Currently May

I can't believe it is already May 2nd. I'm not complaining, I am thrilled. However, there is so much to do this month. My calendar looks like an abstract splatter painting. Anyway...it is time to link up with Farley and let you know what I am currently doing.

Listening to The Chew. It is their Cinco de Mayo show. I think this weekend I might need a margarita to celebrate.

Loving my new treadmill. It arrived last Thursday. I named it Mario Lopez, because it makes me hot and sweaty. I, also, get to say that I am walking with Mario. My goal is to walk/jog at least 30 min. everyday. Currently, I am successful. 

Thinking about next year. I am assuming that I am teaching 4th grade next year, but I don't know if I am going to be part of a 3 way switch, remain with my current partner and teach Language Arts, or get a new partner and teach Math. I am patiently waiting for a decision to be made, but as an obsessive planner I REALLY WANT TO KNOW NOW.  

Wanting new walking shoes. I wonder which ones Mario would like.

Needing to make dinner and grade papers. Enough said!

Organize my files (both paper and computer). I'm pretty organized, but I am bad about filing. After teaching 20 years, I need to toss some of the out of date stuff. I still have some of my Mom's files from when she was a paraprofessional in 1980. I, also, still have some overhead transparencies. I don't think there is even an overhead projector in our building.

Now that I am getting used to exercising daily, I, also, need to organize my diet. 

Happy Pre-Friday! 


  1. "I named it Mario Lopez, because it makes me hot and sweaty." LOL!! I literally busted out laughing when I read that. I love it! I need a treadmill in my house. I go to the gym down the street, but I hate going when they are packed in the afternoon. It's so hard to get a machine! In the winter it's really impossible to run outside here, so I end up skipping workouts. :( BOO!

  2. Mario Lopez....ha! Too funny! I need to organize all my files, too....especially my electronic ones! I'm pretty good about throwing out old papers and such, but am a bit of a digital hoarder...

  3. Found you from Currently!

    Your treadmill name is a HOOT! Seriously- that is funny! I do a lot of work in Texas. I train teachers.
    I wonder what district you are in and if we have ever met? Did you survive the STAAR?

    Organizing- that is a BIG task. I need to do that as well.
