It's been a crazy busy last couple of days and none of it even involved my classroom/school stuff! I spent the last couple of days working in Manhattan (the one in Kansas) for a property management company. Easy work, but boy I was exhausted after 2 looooong days of work! 

Today I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this month's Currently. I've had fun reading what other bloggers are currently up to, so I wanted to join the party.

Listening to Reba on the TV. I didn't really want to sit in silence while I blogged, but I'm not really watching it.

 Loving my new blog design! I was really hating everything about my old design and was dying to change it. I got some awesome help over at The Cutest Blog on the Block. Spent waaay too much time messing with things, but I think I'm satisfied..... for now at least :)

Thinking I really need to head over to my classroom after I'm done with this. I have so much to do and am feeling so behind. 

Wanting something delicious for lunch. All I've had today is a cup of coffee, and my stomach is yelling at me to put some food inside it. I know I shouldn't, but I'm craving some french fries. I think I'm always craving french fries.

Needing to clean this house. I don't even want to go into detail on the mess!

Back to School Must Haves!
1 - I love the plastic crates that they sell at Target and Wal-Mart for real cheap in all different colors. They're definitely going to help me stay organized this year.
2 - I really want one of those fancy teacher planners, but I just don't think it's in my budget right now with everything else I have to buy. I think it's best just to keep it all in a nice binder for my first year.
3 - Post-it notes are my weakness. I put them all over my lesson plans to remind me of important things to mention/do. I also have the tendency to make a hundred to-do lists every week.

Okay, enough procrastinating for today. Time for some lunch and then hard work in the classroom. Making progress!
