July Currently!

It's July 1st! (How did that happen??) Time for another Currently with Farley!

Listening: My girls are watching Sanjay and Craig on Nick and it is by far the most annoying show I've ever had to listen to. I'm tolerating it since we were in West Virginia from Thursday - Saturday and they endured two 9 hour car rides!

Loving: On Monday afternoon, we're heading up to our Happy Place (ie our cabin) for just about a month! I have two days next week that I have to be home for dentist and doctor appointments but other than that, I'm not planning to be away from there. Relaxation here I come!

Thinking: I reeeeallllly need to get started on the unit plan I am writing for Kids Food Basket, a local organization in our area that provides sack suppers for kids who may not eat at night due to high poverty. I'm writing the unit on Dietary/Nutrition information to be put up at! It'll be based on the My Plate diet standards.

Wanting: Well Thursday came and went with no placement email. At this point I don't care what it is, I just want to know. Ugh!

Needing: I really need to organize my home office before I head out of town for a month! I have a lot of stuff piled up since I had to bring my entire classroom home. I've been able to ignore it mostly because I haven't been up there much....alas I will not be able to stand leaving it like that while I'm gone!

Tips, Tricks or Hints: I firmly believe if you are honest and truthful in what your blog is (and isn't!) about, followers will come. I don't gloss over reality whatsoever on this blog and I can't even count the number of compliments and "thank you" emails I get for that. I think I hear so much BS involved in my day-to-day dealings as a teacher that I refuse to be the person that lies too.

    1. They are killing me, Kim! I even called yesterday because this is such B.S. and they are like "well we can't give you a definite timeline"...even though they already did and it passed. Blah!
