Eat all of our lunches at home: Lunch is the one meal that we can never seem to eat at home all the time. It just is such a convenience to grab something, healthy or not, while we are out running errands. Not only is it a drain on the bank account, but it gets old after awhile. You would think that would be enough to stop it from happening ... but it always finds a way back into our routine.

4. Make it to the post office and mail off the packages that need to go: Ive been a part of a mommy swap on my BBC board for L's birth month, and January is quickly disappearing. I need to get that package out before its too late.

5. Make my craft for Marine Parent's Five Dollar Craft Swap: Ive really been getting into doing some of my Pinterest craft projects lately, and am looking forward to the one I have planned for the swap. Now that I have my design all planned out, I need to get it done, so I can get that mailed out before the deadline, as well!!

What are your goals for this week?! And remember to head over and link up with Jessica and Jenn!
