Currently it is Almost 2015

I have been waking up each day thinking this is the day I will blog and going to bed thinking maybe tomorrow. But the day is finally here. I am linking up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade to participate in her Currently linky. This was the very first linky I ever joined up with exactly two years ago. So here we go....

I am a sucker for all countdowns - seriously, I think I would watch a countdown of the top 10 countdown shows. Movie and music countdowns are my absolute favourites. 100 videos is a serious time commitment though : )
I absolutely need to write a to-do list so that I accomplish a few things before heading back to school.
This is my first year teaching Grade 1 and I have a few sweeties still struggling with sounding out words and letter sounds. I am not really expecting that they learned to read over the holidays but I am hoping we make big gains in the new year.
I am needing to focus on the positive every day - it is easy to fall into a negative cycle.
I am not 100% committed to eating healthier (yet - I am getting there) but I am committed to starting with moving more this year.
I may give up coffee again - this is the 1 year anniversary of being cola/soda/Pepsi free but I have not been so successful with the coffee - it is a social/work thing I think.
I would love this to be the year our family starts to travel a little more - even somewhere that involves a passport.
Wishing all of you the very happiest and healthiest of New Years.


  1. Oh my! I gave up soda several years ago, but giving up coffee! I don't think I could do it! I don't use anything but creamer in mine (not the sugary stuff) so I don't feel too bad! Your firsties will get there! It is amazing to see how much progress they make! Good luck and Happy New Year!
    Second Grade is Out of This World!

  2. I think a ton of us are trying to eat healthier. Hopefully we can all stick to it!

  3. A great reminder to focus on the positive! Happy New Year!!!!

  4. First of all, I know exactly the first place your family should come. My house. You can come tomorrow if you want. It MIGHT still be clean. Second, I gave up soda (we call it all Coke down here in the south) this summer and I immediately felt so much better. However, I can not give up coffee. At least not yet. I am NOT a morning person and the coffee gets me one step closer to being polite to people. And, finally, I also need to focus on the positive. It really is a vicious cycle. Let's break it! ;O)

    Happy New Year my friend!! xoxo

  5. I haven't had a soda in several years now, and my "coffee" is 80% milk so no worries there. (Can't order it at a diner because once I get it the way I like it the waitress is back to top it off and mess with my perfection!)

    I love your idea of focusing on the positive...I am the exact opposite and wish I could be a bit more carefree. Thanks for the nudge to try something different.

  6. You are a brave, brave girl to give up both coffee and Pepsi. I had to giggle when I read your "wanting." I want to go back to break and find out that my students DIDN'T forget how to read (or do math facts, or write...) :) Happy new year to you, friend!
