Happy Almost New Year!!! {Linky} *Freebie*

Bah Humbug...that's how I feel about making Resolutions.  Last year I chose OLW {One Little Word} and quite honestly...that didn't sorta worked out for me.  My OLW was "Strength" and I definitely mustered up strength in different moments where I might otherwise not have...and I did replay my word over and over in my mind to gather more strength when I needed it...but the year went on, and I forgot to remind myself to be strong...not that I fell apart or anything, but I didn't quite use my OLW the way I intended to.  I'm still going to pick a new word for this year; but I'm also going to work on a more specifically worded resolution too...

Thanks to Jen, over at The Teacher's Cauldron, for giving me a nudge in this direction...

I'm pretty cliche' when it comes to making resolutions..but I have to be honest with you all. {I really want to be clever here and make a resolution that's never been that makes you go A-HA...that's so cool, wow that Crisscross Applesauce girl is sooooo clever}As much as I hate that this seems to be my resolution every bleepity, bleep, bleep year I have been left with no other choice.  I've fallen off the wagon AGAIN!!!!!!! 

I was a runner for a couple of wasn't something I LOVED.  It never really became a natural part of who I was and what I just *needed* to do to feel right with the world.  {Do I wish I could look at it that way!} but I did feel really good AFTER I got a good run in and the races were a great motivator and so much fun!!!! {Okay...sorta fun}

That's my friend Barb on the left...she's going to start a blog soon!
So my personal resolution is to run more okay just RUN{and eat better, and lose some weight in the process}...

My blogging resolution?

I want to share more of my day-to-day classroom ideas with you.  Sometimes I think I get caught up in sharing only those ideas that I consider more earth-shattering or ones that I think might make you say "WOW, that's the coolest ever".  In waiting for that big idea I can sometimes go weeks days without blogging.  I want to get over that and blog about even the "small" things because I think you can relate to something as simple as "how often do you switch your desks around in your classroom" just as much as you can to a post about schema.

I leave you with this simple freebie...

Happy New Year to you!!!!!!  If you'd like to share your resolutions or your OLW I'm not above copying all ears...I *think* I might have my OLW picked out...but could be easily swayed if you share a better one!!!!


  1. I love your freebie! We used it last year! Good luck with your resolutions!

  2. Oh Holly....I am sooooo off the wagon too! This girl walked 8 miles around Kent lake several times this summer and was running 2 miles every day in the treddy. I got a bad cold in November and started blogging and I haven't worked out since. I feel like a blob. I've got to get back at it in January!! So, we can nudge each other.

  3. I need some work-out support too! I did soooo great in 2011, but haven't done squat this year! We can do it girl! We just need to schedule our next MI meet up at a gym or something!

  4. I used to run a lot, too. I miss it, but my bad back won't allow anymore running. But, I hope you're able to get back to it! Good luck to you and Happy New Year!

    1. Hey, that's two little words! Good resolution tho.

  10. I do the same thing with blogging-I'm super picky about the ideas that I actually put out there. Can't really relate to the running one-since the only time you'd catch me running is if someone was chasing me! :) But I do wish you luck with that! Happy New Year!
