Currently... Tired.. But It's October and I have a TREAT for you!

Happy October 1st! It's way past my bedtime... like hours past my bedtime but I had some serious stuff to get finished tonight.  Just as I was going to close down the computer, I noticed that the one and only Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade has put up her Currently linky! So I had to jump in and do it now, or I fear it won't get done!!

Listening- To Conan in the background, but I have to say I'm not a huge fan. It's just on. It's not that I don't enjoy a good late night show, I just never am up to watch them, so they aren't my first choice to watch!!!

Loving- The Fall weather that has hit Wisconsin.  I got to wear leggings and boots today! SWOON!  I might even wear a scarf tomorrow. How's the weather where you live?

Thinking- I'm crazy... it's too late to be functioning. I hope the baby sleeps through the night. I am going to be super tired tomorrow!

Wanting- I'm still not feeling ahead of the game, even though I feel like I am working non-stop. I seriously give so much credit to every hard working mom and dad out there. Working full time and having a baby is hard! I'm so lucky for my support system... I just want to feel ahead. 

Needing- I usually stay late on Wednesday to plan for the next week. I didn't get any planning done tonight. I spent my time organizing my new class set of chrom books. I know, I know.. I'm super lucky to have them... I just don't know how I want them set up in my room yet, so it's been a bit frustrating!!! 

Treat- I just finished (which is why I'm up late) my math centers for Fall. They are review centers that I use for students to work on if they are finished with centers early.  They cover the concept of addition with regrouping, subtracting with regrouping and place value concepts. I'm putting them up in my store for free for a limited time just for YOU!  Please leave some feedback if you do download. I would greatly appreciate it!!

I'd love for you to follow my store for updates too!! :) 

Be sure to stop by Farley's blog... to check out of the currently linkys!! It's always my favorite time of the month in bloggy world!!

Have a wonderful end to the week!!  


  1. I am so jealous that you have cool weather already. We are still in the 90s with high humidity. Can't wait for fall!

  2. I'm in Chicagoland and have been immensely enjoying the fall weather too! I wore a scarf the past two days just to celebrate it! Thank you for the freebie- it looks fantastic!

  3. Hi Ana! I also blogged about leggings and boots for fall! Good luck with the crome books! That's pretty awesome! And you are right, having a baby and teaching is hard work! I'm sure you are doing a fine job!


    1. Hi Becky! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love that I'm reading so many blog posts about leggings and fall! :) Thanks for the luck on the chrome books. I have to say the kids are so excited so that is going great!

  4. I feel like I work non-stop and behind too! I'm trying to get it all under control too...

  5. I concur with you about never feeling caught up, yet working non-stop. Ugh!! Why is it like this this year? I don't get it. :( So, that's great that you have a class set of Chromebooks! I have one, too. Well, I have a cart of 40 that is housed in my room, and we have a sign up sheet for other classes to sign them out. But we have 4 carts in our school, so I only have to share with 4 other teachers, really. Besides research, writing docs, and typing, what are you going to have your kids do on them? I'm trying to figure out other ways to have my kids use them, but I haven't come up with anything. I'd love to hear what you do. thanks! Have a great week.
