Happy New Year!
I am starting this new year off with a few linky parties and a POST! I know, I know, I have slacked on the blogging this school year and I keep saying that I will do better, but I mean it this time! This winter break has given me some time to remember that I need to give myself time to do things that make me feel good and being part of the blogging community is something I really love. So, that being said, I am back for good! haha :)
I am linking up with Sunny Days in Second Grade for her One Little Word Linky for the new year. I love her picture she made for it! Isn't it cute?
My word for 2014 is breathe. Those that have followed my blog, know that I have gone through a lot of changes this school year. I took a new job, on a new grade level, in a new state and have been pretty stressed out. I have NOT given myself enough ME time. I have devoted most of my waking hours to school. So, that being said, my goal for this year is to stop and take time to breathe. I will not kill myself to get it all done, because when I think it is all done, there will just me more to do! I will take the time to do other things that make me happy as well!
I am also linking up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the January Currently!
Listening: I am listening to the Rose Bowl. We had a lazy day watching some football and relaxing. I can remember watching football on New Years Day as a kid and it just seems like something we have always done!
Loving: I am loving WINTER BREAK!!! (I am shouting) I SOOO needed this break. I have not had a full two week break for Christmas in years. Most years that I have taught, we went back January 2nd or 3rd, so I am LOVING that I still have four more days off.
Thinking: I have really struggled with getting back into working out this school year and I have surprisingly done very well over break. I started feeling a little guilty that I didn't go today. Oh well...I will go tomorrow!
Wanting: I am wanting to go to the movies. We usually go to the movies a bunch over the holidays and this year we just didn't. I am feeling a need for a movie before going to back to school. Maybe tomorrow!
Needing: I need to work on my TpT to do list! I have four projects that have been started and have yet to finish. I need to get at least one finished before break ends.
Memory and/or tradition: Family! I just enjoyed getting to see so many people over the holidays. :)
Hoping everyone has a Happy New Year and that 2014 is a great year!
