New Year's Resolutions, Linky Party

A friend of mine described this vacation time as "defrosting."  I'd say that's pretty accurate for me.  After the hectic Christmas rush, with working up to and including the 23rd, then driving 190 miles to be with family for Christmas, followed by the return drive, well, I was beat.  So on Tuesday, my first really free day, I was defrosting.  In other words, doing nothing.  Yeah!

As I defrosted, I thought of my New Year's Resolutions and then found A Teacher's Treasure's Linky Party.  It's time to jump into the fun!

New Year's Resolutions

  • To become a Weight Watchers Lifetime member.  I have about 10 more pounds to go, having already let go of 40.
  • To clean out another of my flower gardens this spring
  • To continue touring the night sky while the leaves are down and I can see it from my home in the woods


  • To differentiate more, always something that is both necessary and beneficial, but not that easy to achieve
  • To finish reading What Really Matters in Spelling by Patricia Cunningham.  I'm a big Cunningham fan.  This book is filled with research based instructional strategies that I can easily incorporate in my classroom.
  • To continue blogging, a great professional development activity!

What are your New Year's Resolutions?  Link up at A Teacher's Treasure and join in the fun!

Happy 2012!

  7. I was wondering where you were ~ ha ha. I haven't "seen" you in awhile and was missing you. Defrosting sounds like a very smart idea. I love your resolutions ~ very meaningful, all of them. I'm a Cunningham fan, too. I think I've read most of her books. Happy New Year, Dee!
