Currently, I'm in Love

Happy February!
Today was our 100th day of school, too!

I only accomplished half of what I had planned for today. Oops! I even ran out of time to do four of my students' 100 day hats. I told them we'd have to make them on Monday. One of the kids said they would add one extra dot for 101 zeros. So cute!

Here's my CURRENTLY for February:

Obviously, I'm REALLY behind on the Bachelor if I'm finally getting to watch Monday's episode tonight. It has been a fun season, I only wish Sean wasn't so darn nice to people. Great in real life, but kinda boring for television. This is a fake show, right? I'd like him to get fake pissed-off or something and kick a girl out of the house.

My kiddos in First and Kindergarten have been soooo wound up. I'm pulling out end of the year tricks to get them back and focused. They are learning, though. Just by screaming...

As an inclusion teacher this year, I am learning a lot about the teacher I was with a gen-ed class and the teacher I am now. There are some days (okay, a bunch of days) that I will not look like that wonderfully effective teacher I watch on teacher videos. But that is okay because despite the craziness I am making a difference. I wouldn't have believed it if I haven't been living it. However, I AM TIRED! Girlfriend needs a spa day - STAT.

My pet peeves are pretty self-explanatory. If you can't return your shopping cart because it is too far away, then start parking next to the cart return. There, I just solved your laziness problem. Some stores have cart returns all over the parking lot. Which does not include in-between parking spots, in front of my car, or in the walk ways.

Alright, for the turn signal pet peeve you have to understand that I live in south Florida where many retired, snow birds, and elderly people reside. This time of year is especially crowded and not so safe on the road ways. But, come on, people if you are planning on switching lanes, taking a left, or waiting for a parking spot, then turn on your blinker. That tells the other drivers what your intentions are. I'm not a mind reader and I'd like to live, so please use the signals! (and remember to turn them off, too!)

And the fake girls was just a funny because I'm watching the Bachelor. I'm just glad that 22 other women weren't after my man.

That's all for now!
I hope to blog again soon... I'd like to leave my little footprint in the blogging world a bit more often then I have been, but what can I say - I'm TIRED! :)


  1. I found you through Farley's currently! Happy 100th day of school! Next time I am at the grocery store, I'll return an extra cart in your honor! Hehehe

  2. It was our 100th day of school today too! Happy 100th day to you!

  3. OMG! Do you live where I live? Turn signals are just something many 'forget' about, since mind reading was invented :) It drives me bonkers!

  5. I love reading your blog, yours was one of the first I found. I'm also in FL, St. Pete, and we, too, have some crazy drivers. ;) Hang in there, I know you're learning a lot in your inclusion classroom.

  6. I'm so sorry there is not even a chance for a snow day where you are. Sometimes a random day off (with no sub plans required) is just what the doctor ordered. Since that's not going to be happening any time soon down in sunny FL, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a great 101st Day of School for you.


  7. shopping carts bug the heck out of me too... LAZY LAZY LAZY... it really bugs my hubs even more... which I kinda get a kick out of!!! don't tell him :)

  10. I loved your comment about the Girl Scout Cookie! I definitely think so... The last time I had a box, they disappeared while I was reading a book. Hmmm.

  11. Oh, boy, I get the snow bird issues! You have to live in South Florida to fully appreicate how bad it can be!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
