2014 Goals...A LINKY

OK..I admit it...
I am NOT good with New Year's Resolutions...
I usually fall apart around February...
Jessica at First Grade Nest
is having a LINKY!

So here I go!
And there's MORE! ( ????...Fingers Crossed)

I would LOVE to be "comfortable" with Common Core.
 I will try to create creative & innovative lessons that are 
"developmentally appropriate" for my firsties.

I would like to "reread" the multitude of Professional Books
 I already have & implement the lessons
from the "professionals".

I really want to lose some weight. 
( I know...same story new year)
But, as I get older, it gets HARDER!
I mean REALLY harder!
So...this is MY year! 
NO "amounts"...just less...:)

I want to keep a positive outlook.
Sometimes I take things TOO Personally
and then I get down.
Not this year!
ALL is Good!

I have NEVER been to the East Coast 
of the USA in the FALL!
I would love to see the FALL COLORS!
Possibly this FALL!

I like food. 
Not SUPER SPICY, but most!
So I think I would like to try more Vegetarian meals.
Get my tastebuds to enjoy "Greens" again!

I would LOVE to learn how to do
I would love to write with the "pens & ink"..
The swirls, the beautiful form...
Yep! I would LOVE that!

I want to give up worrying about
what everyone else "thinks".
I can only worry about me!
(And my family, and my job, and...)

I love spending time with my family.
I want to spend more time 
with hubby.
He is my rock!
I love having my grandkids around!
I think we need to have a visit!

I would LOVE for my TPT store to reach a
To be able to say "I DID IT!"
Would be incredible!

So that's me in a nutshell!
Now, it's your turn!



Happy Sunday!
Just for you...
