Reclaiming Our Home:

Major goal

  • Clean Annalise’s and Jeremiah’s bedrooms, creating spaces of welcome and haven for them, with room for their favorite things and activities.

Minor goals –

  • Clean and reorganize kitchen, so that it supports a home where everyone prepares and serves themselves, and where cleanup is easy enough that we all will choose to participate.

  • At least weekly, work on an area where clutter tends to take over, such as the games cupboard, round table, my office, computer desk, coat cabinet, bathroom dresser, and my personal spaces.

So, there we have it -from the ground up, here are my goals for this first round of my second year of ROW80. I trust that I will know whether these are working or not, and will take appropriate action.

Words, waiting for their trusting release !

A few last points:

  • I plan to work on each major goal every session, and work in the minor goals as my time and focus allow.

  • In my updates, I will only list those goals I actively pursued during that session.

  • I will evaluate my goals, progress and preferences at least twice monthly, and adjust accordingly.
