Goals for May

Happy Monday, everyone!
I made it through my first day back after Spring Break - phew! 
And my coworker Rose shared the fabulous news that we only have 6 more Mondays! 
Where did the time go?

As May is quickly approaching, my heart is racing and mind is scrambling to think about all that needs to get done before the end of the school year.
Jessica from "I {heart} Recess" is having a very timely linky - "May Goals"

Here are my goals for the month:
Personal: I really want to start planning out our dinner menus more effectively. This will help me grocery shop more economically and won't leave me scrambling to find something or stressing because I didn't defrost something after I've left the house. I also need to peruse my Pintrest boards and flag recipes I want to try. I have pinned about 1 million, but have tried like 15 :)

Health: After-Easter sales are killing me! I LOVE LOVE LOVE jelly beans and bought a BUNCH of bags after Easter. Then my husband bought me a couple of bags. Then a coworker gave me a bag. Then my mom...you get the picture. But now they're in my house, calling out to me! And I too often heed their call :)

Blogging: I am so close to 200 followers and I can't wait to host a giveaway! If you don't currently follow me, please do :) It will increase my joy!

School: I really want my students to become better writers. I am determining now to have a valuable writing assignment each week that I can meet with my students to conference about. This way I can help them see the errors and take ownership of their writing so that they understand what is wrong and how to fix it for the next time.

Fun: When I was in high school, I would come down to Manhattan to go to a doctor about once a month. My mom would make the day special by letting me take the rest of the day off and we'd trek around New York City! One of our favorite things to do was tour different exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We haven't been in several years now and are making plans to go in May. I am moving after the school year, so this might be our last opportunity for an easy visit.
