I’ve been doing this “one little word” dealio for a few years now.

Happiest of New Years!

Oh dear. It’s January 2 and I’m already behind.

I had some rather lofty goals for beginning this year. I wanted to clean and organize the downstairs learning space where the children spend most of their day. (I didn’t.) I wanted to do the same for my teaching space. (I haven’t.) I wanted to rework the daily schedules, rhythms, and routines. (I’m barely started.) I wanted to completely revamp the blog (not done clearly) and have a plan for content every day this month.(I’m trying.) I wanted to be ready for my classes tomorrow (getting there) and have a menu plan (getting there) and place a grocery order (not there yet.) My oldest is leaving to move back to Boston on Monday and I wanted to have some things ready for him. I wanted to choose my watchword for the year and write out some resolutions and create a new planner.

2015… One little word

,

Every year I pick a watchword or “one little word” to be my guide for the year. Last year, it was fly, and my year was amazing. I have learned so much this past year, about myself and about the world. I got a fabulous new job, released my children onto the world, made amazing friends, pursued my own interests, and generally had a hell of a good time. Past words have been home, joy, hope, and peace.

Happy Waldorf Wednesday!

I’m slowly slogging my way out of the January doldrums. Although I do feel a little better having read that other people go through this as well. Misery loves company and all that…

I posted at the beginning of the year that my word for the year was “home”.  And I’ve already done some much-needed tasks. My mudroom was mucked out and organized. I (finally) unpacked our books and organized our little library. And I completely cleaned the house to get ready for my mama’s visit tomorrow. I even found this nifty word art for only 50 cents at Michaels!
