I {heart} Currently!

Happy February!  Thank you for coming and checking out my Currently from
Let's roll...

LOVING - Yes...I do live in Atlanta.  Yes we did get only about an inch or two of snow.  Yes that two inches wrecked havoc on our poor Southern city.  I was a lucky one who did not get trapped by snow and ice on the highway...just trapped at home for two days.  But as the true Southern girl I am, who is a nervous nelly driving in that kind of weather, I really do not enjoy driving a mile in the snow!  I'm so glad it is melting--especially from my little driveway.

THINKING - While I did not enjoy the snow, a 3-day week was pretty nice!  Two days on, two days off, and one day on is a doable schedule!  Our surprise mini-break has an unfortunate turn--no break off school until Spring Break in April...ugh!  It will be a long two months!

WANTING - There is a new workout studio opening close to me called Pure Barre.  Has anyone heard of this?   What do you think?  As a former ballet dancer, I'm intrigued. :)

NEEDING - Be forewarned...here comes a whine...I really need my last formal observation to be completed.  Not so I can back off on my teaching at all...but you know what kind of stress that leaves hanging over your head.  Will you be defined as Needs Improvement, Proficient, or Exemplary??  I gotta know!

2 TRUTHS AND A FIB - What do you think?  What is the truth?  What is a fib?
1.  True - My original career plan was to be an entertainment journalist!  In college, I wanted to report on the stars in Hollywood...then there was a stop in law land...and finally after graduation I caught the teaching bug.
2.  False - I don't think all of the running time of my entire life would equal a marathon!  I'm still on my weight loss journey-56 pounds lost now-but I'm not that intense!  I did just do my first 5K last weekend...I walked it and it took me under an hour!  But this time last year, I wouldn't have dreamed of doing that! 
3.  True - I teach at the elementary school I attended!  It is fun to see the children of my classmates now starting at the school.  I also feel committed to keep up the strong academic tradition of the community that I grew up in for a new generation of students.


  1. You are lucky you get to keep your spring break! Our snow days wiped ours out. :(

  2. Wow, a three-day week because of snow! Where I am in Australia we never see snow in the city… and are currently in the middle of a heatwave! Good luck with your last formal observation - I hope it comes soon for you so you don't need to worry about it! Sometimes it's nice just to have those things over and done with.

  3. I love Les Mis. It's great music and a beautiful story.

  4. I <3 Les Mis. We are so similar!! I studied journalism and public relations in college. I wanted to be an anchor woman ! Ok, so here's the deal with PB: it's an isometric workout and it incorporates some yoga moves but mostly ballet warmup techniques.

  7. I live in NC and we only went to school for one day this week! It has been really nice having a break!! I'm a new blogger, and my blog is still new! Have a nice week at work!

  8. I totally understanding wanting to get your formal observation "over with." I don't do anything different during my observation than what I would do during a "normal" lesson, but the anxiety it gives me to have an admin member in there, judging me for everything I say and do just freaks. me. OUT! Last year, I got so nervous that I got sick in the bathroom before AND after the observation! {Ridiculous, I know. Feel free to make fun of me.} Anyway, I totally just meant to commiserate with you instead of grossing you out. haha. :)

    By the way: This is my first time on your blog, and I have to say: it is adorable! I can't wait to look around some more. :)
