Goals- Day 13

Another fun day in Kindergarten today. My kids are SO loud this year. I'm convinced that is why I've been getting more headaches than usual. Tomorrow this will be attacked from all angles with a giant volcano visual that will help children learn how to regulate their voices. So I hope.

I did have a good laugh today when we were studying the letter H. The kids were coming up with words that start with H when one of my sweet little girls raises her hand and says, "hot diggity dog." Awesome, really.

I was going to write a nice fun post today about something (no idea what) but the time got away from me and now it's 8:15 and I still have work to do. So all you get is my day 13 goals.

This Week

1. get my hair cut, yikes.

2. clean my classroom.

3. start reading a new book.

1 Month

1. plan Christmas presents (doing event gifts this year, so hopefully no mall shopping trips!)

2. maintain work out schedule so i don't feel like bum come Christmas.

1 Year

1. let go of work drama (somehow).

2. be consistent with running + yoga (no injuries).

3. read more and write more letters/cards.

5 Years

1. go to the Amalfi Coast + Switzerland.

Of course tonight, I'll probably wake up around 3:30 am and come up with 16 more goals, all of which need to be completed tomorrow. Obviously.


  1. It's good to have goals in mind. At least it gives you something to work toward.

  2. In 5 years I plan to crash your Switzerland trip.

  3. your this week goals = my goals. haircut, clean my desk, read more.

    and YES to sending more letters and cards. penpal-ing it up is such a lost art these days!

  4. I'm hoping to go to Switzerland and/or Austria in late 2011. And the Almalfi Coast is another dream vacation...but who knows when that will happen! :)

  5. I love creating goals for the week.
    So you have work drama? Yikes. Not good. Actually I have some work drama going on right now as well. It's getting kind of awkward too, I feel like I'm back in third grade!

    I have an idea to get your kids to settle down...spike their lunch juices with vodka ;) hehe, jk, obviously, I applaud you for doing what you do, and for having such patience to deal with loud children, I don't know if I could do it!!

  6. If you figure out how to let go of the work drama, let me know. :-)

  7. Those are great goals! My fave is the Amalfi Coast + Switzerland trip! I'd like to go on a similar trip, too!

    The hog diggity dog comment is priceless :)

  8. I like the short term and long terms goals. Some god ones for the holidays!

    I hope that volcano visual helps.

  9. Love the hot diggity dog comment!

    When my daughter was in kindergarten, I was in charge of snacks for the week. I took the task a bit too literal, because it said: bring something with meat, cheese, pretzels, sweet. I thought I had to make that all into ONE snack!

    So I bought sour dough pretzel nuggets, I cut out strips of bologna and cheese, wrapped it around each pretzel nugget, then wrapped them up with skinny red licorice to make it look like a wrapped present.

    It took me HOURS to make, but all the kids loved them. However, one Mom said "all Dillon wants at home are the pretzel packages - thanks!"

  10. These are great goals! This year I'm working on creating positive goals with you should check it out!

  11. My friend just got back from the Almafi coast. She said other than the crazy driving, it was AMAZING!
