There's Not Enough Time in the Day!

Do you ever feel like there's just not enough time in the day? I have all of these amazing plans that I want to do in my classroom and at home. However, some days just finding time to take a restroom break seems like an accomplishment.:)

I've made a goal to make at least one new product for my classroom and my TPT store each weekend. So far, I've been able to stick to that goal, but because of that, my blog has suffered neglect. Oh well...I never claimed to be Supermom or Superteacher. So, I'm just going to be proud of myself for what I have done & move on.

We got a new kitten this week! His name is Magnus. (My 13 year old daughter and I love The Mortal Instruments series & Magnus is a character in the books.)  He's so tiny & so cute! However, we really didn't need one more thing to take care of but...I think I'm more in love with him than our kids. ;)

You'll have to check out some of the cute things I've made for my classroom!! I have several new 4 corners games, some new task cards, and a new I Have Who has Game!

September Currently

I'm linking up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the September Currently.

I LOVE the Game of Thrones theme song. My daughter plays the cello & I keep encouraging her to ask her orchestra teacher if they can play the theme song because the cello part is so pretty. Anyway, somebody on YouTube did a a Big 10 version that is so neat. (We're IU Alumni.) I couldn't wait to show my husband, so he's watching it now.

I am a Big Brother addict. I've watched every single season. My husband used to watch it with me, but he refuses now. My 13 year old daughter has started watching it with me the last two seasons. I love that she & I have something to do together. I'm so sad that she's growing up so fast, so anything we have in common to do together is that much more special.

I have so many doctor appointments this week & I am dreading them. It makes the week so crazy when I leaving right after school & heading out of town to appointments. I'm also dreading seeing my endocrinologist this week because I know I have to schedule to have radioactive iodine treatment done again.

My house looks awful! I have been sick the past year & tired beyond belief. Apparently it doesn't bother the rest of my family that the weeds have taken over. My wonderful sister has volunteered to come down and help me redo all of my flower beds & plant things that are less maintenance. I can't wait.

I NEED the air conditioning to work in my classroom. It is hard enough to entertain 3rd graders all day and teach them the amount of information that we need to cram in during a normal day. But...when it's in the 90's outside & the air in my room doesn't work it's even worse. I am so sick of complaining about it & being ignored. Very frustrating.

I have always wanted to go to Fiji & stay in one of the huts on the water. The photographs look amazing. I've also wanted to tour the Hawaiian islands since I was a little girl. When I was in college I had a professor from Germany. He was talking about all of the places he had visited or lived & said that he thought Rome was the most beautiful city of all of them. I'd love to see it one day.
