This morning

I slept in... that I never do 
so it was so nice
but I was tired from watching the SPURS WIN!!! yee haw
and then I made Bub waffles (really popped them in a toaster and waited)
then I watered my outside plants, washed down my back porch, took a really long and nice shower,
oh and mopped my floor because my dogs walked through the water from the back porch and left nice little doggy prints...  all sizes... small, medium, and large (i have 3 doggies)
and then  I was checking my social networks and 
WHAM!!!
Laura B tagged me about stalking my blog... waiting for the CURRENTLY
OH.MY.GOLLY.MISS.MOLLY
I totally forgot today was the 1st 
well I didn't forget... I wasn't even thinking... really?!?!
so thanks to Laura B for the tag 
or you crazies that stalk all day on the first would have been refreshing a really LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time...
my errand list is pretty long today... HAHA
thanks again Laura... 
so here it is


I am pretty sure all of mine are self explanatory...
* kid acting like he is light sabering Darth Vader... he's 5 that's what I get 24/7
usually hub is in it with him... and he isn't Darth Vader... *smirky face*
* loving that some of you crazies stalk my blog on the first
 I would have been CLUELESS today
or really far from the house because one of my errands is out of town... thanks again Luara B
* my 2 partners are leaving me... I am really going to miss them... REALLY REALLY
they both have gotten jobs closer to their families and although I am SUPER happy for them
I am SUPER SAD and probably have thrown some pitty parties for myself the last few days
streamers and decorations and all... yep they were big pitty parties... BUT I didn't send out any invites to join me soooo I was SOLO at my parties... and it's my party and I can cry if I want to
* I would love to loop with my kiddos... toots and all... I have a really wonderful class this year and even though some are little stinkers.. they are just little stinkers and I LOVE them... I LOVE THEM ALL
* so I need to act like a dog and throw some grass on it and move on... I can't change what is happening in my life right now but I can choose to not let it steal my JOY... moving on
* always go to see my Mississippi Gma... she is awesome and she lives by the beach... I love it there
I want to get serious about losing more weight... I hurt my knee running and I haven't been able to walk or run or yoga or anything without it swelling up... so I am going to focus on my diet and shed some pounds... I have an appointment to see my Dr. ( I have already had surgery on this knee before).. but he travels a lot with a little team called the SPURS and since they are kicking some serious bootay... I can't get in anytime soon... he told me to ICE and rest until he sees what I did to it... he also said as long as 38 year olds act like 20 year olds he will always be in practice... thanks DOC
and #3... we are seriously contemplating selling this house... we need something a little bigger and with a big yard and POOL... we think we found a house we like BUT we need to sell this one first... sooooooo if the house we like is still available when we get this one ready... we might be new home owners... maybe... or we could just put a pool in here and extend my kitchen out, and redo my bathroom, and and and...

ALRIGHT... there was mine...
and here is yours...

REMEMBER to do the rule of 3...
comment on the 2 links ahead of you and the one after you...
PLEASE make sure your comments are about their post and thoughtful
and if you leave a comment for me... I LOVE comments....start with the words blah blah blah...
because one it is funny and two I think my CURRENTLY posts are not really read... people are just so quick to get on the list... I really don't think some of them READ my posts... so if you use the words blah blah blah in the front of your comment I will know you have read through my post and others will be like WHAT the heck is this blah blah blah and we can LAUGH together... ok ... LOL


also if YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO LINK UP...
at the top of my blog is a tab called CREATIONS... click on it and scroll down...
I have several links and sources for your learning how to CURRENTLY enjoyment!!!

alrighty I think that covers everything...
again thanks to

  4. Blah Blah Blah! I'm literally giggling to myself! :) One of my teachers is leaving (not by choice...because of realignment) and next year the other one is retiring...so I won't have a consistent team for at least 2 more years! Ugh. I wish I could keep my kiddos, too! Lots of them asked if I could go to 4th with them and it just made my heart smile. I always {jokingly} said, "Nope...I've dealt with you far too long...time for the 4th grade teachers to suffer!" They just rolled their eyes at me.:) Love them! I took selfies with them the last day and I've never seen them so excited...even the ones who always look at me like I'm crazy were all about selfies with their teacher!

    LOL! Great way to make sure people are reading through your posts! I wish I felt the same about leaving my kiddos. This has been the toughest year ever! Complete with the expulsion of one of my kiddos. I will be glad to get a fresh start next year.

