"New Year's" Resolution

I love the idea of setting a New Year's resolution in January and usually have several different ones that I attempt to keep...  A new year, a fresh slate, a new beginning........   The same happens around the end of July and first of August when I start thinking of my new SCHOOL year!   A new year, a fresh slate, a new beginning......  So, I couldn't resist taking part in Clutter-Free Classroom's New Year Resolution Linky Party!!!

I have several different resolutions for this coming year... and I hope and pray that I can keep them.

First of all, I want to SMILE more....  Sometimes, I let the smallest things get to me - I'm going to try to let those things go....  ;) 

Second, (I've never been very good at picking just ONE resolution)  I want to be MORE ORGANIZED!!!!!!!!!  Everyone THINKS I'm organized at school but my files are a MESS!!! I don't have a system besides starting a new system at the start of every year so now I have 7 years of randomness!!!!  That is one of my tiny goals for this week ~ to get a solid system in place....  ;) 

And last, I want to do a better job of encouraging better handwriting... Many times, I'm not sure if poor handwriting is from maturity or from laziness..........  I need all the help on this as I can get.... If you have the chance, please link up to my post from yesterday, Handwriting Tips, and let me know your best tips!!!!


  1. Good luck on your resolutions. No matter how organized we are it seems we all want to be MORE organized. ;)

  2. On my way to school now to work on that particular resolution.... hehehe.... The last time I went to work in my room, I sat for about an hour and just stared..... hahaha.... Changing rooms again this year - 10th move in 8 years.... Which is why I feel like everything is so scattered! Thanks Sherrie!!!

  3. I found your blog through the linky party. I'm now a follower!

    I just saw your comment on CF classroom about making a barn like mine. I would love to see it! I am going back tomorrow and am going to measure and take pictures. FINALLY. I don't even know if I will take the right measurements as I don't know what I am doing! I love your blog! :)
