I lost a whole week of January, and it still seemed like it kind of drug along. The first week back was a slow transition into teacher workdays. All of our regularly scheduled meetings and meetings and meetings were cancelled. One of our SPED paras passed away on NYE night. He was such an amazing, wonderful man. Almost our entire campus attended his memorial service.
The next week my partner was sick and then hospitalized. I was going out of my mind because they could not get her body regulated. I was terrified she was going to die.
Then the next week we had MLK day followed by an ice day. Then I was sick with the flu that then turned out not to be the flu but some other unidentified thing. I was out basically the whole week.
I went to my first diabetes class and learned in just my Whataburger meal alone I’m eating 3-4 times the amount of carbs I should be consuming in one meal. Did you know a roll from Texas Roadhouse (or other comparable steakhouse) is TWO of your three allowed carbs?!?! Y’all. I’m gonna die. My entire food group is carbs…and ground beef. Girl likes her hamburgers. I am trying to really watch my portions and also what time I eat. I have three more classes to go to.
I thought I was going to get all my credit card debt paid off this month by transferring my balance to the credit card I have a 5.99% lifetime APR on. NO. That was false. A lie. While I still would have taken advantage of that offer at the time, it did not specify that it was in fact not for my lifetime, but the lifetime of that balance transfer. I was kind of pissed after being so positive and hopeful that I was finally going to get everything squared away, especially since I have to buy tires this month. I was going to use my income tax refund to pay for that and put the rest on my loan payments. That won’t be happening. I do feel a little better though. My laptop will be paid off this summer and I only have about $1800 left on one of my loans, so there will be more money I keep come summertime. I did change up what Plexus Products I am purchasing and dropped the cost by $50. If I still am not seeing improvements by June (1 entire year taking the products), I am going to cancel it all.
I have also been losing my mind over UIL. I’m the coordinator for my school and we had a pitiful turnout this year. So many of our kids didn’t show up to the competition. Next year my school hosts the competition and we brainstormed some ideas to put in place for next year to be better. I am starting to also see small gains with yearbook. We have 6 pages submitted and several almost ready to go. We need to work on some more!
I didn't start doing monthly intros until mid-year last year.

Cera has struck again! Richard sent this photo yesterday while I was at school. That bag was just opened on Christmas. She pulled it down and showered herself and Baby with the whole bag. #sistercera #trouble #troublemaker #sly #sneaky #thief #idontneedyou #ifeedmyself #idontcare #treatyourself #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinsta #pupsofinstagram #pupsofinsta
The case I ordered came in so I could finally organize my pens and markers. I feel like the hot mess of my growing bullet journal materials held me back last year, so I resolved to find a solution. I'm so happy with my new set up! #papermate #papermateflair #huhuhero #huhuheromarkers #staedtler #staedtlerpens #bulletjournal #bulletjournallove #bujo #bujolove #bujojunkies #organization #problemsolver #happy
Last year I had a raggedy checklist version for this page. It was one of my pages I was most embarrassed by because of the utterly crappy job. I spent some time thinking what I really needed to include for my reading challenges this year. I NEVER remember to link up stuff, so I've made a fail-proof system to keep me on track and it looks SO much better! 🖍📅 #challenge #reading #blog #blogging #monthlytasks #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bulletjournallove #bulletjournaladdict #bulletjournaljunkies #bujo #bujolove #bujoaddict #bujojunkies #bujoideas #bujoinspiration #washitape #sharpie #thisishowiplan #showmeyourplanner #planningtime

I was out of the starting gate at a blast when January started, and then I ran out of steam somewhere around the 15th. I’ll have to kick it up this month.

I didn’t make too big of a dent in January like I had hoped, but with UIL now over I am going to crank up the reading!
