Currently February

It has been sooooo long since I have linked up for a Currently, or even blogged for that matter.  Life is busy (sigh).

Feb Currently

Laundry… is never ending.  I have a system that is helping it go faster for me though.  In my closet I have 4 baskets and we sort the clothes as we go during the week.  Then, on Friday nights before I go to bed, I grab my daughters’ baskets and sort those into the baskets in my closet so that I can start laundry first thing Saturday morning.  I am always up at least 2 hours before everyone else in my house on the weekends, it’s my quiet time!  I can usually have a few loads done before the rest of the family is even up!

We discovered a new hiking trail a few weeks ago and we have gone every Sunday since.  My girls love it and we get to spend quality time together and get exercise!



I have a lot of work to get done this weekend.  We have our Famous American Wax Museum coming up this week.  120 third graders will be set up on display in the hallways of our school.  This year’s event will be even bigger and better!  We are doing it in the evening so that we can put them on display along the hallways and make it more like a “real,” museum!  I will be sure to blog about it next week!  It is by far one of our favorite days as teachers!


My husband and I have NEVER left our children to go on a trip just the two of us.  Can you believe that?!  It’s not that we haven’t ever wanted to, life just gets busy.  Finances are always tight.  I could go on and on.  Anyways, we are finally going somewhere!  He has a former basketball player who is playing D1 college basketball in Texas.  A few weeks ago he texted and said that his Senior Night was coming up and that if my husband could make it he wants him to walk out on the court with him for his introduction!  No way am I letting him miss that!  And of course someone needs to be there to take lots of pics!!!  So, I found a cute blue and white chevron shirt…….


Now I want to find a cute orange necklace to wear with it.  Not my first choice in color combinations but it’s the school colors! 


I NEED to go for a run this morning and do some weights.  I have a few weeks and I NEED to fit into my jeans comfortably.  I really can’t afford to buy a new pair right now!

2 Truths and A Fib…….

1.  True….I did meet Johnny Depp when I was in junior high.  At a car show in Hartford, Connecticut.  It was back during his 21 Jump Street days and I had just a teeny tiny crush on him!
2.  True….When I was 3, my dad played on his company softball team.  I was at his game with my cute little NY Yankees ball cap on and my softball glove on my hand.  My dad was rolling the ball to me to “catch,” and a photographer snapped a picture.  It ran in papers all over the country as filler.  My mom got clippings and letters from people in Ohio and California.  It was my brief 15 minutes of fame and I was too young to enjoy it Winking smile!

3.  Fib…..I really don’t like cooking.  I do it because they ask to eat every night!  We are a hard family to feed, lots of food allergies and dietary restrictions.  Coming up with ideas for meals is a chore that I do not enjoy.  If we could eat Chipotle every night we would, but that would get expensive.

  Okay, I’m off to switch out a load of laundry and  put on my running shoes……talk to you all soon!


  1. I guessed your fib right! I also hate cooking :) And am also listening to the dryer right now!

    For the necklace - I love this bubble necklace from ebay, I have it in yellow and blue and am sure it would look great in orange too! (Right now it's only $6 shipping, I got them for twice that! Shipping can be long, but totally worth it for the price!)

  2. How nice your husband was asked to walk the court with a former player of his! Great chance for you both to get away! No matter what, you will look great in that shirt and I'm sure you will find a great necklace. With all that beauty above the belt, the jeans will look fab no matter what!

  3. HA! I'm bogged down with laundry too, but I've accepted the fact that it'll never be caught up. My husband and I have never been away from our 3 girls either, For same reasons you listed. CAN NOT believe you met "Daddy Depp" that's what I call him around here… haha. So fun! Enjoy your trip! Enjoy your family time and the dreaded laundry…

  4. I am so excited that you and your husband get to go on a trip just to the two of you!! My hubby and i are very spoiled and have been able to do a few trips without our kiddos so far. Both of my kids love their grandparents, and I don't know what we would do if they weren't so close!! I hope that you and your husband have an amazing trip! I can't wait to hear about your wax museum too!! It sounds like a great idea, and something I would love to try with my kiddos!! I hope that you get to go hike tomorrow too!!
