Summer plans

I've been enjoying my first weekend of summer vacation.  Now I'm linking up with Deanna to write about the 10 things I want to do this summer.

1) Spend time at our cottage in Minnesota- We have a cottage that I've been going to since I was a child.  It's been in our family for more than 100 years.  I love going out there and spending time.  Our neighbors have also had the cottages in their families for 100 years.  So there is loads of history there.

2) Work out on a regular basis- I just joined a gym, so I'm so excited about working out there and taking classes.  I also would like to do some hiking.  Here in AZ if we want to hike in the summer, we need to get up early in the morning, or leave town to hike.

3) Plan for the next school year- Our school district is giving us money to plan for next year, and become more familiar with common core.  I also plan on spending time getting ready for the next school year.

4) Take a trip to the ocean- My favorite nearby ocean is San Clemente, CA and I love going there.  It's a beautiful place, great beach and food.  We've found a place along the ocean where we love spending time.

5) Read a lot- So excited to be able to spend time reading this summer!!

6) Spend more time with family and friends- My brother and his family will be up in MN this summer and I look forward to spending time with them.  I'll also be able to spend time hanging out with friends this summer here in AZ.

7) Have fun-I just want to enjoy the summer-meet friends for lunch, coffee, go to concerts, swing dancing and just enjoying life.

8) Eat healthier foods-I need to get back on track and eat healthier foods-more fruits and vegetables.

9) Pick up at home and get organized-I'm calling it Operation Declutter!  I want to spend time picking up, organizing my records, and make some trips to Goodwill giving away things and getting my closets and house ready for the next year.

10) Buy a new computer-I've been postponing this one.  I really need to look into getting a new computer this summer, while I have some time to learn more about it and get organized.

Schools out for Summer!!

This song played as I was leaving school for the last day.  Our school finished up on Friday.  The last week was pretty busy, but mostly with fun things like our school talent show, water day for the kids, Junior Achievement and all the awards ceremonies.   It's so nice to be finished with school and now I have the summer stretching before me with plenty of opportunities to rest, recharge and plan for the next year.  I'll also have time to focus on taking my self and work on getting organized, as well as a healthier life style.  I took the first step toward that by joining a gym this weekend.  Now I have to stay on track with my goals.

Happy Memorial Day everyone!!

it's May already!!

How did that happen?  April flew by and now it's May and we're almost at the end of the school year.  Only 13 more school days left until the end.  I'm hoping to get better at blogging this summer.  I've been so bad these last few months.  It's been a really hard year, and I'm ready for a long break.  I am not looking forward to the AZ heat however.  Anyway, I'm linking up with Farley's Currently.

Listening-I'm listening to A Person Of Interest.  It's been so good this year and this night is no exception!

Loving-So happy that there are only 13 days left of the school year.  I'm SO excited!!

Thinking-About summer vacation of course!!  So ready to get some much needed rest and relaxation.  Plus, my annual trip to our summer cottage in MN.

Wanting-Some more time to read.  I'm going to get a stack of books to read for this summer.  I'm really looking forward to it!

Needing-I'm really needing to get back in shape.  I've lost the weight, now I need to get toned.  I want to get back into yoga on a regular basis, and maybe a join a gym.  Eating healthy this summer is also on the agenda.

Surprise-I'm really enjoying A Special Sparkle-the newish special ed collaborative blog.  It's a great place to get tips about special education.
