March Currently

I really cannot believe that it is March! I still feel like February just started, but I am really looking forward to what this month has in store. I am so glad to be linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this month's CURRENTLY.

Listening: I rarely watch reality/game TV shows, but occasionally I am home (and awake) when The Voice airs. The creativity is so inspirational. My husband and I just got home from a late night grocery shopping run, and we gave our puppies an extra special rawhide treat. They are always so happy when we give them a chew treat.

Loving: Tomorrow kicks off Read Accross America and our school-wide read-a-thon. We are starting the week with a dress like your favorite book character day. One of my favorite books of all time is Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers.

Thinking: I am such a procrastinator. Monday's are pretty rough for me, and I always feel like I'm running behind. I've been trying really hard to make sure that my clothes are laid out and my lunch is packed. It seems to be helping in the mornings. Since my carpool partner and I have to leave so early, I need every minute I can get!

Wanting: It would be so nice to have teacher work day. I feel like I am bringing more and more home, which is making it hard to keep up on my work at home. I am away from home for so many hours (including my 80-minute commute) that I feel that my puppies deserve attention when I get home. I am always torn between planning, grading and masters work, that I would just love a work day (or snow day) to just get caught up!

Needing: I have a rough draft of my current master's class essay. It is due on March 7th by midnight. I have a feeling that I'm going to be working on it until the deadline. I feel like I am always overthinking our assignments and make them more work than intended. 

Spring Break Plans: I don't have very exciting plans. I know that I have a dentist appointment planned and that I want to do some deep cleaning of our house. The hubby and I will most likely take a long walk or hike with the puppies. I know that I will most definitely need some sleep and enjoy some R & R. 


  1. I can't WAIT to see your Mary Poppins outfit! I hope you post a pic of it on IG!!! I would dress up like Alice in Wonderland, mainly because I'm blonde and have a blue dress! Haha! Do you seriously have an 80-minute commute? Wow, that's awful! I once had a 60 minute commute. It takes so much time away from life. Oh, and by the way, Lindsey did a great job on your blog. It looks super cute! :D
