So…I missed the October CURRENTLY.  Things in my world were pretty cah-razy…as Amy Farah Fowler would say!

I’m linking up EARLY this time for the November CURRENTLY linky from Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade.  I really enjoy this linky because it’s fun to learn schtuff about other bloggers.  It’s just fun!  😉

So…EVERY Saturday…college football is on.  Yeah…every Saturday!  But I don’t mind because I enjoy it, too.  Nothing says fall like college football. Ok, cooler weather (which I am SOOOO enjoying right now), too, but still…

I’m loving the fact that I did absolutely, positively NO school work today!  Yay for me!  I just can’t ever seem to get away from it.  Anyone else like that?  If it’s not something for school, it’s something to put in my TpT store…which is something that I use with my kids…so yeah…school, school, school.  Nice to get away…even if for just one day!

Today marked the first day that Target puts one toy on 50% off on their Cartwheel app.  Did you know that?  I’m a couponer, so I look at stuff like that all the time.  But yeah…I’m starting to think about Christmas shopping!  I love it!  It’s my favorite time of year.  I love everything about Christmas.  I *might* have even watched Home Alone already, too…  You’ll never know!

I would love some calm moments at my house this evening.  It’s been…interesting…to say the least!  Our little guy is potty training…and he’s pretty much “trained”…but boys and toilets…yeah…it’s pain staking fun!  Between that and a 14 year old dog that doesn’t want/can’t go down the stairs anymore…just imagine the messes we have right now.  Good thing we invested in a Spot Bot and Tide Oxi!  Those two things are GOLDEN!

Fall back.  THE best day of the year…besides Christmas, of course!  I can ALWAYS use an extra hour of sleep.

Ok, I have to admit…I’m not actually CURRENTLY reading Daily 5…but it’s next on my list.  I really want to try it out with my kids.  We use the Balanced Literacy approach in my district.  I have talked with our Literacy Coach about how I can merge the two together to give my kiddos more teacher time.  I would love to do my mini-lessons in small groups rather than whole groups…and also allow more time for choices about reading and writing.  I’ll be blogging about how it works…if it does.  Pray for us!  If you have a post about how you use it, will you PLEASE comment with a link to your post?  I would LOVE to read how others use it!!

So there you have it…my CURRENTLY list.  And I might even get in the top 20.  Must hurry!

Peace out!



  1. College football is my life on Saturdays too. I love it though! :)
    I need to read the Daily 5 book as well. Thanks for the suggestion!


  2. I love college football too. My team is not playing today, but I still love the big matchups that happened today. I am like you, I love the cool weather, just not that much cooler.

  3. I didn’t do any school work today either! I am sure I will be sorry tomorrow but for today I am loving it! Tomorrow, for the first time, I am using your poppers with my class of 4th grade froggies! I can’t wait.

  4. I am SO looking forward to that extra hour of sleep! It is so welcomed. Fingers crossed my four month old sleeps later than usual so I can enjoy it. :) (Hey- a girl can dream, right?!)

  5. Christmas thinking already?! Wah! I don’t even want to accept that because that would mean that we are going to have tons of snow in just a few short weeks here in Minnesota! I agree with you about needing that extra hour. It does wonders! :) Happy November!

    Everyone needs a good day off with no school work from time to time! I’d like to make today one of those days but half term week is over and I need to get planning for the coming week! Enjoy your extra hour (ours came last weekend!).
