Currently March--a little late

I'm a little late for the party...shocking, I know, since I am such an All-Star blogger and all...but better late than never! :) 

Listening: I love me some Downton but I am like 4 weeks behind so I have to catch up! 
Loving: Need I say more? Everyone loves a good Spring Break
Thinking: On the Tuesday we get back from Spring Break, we have "learning walks". That means multiple principals from across the district will be coming into our classrooms to judge observe us and to see how well we are achieving campus and district goals. Goody. This means I have to go visit my classroom and get some things in order before all my visitors come. 
Wanting: I've been working on redecorating our bedroom (gold, black and turquoise!) using old screen doors from my great-grandmother's house. I need to finish painting the doors and get all my decorations up so I can be done with this project! 
Needing:  PTL it's Spring Break so I can get some real relaxing and primping done!! 
Plans: My little guy had surgery yesterday to get tubes put in...hopefully these pesky ear infections are a thing of the past. The surgery went well and we are just relaxing and recovering this week. :) 

We are also going to go visit Jackson's great grandparents and some of my aunts and uncles in Texarkana for a few days just to get away! I'm hoping for some nice weather...Texas has been insanely crazy these past few weeks. 

So we already had "ice" days and then last Friday, during district assessments (which carry a lot of weight),  it starts SNOWING. and it snowed hard for several HOURS..while our students gazed longingly out our blind-less windows. 

THEN, on Wednesday, overnight, we got 6 inches of snow, again. 6 inches! That's insane for Texas, especially on March 1st! 

So we had another snow day on Thursday ...and then J had surgery Friday so I'm technically on my 3rd day of Spring Break! Hoping for better weather and more regular posting soon, ya'll. Have a good weekend! 


  1. I cannot imagine having several principals coming into my room the second day back from Spring Break! WOW! I never understood why the administration thinks that a few minutes in someone's classroom can give them a valid picture of what happens in that room. I guess that is why they get the big bucks, huh? LOL!

    I would love to see some pics of the decorations with the doors...I love that kind of stuff!

  2. Greetings from the Currently link-up. Love Downton Abbey! It was so good this time around. I'm on spring break as well. Have fun and enjoy!!

  3. Awww...hope your little one is on the mend soon! One of my boys had tubes put in, and it really did the trick!
