Please Note: To all My "WeHaveLupus" Mini Goal Friends Rob our Moderator has requested on Saturday Afternoon for Us to "reuse" the same Thread each day to Post our Mini Goal's.

Iam Having "GREAT" Success with simular Mini Goal Thread's On 3 other Sites/Forums that Iam a Member of, 2 for Low Carb Weight Loss & 1 for Diabetes.

Thanks to all that have joined in so far & Welcome to all that have joined in today on our 2nd day !!!

My goal today is to take a walk outside. The sun is out and it is in the 60's. I have been cooped up for a week and need to start getting my strength back.

I just came back from my walk and it was so nice to be outside. Anything after this will be a bonus!

Once again, my day is almost done - it's 4 pm here. I've done a good job on my goal for today. I've cleaned the wooden furniture, de-cluttered and hung a few more family pictures on the wall - all without hurting my back. I'm going to ask Jeff to sweep the courtyard and Swiffer the floors for me. I was tempted to do it, but decided that it would not be good for my back.
Goal for this evening: Make some grilled sandwiches for dinner and then settle in with some spiked eggnog to watch sci-fi. Tonight it's Stargate Universe, Sanctuary and Numb3rs. We also need to watch last night's Fast Forward, since we recorded it so Jeff could study.
Ahhh, a restful evening!

Hi Cindi and others,
I've had another busy day, and I've accomplished several goals. I ran some errands and picked up a few more things that I need for our dinner party tomorrow.
I got Jeff to clean the floors for me (I was a good girl-careful of my back) and he helped me to hang a couple more things.
I'm now doing laundry, then we're going out to eat some seafood.
Goal still left for this evening: bake an apple pie and a pumpkin cheesecake for tomorrow.
Goals for tomorrow: cook a nice dinner and then PARTY!

OK..I've missed the first four days :grumpy:
Today is Monday...so here are my mini goals for today

1) try to get in at least 30 minutes of some form of exercise
2) to vacuum seal all of my summer clothes and un-seal my winter clothes and get them hung up(such an arduous and aggravating chore)
3) Make sure to eat breakfast!

That's about all that I can try to accomplish in one day!!

I have two goals,


Today, is change the catbox day. Blah!

Then, I have to go over to the Maritime Museum to discuss a new project they want me to work on. Not so Blah.

Those two fairly simple tasks will expend pretty much all of my energy for the day. It's hard to believe I used to work 12 hour days on just a few hours sleep. Now, 2 to 3 hours of any simple activity is all I can muster.

My "WHL" Mini Goal's for today are to go Grocery Shopping with my BF for the item's missing that we will need for Thankgiving's Dinner !!!

We will be Celebrating on Wednesday as he will be working on Thursday. My BF is in management at our local Walmart which will be open 24 hour's on Thanksgiving into "Black Friday" in order to avoid any early morning crowd problems !!!

My 25y/o Son will be joining us for Dinner after work & that way he will be able to spend Thursday with his Dad my Exhusband of 22yrs !!!

After I have lunch & a short rest from shopping Iam going to get my pumpkin & apple pie's baked !!!

Iam sure that will be all that I will manage to get done for today, so it will be leftovers for Dinner !!!

Have a GREAT Day Whatever Your Plan's & Mini Goal's May Be !!!

Hi everyone,
I totally missed yesterday because I was so busy cooking and then entertaining Jeff's friend and his wife. We had so much fun, and now we've actually had guests in our new home.
Today's goals:
Get an oil change for the Prius (done)
Match the yarn color so that I can finish the new baby's blanket (done)
Empty the dishwasher from the party last night
REST, since I had my MTX injection last night
Work on that blanket while I'm resting
So, I'm having a pretty good day, despite the injection last night.

My goal for today w a s, shopping for Thanksgiving dinner ( just for my husband and myself). But, my boss begged me yesterday, to come in for a eight hour shift 10 am- 6 pm today, on my day off and I said yes ( what was I thinking?). Tomorrow I work from 6 am- 2 pm and after that I have to go shopping, my goal is to get through today and tomorrow and still have some strength left to enjoy Thanksgiving. But I will be off on thursday and friday.

My goal for today is to bake 4 pies.
I'm cooking for a big Thanksgiving celebration on Thursday. The NPS Spouses' Club sponsors a big dinner in the military community center. They invite the single guys at NPS, the international students and families who are "stuck" in the Navy Lodge over the holiday.
Since Jeff and I felt very strange about being alone for Thanksgiving, we were very happy to volunteer some food and our time.
Today, I'm making the easy pies - two mincemeat and two pumpkins.
Tomorrow, I'll do the hard ones - two apple pies. (I hate peeling and slicing!)
I'm also making two pans of dressing and loaning my two huge punch bowls and big crock pot.
It should be a fun day! My two sons-in-law who always fight over my home-made apple pies are gonna miss the old gal this year!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone,
Marla

We had a fun Thanksgiving with a large group of families at the NPS military community center. Like Cindi, I'm resting up today while the super-student works on his computer projects.
My simple goals for today are:
Do the laundry
Buy cat food (This takes a trip to the vet's office for special food - Casper has kidney problems)
Make a nice big pot of chili
Work on that baby blanket!
Have a restful Thanksgiving weekend, everyone,

My goal today was to get the cat food, since the vet was closed yesterday.
I was trying to stay out of Jeff's way, since he's working on a computer project. After I left the vet's, I turned in the direction of Carmel, so I could check out a shopping area that I had heard of. I wasn't too impressed with the shopping area, but when I was headed out I saw a sign that said "Carmel Valley Village - 11 mi." Thinking that it might have interesting shops, I turned that way. The drive was gorgeous! The fall colors in the mountains were just outstanding today. The village was nothing but lodges and bed & breakfasts, but the drive through all of the farms and vineyards was worth it.
Plan for the rest of the day:
Work on baby blanket, make Mexican Lasagna and keep out of super student's way.
Hugs,
Marla

My mini goal for the day was to photocopy a long medical application that is several pages long and get it in the mail, cash a check, and go shopping for bedsheets and other things that I need in my new place. Also, I hope to get a large ham cooked, but don't think at this point I will get it done. Also, I wrote several E-Mails today that needed to be written, including E-Mailing my daughters husband's mother for the first time. I was putting this off for a long time because I was having trouble coming up with the right words and knowing what to say as I have not communicated with her since my daughter's wedding which was over a year ago.

12-22-2009, 06:50 AM
I hope you get those 2 hours (or more!), saysusie.

I don't think my to-do list qualifies as a mini goal, but I'm hoping to do it anyway...

Today I need to:

-go to the vet to pick up more meds for Brandi (my Chihuahua)
-buy Christmas gifts for Brandi and my parents' dogs at Pet Supplies Plus
- go to the mall - need to buy just a few more gifts
-go to the dollar store for a few more stocking stuffers for my parents
-buy Pepsi One - I'm out and I think I'm in withdrawl, lol!
-stop by the church and make a few wellness calls to congregants
-write out and mail a few cards to congregants
-wrap all my gifts
-put up Christmas lights in the hallway (not going to even try to decorate the REST of the house until tomorrow)
-prepare notes for a very challenging conversation I need to have with my minister tomorrow afternoon

I SO don't have time for lupus today!!!!! At least I was able to get a good 8 hours of sleep last night and I feel pretty well rested right now. Hope it continues!!
