CURRENTLY: December

It's my blog, and I'll post twice in one day if I want to... :)

Wowsers! I can't believe it's December already!! What's freaking me out even more is that there are only 3 weeks until Winter Break! So much to do at school, so little time... We were pretty wired up for Thanksgiving, so I'm a little nervous about the Big Guy coming to town in 24 days. I may have to break down and get an Elf on the Shelf for my classroom.

Anyhoo... here's my Currently. Thanks to Farley for hosting every month :)
Listening: No Packers today (and no, I don't want to talk about the embarrassing game on Thanksgiving...), so the hubs is watching other teams today. I just found out it's the Bears vs. the Vikings. Do I have to cheer for a team? Can't I just cheer for the apocalypse?

Loving: I've been a little non-existent on the blog, but you can find me most days on Instagram. I LOVE all the support and encouraging words from my IG buddies! If you're on Instagram, you might want to follow me. Lots of people (including me) have been advertising flash freebies on IG only. Check it out!

Thinking: Who's pumped for the TPT sale tomorrow?? I just checked. I have 15 items in my cart, with about another 40 on my wish list. Oopsies...

Wanting: One more day off. Please? We had school Monday-Wednesday last week, so needless to say, I am a bit jealous of those of you who had the entire week off. 3 more weeks until Winter Break!!

Needing: To finish my report cards. They will go out to parents on Thursday. I am close to having all the grades put in, and then I get to do the comments. Oh joy... I know I write too much with comments, and I just can't bring myself to do canned comments. Yes I know I do this to myself. But as a parent, I want specific comments, so that's why I spend so much time on my students.

Christmas Tradition: We are usually all over the place from December 21-December 25th. Both sides of our family have extensive traditions that we must be a part of. But I staked my claim on Christmas morning for my own little family. We are home Christmas Eve night. My kids wake up in their own house and race downstairs to see what Santa brings! I make a special breakfast (usually baked french toast of some kind), and we hang out just the 4 of us. My kids are up at 6:00AM, so we can usually get to my parents' house by 10:00, which works out because my brother is usually still sleeping anyway!

OK, that's enough procrastination. Back to the report cards...

  2. We had to do the same thing with our Christmas morning. My parents get a little frustrated with that because they live out of state and never get to see us on Christmas day, but we wanted to set the standard early on - before we had kids.

    I need to get my shopping cart ready for the sale. Can't wait to hear all of the "cha-chings" tomorrow, although that reminds me I should make sure my phone is off when I'm at school then...

    Good luck getting all of those report cards done! I'm kind of grateful that our school requires us to use the canned comments. Makes my life easier and takes the pressure off of me.

  3. A few of yours are similar to mine!! I just want ONE MORE DAY. That isn't too much to ask, right?

    AND I cannot wait to buy all of my shopping cart tomorrow during the sale.
