Primary Calendar for the Year

Currently {January}

Happy New Year!  Hope you all had a safe and happy New Year's Eve and a restful day!  We had a very early dinner with cousins, dropped off the boys at their grandparents and poor hubby was sleeping by 10:00 as he is battling a horrible head cold.

As it is the first second day of the month, I am linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy Fourth Grade for Currently.

This month Farley has some great links at the bottom of her post if you need some help linking up.  I remember it took me three months to figure it out!  (OK, I know that I am technology challenged!!) Then be sure to comment on the two blogs before you and one after you to share the love and maybe meet a new friend:)

I am loving lazy vacation days, sleeping in, surfing my favorite blogs, watching tv and staying up late:) I even boxed up all my Christmas ornaments this week into these super cute boxes and didn't wrap one.  Fingers crossed they all make it to next year! I picked up 3 and went back for one more and they were already SOLD OUT!  I {love}organization.

I am truly blessed and so thankful for my little family.  God is good. I am committed to spending less and saving more this year.  One of our family hopes is for a cruise the summer of 2015.  Justin will be graduating from middle school and Zach from elementary.  Sounds like a perfect time for a celebration:)

I have completed my Score! {Fry Words 401-500} pack and would love to give one  away. It includes an assessment page (100 words), flash cards, take home lists (25 words each) and a certificate of mastery.

I will be giving one away Friday night.   Just leave a comment with your One Little Word or New Year Resolution along with your EMAIL please!

  1. I agree with you about needing to unplug. I get so distracted by t.v., blogs, and pinterest that I don't realize how much time I actually waste. Your Fry words unit looks great - too bad I'm only teaching math/science this year! Happy 2014!

  3. Hi Tammy! I found your blog through the Currently link up. I LOVE those boxes you got for your ornaments! As I was putting mine away I remembered that I meant to get some. Maybe next year! :) I hear you on spending less- hubby and I love going out to eat so we really need to eat at home more and spend less money. My word for 2014 is BALANCE!
