Currently, My First

Hello, friends! Happy Wednesday! I've been wanting to participate in a Currently for awhile. Glad I finally made it!

I am listening to Devil Wears Prada in the other room, not because my husband chose to put it on, but because I thought it would help me fall asleep tonight. Alas, here I am, so it obviously didn't work. Wish I could fall asleep as easily as my husband! He's out as soon as his head meets the pillow.

Teaching Summer Academy last month was great, but so is sleeping in and being on your own schedule. I'm loving the chance to be lazy and not have to set an alarm every night.

Thinking: Each summer I lose my computer for 2 weeks while my district does updates. I have to turn it in on Monday, and it always makes me sad. Fortunately, this is my year to get a new laptop. In the meantime, I have some decor plans that I will work on for our new school-wide theme this year. Of course, I will have to share pictures with you all.

My list is growing, particularly for the Dollar Tree, so I want to make the trip soon. Then, I can also get an overdue haircut. I'm thinking today's a good day. I'll be sure to share my shopping finds after I make it happen.

I finished one of my two grad classes last week. Phew! It was a quick, three-week class. I'm glad to be at a slower pace for a couple weeks as I finish the second one. I need to finish two more assignments this week and feel good about doing a little each day, instead of the rush I felt last month.

I'm not sure what our 4th of July plans are yet. We were just talking about it tonight. We have 3 options: supper and fireworks with his dad, spending time with my family, or just the 2 of us doing whatever we choose around town. It might end up being a last minute decision, as usual.

Thanks, Farley, for an opportunity to participate!

Thanks for reading, friends!

  1. I remember those days of teaching and taking classes. I don't know how I got through it, but I did. I am taking three seminars at Cal State this month. I don't think we teachers ever stop learning. I hope you get to enjoy some down time.

    1. Agreed! One reason we teach is because we love to learn. :)

  2. There is nothing better than not having to set an alarm in the summertime! I'm a night owl, so I always like staying up late, and then sleeping in the next morning. Summer is perfect for that!

    1. Agreed! Cheers to a fellow night owl! I wonder, if we took a poll, what the percentages of night owls and early birds are in blogland. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  3. Good luck with the grad assignments.

    Being lazy is the BEST part of summer vacation!

  4. Feeling your pain by not having a laptop! It stinks!


I'd love to hear what you have to say. :o) Be you, but be kind!
