It's hard to believe that 2013 is over and we're starting a new year! I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this month's currently.

*ignore the quality of the picture. I have a new MacBook and I haven't installed MS Office yet*

Listening: It's 8:00am here in Texas and the only sound I hear is my ceiling fan. I love it. Nice and quiet.

Loving: Pretty self explanatory. I'm just loving life in general and i'm grateful to see a new year.

Thinking: The women in my family are taking a short road trip this weekend to end our holiday break. Excited!

Wanting: Yeah, I know. I've been off for 2 weeks, but I could still use a few more days. We go right back to kids on January 6th. No PD days for us.

Needing: Yep! I need to get started on lesson plans and activity prep. Another reason why I want a few more days off.

Tradition: Each year, I host Christmas at my home for my family. We play a game that requires each participant to choose a holiday song from a cup and sing it a certain way. For instance, this years winner had to "rap" 'Silent Night'. We choose different styles for each song (opera, rap, humming, beat box) and hilarity ensues!

So that's my currently for now! I'm going to get a few more minutes of rest in before I get up and start moving around.

I hope that every one has a safe and happy new year and I can't wait to see what the new year brings for each and everyone of us!



  1. Christmas vacation is never long enough to fit everything in and enjoy ourselves. Have fun on your trip!

  2. I agree with Andrea, Christmas vaca could always be longer! I go back tomorrow and totally want a few more days. Enjoy your road trip! That sounds like a blast! Oh, and fun idea about the sing-off. I am totally going to remember that one.

  3. We are due to go back to school tomorrow! How terrible is that?! To make matters worse, there is a big snow storm coming tomorrow, too! Enjoy your last few days!

    What's Working This Year?

  4. I LOVE your tradition--how fun! I may have to steal that one to do with our family! :)
