Currently in May

New month means new linky! I'm linking up with Farley for the monthly Currently!


Listening--
Two and a Half Men with Charlie Sheen (it really changed when Charlie 'died')

Loving--
This month I'm not complaining about the weather. I'm enjoying the last week or so sooooo much. The coldest day this week will be in the 60s. I can handle that. I'm hoping with the late start to spring that summer won't be scorching. 

Thinking--
At my school each year the first graders perform a circus. Well it's almost that time folks. I wanted to show last year's performance to the current first graders but I can't find that flippin' DVD! I can find the years before it but 2012 has grown legs and walked off. 

Wanting--
Indiana has had some problems with the current standardized test which has to be administered online. Also for us K-2 teachers we have some testing to do as well. I will be up to my elbows next week in DIBELs. ;/

Needing--
I have a baby shower (I'm going to have a new nephew) and a birthday celebration this weekend. My younger brother is going to have a son, Baby P, and my older brother is celebrating his birthday on Sunday. (Despite it being Cinco de Mayo we're having a cookout...I really wanted some queso blanco)

Summer Bucket List--
  1. Road Trip-So far I'm planning a road trip with my friend to Chicago. We're going to go to the science museum, Shedd Aquarium, and whatever else tickles our fancy. 
  2. I don't know if I'll be beach-bound this summer (sniffle, sniffle) but I will be lounging at the pool slathered in SPF working on my pale people tan.
  3. During the school year I usually limit going out to weekends. I still call S-Th school nights lol. This summer I want to go and hang out and eat and do what all the crazy kids do during the week. (or even what my late 20s early 30s friends do, lol)

I really enjoyed reading your post. I think a road trip sounds amazing!!! I have always wanted to do an East Coast road trip and visit historical landmarks. I am your newest follower.

Your bucket list is great! I am so envious of my friends who do things on school nights, while I do teacher-homework and go to bed. Here's to catching up on some week-night fun this summer! I'm a new follower. :)
