March currently

Boy these months are flying by.  February was a really hectic month with changes at school and family health problems.    I'm excited to start off with my spring break and enjoy some time relaxing and having fun with friends.  So I'm linking up with my favorite linky party currently.

Listening-I LOVE Netflix and Crossing Lines is a fun police procedural set in Europe and different countries.  
Loving-I'm excited to finally be on spring break.  This year is just flying by.  I'm looking forward to having some time to relax and catch  up with life.
Thinking-I'm thinking about all the stuff I'd like to accomplish.  I want to get organized at home, have fun with friends and catch up on life and yes do some school work.
Wanting-  I really want to get organized at home.  It's more of a motivation now because I'm hoping to work from home in the near future.  It would be great for so many reasons.  The big one is adding an hour and a half in my day that's wasted by commuting.  I want to get everything in order so it's easier to work from home.
Needing- Well it's finally here.  Spring break now it's time to have fun!!  February has been rough between changes at work and health problems with the family it seems as if all my time has been consumed.  I'm determined now.  I'm ready to have fun and obtain some balance in my life.
Polling sites-I don't think they should be at schools, not anymore.  Maybe if they can keep them totally seperate from students, but not a great day.

If your interested link up with Farley and tell us what your doing currently.

It's Currently A New Year!!

Happy New Years!!  It's hard to believe it's already 2016 and the year is halfway through.  This year has flown by once more.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my two weeks of vacation.  I've been doing some work, relaxing and spending time with family and friends. 

Listening-To Grand Hotel on Netflix.  It's a fun Spanish series, kind of a Spanish Downton Abbey, but it's a mystery.

Loving- It's so nice having two weeks off.  I've been able to reconnect with family and friends, recharge and spend time catching up with life.

Thinking- I'm spending time getting ready to return to work on Monday.  Luckily we have 3 work days when we return, but I'd like to make sure everything is organized and ready to go when I return.

Wanting- Decluttering-I've been wanting to spend more time decluttering and getting things organized at home.  I'm hoping that I'll be able to work at home within the year.

Needing- A trip to the ocean.  I was hoping to take an overnighter to the ocean over my break but unfortunately I didn't have the time. Hopefully soon.

One little word- Balance- I've been very busy adjusting to my new job.  However, for the most part I've been all work and no play.  I really need to spend more time exercising and eating healthier.  My new job is more sedentary and I don't get much exercise I really want to focus on more exercise, eating healthier and having more fun.

Link up with Farley and tell us what we're doing currently.

Currently on Christmas vacation

It's so nice to finally be on Christmas vacation.  It's been a crazy, busy hectic fall.  I started a new job this year teaching online-which I love!!  However, it's been a huge learning curve this year.  So many new things to learn but luckily I have a really strong support system and a lot of help.  Anyway, it's nice to be home, relaxing and taking the opportunity to reflect on my teaching and life and recharge for the new year.  I want to start 2016 on a positive note-recharged and ready to go.  So that being said it's time to join in with my favorite linky party Farley's Currently

Listening-Loving listening to oldies on Pandora

Loving-Christmas vacation of course!!  Two weeks of freedom Yay!!  I'm having lunch with friends, shopping, seeing movies, resting and planning for the new year.

Thinking-So much I want to accomplish over my vacation-now to make a plan on how to do it all.  One big thing is reconnecting with friends and family!

Wanting-Really wanting to do some clutter busting over my vacation.  I'm hoping to start working from home in the new year and I need to prep my home workplace.

Needing-Working on my New Years resolutions.  One big thing is exercise.  My new job is a lot more sedentary because I have to work from a desk, but trying to plan ways to add more movement into my life, both during the day and afterwards.  I also want to do more socializing and expanding my social and friend network.

Happy Holidays everyone!!

October Currently!

Once again I'm late to the game.  This year has been flying by!  I've had the best of intentions with my little blog.  I've been trying to get better about writing more often.  However, since I started my new job teaching online it's consumed me.  I love it, but it's been a very busy time stepping out of my comfort zone and learning something totally different.  Anyway, Farley's Currently is one of my favorite linky parties so I decided to join in on the fun.

Listening- I just started watching Dr. Who on Netflix.  I've been hearing a lot about it and it's one of my nieces favorite shows.  So I decided to start watching it.  So far so good!

Loving- My fall break- After a very busy 2 months at my new job it was SO nice to have fall break.  It always is, but this year has been particularly nice.  I went out to Ohio to visit my brother and his family and it was a nice get away.  The weather was beautiful between mid 50's and mid 70's and a nice change from the warm Arizona weather.

Thinking- About next week of course.  I've been busy planning and getting ready for the next week while I've been on vacation.  I had fun and relaxed with family but I also needed time to plan and get ahead.

Wanting- I've been craving a big trip (probably to Europe) in the near future.  

Needing-  The hardest thing for me to do when I'm working striving a good balance between working hard and playing hard and that includes exercise and eating well.

B00-tiful- What's beautiful to me or makes me feel beautiful. Either taking a trip to Europe or something cool like Greece or Italy and/or dressing up glamorously.

Anyway, what are you doing currently?  Link up with Farley!

