August...still seems like summer to me, but it's the start of the slippery slope back to reality. School is starting for me on August 11th. Time to accept reality, huh? Here's my link up with Farley for her fun Currently series. I always enjoy reading what others are doing each month. Enjoy!
Listening: Just got back from camping at the beach. My washer and dryer are processing more sand than should be allowed. Add to the laundry list, my husband and son's Cub Scout camping laundry. They came back from camping on the SAME DAY as we left for beach camping. So, you see how I'm spending my next few days.
Loving: Finally, our drought woes are temporarily relieved by the biggest summer storm ever! Thunder and lightning had my kids and poor puggle jumping all night.
Thinking: I had a buying binge this morning at the CRACK of dawn! I timed this to help some of my TpT favorite sellers start their days off with a CHA-CHING! I can't wait to download all of my goodies from Ashleigh, Common Core Galore and More, Teaching and Tapas, Bright Concepts 4 Teachers, and Nicole Rios. This is only round one of shopping. I still need to make up my Gemini mind on the other things lurking in my Wish List bin.
Wanting: What every busy mom wants--to wiggle my nose and have a clean, organized house. It's just not in the cards though. As my classroom gets cuter, my house takes a hit...a hard hit. You know it's true, don't you, teachers??
Needing: I've been living all summer with the dreaded COMBO curse. It's just not fair to do to kids and teachers! If it comes to life, I will get the job done, as I have in years past. I can still hope though...
1st Day: My husband is SO happy that I finally took the dozens of toilet paper tubes out of our bathroom. Did you know that it takes a little less than a year to save up toilet paper tubes for my annual Owl Craft? It's a fun first day of school adventure--I'll try to post a picture or two.
That's it for now! Happy August to all of you!
