Currently in April

OMG!  I have a chance of being first in the Fabulous Farley's Currently so I am going to link up and then come back and write more. BRB!

OK, so I wasn't first but I am second!!!! That's a new record!  WOOHOO (It's the little things in life, folks).   The terrific Miss T from Journey of a Substitute Teacher beat me to it and is first....she's a sweety so I guess I can live without being first. 

Listening:  I am listening to the Apprentice but I wish I was listening to the rain.  We need rain here in San Antonio!  I could also go for some cooler weather but it hasn't been too bad.

Loving: All staff members at my school can wear jeans the whole week because we have STAAR testing on Tuesday and Wednesday! That is the absolute ONLY thing I like about state testing.

Thinking:  Report cards are due tomorrow and I still need to finish up a few more comments.... why am I blogging instead of doing what I should....story of my life peeps! 

Wanting: My students are taking the writing STAAR tests on Tuesday and Wednesday.  I want them all to pass. Not necessarily for me but for their own self-esteem and to show them that hard work pays off.

Needing: I said coffee but I am really needing to get back to report cards!!!!!!!!

Advice: Society as a whole is getting so serious!  I think we all should stop being so serious and take the time to smell the roses (or the chocolate, it smells better) and laugh your boo-tay off!  I love to laugh! I love to make others laugh! And I especially love to see others laugh!

    1. Thanks Caitlin! Normally we can't wear jeans but 4th and 5th graders are taking the firsts of their state tests this week and as a treat our principal lets us wear jeans.

    1. Number two is awesome but its still not number one! Did you ever think that you would have bloggers stopping everything to be number one on your Currently linky? Good luck to your kiddos too!

  6. Ha! I love that you came back to add more after you linked up! I have a love hate with Apprentice, but only because of Omarosa. She's a bit calculated! After you finish report cards, it should be a great week! Jeans will be wonderful.

  9. 1) Jealous about your jeans week, but STAAR is awful so you deserve it!
    2) GOOD LUCK tomorrow! At least then the writing portion of STAAR will be over!
