Currently... March....

Hi friends! I have been doing a lot more blog reading this school year then actual blogging. This has been a very tough year for me. It is all I can do to make it through the week without pulling my hair out. Tough tough year....but luckily it is almost 3/4 of the way over. I need a fresh start.

I like to to link up with Farley and see what everyone else in blog land is doing or thinking.

So here it is....

Quiet: I was wide awake at 5:45 (on a Saturday) and had been tossing and turning all night. I finally decided that it would be better to sit on my couch in the quiet while contemplating my troubles with my coffee and blogs. 

Thinking: I overthink too much. My brain is going a mile a minute and has been since a fun staff meeting yesterday afternoon. Don't you just love those? All control being taken away and nothing I can do about it. 

Wanting: A nice warm donut sounds good while I eat my feelings away. That is an awful feeling. 

Needing: Wouldn't every teacher love to have their own unlimited copies and copy machine!?

Like: Money... who doesn't?

Love: Movies... I want to go pick up the newest Twilight today and watch it. I need an escape. 

Hate: Malarkey.... see above staff meeting. 

Sorry for all the gloom. I will be looking forward to an end of this year and being able to start fresh and new. It has to be better. Right? 

Go link up with Farley and have a great weekend! 


  1. I'm right there with you on the donut! :( An end of the year would be a great start. At least you get a Spring Break soon- we have some days off for Easter but that's it.

    1. We have 1 day off for Easter and then no more til Memorial Day. Testing season... here we come.

  2. Hey, we all have those gloomy moments. I overthink things all the time. If you ever need to vent to someone, let me know! :) You can email me anytime. Sometimes you just need to get it all out.

    I hope things get better. There should be a law that they can't have staff meetings like that at the end of the week.

    1. I think there is a conspiracy for Friday staff meetings! lol

  3. What is all this talk about donuts? hahaha... I just visited Merinda (the blog in front of yours at Farleys) and that's what she's wanting too. Now I want one, but don't want to have to get ready and go in search of one in these rural backwoods!! hahaha...

    Hope your year gets better (or at least that spring break revives you for just a bit!)

    Hang in there...Summer break is less than 3 months!

    1. thank you for your kind words! I appreciate it!

  4. Hi Meridith, I just found you through Farley's CURRENTLY. I am Merinda that Cynthia was talking about. And yes I do want a chocolate donut today but I am dieting (so BOO!). I hear you about wanting a fresh start. I had a year like that last year. It's one of the things I love about teaching is that we get to start over. Hang in there!

  5. I can't remember the last time I had a doughnut! :)


  6. Hi Meridith! Nothing better than silence, a coffee (or two) and blogs. :)
    Your Friday staff meetings should be banned... what a horrible way to end the week!
