I am done with my long-term sub position! I have a job at the school in the fall! I am close to finalizing my plans for our new sitter for Isis in the fall! I am home with Isis until sometime in July when I will start setting up my classroom! Free time, here I come!!
For the next few weeks until July, I've got plans! I had great plans to keep up with my blogging when I went back to work, but that really kinda fell through. I've decided I need to just take it easy on myself. I absolutely love blogging and I love reading blogs and keeping in touch with my blog friends. BUT, I also love teaching and I need to focus on that right now so that I can be the best teacher I can for my students. As I've said before, they deserve my absolute best. Isis also obviously deserves my absolute best & between being a mom, wife, teacher & blogger, blogging just took second stage and I think that's okay. I still make appearances - at least once every 2 weeks so I can keep my BlogHer ads up! But really I'm doing this for myself and I will post as I have time and motivation.
So my list for the summer!
I want to organize my iTunes. I know that sounds daunting, but I've been wanting to do it for a while!
I want to read several books - I've got a list coming of my summer reading!
I want to actually go to the pool! I bought two bathing suits this year - both look like this, yes I bought tankinis - and I got Isis some great pool gear & I plan on just having some fun with that since I haven't even worn a bathing suit in at least 3 years & I owe it to Isis to get some pool time!!
I want to plan out & set up my classroom for when school starts in August! I have some great ideas that I'll probably share later & get some mom (& teacher) feedback!
I want to go to the Farmer's Market - fairly regularly. We are doing the CSA again - posts for that will start around June 3 - but I want to supplement with Farmer's Market foods! My big goal for the summer is to prepare fresh food at our house as much as possible. That means Isis & I will be making some frequent trips to the Farmer's Market & grocery stores!
Work Out!!! I really really need to work out regularly! Any moms have any great at-home workout tips or videos that you like?
Blog! I really do want to keep up with my blog again. I love using this to connect and to just document somewhere the crazy and awesome things that are going on with Isis. I would love for her to be able to go back one day & read & see everything she was doing at this point in her life! A digital scrapbook, of a sort!
Sell my house!!!! I am just praying regularly that we are able to sell our house this summer. I know it's a difficult time to sell & lots of people are praying for the same thing, but I am definitely someone who is looking to buy another house & help someone out with that as soon as ours sells!!
And finally, I would LOVE to take Isis to the zoo &/or the aquarium!
Who knows if I'll actually be able to do all these things, but I'm hoping I will!!
What are your summer plans?
