Random thoughts and CURRENTLY

Sunday, November 4, 2012
So I'm looking ahead to a very busy week, 2 IEP's, one SST, 1 District  Common Core Co-hort  { try saying that 10 times fast }...LOL meeting all day so yes I need to leave sub plans, and a School Site Council meeting. YIKES, writing it all down kinda freaks me out a bit.  I'm sitting here being thankful though -- for so many things!  God is good!  I'm thankful I have a job, my family and myself are healthy.  My 10 year old mini van still runs - and yes I really like it. :o)
TPT has allowed me to pay up front for my daughter's entire year of club/travel volleyball.  A year ago I was making monthly payments and it was tough I will admit.  So grateful I can support my sweet girl.  She was selected to be on her middle school Varsity Volleyball All- Star team and they WON All- Stars!  So proud of her.
I was kinda busy this week and weekend I made 2 new Christmas units.  One is really fun cuz I did a play on words...I love when that happens.  It's called
Santa Cause and Effect - get it?!? :o)
And my other one is a super sized Christmas Pack
And lastly - Can you believe it --- my very first currently ever?
Have a great week everyone - hope mine goes by kinda fast!


  1. So glad I found you in the Currently. I'm your newest follower! Love the title of "Santa Cause and Effect" very witty. I do not envy your week- good luck and just be thankful that by Friday all of that will be off of your plate!

  2. Good luck with your busy week! Love your cute lil Santa Cause and Effect unit! Adorable. Lattes and Laughter

  3. I love I Can Only Imagine by MercyMe! I can never get through it without cryin' though!

    I also just posted my first currently ever! I can't believe I was missing out on all the fun!

    God certainly is good. :)

  7. I just found you through my first Currently! I can't believe Christmas is almost upon us. Loving your Christmas units! I won't start student teaching until August 2014, but I'll be saving a lot of information along the way!

  8. Sweet song. You will be featured one day. Just keep entering. :) Your new packets look precious.

  9. Holy moly, I read your currently and had to rub my eyes in disbelief about Tday, and then I had to double check because I just couldn't believe it!! It's right around the corner.

    Wouldn't being in the TPT newsletter be the best? I had an item featured once and it was unbelievable. Here's hoping you get in (and me, too!)

  10. I love Mercy Me's song "I Can Only Imagine." What hope it brings! Your packets look adorable. Once I finish up with my Master's (this summer), I hope to open up my own TpT store. I'm a little intimidated though. There is such great stuff out there, just like yours!!
