June Currently!

I have never done a "Currently", so I'm pretty excited about this!  I'm linking up with Farley from Oh Boy Fourth Grade with this month's Currently.  So, here goes!

Since the kids are in bed, it's my turn to get the television, so I'm watching Rachel Maddow.  Love how smart she is.  (And how excited she gets about geeky stuff.)

The weather has cooled off here in Georgia, so I'm able to have the windows open today!  Unfortunately, June will return tomorrow with its tropical moisture, and we'll be back to A/C and sweating.

I go back to work 8 weeks from tomorrow!  Crazy, right?  So, I'm already starting to think about my themes for next year and what I need to do to get prepared.

My ten year old is off to Boy Scout Camp this week!  It's his first time away from home for this long, and I'm pretty nervous.  We haven't gotten a phone call yet to come and get him, so I'm thinking he's probably having a good time.  He'll be home on Saturday, and it can't come soon enough.  My twelve year old leaves Sunday for the same camp (they're in different troops).  He went last year and had a great time, so I won't worry quite as much about him.  :-)

I was able to get out and walk around the neighborhood for a half hour, but now I need some water.  I'm too lazy to get up off of the couch, though.

I've decided that this summer is the year I finally get my house organized.  We're thinking about moving next summer, and we all know how busy the school year is, so if it doesn't happen this summer, my house will never get organized.  I'm also trying to lose 15 to 20 pounds.  Hence the walking today.  Hoping that next fall, I'll go back to school at least two sizes smaller!


  1. Hooray to your first Currently! I'm already thinking about plans for next Fall too. (I'm glad I'm not the only one!)

    1. Seriously, do teachers ever stop thinking about school?

  2. Yay! I just did my first Currently, too! Isn't it crazy that school is just 8 weeks away?! We aren't even on summer break yet with our numerous snow days in Indiana. Good luck on your planning! I also think it is a good sign that your son hasn't called. I am sure he is having a blast and will have lots of great stories to tell you when he gets back! I am so happy to visit your blog! Cute blog by the way :)

    1. Ironically, the camp called just after I hit "Post". He was in the Medical clinic with a stomach ache (which I'm chalking up to homesickness). I haven't heard from him today, so I'm hoping he's gotten into the routine of camp and isn't feeling as bad. It's hard to send my boy away for a week!

  3. Congrats on your first currently! I agree with you...if something doesn't happen during the summer, it isn't going to happen! Sad but true! :) So glad I found your blog!
