April Currently

Happy, April, everyone!

I always feel like I'm super late to the Currently parties, even when I post the same day. All blogging websites are blocked from school, so I don't see anything until after I'm settled at home, but I'm always amazed to see how many people manage to post during the day. I don't have the time.

Anyway, here are my responses to this month's Currently...

Listening to the Jodi Arias trial on HLN. This is our daily after-school activity. We've followed the whole case and spend way too much of our free time arguing about whether or not she will be found guilty. For those that don't know, she's the woman who killed her ex-boyfriend, slit his throat, and then put him in the shower. Joel likes to defend her just to get under my skin... it works! haha

Loving my freshly detailed car. When Joel picked me up from school today (yes, he drives me to and from school just because he likes to... cute, huh?) I noticed immediately that my carpets and dashboard were much cleaner. I love clean. L.O.V.E. it!

Thinking about my lack of self-control at Target. We stopped there on the way home to pick up four things and walked out with $80 less in our bank account. This always happens to us. And wouldn't you know, one of the four items I needed... yeah... didn't even get it!

Wanting spring break! Three more weeks to go. I feel like The Little Engine That Could... but I'm running out of fumes. And so are my kiddos. I have to find a way to keep them invested!

Needing to get Microsoft Office for my new Mac. It's crazy how limited I feel without these programs! It's forcing me to leave my school work at school, but I need to be able to access files from home!

Advice My best piece of blogging advice is to remember why you started. I think it's easy to get caught up in the data (How many followers do I have? How many views?), but at the end of the day, that's not why most of us are here. I've had to make a conscious decision NOT to participate in every linky party I see because it's diverting my attention from my purpose: sharing my experience. It feels like there's a lot of pressure to be involved in every party, but I'm choosing to select the ones thatI really believe in so I don't get overwhelmed by everything out there! Use your best judgement!


  1. I want spring break too!!!! Ours is next week. Hooray! I keep saying "just a few more days...". Have a great week!

  2. I feel for you! Three more weeks? UGH! You can do it though!

  3. Great advice!

    Your spring break is so LATE! But at least you still have it ahead of you - ours was the second week of March and we have a LONG way to go until we have another break!

    We are blocked from EVERYTHING at school too. I hate it! Glad to find your blog through the linky!

  4. Huh I had no idea about the website for tracking gift cards. Sounds like what I need!
