October 3in30 Week One

  Goal One: Add one recipe a week to my From Our Kitchen tab   My husband was conveniently making Beef Barley soup this past weekend. It is one of his favorites. Instead of using stew beef this time we used hamburger because we already had some in the freezer, thus making the soup cheaper(…)

After taking the month of September off, I think I am ready to dive back in and tackle some more goals. It seems like so long ago that I had set and worked on goals. I had to go back and review what I had completed and where I wanted to head for the month(…)

August 3in30 Week 4

August 3in30 Week 4

  Goal One: Extension from July – “Tone”   The whole family (even my mother) has hopped on the “rewind” band wagon! I find that if I can keep a cool head and a calm tone, then it is easier to deal with the kids and they are more likely to respond in a similar(…)

August 3in30 Week 3

  Goal One: Extension from July – “Tone”   I am finding myself adjusting my own “tone” more often now. If I start out nice, they tend to respond nicer as well.   Goal Two: If it takes less than 1 minute, do it NOW!   I decided that since we are 3 weeks in(…)

July 3in30 Week 2

. Goal One: Change the “tone” in our home. . The “rewind” is being used less and less now. I find the kids halting their behavior more quickly when I start to raise my hand, or speak in protest of how they are acting. The one time we used the “rewind” the other day, it(…)

July 3in30 Week One

. Goal One: Change the “tone” in our home. . This one is my important one for this month, and possibly the months to come. We are doing reasonably well with this. When one of us (including me) has a not so nice tone, we “rewind” and try again. Now the kids know what is(…)

. I am already starting out July by being behind in posting my goals!  Never fear though as I have known what they are going to be and have been diligently working on them (well, some of them). My first goal, and the biggest one I have chosen to tackle may take more than one(…)
