I'm back for May Currently

Oh wow, I haven't blogged in WAY too long. Let's see if I even remember how to do this! I feel so bad, but life has been throwing me curveballs lately and sadly, my little ol' blog is on the back burner. I decided to crawl out of my cave for one good reason: Farley's May Currently linky!

Listening: everyone's asleep except me and the birds outside. It is so peaceful to have the house quiet and just hear those happy little birds chirping and singing away out there. 

Loving: self explanatory, but now I'm noticing those toes need some TLC...pedicure time!

Thinking: my oldest is graduating from high school and I can scarcely go one day without tearing up a little (ok, a lot) just thinking about her going off to college and not getting to see her beautiful face everyday. She got a soccer scholarship (her dream come true) and will be playing at a small school only two hours away. I'm super excited to help her decorate her dorm room and we are two weeks away from the big P-A-R-T-Y! That reminds me, I have a ton of stuff to do! I hope Party City has really big carts...

Wanting: I would like a big life remote control. I would like to fast forward through the commercials (staff meetings, grading work, giving tests, laundry, chores), pause it for a while so I can get things done, and replay the really good parts (graduation, weekends, parties, soccer games, time with my daughters). Time is one of those slippery things that you can't hold onto when you want to, yet it won't go fast enough when you need it to. 

Needing:like I mentioned above, life has been a little out of whack. I won't bore you with the details, but I'm feeling pretty worn out and truly want to finish the last 3 weeks of school with a smile on my face and the kind of energy the kiddos deserve. I have had such a great school year and have great kiddos too, but they have been driving me totally, completely, 100% nuts lately. Deep breath. 15 days.

Summer yes: I seriously can't wait to go the TpT conference in LV this summer!
Summer hope: I really hope my daughter can find a good summer job so she'll quit asking me for money!
Summer dream: I'd love to reorganize and decorate my home office. It's a total mess and doesn't feel like a place I want to be right now. Maybe a pretty office will make me want to blog more??? It's worth a try, right?


  1. Hope you have a great time in Vegas! Can't wait to hear all about it :)

  2. My toes are in need of a pedicure too! I really just want someone to rub my feet.

  3. I love your idea of a big remote control for life where we can forward through the boring & mundane :) Life often seems to get away from us so I know where you're coming from on the not blogging as much as you'd hoped! Sending you best wishes for the weekend :) Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

  4. Thanks, Suzy, for all of your sweet comments this morning on my post! I love your blog and it appears we have some things in common:) I just started following your blog as well!

  5. I can totally relate to the need to finish strong. Between testing and practicing for our upcoming musical, my 6th graders haven't had structure or routine in far too long. They are out of control and wearing me down. ...we can do this, we can do this...

  6. Prettiness always makes you more productive :)
    See you in Vegas!
