Happy 2016 my Fabulous Froggy Friends!


Hi Friends!

Happy New Year!  I wish everyone has a new year full of love, laughs, and good health!  I didn't do much to bring in the new year.  My husband (a sheriff deputy) worked, my son worked (at Six Flags Fiesta Texas) but came home around 11:00, and my daughter (who lives on her own) was sick.  So it was just me and the dogs.  The noise of the fireworks around us were overwhelming loud and it made the dogs pretty nervous so they just cuddle with me pretty much the whole night.

I am not making resolutions this year.... I never keep them anyway!  However, I am going to try to improve my awesome life by finding balance.  I give so much of myself to work that sometimes I don't have time to work on other things important in my life.  I want to do what makes me happy (which includes work) but find balance in doing so.


I'm participating in my Fabulous friend Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade's links party.




LISTENING:
I am just chillaxin on this chilly day and watching Ellen.  I love this show and I am able to watch it while on break.  I normally DVR it but never find the time to watch it on DVR so I'm enjoying it now.


LOVING:
I am not a typical teacher who is a "reader".  I want to be but it takes a lot for me to get hooked in to a good book.  Well my friends, I started a book that I just cannot put down.  I do love most of Mitch Albom's work but this one literally made me cry yesterday! It's called  The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto.  Click on the pic of the book or the link and check it out!






THINKING:
My Winter break is about over.  I go back to work on Monday.  I miss my students a lot but I wish I had another week or two to hang out with my family (including my dogs).

WANTING:
I want 2016 to be MY year!  I want want to stick to my goals and I don't want to sweat the small stuff.

NEEDING:
Oh boy do I NEED to get better at time management.  I stink at it.... at work, at home, in every aspect of my life.  I waste so much time and want need to learn to be more efficient.  Perhaps not being on social media 24/7 would help!

My ONE LITTLE WORD is: Balance
I need to find a good balance between work, family, my blog, my home, and just doing what makes me happy.  I think that goes back to my time management issues but we'll see how it goes this year.  I am really going to work on being more balanced.


Stay fabulous my friends,

  1. Hello! Boy, you and I could be the same person! I will have to check that book out soon. I love to read. I to could use MUCH balance in my life between church, school, family, kids' sports, etc. It gets to be a lot, doesn't it? I hope that this year is a wonderful one for you and yours. Take care and enjoy the time you have left on your break!

    Blessings,

  2. Hi Lorraine! I'm with you on BALANCE! Trying to figure how to balance everything out is difficult for as well. I have the time management part down, but balancing that time is difficult for me, only because I like to give everything I do 100% of my time. Hope we can do this, this upcoming year! Happy New Year!
