February Currently {Linky}

I am linking up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade for February Currently!!!! 


Not really to much in the background!!  Just the T.V. going and Shark Tank is on.   The girls are already in the bed and the Hubs is at a friend's house.  So it is pretty quite around here {a rare moment, I might add}!


The Hubs and I will finally get a date night tomorrow!  It is our first one in months and it is very much needed.  We actually had it scheduled a few weeks ago, but then the flu attacked our household.  I am so happy for some grown up couple time.  I am not even sure what the plans are yet, but as long as it does not involve kids running around me in circles I am happy!!!


I have really been a slacker with blogging lately.  Between everyone getting sick at my own house and this cold weather keeping me trapped in my classroom ALL day long with kiddos, I am completely worn out by the end of the day.  I wish I could have had a few snow days.  I live in the northern part of Louisiana so the snow went to the south of me.  I was so bummed, I was hoping for a few days off.  It has  just been cold enough that we can't have any outside recess and if it is not too cold then it is raining.  I am ready for warmer weather.  


My "Thinking" above leads into my "Wanting".  I am so over all this cold weather.   I am ready for a little warm up.   I know most of my buddies up north are probably a little more use to this colder weather, but down here this is really, really  unusually cold for us.  Don't get me wrong we have our occasional cold days, but it feels like it is just lingering.  And to think it is only February!!! 


I have been doing fairly well with all my New Year's Resolutions, except working out.   I could count on both hands, ok probably just one, the amount of times I have worked out.  I really need to try and get more motivated.  I am going to blame it on all this weather and being cooped up with kids all day - ha!!!   I know that is such a copout, and I was just joking.  I totally take all the blame.   Well February is a new month and a new start.

2 Truths and a Fib:

1.  I have one foot that is slightly bigger than the other.  When I buy shoes, my right shoe is always really tight until I stretch it out with normal wear.
2.   I am not big on eating any sweets.  Don't get me wrong, I love the occasional piece of cake or candy, but I really have to be in the mood for it.  It is not one of my weaknesses.  Now carbs on the other hand, that is a different story.
3.  My fib:  I am pretty good at looking like I have it together {most of the time}.  People always tell me how organized I am.   But the truth:   I am really organized, but sometimes I feel like I am running in circles.   I just keep smiling and going because as a mom, wife, and teacher that is just what we do!!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!  Be sure to link up, I can't wait to read your Currently!!!



  1. ooooh the flu... yuck that hit our house too
    hope you have a great date night... it is always nice to get out and have adult time
    thanks so very much for linking up

  2. We have Shark Tank recorded here but have been too comfy by the fire to go watch it. I love that show; it always inspires me to think outside the box! Also, I'm totally with you on that carb craving thing... especially in the form of french fries!!!

  3. Haha, no one has it all together. I think we all just pray that it all goes well. But I have a feeling you aren't giving yourself as much credit as you should, that is a flaw us women seem to have. =) Just relax and enjoy your night with your man tomorrow! =) You DESERVE it!

  4. Yay for a date night! That sounds fun.

    We've watched Shark Tank a couple times and enjoyed it, but I always forget it's on.

  5. Enjoy date night and your peaceful evening with everyone asleep!

  6. Oh how i wish I didn't like sweets! I need to make that a resolution. I'm ready for warm weather too. It is just mild and humid here. Pick cold or hot, but not this weird stuff!

  7. Ok first, I KNOW I've told you this before, but I ADORE your blog. LOVE…and second, people are always telling me that I look like I have it alllll together all the time, too, and there are times when I'm so overwhelmed that all I want to do it cry!! ahh!! We need a support group! <3 happy Saturday!

  8. Hey there--- Love your blog Thanks for sharing your currently February! I think that so many of us feel like we don't have it together.... even when it looks like we do. That's all part of it. At least you appear calm, cool and collective on the outside even if you're not feeling it on the inside. That's half the battle in my mind! :) Have so much fun on your much needed date night. I think I'm going to have to make one of those happen soon. This cold weather just has us in a funk!!! Enjoy!
