Currently…Last, As Usual!

I’m linking up with Farley for the June Currently Link-Up!  It has been forever since I have posted, but I always love this link-up!


Listening – Weather has been crazy in NY this year.  We had many very hot days and it was getting really dry. Now there is a lot of rain and flooding in certain areas.  I love listening to the rain on our metal roof!  It is so comforting!  I am also into a 21 Jump Street marathon!  I remember it being on when I was a kid, but it was not exactly my kind of show.  It is corny and silly, but I am enjoying watching this  80’s throw-back!  Next up is Quantum Leap!

Loving – I have been into Bloggers and YouTubers that focus on the simple life.  Recently, there have been a few book clubs on the KonMarie Method and Loving the Home You Have.  They have inspired me to stop thinking about what I don’t have and think about the home that I do have.  There is nothing as nice as being comfortable in your own home.  I am enjoying it more and more, and am looking forward to those summer days when I can stay home allllll day!


Thinking – Yikes!  We have 2 1/2 more weeks of school and two days to pack our rooms.  Aaaannnnddd I may be moving classrooms again.  My choice this time!  One of my colleagues is retiring and she has an amazing room.  Hopefully I got dibs on it!  I am also taking a summer course – which means 14 weeks of content in 7 weeks – during the busiest season for teachers.  I did it last year, but am still recovering from the burnout.  Perhaps the fact that it is pass/fail and I did a lot of prep work will help!

Wanting – I am super into good-old-fashioned ice cream sandwiches lately!  I try not to eat dairy base ice cream, but these little guys are just sucking me in!  I have also been having a tough time with just wanting to stay home (I feel like one of the kids!)  Work is just such a rat race day-after-day and the stress is crazy.  Compared to my uber-zen house, the contrast is making me want to hang at home more and more.

Needing – I have been on a purging kick.  Not quite on the level of KonMarie, but getting there.  I have been purging clothes, books, personal teaching materials.  I am planning to have at least one gigantic yard sale this summer to see what I can clear out!  The space is so freeing!

Summer Lovin’ – Three weeks and I am free!  I will be doing some curriculum writing and working on my comprehensive exams this summer, but I am so looking forward to the freedom of time and the lower pace.  Can’t wait!!!

Hopefully I can get blogging again – I miss it, but my time is so limited right now.  Hope to be back soon!


  1. Have you ever tried the mini ice cream sandwiches? They are so great for satisfying your craving without having something so big!

    Sounds like you have SUCH a busy summer planned! Hope the last bit of your year goes smoothly and you get plenty of time to relax this summer, too!

  2. Wow it sounds like you have a lot going on. Remember to take at least one day each week for your self. Summer is meant to relax and recharge us. Good luck with the cleaning out of stuff. I am the worst at that. I hold on to things for years.
