My May Goal: Survive!

I {Heart} Recess

I'm linking up with Jess from I Heart Recess in order to think about my goals for the month of May.  Thanks Jess for helping me set goals.  I need more of this in my life.

Personal: After reflecting, there is a need in my life to take deep breaths when I am feel things are unjust.  Recently I have developed a habit of yapping my mouth all about it to someone.  Whne things feel unjust, unfair, or just plain ridiculous.   That's just plain no good.  I'm calling it "Maybe May".  Maybe I'll complain tell someone about it, maybe I won't.  But I don't NEED to say it.  

Health: Seriously.  I am in need of WAY more vegis and way LESS sugar!  YIKES!  

Blogging: My goal for blogging is simple.  Plan ahead.  I do so much better when I think things through.  When I had my 100 follower giveaway, I planned my blog posts out so that I was blogging each day.  Now I'm lucky to blog on 5 for Friday.  If I plan ahead, I will have more meaningful posts.  Can I get an AMEN?

School: Pack em up and move em out! 

No, I'm not just talking about my students! (Although that IS the plan!)

I will be moving classrooms over the summer.


Whomp. Whomp. (I am seriously excited about this move...more on that later....)

My goal is to have all of my classroom moved out by the end of May.  I cannot technically move into my new classroom until July-ish.   I will move all of my junk teachery treasures across town up the stairs and into our spare bedroom (Shhh....I haven't told the Mr. just yet!).    

I've got big plans to organize, clean out, and clean up all of the things I've managed to hoard over the past three years.  Please tell me I'm not the only one with a pinterest-I might use this one day-who am I kidding disease?

Fun: I need to start pinteresting sewing projects for the summer.  I have BIG goals to make a light quilt for our queen size bed, but let's be honest...that's a huge undertaking (considering I've only made a baby quilt...) I should probably start small.  Any thoughts?

The final countdown has begun!  I have 18 days of school left! What? What? 

Honk if you love summer!

What is your NUMBER ONE goal for May?

  1. I would LOVE to be able to make a quilt! That is a lofty goal but maybe plan to start this summer and keep working on it as you get the chance. I'm sure you will love the finished product and will be so glad you did it:)
    Eighteen days left! Wahoo!! I am just a tad jealous:)

  4. Thanks for pointing me in the direction of a new LINKY! Will be doing this tomorrow... or the next day... or sometime in May! :)

    I hear ya about yapping! I have a really hard time dealing with stupid people- things- rules- policy- etc. I too like to close a door and complain. It is not productive nor is it His way. So..... maybe I too should just breathe! Can I roll my eyes while I breathe? :)
