I think this is the first time in a long time that I am actually linking up with Farley on the 1st of the month for Currently. How in the world is it September 1st already? I just finished my first week of school with 26 second graders, so this long weekend was just what I needed to recover and recharge.
Listening: Football has been on the TV all weekend. My husband and I both love football, both college and NFL. Our Fantasy Football draft was on Saturday, so we’ve been watching NFL Network to set our line ups for week 1.
Loving: My birthday is next Saturday and I can’t wait to celebrate with my friends. A few friends are traveling up from Southern California for the weekend. I miss living close to these friends, so I enjoy every minute we get to be together.
Thinking: I have a to-do list a mile long to prepare for the third week of school and my birthday weekend. My plans are done for next week, but I feel like I should be working on the following week’s plans since I won’t have time next weekend.
Wanting: I have been keeping four students after school each day to complete all of the beginning of the year assessments. I am loving all the information I am gaining about my new kiddos, but it is tedious. I should be done by Thursday…fingers-crossed.
Needing: I made it to the gym before work four days last week. I think this is a routine I can keep up with because I get my workout over and done with before the school day even starts. I no longer dread going to the gym after a long day. I need to make it to the gym today so that I start this week off on a good note.
3 Trips: I would love to visit both Norway and Ireland to see where my ancestors came from. Luckily, my husband and I know people who live in both countries. This makes trips there a little more feasible. I would also love to go to Belize. It looks beautiful and a great place to try diving for the first time.
