August Currently...

I'm linking up with Farley for this month's currently!


Listening - It's been raining all. day. long. but at least it's cooling down outside. I'm just hoping that it doesn't get any more humid - for my hair's sake!

Loving - As previously posted, boyfriend purchased a color laser printer and I've seriously gone printer crazy. I'm creating letters and posters and magnets galore. At least the excitement is motivating me to get stuff done for the school year! ;-)

Thinking - I've been working summer school for the entire month of July, so I haven't been able to get as much done as I would have liked. We have make ups next week, but I have mentor training one day next week, then I'm helping with our new teacher orientation the week after. This summer has definitely flown by!

Wanting - I've been stalking the weekly ads trying to find good deals. I usually keep my eye out for glue sticks, pencils, twisty papermate pencils (my fave), and expo markers. I've stocked up on glue sticks and expo markers last week, but of course I can never have enough! My teacher friends and I are taking a trip to Raleigh one Saturday to celebrate a birthday and hit up all of the teacher shops! I can't wait!

Needing - Again, because of summer school, I haven't been able to do much of anything. Because of the workshop I have to attend and helping out at the new teacher orientation, I'll only have 4 days total to clean, move desks, and decorate before school starts on the 18th!

What about you guys? What supplies do you keep any eye out for or stock up on during this time?!

    1. Oh no! This summer our principal insisted the custodians wax the floors right after school let out so we're able to set our rooms up before school starts! I hope you have a great school year! :-)

  3. My hubby and I love Mythbusters too:) I'm also a school supply addict (and so is my little sister, and she isn't even a teacher!).
    Good luck in the new school year!

  5. I so know what you're going through. Summer school has been the worst in terms of getting stuff done for the school year! I'm very jealous of your laser printer. My color printer peaced out this year. I'm still mourning it.
