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!
