February Currently!

This month has flown for me. I'm not sure why, it just seems like it has....which mean's Farley's Currently!

Listening: I'm loving a weekend that I can catch up on all the shows I have stored on the DVR. Necessary Roughness, How I Met Your Mother, and a few others are on the dock for tonight.

Loving: I love opportunities to get together with friends, the Super Bowl is a great opportunity to do that. Wild game (goose) as well as ribs, "man dip", and a few other favorites are being prepared for the big event.

Thinking: Tomorrow I'm going in for a haircut something I haven't done in months... since the day after our wedding. Definitely in need of a change in the hair-do department.

Wanting: Spring! It was 75* on Monday, snow on Wednesday, and so cold I had frost on the inside of my front door this morning. Kansas temperatures can vary so often. I'm just ready for an even keel on temperatures--hopefully without extremes.

Needing: Sleep or a personal assistant, preferably both! Parent teacher conferences are in a couple of weeks, graduate classes are up and going, several IEP meetings this month, just so much to do and not enough time.

Pet Peeves: There are several...but with snow on the ground, somehow the snow doesn't always come completely off the bottom of my husband's boots... so there are times... like tonight.. when I innocently walk from the bedroom to the living room. When all of a sudden, my sock only clad feet find a small puddle of water left by melted snow, and I just hate that feeling of wearing a wet sock. It's weird, but I just don't like it. Especially, when there are rugs by the doors for shoes to go on (especially when there is snow/rain/mud).

Hmmm... well that's it for now. I'm off to continue watch the missed shows of the week, gear up for a full and fun weekend. Hope you all enjoy your weekend too!


  1. Good pet peeve! I hate when my socks get wet, too!!!!

    I am also ready for spring...I'm done with winter. (Wish it were that easy!)

    You Might Be a FIrst Grader...

  2. LOL! As I read everybody's pet peeve, I think, "Oohh, yeah, that's mine too!" I sooo need a haircut too. The problem is, I live in Florida and my hairdresser is in Ohio. I haven't found one I like down here, lol! So, everytime we go back home to visit, I have to get a haircut (usually only once a year)!

    1. Well, mine is cut and much different than before, but I'm lovin' it. I wonder how many teachers/students ask who I am if they see me from behind come Monday, haha!

  3. I would love a 75 degree day!! We can't get over 0 here! Spring can come anytime now!

  4. I definitely agree with the sleep and warmer weather! We had a couple nicer days, but it cooled right down again.

  5. Hi there!
    It's nice to find another 5th grade teacher - us upper elementary bloggers need to stick together :)

    I LOVE your blog design and title - too cute!

    Wet socks are the worst - such an icky feeling.

    Enjoy your fun-filled weekend :)

    Joy in the Journey

    1. Thank you so much for the complement! I figure if I'm from Kansas and can't beat that Oz references, I might as well embrace them! :)

  6. I love Necessary Roughness! Can't wait to watch it tomorrow! I mentioned on my Currently that I needed a personal assistant too! Enjoy your weekend!


  7. Thanks for the haircut reminder! I only remember I need one at 6:30 in the morning when I'm getting ready for school. Not a good time to get an appointment!

    My mother is from Kansas, and that's where I was born. Have a soft spot for all things Oz. Glad I found you through Currently!

    I Teach. What's Your Super Power?

    1. What a small world! Don't you just love how Currently's can bring so many bloggers together? Such fun! :)

  8. Wet socks are one of my pet peeves as well! I would have never thought to write it though! Good luck with IEP season. Mine is in full gear as well!

    We are ALL Special!

    1. The paperwork... it never ends. Ever!! Haunts me in my dreams some days, haha!

  9. I can't wait for warmer weather! I like winter but LOVE LOVE summer!! Newest follower here!!

  10. I had get-togethers with friends in my Currently, too! I am on an IEP committee for the first time ever this week...I'm a little nervous- good luck with your season!

    1. Don't be too nervous. {Easier said than done.} The first IEP I had to lead was within the first 10 days of school this year, with a ton of related service personnel, and my supervisor. Talk about a nervous wreck! But, it wasn't that bad, I survived, and and it gave me a huge boost in confidence once I figured out I was still alive, haha! As long as you've got your student's best interests in mind, and paperwork/supporting documents organized and ready to go, you'll be great!

  11. Hi! Welcome to the blogging world. I am your 25th follower.
    Hopefully, you will get some sleep this weekend, but it is probably not in the cards for tomorrow's super bowl evening.
    Have fun!

    1. Thank you for the welcome, it's been a fun experience so far! :) Your right about the sleep part it didn't happen today, and most likely won't happen tomorrow...guess there is always next weekend, haha!
