While many of you wonder what is wrong me for being upset with another day off, I just want to say that we are now on our THIRD snow day of the year and this is only January 6th. At this rate, we will be in school until July.
I feel stuck.
Cabin fever has set in.
I can't feel my fingers and my poor dogs don't want to go outside.
It's times like these that I need my One Word for 2014...
Yes, I know that's a lot of words...but my One Word is right there in the middle -- FORWARD. All those other little words around it are what moving forward will help me do. :)
So while school hasn't decided to move forward yet this year, I have managed to go forward in some other ways:
* I've been on my treadmill FIVE times since January 1st. I know this because I am keeping track on this cute little spreadsheet made by Shannon at IRunReadTeach. Visit her blog and you can pick one up for yourself!
* Today, I ran (on the treadmill) for a total of 20 minutes. (OK, not all at once, but a total of 20 minutes today.) This is HUGE for me! Usually if you find me running, there's probably something chasing me, but not so today!
* I managed to clean my office. I discovered some things that I didn't know I had. Hmmm...
* I met up with some wonderful bloggers on My Fitness Pal to encourage each other on our journey for better health in 2014. Thanks, ladies!! ;)
Keeping One Word in mind is very powerful! To remind myself of this, I made this picture to put on my desk at work to remind myself to go forward there too!
With this little burst of creativity, I am linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It. Her little linky party has really helped me move "forward" with my craftiness this year, and I thank her for that! : )
Now let's just hope that the weather begins to move forward so we don't see this high temperature again:
