Currently enjoying my holiday vacation!

It's been so nice to have a long weekend (five days).  It allowed me the opportunity to relax, recharge and get back to feeling like myself again.  I've been trying to get back to my normal activities that have been neglected this last month or so.  Between being stressed out and feeling under the weather I've let a lot of things fall by the wayside-like swing dancing, yoga, spending time with friends and just enjoying life.  I need to work really hard at maintaining that balance between work and play once I get back to school and into the routine again.

Anyway, were moving into a new month and the end of 2013, and with the new month comes another Currently one of my favorite linky parties.  So I'm joining up with Farley and share what's going on.

Listening-I'm watching Damages on Netflix.  I saw the first four episodes this summer and loved it.  So happy to see Season 5 finally.  It was long awaited!

Loving-I'm loving this time of year.  I love the holiday music, time spent with family, my parents return to Phoenix, and lots of holiday foods and drinks-butternut squash soup, gingerbread lattes at Starbucks and of course the weather in Phoenix is so nice to so it's fine to be outdoors.  There's also a lot of time to enjoy it with Thanksgiving and Christmas vacation. 

Thinking-I've been thinking about my plans for the week (almost done) and revamping my behavior plan.  I've been using Class Dojo and sticker charts, but they don't seem to have much of an effect on my toughest students.  I'm looking into other options to add into my repertoire.

Wanting-I really want to get back into my regular routine of blogging on a more regular basis, and learning how to make products (I never seem to have the time or energy or ideas to start doing this) and gaining more followers.

Needing-This year has been pretty stressful, and between that and being under the weather for about a month, a lot of things have fallen by the wayside.   I haven't done a lot of my fun activities like swing dancing, yoga, hiking and spending time with friends.  I need to maintain that balance once school begins again and keep a better balance between work and play.

Favorite tradition-I can't think of any real traditions I have.  The main one is spending Christmas with my parents.  During that time we go to movies, drink egg nog and enjoy our time together.  I also enjoy the holiday treats at Starbucks-gingerbread lattes and cranberry bliss bars.  Yummy!

Anyway, please join up with this fun linky party and let us know what you're doing currently. 

I'd love to hear from you!  Happy holiday and I hope you enjoy this holiday season!!
