Happy New Year and a linky

Downtime- PINTEREST!!
Fitness- I recently downloaded a couch to 10k app and dusted off my running shoes. I'm ready! For real, I have to get ready! I have a 5K memorial to run in March. I.Think.I.Can....I really don't have an excuse. In our gym at school, we were awarded a grant that supplied lots of workout stuff for the kids AND teachers. We have 8 treadmills, 4 ellipticals, 3 bow flexes, 4 exercise bikes. Like I said, I have no excuse...besides laziness..Someone needs to begin a Fitness Linky Party!

My husband asked me today if I have a New Year's resolution. I usually don't because so I surprised him when I said yes. I said, "I am going to buy me stuff this year. You know,  put me first." He said, "Mine is to save money." WELL, I guess both resolutions crossed each other off.....

Tammy at Forever in first is having a Saturday Sayings link up. Hop over there and sign up for a Saturday to share a quote on her blog. 

It will soon be 12:00 here. I need to go snuggle up next to my hubby. Happy New Year friends!!

Linky Party and a Freebie

I am a couple of days late on this Linky Party.  I guess it's better to be late than never. :)
Technology-My mimio board. How did we ever live with out smart boards??
Organization- Dropbox-It's an easy way for our 1st grade team to share ideas. We simply upload links to dropbox and click share.
Prof Growth-Honestly, I learn more from stalking reading teacher blogs than I learn at our annual professional developments!

Freebie time...I hope you can use these!

1. One Little Word- ThAnKfUl!! It would be nice to have a nicer car, bigger house, better clothes, fuller wallet, smaller figure, etc.....As I walk thru this life, I have come to realize that I have been blessed. Some body some where out there would love to be in my shoes. Someone would love to have a house to come home to every day, a healthy family at home, a steady income, a welcoming church family, food. Each and every one of us are very fortunate!!

Silence for Sandy Hook Elementary

From Farley's blog:

 Please join me in a day of silence for teacher bloggers on
Sunday, December 16, 2012,
by only posting the picture below on your blog
and titling your post as "Silence for Sandy Hook Elementary" .

I can't quit thinking about this tragedy. This hits home to all of us.  It could have happened to you. It could have happened to me. It could have been our school babies who were harmed.. I am so proud of those teachers who gave their lives to protect those babies. What heroes!!!!....As I think about this senseless act, I can't help but remember how the devil picked on children and babies in the Bible. The devil is a punk. I've read the end of The Book and it says he will go down!!...Praying for those families who can't  give their kids a kiss good night.
