August Currently!

I cannot believe that it is August already!!!  My, how the time has flown.  Farley just put out her August Currently and I am linking up!

Listening:  To my daughter's iPad.  She's sitting here on the couch playing on it.

Loving:  I almost have a full month left before vacation is over!  Our In-Service isn't until August 26th and our first official day of school isn't until September 3rd.

Thinking:  I am still waiting to get my official call back from HR.  I hope it happens soon!

Wanting:  I really want to start setting up my classroom, but, I can't without my official notice in hand!

Needing:  I have had so much stress and anxiety in my life for the past month and it is starting to take a toll on me physically.  I need to de-stress somehow...

B2s Must haves:
1.  Pentel RSVP Pens.  These are my favorite to write with!
2.  Brand new Sharpies!  Nothing is more exciting than opening a Sharpie for the first time!
3.  Emergency Sub Plans.  Nothing makes me more nervous than having to call out and not knowing how the sub will manage.  I really like this pack from Clutter-free Classroom.

Hope you all are enjoying the rest of vacation if you are still home!  If not, hope you school year is going well so far!

  1. I hate the waiting game during the summer. I have done that 3 times. I hope you get your official call back soon.

  2. Hello!!

    I just found your blog through the Currently!

    I juuuuuuust went through all of that HR hoopla and shenanigans this summer to secure my position here in NC. I just made a move from Louisiana. So I can definitely empathize!! Hope everything works out smoothly :)

  4. Awww hope you're ok- you need a massage and lots of chocolate haha. No but seriously, that doesn't sound too good so I hope your stress levels go back to normal soon. I can't believe you've got nearly a month before you're back! I'm in New Zealand so it's the middle of winter here and our big summer break isn't until mid December. I'm just finishing off my first week back after a two week break :)
