It's Currently February...

How is it already February?  The last month or 2 have really sped by...  won't be long and summer break will be here!  I'm really gifted at summer vacay, y'all!  :)  So... what am I "currently" up to?  I'm linking up with Farley to share...
Listening: to my kiddos playing and laughing on the trampoline with their friends.  They just got home from their weekend with their dad.  Can't believe that my "baby" is 7 years old.  On the day he was born I pulled into the school parking lot and had my first contraction... the school bookkeeper had to drive me to the hospital and I was already almost completely dilated.  Crazy day for sure!  
Loving: I did my 1st food prep today.  I made enough to last almost all week long.  I did a breakfast scramble for breakfast, chicken and spaghetti squash for lunch, steak and sweet potato mash for dinner.  I need to do better and was excited to try something new.  It was the first time I had ever cooked a spaghetti squash... and even the first time I had ever cooked a steak.  Crazy, right?  

Thinking:  of all the things that need to get done.  Trying to find balance in my new circumstances.  My divorce has been final for a month now.  The boys and I have moved and I'm trying to make this house feel more like "home"...  full time teaching, TpT, and working on my gifted endorsement.  I feel like I"m not doing well with any of it.  I have decided that I will think ahead, but that I'm mostly going to take it day by day... and allow myself some grace while I navigate.  

Wanting: for it to be summer already.  I am so ready for some extended time off, a tan, etc.  I already have a week at the beach planned out.... and super STOKED for the TpT Vegas conference in July!  125 days til the beach trip (me, 2 girlfriends and their small humans, and a babysitter)... and only 158 days til Vegas!  
Needing: a clone of myself... see that part above and all that is going on.  I would like to clone myself, but maybe she could have her JUNK together... and get it done for the both of us.  Maybe she could go grocery shopping, write lesson plans, and vacuum?  Maybe?  ;) 

Pageant title: Introverted Princess ...  how funny would that be?  I was in a pageant once when I was in middle school and I won...  looking back I looked hilarious.  Guess it's a good thing I have boys now... not sure I would know what to do with little girls!  

Hope y'all have a great week...  I haven't been so good with blogging consistently, but I do update my FB page pretty often with freebies, jokes, and interesting links.  Have you stopped by yet?  Talk to y'all soon!   


  1. Hey Stacy....I found your blog via Farley's linky party, and I am your newest follower! I am interested to see how your spaghetti squash turned out. I have always wanted to do that....but am too afraid to try it! Was it hard? It seems like so much work!! ha! Enjoy the remaining hours of your Sunday!

  2. I love spaghetti squash . . . I'm the only one in the house, but that's ok. I am so impressed with your food prep! The last few years, the hubs has taken on the cooking/grilling. Very appreciative! The Techie Playground 

  3. Continue to take good care of yourself, and your precious boys! My divorce was final five years ago and my children were in their late teens. Day-by-day is the way to take it, and be sure to invest lots of time into yourself.....because you deserve it! Let that thought and knowledge life you up and remind you when you need it most!

  6. Good job doing food prep! That's a big accomplishment. I have always thought about getting organized and doing that, but have not gotten to it yet.

    Introverted Princess, I like that.

    Have a great week!
