Currently February

I'm linking up with Farley for this month's currently linky. Wow, I haven't done this since LAST YEAR!

Listening: to absolutely nothing. I love it. J is still sleeping and Kramer is outside running around. Feel nice to have nothing going on right now.

Loving: Even though it's Sunday aka Laundry day, it's still the weekend. I was out of town all day yesterday, so it feels nice to know I have at least one day to relax and lay around.

Thinking: I've been so busy at school with everything going on, I've gotten so behind on posting new products in my store. I have so many ideas and I have started new products but never seem to have time to finish them. And my poor blog....thank goodness for linky parties!

Wanting: Since our curriculum facilitator left, all of the department chairs at our school pretty much were given her responsibilities while we find a replacement. It's been so stressful to take care of administrative duties on top of having to prepare weekly lessons and teach. I've been keeping up with everything our principal expects us to do, but I do need a mental health day before I get burnt out.

Needing: One of my best friend's from college found out her fiance needed emergency surgery. We need all of the prayers and good vibes we can get. Me and my other best friend from college drove out to Wilmington (about 2 hours away) to surprise her and give her support. We took her out to lunch yesterday and I'm glad that we were able to spend time with her, even if it was only for a little while.

Pageant Title: Miss Workaholic would be best fitting for me because I am ALWAYS working. Don't get me wrong - I love my job and I love helping others, and deep down inside, I kind of enjoy being a workaholic because it keeps me busy., Butttt I do enjoy my days where I don't have anything to do and can enjoy the silence. Everyone needs one of those days.


  1. It's hard enough taking care of regular teaching duties, grade level chair duties, but administrative duties too? Thats a lot to take on! Hope this is only temporary for you! You do need a mental health day!

  2. So sorry to hear about your friend's fiancee.
    And I am hoping your workload gets lighter soon. Take a deep breath; you can do this. :)
    Have a great week!

  3. I also need to work on some TpT products!! Sending prayers for your friend's fiance! I think we can all be so busy sometimes that it really is nice to have some relaxing time! Hope you have a great week!


  4. I feel the same way about being a workaholic. As teachers, I think we wear so many hats that we become used to the "go-go-go" lifestyle. Taking a moment to sit back and relax is a beautiful thing. My thoughts are with your friend and her fiancé! Happy February!

  5. Those unfinished TPT products are like a little devil on my shoulder sometime...distracting me from work I have to do first! :) I love your Pageant Title! That is a good one to win. :)
