2014 Resolutions!

I am linking up with A Peach for the Teach to share my 2014 resolutions.
A Peach for the Teach: Behavior Supports & Multi-Age

Here they are, simple and to the point, let's just hope they are simple enough for me to keep!
Personal - Make dinner more is simply that. I use to be good at getting dinner ready and all of us eating as a family, but it seems I have run out of time. But what I really think is, is that my husband doesn't get home from work most days till 7 pm and my kids are 17 and 19 with busy lives of their own. It is hard to get motivated to make dinner when nobody is home.

Professional - Network more. I sub, I want my own classroom, there are no more pink slipped teachers in my district so everyone is now in the same boat, subs. With a little networking I am hoping I can get myself a classroom next year.

Classroom - Get my own, I am tired of subbing and not teaching material how I want, or believe should be taught.

Blog/ TpT - Try not to be as obsessed with them as I have in the past. I need to take better care of myself and my family and let my blog and TpT store not be the forefront of my thinking.

Just-for-fun - Craft more. I love to paint, create and make but since I started blogging I have done none of that. It is time I start again and now with Pinterest, there are endless possibilities!

As I said, my resolutions are simple, I just have to make them important enough to actually do them.

Good luck to the rest of you on tackling your own resolutions!


  1. I am RIGHT there with you on making dinner more ... that skill pretty much came to a halt with the car crash last January and I never really have resumed it yet ... and with only one child left in the house, it doesn't seem as important to spend hours fixing a big meal ... so I'll cheer you on if you'll cheer me on ... it's so much healthier physically and emotionally to sit around our tables at home and dine with whomever is there, right? Thanks for some tasty food for thought.

    Happy new year, Shawna!


  2. I found these awesome, easy crock pot recipes on Pinterest (search crock pot recipes). Once every two weeks you could spend an afternoon making 10 meals (figuring you might want to have a pizza or take out night here and there) and freezing them in freezer bags. Then, each night while you're sleeping you could put them in the crock pot and let them cook. Put the crock pot in the fridge when you get up, and when you get home, just heat up your dinner! Takes 5 minutes to make dinner each night, and then you don't have to worry about leaving the crock pot plugged in all day (makes me nervous).

    I hope you get your own classroom soon! You have so many great ideas!

    Thanks so much for linking up with me! I enjoyed reading your post. Happy New Year!
