Happy New Year - Linky Party

Happy {almost} New Year! I love this time of year. I think it is the fresh start: a brand New Year. I feel the same way in August {minus the butterflies}. A new start to a new year and I'm lovin' it! 

Here are my resolutions for the Linky Party hosted by A Teacher's Treasure. I love the time capsule idea. What a super way to start 2012!! 



1. Run my 2nd mini-marathon. Training is necessary so I better start. I resolve to "hit the gym" and train at least four times a week. That means setting the alarm clock to 4:30am!! I can do this! Mini-marathon is in May! I'm already signed up so HERE WE GO! :) 

2. I resolve to write more hand-written letters. I am LOVING being a blogger but I need to send some handwritten letters to let people know how much they mean to me! Grandma, Grandpa, and Sister Blanche do not have computers (or microwaves). :) 

3. I really want to be a successful blogger. The creative juices start flowing when I read and write posts. I'm in love with Pinterest and need to find the happy balance between successful momma, wife, teacher, blogger, and still have time for me. 


1. I just finished my Masters. (Got the transcripts TODAY!) I resolve to start taking classes towards my Gifted and Talented license. 

2. I resolve to find a creative way to get more Donors Choose projects funded. I have had my last 12 projects expire without funding. 

3. I resolve to create quick assessments for the Common Core reading and math standards. Five questions on a standard with a simple way to track the information for each student. 


  1. Thanks for linking up!!!! We all need to find the balance between work, blogging, Pinterest :), and family! It's tough!!!
    Did I read correctly?!?!?! 4:30am?!?! boy, you are motivated!!! I'm jealous!

    Congrats on finising your masters! What an amazing accomplishment!!!

    Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

  2. I find it difficult to balance all the things in life too. I always feel pulled in a million different directions. I have to make sure I put my priorities up at the front.

    Progress, right?
