It's the start of a new year, the start of a new month so that means it is time to link up with Farely at Oh Boy Fourth Grade for a new currently.
I love reading what everyone is up seems like many of us are doing the same things..lounging in our pjs, relaxing and enjoying family time.

So, here's mine.
Listening- the kids are with their dad so it is really quiet here.  Oh how I adore my children, but a day of quiet is a blessing too.
Loving that we had 2 full weeks of vacation (plus an extra day because we had a snow day to kick it off)  I really needed this time to reboot.
Thinking about lesson plans.  After blog hopping yesterday I am getting the itch to put together some new lessons.  I want to go back with as much put together as I can so I don't feel like I'm drowning half-way through January.
Wanting to stay in my warm jammies and blanket- Man is it freezing here!  We are having extremely cold temperatures (-17 for tomorrow) and I am not a fan!!!
Needing to straighten the house and organize.  My oldest daughter was home from college so we had to do some shuffling of space. Now I need to regroup and finish putting away the Christmas things.
Memory- the best memory of this Christmas was a visit from my brother and his family.  It was a complete surprise!  They haven't been home in almost 5 years so it was especially wonderful to see them all. He and my dad made the arrangements and kept is a surprise until they walked in on the Friday night before Christmas.  It was awesome!
Well, that's my currently.  Now I think I'll turn up some tunes (nobody is here to tell me to turn it down or harass me for my listening choices haha), get dressed and get busy- doing what I'm not exactly sure, but I'm sure I can figure out something. Smiles to all!


  1. What an amazing surprise! It's so hard to get the family together during the holidays! Enjoy your quiet time! I know how precious it it!

  2. What a sweet Christmas surprise! I love every minute I can get when my sisters and I are together.

    Enjoy your quiet house today! Soak up every minute - you know the noise will be back in full force once we're all back at work!! :)
