Currently: July

It's hard to believe it is July tomorrow!!  Before you know it, we will be back in school!!!

Big Brother is one of my guilty pleasures to watch in the summer time!!!  I watch it with my youngest daughter; we get a good laugh over it.  Anyone else watch it?

Our state is fully implementing the Common Core standards this year.  I have had several trainings and workshops that revolve around them and Curriculum Maps.  I was also lucky enough to be able to attend a 3 day workshop to work on Social Studies lesson plans.  So, I have a good headstart on my curriculum plans - at least by units.  

I really need to be getting to bed soon.  I have a few meetings to attend tomorrow - one for social studies text book adoption, and the other one concerning Standards-based report cards.  I want to make sure my brain is fully functional tomorrow.  

With the weather changing constantly, I have been getting sinus headaches like crazy.  I have had a doozy today.  Sleep usually helps, so I will take my meds and hit the sack!!!

I have been looking around here and cringing!!!  This place is a mess.  I am definitely going to have to take some time to get the house cleaned and organized so that I am not stressing about it. 

My tip:  Take some time for yourself.  If you don't worry about you, no one else will.  I have a bad habit ot worrying about what I need to do for others, unfortunately the stress eventually catches up with you.  I know that by the end of the school year that I was figuring this out the hard way.  I have vowed to take some time to relax this summer!!!  I want to be ready to go when the new school year rolls around!!

Wanna share your currently with others, be sure to link up with Farley at Oh' Boy Fourth Grade.

Also, don't forget that Google Reader is dead after today!!!  I chose to use Bloglovin' as the replacement.  You can follow me by clicking on the link in my sidebar!!  


  1. My needing was the same thing. I need to get the house cleaned and organized as well. Sounds like you've been busy so far this summer.

  2. I found your blog through Farley's Currently.
    Ha ha! I was on a cleaning, purging, organizing mission the first week of vacation as well! It feels SO good to clean and purge all that extra "stuff". I agree that we need to take more care of ourselves. Blogging was new to me last year, as was many changes as school with curriculum/schedules/etc. I spend WAY too much time on the computer. My husband really missed the time we would spend together at night (watching tv, of course ;). Enjoy the rest of your summer!

  3. I'm your newest follower, thanks to the Currently linky. I only listen to TV shows, too. There's not enough time in the day to actually sit down and watch something! ;)
