Listening … My husband’s friend is out of town so we’re watching his 2 golden retrievers for the weekend. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE dogs but it’s been 24 hours and there’s tumbleweeds of dog fur already floating around my house!
Loving … I’m so excited to do my first Currently! Yay for blogging!
Thinking … I have lots to do this weekend so I’m going to start by organizing my to do list (so I’m pretty much procrastinating already!)
Wanting … We had really bad storms here today! So bad that our whole school was restricted from moving anywhere (luckily we go to lunch so early that we were still able to get our kids to lunch in the cafeteria). Then, a 1st grade class had to join in with my Kinder class for the afternoon because they evacuated their building since the sidewalks were starting to flood around it. And now I have to get 3 dogs to go outside in this rain, yuck!
Needing … I’m a bookworm and I can usually read a book in 2 days or less if I have nothing else going on. I’ve been so crazy busy recently that I’ve been reading the same book for weeks…it’s killing me! It’s the 3rd book in a series which always seems to take me longer to get through (Shatter Me series – YA dystopia). I’m just hoping to get through it this weekend so I don’t get charged late fees at the library!
Surprise! … I “met” Cassie from Mrs. Thomas’s Class through a Facebook group. She’s super sweet and teaches Kindergarten like me! She wanted her kiddos to have pen pals to write to for the rest of the year so we’ve teamed up. Such a cute idea and my kids love that we have “friends” in Texas!

Happy Friday and happy May! Only 24 days left for me until summer!!

I love the colors of your blog! Awesome job on your first currently. You'll be hooked! I just started blogging in December and it is fun! I wish we had some rain here in New Mexico. It is soooo dry. Send it my way!
I will let the rain know to head west! 🙂

It's so funny that you want it to stop raining and I want it to rain more! We have just come out of summer in Australia and I am loving that it is cooling down! I am a huge procrastinator – which is why I am blog hopping right now!
Have a great weekend!
