One Little Word

I've been reading about "One Little Word" all over blog-land.  In the past I set goals and resolutions, but I really love the idea of having one word to focus on.

Here is my OLW. . . . . . . . .

This word really encompasses the things I want to work on in all areas of my life.

Health - I need to be more disciplined in what I eat and the amount of exercise I get, especially during the school year.  It's easy when I get stressed out and busy to bypass the gym and stop for fast food or get take-out on my way home.

School - I need to work on my lesson plans done before the end of the week and getting things prepped ahead of time.  I have planning time built into my week and a TA but I usually end up going in on the weekends and working in my room.

Spiritual - I want to spend time in my Bible in the morning before I get ready for school, but it's super easy (and very tempting) to hit snooze until the last possible moment.

P.S. -  It's back to school for me in the morning. . . . .15 kiddos who have been out of their normal routine for 2 weeks.  I'm planning on reviewing and practicing all of our routines and procedures tomorrow (with a few fun things thrown in too!).

P.P.S - It is f r e e z i n g here right now.  Seriously, my car said - 6 when I was running errands yesterday.  It's so cold that when I go outside, my nose hair freezes (sorry, TMI).  Hopefully it won't be cold enough for us to have to have indoor recess tomorrow, that may send me over the edge!


  1. I love your OLW and the "plans" you have for it:) I need work in all those areas too! I'm a terrible stress eater! Yikes! I haven't posted my word yet but plan to soon! I can't believe it is that cold there!! Don't think I could handle it. I live in Florida and tomorrow is supposed to 29 in the morning!!! That's super cold for us!!! Happy New Year!!
