I cannot believe that there are really only 2 days left until 2013. I don't even know where this past year went.
Well, we all know that with each new year, comes
new (old) resolutions, shall we call them re-resolutions?
You know, those resolutions that you made last year that didn't really seem to work out? OK, if you don't have this problem pa-leez give me your secret!
This year, I am lucky to be able to set a NEW resolution since I've never been a blogger before during the New Year! Yippee. I decided to link up with 2 bloggers to get my resolutions out there, I figure the more people that see it, the more I'll want to stick with it..
Here are the ladies I'm linking up with
Jen over at The Teachers Cauldron...
And Amanda over at Teaching Maddeness
Run, Run, Run! Or maybe I should just generalize and say "work out." No time, no Energy.. all factors here (What else is new, right?) My Dad and I were planning to run a half marathon together in March and then again in January 2014. Unfortunately, the week of Thanksgiving he was directing traffic at a parade (he is a police officer) and was hit by a car causing a broken leg. He had to have surgery to get a metal rod placed from his knee to his ankle and is out of work for 4 months..which means no half marathon for him. Without the motivation of letting him down if I couldn't run it with him.. it's going to be pretty difficult! The only person I would let down is me. BUT I figure...then I'll have one 13.2 under my belt when we run the Disney half and I just might be able to keep up with him..
Ok, before I make this resolution, I do have to give myself a little bit of credit. First year teacher in a new state, on multiple school-based and county based committees, new blogger...I've taken on quite a bit- and have done an alright job. If anything, I've put the most energy into my classroom and my kiddos which is exactly where my energy should go..which is also the reason I haven't had much energy for anything else.
With that being said, my blogging resolution is to try my best to post 2 times a week. Even if just posting something fun or effective we did. See, I've been trying to create things that go along with my ideas/things we do in my room for freebies/tpt and wasn't posting without it, but I decided I just need to stop that. Ideas and pictures are just as good and I can't stress over not having something to go along with it... I
think am confident I should will be able to stick to this!
Hope you decide to go over and link up with one or both of these ladies! Maybe, just maybe we could help you stick to your resolutions!
Oh yea and before I go... Justin and I are throwing a sale on TPT through January 1st to celebrate the year. Head on over to our store and snag 20% off all of our items! Cheers to a new year!
