January Currently...Already?

Where did 2014 go? It's that time again, and I'm linking up with Farley for the January Currently.

The hustle and bustle of Christmas is over. Guests have gone home, the hubs is at work, and it's quiet at my house. I'm not sure I can remember the last time I listened to total quiet, but I'm enjoying it and the fact that I have the house to myself for a few hours.
I've managed to clean out a few cabinets in the last few days, get the laundry done and put away some of the Christmas decorations. I keep thinking I should be doing more, but I find myself sitting down frequently and reading, knitting, surfing the web, buying stuff off of TPT and generally not being all that productive. It feels nice.
I came home with one bag of items to work on over break. My students' narrative writing needs to be scored and put in the grade book. They are still sitting in my teacher bag. The bag has not moved from the spot I set it down in on December 19th. I'm starting to feel like a slacker, but I still haven't picked up the bag. Report cards are looming on the horizon (3 weeks), and I know I'll regret not getting it done sooner, but I'm still enjoying some "me" time.
This coming year I plan to keep up with the habit of going to the gym 3 or 4 times a week. It's something I started in November, and I feel so much better just getting some regular exercise. Sure I could stand to lose 5 or 6 pounds, but I'm not really focused on that. I'm just trying to stay healthy and keep moving.
I have several TPT products I've almost finished that just need some final polishing and proofing. They've been sitting in a folder on my computer desktop for sometime now.  What am I waiting for? I'm not sure, but I need to "get on the stick" as the hubs would say and finish them.
I'm also committed this year to taking time out for me. That generally means spending some time reading for pleasure each day. I also like to knit and have two projects I'm not quite done with that I'd like to finish (hmmm..I'm noticing a theme here). Hopefully, I can be better about leaving work at work and enjoying doing things I love at home more this year.
Head on over to Farley's and link up to join the Currently fun!

Don't feel guilty for taking some "me" time! In a few more days, the opportunities for it will be few and far between!

I ALWAYS want to declutter some more! That is one of my 2015 goals! Organization! :)
