Currently September?

Linking up with Farley again this month for Currently. September? What?? Where did my summer go?

Listening.. I snuck away from a fun pool party / picnic to get out of the heat for a minute

Loving... I have a student teacher and she is awesome. She jumped right in on day 1 and it is so amazing to have extra hands, eyes, and ears the first week of school!!

Thinking... My mom passed away from cancer this past April and I think about my dad all the time. They were married for 44 years and on days like today (holidays) I worry about him being alone. I hope he can move down to Texas soon..

Wanting... We moved out of our house this Friday but can't move into a next one until this coming Saturday. I am dreading the whole unpacking thing. ugh.

Needing... We love our new house. It is in a great neighborhood and has an amazing pool (swoon) but it is older and needs some work. I am the kind of person who wants everything to be done RIGHT NOW... so I am going to need to channel my inner zen and be okay with very slow progress.

3 trips.... I have always wanted to see every.single.inch of Italy and who wouldn't want to go to Greece and Hawaii?

Enjoy your week!!


  1. I can totally relate to your Need! I'm one of those who needs to unpack and decorate EVERYTHING before I can sleep. We are the kind who work ourselves into exhaustion and end up with colds that force us to rest, no? ;)

  2. I am so sorry about your mom. :( Losing a loved one is so hard. Yay! for great student teachers. It is so great to have a student teacher at the beginning of the year IF they are good because IF they are bad (shudder)... Have a great year and good luck on your house!!

  3. So sorry to hear about your mom. My dad is elderly and sometimes I wonder when this will happen.
    Congrats on a great student teacher - it always makes the year so much fun.
    I just found your blog through Farley's linkup. Your blog looks great BTW.