  7. Blah Blah Blah - thanks for the perfect procrastination tool today. I was feeling bad for myself having to move schools/grades - but you are changing teammates and thinking of selling your house - no way could I handle all of that change! You make my kind of waffles by the way : )

  15. Blah, Blah, Blah! Such a good idea. I do this to my parents in my weekly newsletters. I so want to lose weight this summer. I'm starting next week. One more week for me then it's time to get serious. I love going to Biloxi. Will you be in Biloxi. I have some free suites at the Hard Rock. Maybe we could meet for lunch? I hope you sell your house or decide to add a pool. My family builds swimming pools for a living. It's so nice to be able to cool off in the summer.

  16. blah blah blah! I am totally thinking about next year already and this year is not even over yet!

    I will join your pity party. If you read my Currently post about my son, you will see why. And, you are right, it's my party and I will cry if I want to =)

  18. Blah, blah, blah! I'm cracking up with your secret codes right now! A new house sounds really exciting! Guess what?? My opera singin' sister is moving to TX! Say what!? She'll be attending Rice U next year, I can't wait to visit! I'm with you on needing to shed some pounds. Maybe we can have a blogging support group this summer....I know I need encouragement!

  19. blah blah blah Farley :-) love your blog and your currently and thanks for hosting all of us every month! Last year I left my amazing team - they were seriously the best ever - but to take a literacy coach position. I think I cried all of may last year (also had a breakup going on at the time - but we're back together, yay!) anyways, it is so hard to change teams when you got something really great - so I totally get that - but I'm sure your next will be just as amazing!

    Also - just saw your EOY crafty project and it's totally beautiful! If I had my own class, I'd def make them do it!

    ReplyDelete
  20. blah...blah....blah... Absolutely love reading your posts and the "blah blah blah" is just hysterical. I'm so sorry to hear about your teammates and your pity parties. Sometimes they really do make you feel better, though. My team has changed every single year I've taught,and I hate when I lose someone I love like that. Here's to getting back to happy. I think a trip to the beach might do the trick :)

  21. blah, blah, blah. Thank you for posting this! I missed the May one and was a kicking myself all month! I'm so sorry that your team is changing - I've worked with mine for 10 years so I TOTALLY get the pity party - I'd have one too if they all left! Hopefully all will be great in the fall and your new team will shine! Happy summer!

  22. Blah, blah, blah! So sorry to hear about your knee! Sure hope it feels better soon. That is NO FUN, I can relate! I have to admit I, too, was stalking you today, but didn't have the gumption to send you a message:) Thanks for hosting this fun little linky each month. I LOVE to hop from blog to blog reading everyone's CURRENTLY's!

  25. blah, blah, blah. This is the second month I'm linking up and I was totally stalking your blog. Then I started thinking that I might have been wrong ("was it the 1st or was it another day?" kind of thought). I love reading your posts and I thank you for letting us all link up. It's sooo much fun! Thanks, Laura B. for reminding you :D
    Hope you get a great class next year as well!

  26. blah, blah, blah......I had a pity party too and no one came, actually people sped away from my room in fear of waking the beast. 2 of my partners left for greener pastures and I got moved to Kindergarten and it is HARD to accept that much change. So blah, blah, blah, I hear ya sister!

  31. Blah, blah, blah! I love me a good pity party once in a while, I think it helps in the long run. Hope you can sell your house quickly and move to the new one. You gotta have a pool when you're off all summer, it's a must have! And I can totally relate to wanting to keep your group, sounds like they were awesome even the stinkers. Have a great summer! And enjoy your time in Mississippi.

    And this is TOTALLY random, but every time I think of Star Wars..I think of my best friend whose hubby is KINDA obsessed. So obsessed that the wedding figures on top of their cake where Darth and Leah.

  43. Blah blah blah..... You need a pool. I love my pool and would not trade it for anything. When we were looking for houses that is one thing I did not back down on. We could have a bigger and nicer house without a pool, but then what would I during the summer?

Your posts crack me up EVERY time, and your description of the sounds of your Bub defeating Darth Vader made me fondly remember when my son (who is now 24) used to battle the Evil Shredder as Donatello, his favorite Ninja Turtle. Enjoy the sounds of good vs. evil.....and may the force be with you as you continue to cherish and raise precious little guy!

    Best wishes as you get acquainted with your new team mates, and be sure to stay connected with you old ones! Make time for breakfast out on Saturday mornings, or adult beverages on Saturday night!

Changes are tough, been through them a bunch and they never get easy, I still miss my teammate who retired last year and you would think I would be over it by now, nope, not happening. You will do well and I know will win over your new teammates. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and goo lunk on the house stuff, that is a huge change too!

