Check out my Currently April from Farley's Monthly Linkup!
Listening- I love second grade, I love it, I love it. But goodness gracious these second graders have a lot to say. I have a lot to say too though, so I think that's why we work together so well. But it's nice to be able to sit in silence for just a minute.
Loving- This weekend is going to be legen.... wait for it.... dary (had to do that due to HIMYM series finale this week- don't spoil it! I'm still catching up on the 8th Season) Anyways, this weekend is my city's yearly festival called Come See Me. It's a pretty big deal for us natives. Friday night is a beach bash (my favorite event) and Saturday is Gourmet Gardens (which is just as good). I get to see my friends, eat some good food, and relax after a long week! Also I'm doing some pretty exciting shopping this weekend. I'll leave you in suspense for now.......
Thinking- I'm a planner. When I was 12, I thought I had my whole life planned out. Become a famous singer, design my own beanie baby, marry a Backstreet Boy... a typical 12 year old girl's fantasy. Well each Monday I start planning for the following week, but I never know all of our upcoming events until the Thursday or Friday before they happen. So I have to calm down my planning-ness and wait until Thursday to finish my newsletter. When I do things last minute, I just can't help to think that I'm forgetting something...
Wanting- Yummy, bad for you, food. I've been trying really hard to pack good lunches for school. I've given up soda and I eat veggies and fruits for snack and lunch. I love veggies and fruit, I really do. But some days you just need some soul food. My man has never had Shrimp Boat (popular restaurant where I live) so I'm picking some up for us tonight. If you have never been to Shrimp Boat before, you have got to go and try their chicken. I know Shrimp Boat sells chicken? Yep it's what they're known for! Bring it on, baby!
Needing- I have not been a good coach's girlfriend this season. I've only gone to one soccer game and I left early because everything on my body had turned to ice. Since it's sunny and 80, I'm there today. Anything for you babe.... unless it's cold.
Hours and Last Day- I love our school hours. I really do. Any time someone mentions lengthening our day, I'm the first to say no with a hundred reasons why not. It's not that I don't want to teach longer... believe me I could teach until 6 everyday and still not feel like we're done. It's just that this is the perfect amount of time for the kiddos. When we used to go until 3:15, the last hour was spent trying to wake them up from their post lunch zombie-ness. I report to school at 7:00 (no later than 7:30) and we can leave at 3:30 (although it's usually 5 for me) And June 6th is later than what it should have been *curse you Snow Days!*
Thanks for checking out my currently!
