January Currently

I completely missed the Currently in December, there was just way to much going on, so I wasn't going to miss the first Currently of the new year! Here's what I'm up to right now;



Listening: Ugh, I swear half of the TV that I watch is entirely because my husband turned it on and left the room, but not before I got completely sucked in.  This is why I'm currently watching an all day Pawn Stars marathon, it's also how I managed to see the majority of the college football season and every episode of American Pickers. 

Loving: I spent the majority of last week happily spending most of the gift cards that I received for Christmas.  I love to shop, so I feel like getting a gift card is extra special because it gives me the opportunity to enjoy shopping without feeling guilty for spending the money.  I was smart though, and I saved a couple for when I really need some retail therapy!

Thinking: I know, it's that time of year when we all swear we're going to lose 20 pounds.  This never really works out for me, but I can get on board with the need to be a little healthier.  For now, that means making time to work out - they say it takes 21 days to start a habit, so if I can last that long it'll get easier, right?!

Wanting: this is really self explanatory I'm sure. I would love another week off, but for now I'm going to have to settle for planning a spring vacation so I have something to look forward to. 

Needing: I always promise myself that I'm going to put the Christmas decorations away before I go back to work. I've spent most of the day working on just that, but I've still got the tree left to tackle. 

One word: My word for the next month is care - specifically, I need to take a little better care of myself - I need to get more sleep, schedule an annual physical, make a dentist appointment, call the eye doctor and order new glasses, and I could probably use a haircut.  November and December are months for taking care of other people, so January is going to be about catching up on things I need to do for me. 

Thanks for stopping to see what I'm up to, I love to share this piece of myself with all of you! You can see what other great teacher bloggers are up to at Oh Boy 4th Grade!

  3. It's always lots of fun putting up the holiday decorations and not so much bringing them down. Totally agree. I don't rush it like many people do. They come down when they come down. Happy New Year :)