  61. Blah, blah, blah! Hi! I'm new to your blog, and kinda new to blogging at all. I've blogged a few post over the last six months or so, but not many. I've been stalking all the teachers' blogs because I am working to get BS in Elem Edu. I can't wait to teach!! Anyway, the whole time I've been blog stalking all of y'all, I've wanted to jump into all the link parties y'all have. But I didn't know if it was for anyone, or just for y'all. So I am here to ask if I can join all you wonderful, motivational and inspiring teachers??

    ReplyDelete
  62. blah blah blah…I'm sorry you are getting new teammates this year. I am also training/breaking in a new colleague:) Change is hard, but it can be good. Sounds like there will also be some change in your personal life: I hope your house sells fast! Mine was on the market over a year….it's a better market now, though! Enjoy your summer, Farley!!!

  68. blah blah blah - I bet more people read your posts than you think! As evidenced by all these lovely comments :)

    And, oh no! You hurt your knee running too!? How did you do that? I totally feel your pain there. I dislocated my knee *TWICE* in the last 5 years. Once was the weekend before a marathon that I had spent 5 months training for. Urg. I miss running so much! Hang in there, knee injuries are the worst, but there are definitely things you can do to strengthen it!

    I also fully relate to your "needing". It is so hard to let go of what we can't control! Have a fabulous summer! 9 days left!

  70. Blah Blah Blah...blah blah blah....yes, daughter of mine...you crack me up. You forgot to tell them when our Bub is in "the zone" drawing or putting together a Lego creation, he sings opera...LOUDLY....and for the longest Paw Paw and I couldn't figure it out until we realized it was music from the Star Wars movies (and I have no clue what episode it is from, but my sweet Bub explained to me ~leaving out not one description ~ what episode the music is from and what is exactly happening during that entire opera piece)....I'm telling you, it cracks me up. We are used to it now...and I think the dogs are too. I hope if he gets in "the zone" in Kinder, he doesn't break out in song/opera. LOL Wishing all your teacher followers a most wonderful summer to rest, relax and enjoy their vacation. ...though some I know will be preparing for next year's class, workshops, etc....such is the life of a good teacher. Blah Blah Blah.....<3

  71. Blah! Blah! Blah! Love reading your posts. I am right with you needing to get on track with my health. I had to take a break from the gym due to some medical reason almost 2 years and 20 pounds ago I still haven't gotten back on track. That is my number one priority this summer to do it no matter what!

    Boys are so fun! I have 3, and mine are never quiet! lol I too am thinking about next year..I wish I had a team though. I am at a rural school and I am the only K teacher. Good luck with your new team. Thanks for always doing this fun linky! You rock!

  74. Blah blah blah blah blah ... We were opposites this time because I usually forget it was the first of the month, but just this once, I remembered and checked in here earlier so that I could get my Currently ready - and it wasn't up yet. Hah! I am totally with you on the weight loss goal! I was doing so well earlier this year. I had lost 15 pounds! And then... put 5 back on. I need to get back with it! I don't have any knee problems, but I do get back problems when I'm too heavy, so I understand.

  75. Blah blah blah...First, yes...we read your posts! Second, I thought I would go ahead and reply to your comment here... ;) Yes, I'm in SM, but I'm just up the road! We could SOO meet up and chat about writing! You know I'll be posting lots about writing...so just stay tuned...and you can direct your new teammates to my blog. Any chance you'll be going to a Gretchen Bernabei workshop this sumer? I'll be there with lots of student samples and answering questions from teachers about implementation of her strategies. Good luck next year!!

  76. Blah, blah, blah! I am glad to know that I am not the only one who has life happen and forgets about my poor little blog. I need to make sure my boys don't see this post though because they might be jealous that you actually made breakfast for your son - I just yelled out to mine, "Don't spill the milk!" this morning as they poured their cereal. You are making me look like a slacker! Enjoy your summer!

  79. Blah, blah, blah... You crack me up. I don't know you from Adam, but it feels like I do :) I love the "voice" in your blog. I am going to... try to... hope to... link up before the month of June is over. I have two weeks, more or less, to go in school and it is everything. I. can. do. just. to post a comment here, let alone post on my own blog. People say I am high energy, but they have no idea what a mushy slug I would be if I did not have the summer to rejuvenate and think of other THINGS!!!! That being said, several of the "things" for this summer are for next school year, of course... it is a sickness :P Kathleen at Kidpeople Classroom

  80. Blah, blah, blah! :) Yes, I always read your posts, Farley. They make me smile. :) My son is almost 12, and he STILL runs through the house at night with his light saber, pretending to attack the dog (for which he gets scolded.) I don't think he'll ever stop. :)

  82. Blah, blah, blah! I love your blog. Your Darth Vader would get along well in our neighborhood. We have a dozen boys who carry light sabers at all times.

