April currently

This is my first time joining in on one of these "Currently's" so let's see if I did it right. Originally started here it looks like.

Currently listening: Fun. is one of my favorite bands. I liked the lead singer's former band, The Format, and followed him to Fun. We saw them last year in concert and they were awesome! Their first album is good as well. I have this currently playing on my laptop while I grade papers.
Currently loving: It's my spring break this week yippee! Oh how I needed some time off, even if I have work to do. I also love that this weekend had temps near the 60s, though today is quite a bit cooler.
Currently thinking: Lots of grading to do over break. I just want to get all caught up so I can start fresh when I return Monday.
Currently wanting: I need a real vacation so badly and we probably won't be taking one this year. Well we might escape to the Smoky Mountains for a few days if my parents can watch the dog.
Currently needing: My FIL goes in for brain surgery next Tuesday, so all the prayers and good vibes you can send his way would be much appreciated!
Advice: I went to Old Navy on Friday and I KNOW I have a gift card that still has money on it, but I could not find it anywhere in my purse/wallet. That was frustrating. So I decided from now on, when I get gift cards, I am putting them in a little plastic sandwich bag and tape the receipts to them, so I know how much money is still left on each one when I use them. That way they are all in one spot and I can easily find them.

Today was spent at Barnes & Noble doing some grading, surfing the Web, drinking some coffee and just relaxing. Tonight we have to get my husband fitted for a tux for a wedding he is in coming up, and we have loads and loads of laundry to do, as well as lots of cleaning. Fun fun! Have a good one! Happy April :) 

P.S. If you are stopping by the first time, I am a relatively new teacher blogger and love "meeting" new teachers and visiting new blogs. I'd love to interact with all of you! Feel free to follow my blog on the right hand side and leave a link to yours for me to check out.


  1. Love your Currently & so happy to have found your blog. I teach 1st and in AWE of those in high school. Wow!

    I'm sending up prayers for your FIL - I hope he does well in surgery and wishing him a speedy and successful recovery!

  2. I could use a tropical vacation too - ready for warmer weather! Sending good thoughts your way for your FIL.

  3. If you have a smart phone, there are many, many apps that will store your gift cards AND balances for you. It's the only way I can make sure I have mine with me. Slightly more work on the front end, but totally worth it when I need that ONE card!

    I'm glad to have found your blog!

  4. Good idea with the gift cards! I was on spring break last week and though I didn't work staying at home isn't quite the same as lounging on a beach.

    Found you through the linky. :)
