Saturday 10/26/13 new goals, posting meditating, calendars, driving test and Day 299/ 365…

I have made some new goals. One of them is to post every day. This one has not been going very well. I have been sick and haven’t made it onto the computer this week. My plan is to write during the week on my Nook and add the posts in on the weekends, to be released each day. Then if we have a lot going on, this goal can still be accomplished.

Another goal is to start to meditate. I have a Yoga VHS that has meditation on it so I…or we if the kids want to join in…can learn from this tape.

I also have a few family goals. One of the problems that I have is when a goal is made, I either loose the list of goals, or the goal gets lost on the family calendar and it never gets completed. We were at the store the other day and got calendars for 2014. We now have a second one for me that can be used for separate goals. We took the 2013 calendar and made a copy of the October, November and December pages.  Our main calendar has things like the kids school holidays and club events…like parades and dances. Years ago we had separate calendars for these things, school and goals, and it didn’t work. I don’t remember why. We went to having everything on one calendar and that didn’t work. We are now back to separate calendars. As long as we keep moving forward, that is what really matters.

Another goal is to get a copy of the driving rules of the road. My kids don’t have licenses yet. We are going to try reading a small section of the book at dinner after we read our devotional. It should only take a few minutes and help the kids feel more comfortable with the test.

These are a few of my current goals.

Wednesday 9/4/13 Parade – day 247/365…

  We went to Beth’s parade this morning. The sky was gray. It rained sort of hard for about ten minutes before the parade started. We saw Sponge Bob at the parade and a frog statue outside of the fire station. Her group has go cart sized cars. They start out as gas powered and the school changes them to alternative energy cars. They have a solar powered car an electric car and some others. I think they all run on gas too. The kids drive the cars in the parade. It gives the kids a chance to show others the work that they have been doing. Since the cars are used, they sometimes need repaired. This gives the kids a lot of chances to see how they are put together. Beth’s first year there she did a lot of sanding. She didn’t know anything about cars or about the machines. Last year she did more work with the machines. She din’t come home as dirty last year. I didn’t realize that sanding was such a dirty job. She does have a greater understanding about how cars are put together, but she doesn’t seem to be taken with cars. The teachers at the school says that by the end of the kids junior year the kids have a pretty good understanding of what they would like to go into for a career.