    ...and I screwed up the linky party... was perusing the Pre-K and K blog roll, and then accidentally linked my Currently post there. Sigh. Sorry for the trouble, and thanks for hosting!

  86. Blah.... blah... blah!! :) I have had a new team all 4 years of teaching, and next year will be no different! You will get through and mesh with your new team and your year will be great! I know how hard it can be to let things steal your joy, but it sounds like you're on the right track by taking time for yourself this summer!! :)

  87. Blah! Blah! Blah! I envy you your little Darth Vader. Mine graduated from high school this year. Hope all goes well with your knee, it is very frustrating when you want to be active and can't.

  88. blah, blah, blah, hahaha too funny! You're so inspirational! I hate running, but see how you've become such a runner. Did you always run or did you start walking? I need to do the same... :/

  89. Blah blah blah- you crack me up! I LOVE house hunting. And I love selling! It's like winning! But....I hate packing. EW. Sorry two of your teammates are leaving. Maybe you'll get two more amazeballs teammates! You could always do the Arbonne Challenge like I did last year. 28 days! I liked it so much I tried more of their products and now I sell!

  90. Blah blah blah- Now see what you did?! Look at all the comments you have to read! Ha! Like that's a chore! I can't believe how many people (including me) stalk your blog on the first and how many people have already linked up! CRA-ZY!!! I'm moving from first grade to third grade (I think) next year, so i'll really stalk your blog next year!!! Thanks!!!

  91. Blah blah blah- I am currently dealing with a injured ankle myself and recently finished therapy on a knee that I had surgery for years ago. I am in the same boat in respect of losing weight and selling my house. I haven't found the next house (actually haven't decided on where to move) but I love house hunting and decorating.

  92. BLAH, BLah, Blah!! lol!
    Love your post! Hang in there about the new team mates. I teach elementary music and us specialists are always jealous and wish we had "real" team mates.

    Fun sounds from your 5 year old! My 4 and 6 year old have been at each other's throats, ugh!

    My new years resolution was to get in better shape soooooo a former teacher that I taught with is now a personal traininer. It's so great. I wish you the best of luck, you can do it!!!

  93. Blah, blah, blah, blah!!! Thank you for hosting this amazing linky!!!! Just like you, I will definitely be missing my kiddos! The one nice thing about being a music teacher is I get to see them for 6 years in a row! But I did get teary eyed as my 5th graders were walking out the door! But summer is calling my name! On to relaxing, creating, and crafting!

  98. Blah blah blah...yes I actually read! You Gma sounds like the jam...I want to go on that trip too! I hope you can meet your summer goals. I know with a right mind set and hard dedication you can do it. I love that your son is playing Star Wars! More kids need to imagine and play without toys and gimmicks. Also I feel like this will totally be my house one day...my husband will join in that play. Hope you are having a wonderful June! :)

  101. Blah Blah Blah Whatever....I live in Heat and beach country. Yup! Miami Heat. I found your blog and I loved reading it. I had to rub in the Heat comment. I just checked the score and I should probably curb my enthusiasm, as the Heat are losing at this moment. It is early in the game. I teach Kindergarten and Third this year. One more half day!!! Next year I am teaching Kindergarten everything, third and fourth math and science only. How is this happening? I teach in a day school where the other half is Jewish studies. I don't really have a same grade level team, but we are small enough that we support each other. My assistant is leaving to get married, so I feel my right arm is being torn off. I hope your new team appreciates you! You seem like you make work fun! What curriculum do you use? I have been trying to research ones that are useful, but my wheels are just spinning. BTW we have a pool. Get one its the best!

  102. Blah Blah Blah...You my friend are very funny and I LOVE to read all you posts! I too will be in a new team next year. I am moving from 6th grade math to 7th grade science. Good luck with your new team, any team will be lucky to have you! Thanks for hosting one of the best linkys out there!

  105. Blah, blah, blah! I am a new blogger, 11 days to be exact. I have totally jumped into this new world and found your "Currently" blog entry! I absolutely love. Of course that got me to reading more of your entries and love it! I am your newest follower and would love for you to follow me and give me feedback. Good luck with your new team. Looks like you are a natural leader and will be doing a great job regardless.

  107. Blah Blah Blah ... I am LOVING your blog, your ideas, and your creative personality! I, too, am attempting to lose some weight, and I know diet is a big part of the weight loss game.
