So tired...

My good friend Katie reminded me I have very little time left in January to meet my resolutions. I feel like my creativity is being zapped out of me by my students. I teach 60 American History students and 15 World History students everyday for 90 minutes a period (3) all equaling complete and total exhaustion. I feel fulfilled and challenged, but when I get home the last thing I want to do is A) workout or B) sew/craft. I resolved though and I promise to try a little harder. I will make a post everyday this week and even show you a couple pictures of my classroom. I need some help decorating! Anyways, I'll leave you with this wonderful piece of furniture I think we might buy when we go to Dallas in a week to see some friends!

This year, I resolve...

I came up with this idea to make small resolutions throughout the year, not just one sweeping resolution that will only carry me through February (at best). My problem is I want to follow through with these resolutions, but I'm already at a loss as to where to start.
I would like to start blogging again. I ended when I left Korea because there wasn't too much to say for awhile. I moved to Louisiana by myself to find a teaching job while Grant stayed in Korea and then Alaska for the last three months. He came home in November and we've been just living our lives. We go to work, make dinner together and then go to sleep. There has been very little artistic inspiration in part due to my new job, but mostly because my sewing machine was en route until a couple weeks ago.
This month...i'm going slow here...I resolve to make something new and original with my sewing machine and I plan to blog minimum five times. Will that work? They're more goals than resolutions, but it's a start. It's what I need to be motivated for life outside the box, the box of ordinary I've seemed content with the last half of 2009.
