Currently {April}

It's April!  That means warm weather and baseball season has finally arrived.  I missed out on Farley's Currently last month, but I'm back at it today!

Listening: Since I've been on bed rest, I've become a religious Today Show watcher.  Don't worry, I'm on top of all the important worldly news (and some not-so-important as well)!

Loving: For the first time in months, the weatherman isn't saying "below-normal temperatures."  It is finally average and even above-average weather time!  Although that means allergy season is coming, I'll take it!

Thinking: This 39-week baby bump is gettin big!  I was doing pretty good up until the last week, but now it's starting to get in the way.  So excited and thankful that she is in there though!

Wanting: Baby Girl should be here any day now!  I was convinced she would be early, but she is proving otherwise now.

Needing: I could definitely be putting my bed rest to better use than doing puzzles on my iPad (and watching The Today Show)!  Definitely getting my naps in, though, before that opportunity disappears.

Hours and Last Day: The school day starts at 8:40 and ends at 3:00 for the kids.  I usually get there an hour early, but leave right away at the end of the day.  I am such a morning person and like to prepare myself for the day.  I used to stay late, but quickly realized that it was not a productive time.  I was so tired, that I would just turn in circles and not get anything accomplished!

Our last day of school is June 18th, due to our 4 snow days.  That's not too bad though.  There were some schools in our state that went to June 28th last year - yikes!

    39 close! Glad she stayed in there and safe! Enjoy her when she comes (soon!)


  2. Just stopping by from the Currently Link Up! :) I'm watching the Today Show, too! However, I am not on bed rest...just spring break! :) I am so excited about the above average temps, too. Perfect timing! Good luck with the new baby on the way!

  5. I hope your baby girl comes soon! I'm sure it's hard to be productive when all you're thinking about is labor! I've wanted to read that Aimee Buckner book for some time. I'm glad you liked it. I'd love to hear how you plan on using it in your classroom.
    Best of luck!!!!

  6. Thanks for kind comments about my hubby finding a job. Fingers crossed! :)
    Congrats on your baby girl. I wish you all the best!
    Wow, June 18th sounds late but I guess it depends on when you start!

  7. EEEK! You are getting so close to your due date! I'm so excited for you! I can totally relate to the morning person thing...I'm up every morning at 5:00 a.m. because that is the only time when my house is quiet! :) Good luck to you with baby day!!!!
