On Purpose


In quite the contrast to last week, I am feeling quite accomplished this week.

By the time I got round to finishing getting the spare room cleaned out, the handsome husband had already done it. I am not sure if he was sick of waiting for me to do it or if he was just trying to pick up some of the slack since I need to adjust to my school & homework schedule. . . Either way, it was greatly appreciated. I know how lucky I am to have him; I love him so much. 

I am through my first week back to college & slightly ahead on my homework & reading, which I intend to make the norm. I had my school bag packed up & organized for my first day of classes & by the next class day (I only attend face-to-face classes two days per week, even though I have a full-time class-load), I was able to eliminate some of the “extras” that I didn't really need to be lugging around with me & I felt that much more efficient.

Lastly, I have been using my Durezol eye drops fairly consistently, but I did also make an appointment with a different local ophthalmologist. The appointment is this coming week & will hopefully be the ophthalmologist I am able to stick with for the long-run. The gal I spoke with did say, however, that if my uveitis is too severe, the ophthalmologist might still refer me to a different ophthalmologist that specializes in my condition, so, again, we will see. . .

The intent this next week is to build on the momentum I have built up last week, so, here is what I plan to accomplish, on purpose this next week:

  1. I will catch up on the housework that I've gotten a touch behind with this past week, (namely, the dishes, the laundry, & the two bathrooms). They aren't looking completely horrible, but they all need some extra attention so they don't get to that point.
  2. I will get all my school work done that is due this coming week & maintain a pace on it that keeps me ahead of schedule by two days to a week, (as I am currently).
  3. There is a blogging challenge that someone in one of my blogging groups has recently shared. I will take a closer look at its parameters & form a plan to participate on some level or another.

Now, it’s YOUR turn! Tell me what you need to be more purposeful about in your life this week. Share in the comments below, send me an email (, or connect on the Calculated Chaos Facebook page. If you’re a blogger, leave a link to your goal-related or purpose-filled post in the comments; I would love to come visit!

Have a purposeful week, y’all!
