January Currently

A big thanks to Farley for creating Currently and keeping it alive!

Listening…. Ahhhh, it is close to midnight and I do not want to let go of Saturday.

Loving…. In little bits here and there over the break, I worked on report cards.
They were due yesterday, by the end of our first day back at school.
Thankfully, it was a work day! 

Thinking…. The better part of this evening was spent in reading.
When the tears began to silently stream down my cheeks,
I snuck into the kitchen with the computer to finish reading 
"The Matchmaker", without waking my husband.
I'm so glad that I chose this to be my first read of 2015; the book is excellent!

Wanting…. goes along with Needing….and Maybe.

Yes…. I'm going back to school!

I'm wondering if I should have taken one class, not two, this semester.
I'd love to hear your ideas and suggestions for successfully making it through 
grad school while teaching full time and managing life :-)!

I wish…. Doesn't every kindergarten teacher have a book in her/his heart?
Maybe I will someday write books for the children I currently teach-
books in which they see themselves and their own 
unique, beautiful, strong, special stories.

Happy New Year!


  1. I started grad school last fall. It is tough, but possible. The best advice I have is time management. When you get your syllabus, write every assignment on your calendar and plan your "class time" accordingly. That was the best thing I did! My classes were entirely web based so a few assignments still snuck up on me like a ninja! Best of luck in school. I'm sure you will do well!

  2. Congrats on grad school! Good luck with the book--currently working to get my book into hardcover : ) I haven't read that book yet. Enjoy your 2015 : )

  3. I am totally psyched that you got your report cards done! My status on the other hand isn't as promising. I have entered all the grades into the gradebook, just need to add comments and such. Oh well, report cards don't get sent home until the 12th, so I still have some time, right? Anyway, best of luck - I'm sure you'll be inspired to manage stress & publish your own book soon (maybe after grad school's over)!!

  4. Hi Chrissy!

    Congratulations on starting grad school! What a great way to start the new year! :) I have done a couple of 5K's. I have always walked them tho. Maybe I will look into this and give it a shot. Write a book? That's one of the things that is on my bucket list!!! I will get there one of these days! :)
