August Currently

Hey All,

Twice in two months! Woo hoo (baby steps, people)!

I promise that I have the best intentions of being a better blogger once I have some time to get some school schtuff schtarted. ;)

Without further adieu, let's get to this month's currently:

Listening: So the dog is no longer wagging his tail (he was trying to get me to rub his tummy, the big suck, but it seems he gave up! Other than that, it's pretty quiet in the house. Hubs and I are just sitting. Usually I have the TV on but I'm content.

Loving: I agreed (when summer was just a distant dream) to work for my mom for two weeks when one of her employees went on holidays. Something came up, and two weeks turned into 3 and a bit. I am so excited to be almost done (6 more days, people!) so that I can enjoy a bit of time to myself before I can get back into my room and start full-on school mode.

Thinking: I really did want to have a bunch of stuff done and be super productive this summer. We have been productive, but more so in fixing some stuff up around the house etc. and not so much on the school front.

Wanting: So I am a total nerd and have been super jealous of all the classroom pics that I've been seeing on Instagram (side note: follow me @applesowlsmochas)... I totally wish that I could get some things done in my room, too! I've been thinking a lot about how I want to set things up, I'd like to see if things will actually fit where I want to put them!

Needing: So I was totally trying to turn a new leaf when it comes to preparedness...and I printed a bunch of new decor things at the end of the year so that I could use school ink instead of home ink. I know that I brought them home (I took them out once in an almost attempt to cut some), but they are nowhere to be found. Sigh. I hope that they didn't make it into the recycle bin!

And, lastly, our 1st day: The school will be open officially starting on August 18 for teachers to come in and organize, etc. Then our first day is the day after Labour Day--Sept. 2 (Divisional PD day), Sept. 3 is a school-based admin day, and Sept. 4 is the first day with kidlets!

Anyway, if you've made it this far, thanks for reading! Have a great day!


  1. I AM SO JEALOUS! Sept 2nd?!?!?! NICE…
    I have a LONG list to complete. Haven't touched a thing….We get access to our rooms on Monday and it's open house/find your way day on Aug 14th. Teacher have to officially report on Aug 18th. But I totally feel you, haven't touched school stuff.
    Enjoy the rest of break!

    1. To be fair, your summer probably starts way before mine! Our last day is the end of June...this past year that was the 28th! Hopefully we will both get some motivation...pretty soon we won't have a choice! :)

      Thanks for visiting!


  2. Classroom setup is my favorite thing in the world. If it were possible, I would love to do a side business where I come in and do this for the teachers that hate it. Organizing, bulletin boards... all of it. This is why I need my own classroom!

    1. I know, right? I always think of that e-card that is floating all over Pinterest that says, "Don't you get it? If I make my classroom super cute and organized, then the rest of my year will go smoothly!" This is my first job where someone else's stuff is not everywhere and cluttering things up. I'm so excited! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you on the job front!

      Thanks for stopping by!
