January Currently

I have been reading everyone's Currently posts, so I decided to head over to Oh Boy Fourth Grade... to join in on all of the fun!


Listening to my daughter sing and dance
I have a four-year old daughter who wakes up singing and dancing. All throughout the day, she has been singing, skipping, dancing, etc. I just wish I had her energy!

Loving getting to sleep in a couple more days
Oh, how I have been lazy this break! But I think I must have been exhausted because I have never been this lazy on a break before...ever! I have also enjoyed staying in my pajamas or athletic clothes most of the day. Don't let the athletic clothes fool you- I have just simply been wearing them to try to motivate myself not to be so lazy!

Thinking about all of the essays I need to grade before Monday
Umm...I need to get busy is all I can say. It is Friday, and I have over 100 essays to grade and return when we go back. I need the grading fairy to visit my school bag, grade those papers, and help me out! Seriously, I will begin grading them tomorrow.

Wanting a laptop
I do not own a laptop, iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, etc. It is not that I don't love technology...I do! I just don't own any of those right now. I have a desktop PC that has logged many hours. I would love a laptop to be able to sit on the couch and work while my husband watches football or my daughter watches cartoons. This, hopefully, is coming in the very near future!

Needing to organize my home office
I wrote a post earlier today (before reading everyone's Currently, which prompted me to create a second post for today) about how every year I resolve to do many things. Well, it is time to organize my home office. I know my husband cringes every time he walks into it because he likes everything neat and orderly. Let me tell you, my home office is neither! There are papers, books stacked everywhere, reminders posted here and there, supplies out because I have not bought proper storage for them. I am making this one of my January goals...get that office organized!

One Little Word
Blessed! Yes, I am blessed beyond measure. I have a wonderful husband, a spunky daughter, a supportive family, great friends, a stable job, and all of the needs in my life are fulfilled. God has blessed me with so much!

  2. Hi Andrea - I found your blog from the comments at Christina's etiquette post and I've added you to my blog roll. I hope that you were able to plow through those 100 essays with joy and happiness with some time leftover to dance with your daughter.

    Happy new year!

  4. Hi Andrea! I found you from the Currently link up. It's my first time linking up. I have the same organization problem! My desk at school looks like a bomb hit it. Every year I resolve to work on it, and I'm still a mess. I blame it on my creative mind. :) Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you for visiting and following my blog! I know what you mean about it staying in the car. Sometimes I wonder why I even bring it home. :) However, if I didn't bring it, I would find some free time and not have anything to work on. Hope your weekend is wonderful!
