Here we go:
I always type up my Currently when I just happen to be home and alone. The TV isn't on and the fan is going a million miles a minute so that is really the only thing I am listening to. We are H-O-T in Arizona right now but also way more humid than I care for. It is supposed to be a dry heat, but seriously, I'm sweating over here!
Routines! Hooray for routines in the classroom and routines at home! Summer can get me in a rut but with school starting everything is starting to run like a well oiled machine. Ok...honestly our machine is a little rusted and breaks down sometimes... but you know what I mean!
I have a student teacher this year and I did not do this on purpose but I have signed up for a lot of professional development this year. I turned in 6 requests for subs the other day! They aren't happening all at once, I'm just trying to get them early but I haven't taken that many days off in my whole teaching career combined! I'm excited about the learning opportunities I have but a little nervous to be gone so much. Glad I have my ST to steer the ship while I am gone!
Not kidding. My wants could go on for days. Today and everyday I just "want" to remember to be thankful for what I have. A funny husband, beautiful daughters, my parents who love me unconditionally, a job, and my health. That's all.
This could be considered a "want" but I really do need it! I have beautiful scalloped tables that I ordered myself about 8 years ago when I started teaching Kinder. They have left me and come back to me over the years.
Well because they are so awesome and scalloped you can only fit 6 kiddos at each table. Guess how many kids I have as of Tuesday? 25. I may only teach 1st grade but I can do the math....they aren't going to fit!
I added a small plain brown table to sit 4 extra kiddos at, but it is making my hair fall out just thinking about it.
Is that a need or a want? Hmmm.
<3: This last one is difficult. Farley said that many of us put ourselves at the bottom of the list so this is a "Love Yourself" spot. What will I do this month to love myself? Hmmmmm......this is the toughest currently question yet!
1. Watch volleyball/swim. Now this is all about my kids, but I truly love going to their events and watching. I will leave school and get to their home games/meets on time. I won't worry about what I am leaving behind, I'll just go!
2. I am a sloth in the summertime. Not. Kidding. I love the way I feel when I exercise, I love the way my clothes fit when I exercise, so why is it so difficult to get back on the wagon? I need to come up with 1 way to get moving everyday. That's my September goal :)
3. I love going out with just my husband. As my kids grow up and get busy little lives of their own I love the occasional date night!
That's September. Kuddos Farley for making me stretch my thinking this month and thank you for hosting such a great linky party. I think this is the one out there in teacher bloggyville that everyone participates in!
Happy Teaching! Heather
