Currently . . .

I love reading the monthly Currently link-up hosted by Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade.  Why?  Mostly because I love getting to know the person behind the blog.  So this month I decided to jump in and participate!  So here it goes . . .

Listening - We recently did a little work on our backyard and I sure am enjoying this as my morning work space.  Loving my swinging pallet lounger and so does Sprite.  It gets too hot in the afternoon here in Texas, but the mornings are so nice (at least so far - unusual for being July - but I'll take it!)

Loving - my new keyboard stickers.  I just like how fun and  happy they are.  It truly makes me smile to see them when I am working.  I found them on easy and there are lots of different designs and styles available.  If you like these you can find them by clicking the picture below!

Thinking - about all the things I need to do to get ready for Vegas.  I am so excited to be going to Vegas to attend the Teachers Pay Teachers conference.  I am looking forward to learning, meeting others and collaborating.  But it's scary too.  I am going alone and suddenly wonder if there will be anyone to talk to?  Crazy right - it's Vegas and it is being taken over by teachers!  Of course there will be people to talk to!  I just keep telling myself that!  For someone who can be so extroverted in the classroom, I can be just the opposite when around people I don't know.  But I am going to push myself out of my comfort zone, get out there, meet new people (many of whom I feel like I know because of blogs and social media - so its sorta weird meeting them in person), and have fun!  If you are going to be in Vegas make sure and let me know.  I would love to get a chance to meet you.  Before I get there I've got a ton to do!!!!  Time to put them in writing and start crossing them off!

Wanting - my mental to do list to be done!  See Above!  OK - so I'd love all the laundry to be folded, hung and put away, the house to be picked up a tad (being home everyday during the summer has its perks, but constantly cleaning is not one of them), the blog posts to be written, the conference notebook to be printed out and bound, the clothes to be packed, well - you get the idea.

Needing - to get my wanting list done.  So typing this post gave me a great start on my to do list.  It's time to get busy and start.  I will make a list and complete the things on the list.  And if I do something not on the list I will add it to the list so I can cross it off!  (Please tell me I'm not the only one that does that!)  See I have this slight issue, I start working on one thing, which leads me to something else not on the list, which leads to something else, and then something else.  Before you know it I've done 5 things not on the list and haven't finished what I originally started.  Please tell me I'm not the only one that does this too!

All Star - Procrastinator!  This should not be a surprise based on my answers above.  I'm really good at procrastinating - like All Star Good!  I guess it's a good thing I work well under pressure.

Well, hopefully you learned a little about me - the person behind the blog.  I'd love to learn more about you too.  Head over to the Currently Linky and link yourself up!
