I always have a to do list a mile long and do all of the above....OK, I don't hit the gym but I need to or at least take walks or something! This year my last day of teaching was Friday, December 16th. We go back on Janurary 2, 2012. Yup the Monday after New Years day! Anywho, I planned to work on getting more followers on my blog, more fans on my facebook page, and perhaps to start selling things on TPT. Well peeps, I have changed my mind (Thanks Angela)!!!!!!! Does it really matter how many followers I have? No, what matters is I share and learn from my blog followers. I originally started my blog to share ideas, tips and get input from others so that's what I am sticking to!
What I need to do is HAVE A HOPPY DAY, relax and refresh!!!!!! I have a ton of professional books I want to read.... on top of that list is Awakened: Change Your Mindset to Transform Your Teaching Has anyone read it? On the back it says and I quote "Awakened provides simple steps to help you feel peaceful and energized, no matter what's happening around you..." Hello? Did it say peaceful and engergized? Even with a new state assessment (in Texas its called STAAR)? We shall see!!!! I just purchased it, along with The Cornerstone: Classroom Management That Makes Teaching More Effective, Efficient, and Enjoyable both by Angela Powell Watson. I'll let you know what I think of it and if I'm transformed when I'm done.
I also plan on hanging with my kiddos and the hubster! I love my family so much and why would I put work or blogging before them (Yikes, I think they all have said that before).
Lastly, I plan on taking care of myself. I am joining Weight Watchers (
I vow to put myself and family first! With making me a better me I will be a better mom, wife, teacher, and blogger (not that I'm not Fabulous already - LOL!). Tell me what your plans are during your holiday break.