It's September!!

Labor Day weekend and after this most schools will be back from summer vacation.  It seems like schools are going back earlier and earlier and it's no different in Arizona.  Most schools are back at school at the beginning of August.  Even though it's only been a month it's been busy for me.  I just started a new job teaching online and it's been a big learning curve.  I'm enjoying the challenge though and love the people I'm working with.  Anyway, a new month means a new currently and I love linking up with them so here is my currently.

Listening-  I love Netflix and my current show I love is Hawaii 5-0 the current one (although I love the older version as well)

Loving- I love my job but it's nice to have a 3 day weekend.  I'm looking forward to relaxing and recharging

Organizing- My constant quest is to get better organized at home and at school.  I just bought a new computer and printer and scanner so I'm looking forward to some time to set things in place and get better organized.

Wanting- I really want to spend some time working on lesson plans this weekend, and getting caught up with work

Needing- More balance in my life- More health and fitness, more fun, more laughter.  I love my job and the challenge of it, but there's always something to do and improve upon but it won't do me any good if I don't take care of myself.

3 goals-
1) Maintaining balance- I've been better this year but when things start getting crazy busy I put off my health and fitness and that's just wrong.  I need movement now more than ever since I'm working from a cubicle at work.  I'm looking forward to cooler weather and hopefully walking a bit during my lunch hour.
2) Health and fitness-  Regular workouts, cooking more and eating more fruits and veggies and foods that aren't processed.
3) Blogging more- I always have high hopes each month for doing more blogging.  I love to write and want to get more active in the blogging world.  Also getting more proficient with technology.

Anyway, September means cooler weather and hopefully that'll happen soon.  I'm tired of warm weather.  Come join the fun at Oh Boy Fourth Grade and tell us what your doing currently.

It's Currently the End of Summer

Well it's the end of summer for me.  Most schools in Arizona are starting this week.  It never makes any sense to me since it's usually the hottest part of the summer here (although it is sure is nice to get out of school at the end of May).

Anyway it's been a busy summer.  I spent the summer job hunting, although I did have the opportunity to relax, and spend some time at our summer cabin in Minnesota.  Luckily, I found a job that I'm really excited about, teaching special education online.  It's going to be a big learning curve, but I'm looking forward to the challenge.

Listening- Crossing Lines is a great show on Netflix.  It's a cop show about a group of cops that work internationally.  Really good!

Loving- I totally feel re-energized.  I just started a new job this year teaching online.  I'm learning so much and loving the difference!  Looking forward to eventually be able to work from home.

Thinking-So many goals for the new year.  Other than doing a great job and learning all the new technology, this year is going to be all about balance!  I really need to make a strong effort to make sure I'm exercising and moving around.  Since I'm working from a desk it's even more important than before.  I've been better, but I want to be more regular-at least 2-3 times a week for yoga and/or the gym for cardio and weights.

Wanting-Also a constant quest of mine.  I'm always working at being more organized.  Since I'm learning a new job, I'm learning how to be better organized in a way that's more efficient for this job.  I'm also working on being better organized at home.

Needing- Again to get in a regular workout routine...  At least a few times a week and mix it up with yoga and gym and hiking when it gets cooler here.

What are doing currently?  Come over and tell us!

B2S RAK-Little notes of appreciation for everyone that's been so helpful at my new job.

It's Currently July

It's hard to believe it's July already.  This summer vacation is going so fast.  I've been relaxing, reading and spending time with friends.  I've also been job hunting.  I was ready for a change and was able to find a job as an online teacher.  I'm really excited about the change and looking forward to the challenge of trying something new.  I've also been researching and trying to find online resources about being an online teacher, but most of what I've found has to do with teaching at a university level.  Any a new month means a new currently and I love joining in with my favorite linky party.

Listening-  My latest netflix marathon is Unbreakable Kimmy Shmidt.  I've heard lots of good things about it and I'm really enjoying it.  I definitely recommend it.

Loving- I'm loving the freedom that summer brings-sleeping in, reading, swimming, spending time with my family, and doing all the stuff I don't have time to do during the year.

Thinking- The highlight of my summer is always going to our cottage in Minnesota.  I'm looking forward to cooler weather and reconnecting with family and friends I only see once a year.

Wanting- I'm looking forward to some cooler weather and even dare I say it rain!!  I love Arizona and it has wonderful weather during the majority of the year, but summer time it's so darn hot!!  It's like living in a furnace, and all I want to do is spend my time indoors.  Luckily when I go to Minnesota I'll hopefully be enjoying some cooler weather and rain.  I can't wait!!

Needing-  I've been making some good progress in my new healthier me.  I've been going to the gym and working out, and swimming on a regular basis.  Now I need to just need to start doing yoga on a regular basis.  During the school year I was doing yoga outdoors at Lululemon, but it's much warmer now and they're no longer doing the classes outdoors.  I just need to be consistent with it once the school year begins.  I'm also working on eating healthier, but I still have my work cut out for me trying to find recipes that are easy to make, healthy and not too pricey.

How's your summer going?  What are you doing currently?  Come on over to Farley's blog and tell us what you're doing currently.
