Currently... Late!

Note to self: the ONE day you don't check the computer will be the day Currently posts, leaving you far behind the curve... again! Good thing I was early with my submission last month!

Listening - I'm listening to the book Wonder by RJ Palico on Audbile. It's one of my favorite things to do while I clean, drive, or play on the computer. I just can't start reading anything... cuz I can't think while I listen without losing the story. So far... I have to be honest, I'm not in love with this book like everyone else. It's just okay. I definitely see how it would be beneficial for teaching empathy and point of view. Maybe I need to just keep listening?

Loving - I've been able to spend some quality time with some of my girls in the past week, and I have LOVED every second of it. It reminds me how great it is to be back home with people who care about me. Twice now, I've gone to a friend's house in the morning and stayed until past dinner! It's so great to be able to catch up!

Thinking - Today is my beautiful grandma's birthday. I miss her more than I can say. I wear her ring                                                                      every day and think of her every time I catch of glimpse of it on my finger. My mom and sister are planning a baking day in her honor.

Wanting - Oh, these grey hairs needs to be colored... desperately! I haven't had my hair done since March... and I was getting so good about being consistent about it. Part of my problem is that I miss my stylist in Baton Rouge. He was the best!! I'm vowing to make an appointment today!

Needing - I still haven't found a job. Cross your fingers AND toes that something comes up before the school year starts! Cuz I still have no clue what else I'll do.

Back 2 School Must Haves:
1. Interactive Notebooks (and this FABULOUS resource from Erin at I'm Lovin' Lit. And even though I don't have this one yet, I'm POSITIVE it's equally as awesome! Seriously... if you haven't grabbed these yet... do it... now!)
2. Flair pens are my favorite!
3. Iced coffee. I don't care where it comes from... Dunkin' Donuts, McDonald's, International Delight... whatever. I just know I will need that caffeine to wake me up before dawn once school starts!


  1. You have gray hair, too?! I think we're going to be good friends.

    Never tried iced coffee before - I like mine slightly warm with only sugar, no cream.

  2. Found your blog through Currently and I am your newest follower. Would love for you to head over and check out my blog! I am so close to 100 followers and I am having a classroom theme bundle giveaway!

  3. Erin's Interactive Notebook is on my wish list too!

  4. Thanks so much Erin! You've got to stick with Wonder. I had the same reaction as you through at least the first 1/3 of the book. I just don't care for cheesy. Also, could the voice for Auggie BE any more annoying?! About the time you get to Jack's point of view, let me know if you feel like it's gotten any better... :D
