Alright, it's been awhile.  I've decided to jump back into my blog by joining up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade's Currently linky .  This is my very first time for Currently, so let's see what happens!

Listening to the wonderful snoring of three worn out Australian Shepherds.  If you have ever experienced the energy of an Aussie, you know a tired Aussie is a good Aussie.  I have 3.  That's a lot of energy.  If only there was a way to harness it.

Loving that I still have plenty of days ahead of me on this winter break.  We go back to school on the 8th which means a 4 day work week!

Thinking about what to spend my Amazon gift card on...who'd have thought it would be this tough to spend $150??  Don't worry though, I'll figure it out!

Wanting a self-cleaning house because I just can't seem to keep on top of the tufts of Aussie hair that keep popping up everywhere.  Should dogs shed this much in the middle of winter??

Needing to at least start THINKING about lesson plans.  I am planning on going in on Friday from 8-2:00.  My goal is to do everything on my list (which I have yet to make) so I have the last 3 days of vacation FREE!

OLW:  ME.  This might sound rather self-absorbed but I need to focus on ME this year.  The way I see it, a happier, healthier ME will benefit everyone around me.  Right?

Happy New Year to all of you!  May your blessings be many and your recesses be rain-free!



  1. I also need to start lesson planning. I can't go in until Monday though and we have all day meetings scheduled for that day! :(

    Guess I'll be staying after my meetings on Monday to get things done!

    Happy New Year!
