I'm Currently...May 2016

This happens every year. It's May. I look at my blog and think HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?! I haven't blogged since January, y'all. I have a handful of "draft" posts. They're a hot mess and either have paragraphs of old news or one sentence. Yes, one sentence. (Why even save that as a draft?! #EyeRoll) When I saw that Farley was having her LAST currently, I knew I had to join the other fabulous bloggers and help her go out with a bang. :) These posts are so fun to read and also so fun to do. Maybe my currently post can help explain why I have been so busy and MIA. Maybe my blog should be the MIA (every few months) Teacher Blogger! Haha!

Here is my currently:

Listening: NOTHING. I don't know about you guys, but my class' volume goes from nada to 100 in about 2 seconds these past few weeks. When I come home, I literally sit in silence for a good bit of time before I am ready for noise again. Haha!

Loving: THIS is the reason I have been so crazy-busy. I am in the process of buying a house and it is the craziest, most drawn-out process of my life. I was not on the lookout for houses and was just being nosey when I went to look at this house. I loved the character and charm and was sold as soon as I saw it. I was so fortunate to live at home through college as I lived within driving distance to campus, so this is my first time going through this process. I have been crazy-busy spending time looking at the house, signing documents, signing more documents, getting carpal tunnel, and then signing some more. I honestly understand what my kinders feel like when they don't understand because I do not always understand all this fancy lingo they use when buying a house. Closing is the last day of school. I'm crazy, I know.

Thinking: (See last paragraph! Haha) On top of all of this, we have been reassessing the Observation Survey the kids took at the beginning of the year and it is a process, let me tell you! It is an AMAZING resource, but it can be very lengthy. 

Wanting: Northeast Indiana has not been kind to us this spring. We get a little taste of warm weather and then BAM! You're bringing the winter coat out again for recess. Just give us nice weather. We get out so early this year (May 20th!!!!) and I am definitely banking on some nice pool days in my future.  :)

Needing: Two words: Fountain. Pop. #NuffSaid

Truth: Haven't done it. Obviously I have things gathered, prepped, and ready for the kids, but I haven't take the time to write it down. Terrible decision on my part, but I haven't done much besides test the kids. I did take the time to write my plans! :) #GoMe 

What are you CURRENTLY up to? :) 


  1. Hopefully you get your warm weather soon! We already are getting really warm weather consistently here in Northern VA

  2. I hope warm weather hits you soon! I love the warm weather. I tend to procrastinate too and then I feel overwhelmed this time of year. I hope you get a lot of things done that you are hoping to do! Kristi Teaching Little Miracles
