August Currently

Yes, I realize that August is halfway over, the beginning of the month was a bit of a whirlwind for me.  Just because I’ve been super busy, that doesn’t mean that I want to miss out on a currently! Here’s mine for August, you can check out the others at Oh Boy 4th Grade.

Listening: It never fails, my husband chooses a show to watch and then promptly falls asleep on the couch and I end up listening to a show about cars that I neither understand nor care about.  It’s probably better this way, when I’m not paying attention to the show I get a lot more work done!

Loving: I started my obsession with Amazon Prime Instant Video last summer, but I now have a full blown addiction because I can stream it on the smart tv.  I am without a doubt a binge-watcher.  Every single episode of Teen Mom 2, yup, I’ve seen them.  Every season of Dance Moms, seen those too.  The Hunger Games 25 million times, you bet.  I need background noise when I work and this is my favorite thing.

Thinking: I used to be the queen of laundry, I’d devote my entire Sunday to washing, folding, and putting away all of our laundry.  Lately, not so much.  Now I’m lucky if I get it all done in one day, let alone remember to take it out of the dryer.  I blame it on the fact that my washer and dryer are in the basement, but it could also be because I am way to busy to care about laundry.  On the other hand, it may also be because I have so many clothes that I don’t need the ones that are dirty – which probably means I have too many clothes… but we won’t go there.

Wanting: I am exhausted.  I’ve had a couple of crazy weeks, and I really thought that I’d caught up on my sleep over the weekend, but clearly I can’t recover as fast as I used to.  I keep telling myself I’ll go to bed after I finish this one more thing. Then I think of something else that needs to get done tonight.  This girl needs a couple of days to catch up on her to do list AND her sleep.

Needing: Speaking of to do lists, I really need to make one. I’m getting to that point were I have so many thoughts and tasks floating around in my head that I’m beginning to feel like I’m drowning.  I need to write it all down before I go to bed or else all of these thoughts will never let me sleep. So there it is, one more thing to do before bed.

1st day: My school is year round (which is probably why I’m feeling so burnt out at the moment) so we don’t have an official “first day”.  We will be saying goodbye to the kiddos that go to kindergarten and transitioning classrooms though, and all of that will start to happen on the 18th, so next Monday.

Thanks for playing along with my currently’s, I love love love sharing this little slice of my life with all of you!
