Resolution Time

I love the new year.  I love a fresh start, a clean slate.  However, I am realistic about resolutions.  I feel like the pirates on Pirates of the Caribbean, they are really more like guidelines.  I usually also try not to make more than 3 every year.

So, here it is time once again, to think about what you want for yourself in 2014.  I am linking up with
First Grade Nest.  She has a great New Year's resolution linky!

Okay, here we go!

Our district has so many new things going on, that teachers are finding it hard to keep up with everything.  I would love to ease that burden if I could.  I would love to hold a weekly brown bag professional development lunch.  If I say weekly, then I am sure that I could keep up with a monthly one.

I would like to read 4 professional books this year.  I have started a couple, but need to finish them.

In the past two years, I have consistently lost about 20 pounds.  I would like to lose the last 10 pounds this year.  These are going to be the hard ones.  I haven't done anything drastic, just always keeping it in the back of my mind.

Stay more organized.  I hate it when I miss deadlines or miss out on something because of my disorganization.  It drives it me crazy.  I know that staying organized is all about routine, routine, routine.

I really, really want to see Walt Disney World during the holidays.  I have heard it is just magical (even more than usual)!

I have never had sushi.  I always eat the cooked kind.  I believe that is cheating!  I need to go with someone who knows what they are doing.  I am going to have to ease in.

I would love to learn how to do Yoga.  I don't even know if it is something you can learn, or you just have to do, but I'm intrigued!  You may not know this about me, but I don't handle stress well!  I feel like this would be a great way for me stay grounded and handle the everyday stresses better.

I would love to give up my awesome ability to procrastinate!  Anyone have a pill for that?

READ!  I recently have taken time to more reading for pleasure, but that is usually at the cost of something else (laundry).  My goal is to read 52 books this year.  For you math experts that is right:  one a week!

Don't shoot me, but I have never read the book To Kill a Mockingbird or seen the movie It's a Wonderful Life.  I would love to do both this year.

Whew!  That is a lot to take on!  Okay, who is going to have the linky in June (halfway through the year) to see how we are all doing with our resolutions?


  1. I love that laundry is your nemesis - only because it is one of mine! With 6 boys it has always seemed impossible to keep up - even now that we are down to only 4 at home it still seems daunting!

  2. I have never watched It's a Wonderful Life either. The only reason I have read To Kill a Mockingbird is that it was required reading in school. I want to reread it.

  3. Stopping by from the goals linky. I love yoga and it definitely helps me relieve stress and feel better. I need to do it more often in 2014.
