2015 Resolutions?!?!

I don't usually make New Year's resolutions…but thought this was a good linky and I like putting my goals on paper. 
I'm linking up with The Third Wheel to share my goals for 2015. 
HOME: I'm a piler. I like my piles… I should organize them better so they are out of sight… Need storage space. As I sit on the computer…I need to designate NO TECH time for myself.
WORK: I should be more consistent with Guided Reading and Guided Math. For some reason, this year has been rough. I've been using more of the approach of I teach, We try, You do alone… It's been successful, but I need to get those low and high kids in a better way…
HEALTH: As I said in a previous post…Last year this time-I gave up all pop. The past couple of months---it's been back. I drink a ton of water already (and I'm not a coffee drinker)…but need to cut out that pop. We have a treadmill now… My goal is just to use it. I'm not committing to times or miles, but to use it.
BLOG: With all I've got going on right now (Mom of 3 active girls, Grad School, Work, Jamberry, etc), It's been difficult to blog… and when I've blogged, it hasn't been valuable. I'm taking Grad School classes for my Master's in Reading! I've been learning lots! Lots to share! Need to blog about that stuff and the stuff going on in my classroom (Genius Hour, Coding, etc).

SoOoOo…. Link up and share yours!
Enjoy your day! This is my last day of Christmas Vacay….boo.

It's Currently January of 2015!

Well HELLO 2015! Lots of 2014 was rough…Looking forward to a clean slate.
One of my FAVORITE things of 2014 was going to my first Dallas Cowboys' game (at Soldier Field).
Hope we take it all the way!

I'm linking up with Farley and her Currently Linky…
Here's mine!
LISTENING: When I started writing this the kids were playing Deal or No Deal on the Wii. So funny to listen to them get bummed when a big money case is opened or excitement over a little dollar amount. Now they've moved on to watching TV. I have a feeling we will all be moving slowly today.
LOVING: I am seriously loving being home. I have 500,000 things I should be doing, but am just enjoying whatever happens. Back to reality on Monday.
We've enjoyed the zoo, bowling, dinners out, hanging out...

Look at how close the leopard was at the zoo! Usually he's up on top of the rock. He was so pretty up close!

THINKING: I took down one tree right after Christmas so it could get out to the curb for pick up-plus I didn't want the tree to dry out and get needles all over. LOVED having a fresh tree this year…

WANTING: I'd love a bunch of money to update our house. We've been here 12 years and still have the same carpet and furniture in the family room. I desperately need to update… Please donate your cash. HAHA.
NEEDING: I need to get lesson plans done for next week and get two discussion boards done. ick. I'm officially half way through my Reading Master's… I'll be happy when it's OVER…This other Master's will push me to the max lane on the pay scale. Couldn't pass it up…no telling what the next contract will bring. 
YES: I WILL cut back on pop. I gave it up completely last year over Christmas Break… Just the past couple of months I started drinking it again…and it's ohhh so good!
MAYBE: I'll add exercise. We bought a treadmill for the family…I've done a mile. Need to be consistent… But I'm ok if I don't…I have too much going on that diet and exercise is just not a priority at the moment (I'm thankfully completely healthy besides that).
I WISH: I want to go on a big vacay this year with my family. Hoping to make it happen…but for now it's a wish.
Happy New Year! I hope 2015 is good to you!
