What I've been doing over break

I haven't done anything productive really over break. I've blogged a lot and joined a new blog The Best Endings which I'm super excited about. I revamped my items on my Teacher's Notebook store so they show a little more of what is inside the packet. Hadar at Miss Kindergarten made that suggestion and I finally figured out how to do it. I bought clip art for a new packet I want to work on. I still have 4 days left of break so I plan to spend one day next week working on school stuff. I made a song book of all the songs we sing during morning meeting. I want to share it  but not sure if I can. They are all Dr. Jean songs and I got the lyrics from her website. Anyone know if it's ok to share it or not? I have been reading The Daily 5 and trying to figure out how I want to work this in my classroom. I still have a lot of questions if anyone wants to answer them. See the previous post.
I've spent a lot of time with my fiance and my family. I've loved all the extra time I've gotten to spend with my niece. It's been so wonderful. She's definitely one of my loves and is growing and learning so much everyday. I've crafted some finishing up a few presents that didn't get done before Christmas. I need to do some cleaning and organizing before I go back.
I think this might have been a better post as what I still need to do over break.
I still need to do lesson plans and flip charts for when I go back. I still need to finish a letter detective pack I've been working on for months. I still need to clean my bedroom and my guest room and the bathrooms. I still need to write thank you cards.
Oh well. Good thing I still have a few days left. What have you been doing over the break? Link up with Clutter Free Classroom and see what everyone has been up to.
