July Currently!

How in the heck is it July already?!  Well, it isn't technically, but it's going to be here.  SOON.  I am super excited that Farley posted the Currently early.  I've been wanting something to post, so, here goes!

Listening:  All that I can hear right now is the A/C until humming.  It is wonderful.  No TV, no screaming child, no lumbering husband, no nothing!  I needed a bit of piece and quiet.  I feel like I was wound up way too tightly today.

Loving:  Today was really technically my first day of Summer Vacation!  I had a two day training that followed the last day of school.  So, I am officially on vacation!  Woot!

Thinking:  Yeah, I know.  I've just barely put this past year to rest and I am thinking about next year.  Although I have been given a huge hint that I am going to remain in the same grade/school, I can't help but wonder if things will change.  I will not get my official notice until the end of August.  Bummer!  My colleagues and I have been discussing doing a rainforest theme this year, so, I have been researching all kinds of things for that topic.  From books to decor to items on TpT...You name it; I've searched it.

Wanting:  Ugh, of course, as soon as vacation starts the weather turns yucky.  It's been nothing but rainy, cloudy, humid and stormy.  I want beach weather!  WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!

Needing:  There are a lot of changes going on in our district and some in our school as well.  I have been finding that I may be in a different room next year.  The planner in me needs to know. Like now.  I am so "Type A".

Tip:  Pace yourself.  I am still a budding blogger and I am often overwhelmed by the awesomeness of other teacher blogs out there.  I want to be just like them.  But, I must remind myself that Rome was not built in a day and that I have a life to live outside of blogging.  I wish I had more time to put toward creating TpT products and making my blog awesomesauce, but, I don't and I need to get over it.  So, if you are new at blogging; pace yourself.  It will always be a work in progress and it should always be fun!

HAPPY SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Hope you find out soon where you will you, that would drive me CRAZY! We have already been out of school for a month, but we go back in less than 4 weeks (July 25 for me, Aug 1 for the kids)! Enjoy you vacation and your down time!!

  2. Ahh! That would drive me crazy not to know where I was going to teach until August. Also, good advice. It is hard not to compare ourselves to the BIG bloggers out there. I'm try to take it day by day :)
