April Currently....and a game plan for this week!

Wow, I can not believe it is April already. Time is flying by so fast! But for now, I will continue to enjoy my spring break. I have managed to get lots of stuff done around my house, and finish my lesson plans for next week. However, I have done nothing else...well that is not entirely true...I have managed to eat my weight (or close to it) in Easter candy an since I have not been to the gym since Friday, I am a little terrified to step on the scale.

Last night I logged onto my blog and started going through my feed and saw lots of people posting this month's Currently. I have not participated in a few months so I was super excited to get back into this little morsel of linky goodness!!

So here is my April Currently.....love that Farley does this every month and that so many people participate. Here is a link to her blog if you want to participate (she has a blank one of these that you can edit in PicMonkey or any other editing program)

My son has a friend over today and I am going to try and pry them away form the TV long enough to get to the Y so I can workout while they swim.  I can't believe that Spring Break is finally here but it is flying by so fast. I keep thinking about my to do list of stuff I wanted to get done this week while we are out of school. I doubt I will be able to complete it but I am going to try, including reading 3 books I brought home in my teacher bag. And who was I kidding thinking I was going to touch any of that work I brought home, lol! 
Whatever I do, I need to stay away form the Easter candy and head to the gym. If I don't I will be sorry!!!
Last but not least, my advice for other bloggers and teacher sis about sharing. I have worked in teams that were great sharers, and also with people who hoard ideas like a fat kid hoards candy bars. The latter is toxic and nobody wants to work on teams like that. The beauty of our profession is that we are by nature sharers and it is after all, about the kids, so why would anyone not want to share. I appreciate those teacher/bloggers out there that share their ideas, projects, TPT stuff (I do pay for my share of stuff on TPT as well..but who doesn't love a freebie every once in a while.   

Well, that is it for today. I plan on checking in tomorrow to see what is happening out there in bloggy land....
and good luck to my TX teacher friends whose kiddos are taking the STAAR writing tests today and tomorrow!!!

  2. I need to run also. My sister and I are going to run a 5K on my birthday and I haven't even began training. I worked out once. Does that count? lol
    I already had my spring break but am jealous you have the week off. Hope you have a great one. :)
    Found you through the Currently and am your newest follower. Looking forward to reading more posts from you.

  3. I so hear ya on the candy thing. Easter is a killer in this department. And, I am not even supposed to have candy. I get horrible stomach aches when I eat it, but has this fact stopped me?? NOPE!!! Blah . . . what a dope . . . but that sugary sweet goodness is just so hard to resist. Enjoy the rest of your break my dear! Glad to meet you today :)
