Currently {August 2015}

So, I totally have mixed feelings about this months currently... I LOVE my girl Farley, but it is also August, which mean school is right around the corner.  I have had an amazing summer, so I really can't complain too much.  Any-who... lets get to Currently!
Listening:  I am way too happy that I am back at my house and enjoying some peace and quiet.  I have had people working in the back of my house all week.  I appreciate them being here, but sometimes you just need a little peace & quite, right?

Loving:  I have also spent the last 2 days getting to hang out with some of my favorite #htxteachers.  They made my weekend.  Between going to an Astros game to bowling, we had a blast.  Every time we get together I know I will leave with a smile on my face and a full heart.  If there are hangouts or meet-ups in your area, DO IT!
Thinking/Wanting:  Around Memorial Day, the addition to my house got flooded in the big storms we had in the Houston area.  My house has been in disarray since. I am so glad that they finished yesterday.  Now all I have left to do is clean and move the furniture back.  It will definitely be getting done soon.  I am ready to have my living room back. :)

Needing:  I have started prepping for back to school.  From making and printing word walls to typing out my scope and sequence for the year.  I feel as if the summer has gotten away from me.  I'll get it all done... I hope!

B2S RAK:  I know that the first few days and even weeks back to school are tough.  Information overload really gets to me.  I plan on emailing or giving my fellow teachers positive notes.  A little goes a long way... as long as its genuine! :)
Enough of my rambling... Head over and check out Currently!


  1. A little note does go a long way - love that idea!!! I need to prep also... eeeks, it's August!!! I wish I could've been there today *sad face* :(
    If you find a way to get your house to clean itself, let me know ;)

  3. Wish I could've been there today too! For some reason I thought it was Sunday and then Katie told me yesterday that it was today :( Boo! But it looks like you guys had so much fun :) #htxteachers definitely are the best!

    PS. If you ever find the magical "cure" to a self-cleaning house, let me know! I'm all for that! ;)

  4. My loving is the same as yours! I really loved hanging out with you today! I can't wait till our next meet-up :).

  5. Your new floors are FAB. I am so so so bummed I didn't get to come today. Poor Sherms is a hot mess. He got all his fur shaved off today- He looks like a little rat dog. I need a #sandymeetup as soon as B2S crazy is over!

  6. I'm going to write some encouraging notes too. I love receiving those notes and pulling them out reading them when I having a rough day. Hope you are able to get everything done!
