Currently... It's July!!! WHAT!???!?!

What the hey?  Who the what? Could someone please explain to me what happened to June!!!  Yesterday we were all friendly and today...gone!!!

I can---not---believe---1 month is already GONE!  Gone, I tell you!

So I am hoping I am getting a little empathy here, because the hubs won't hear of it.

He says I'm whiny.

He says real people jobs don't get 8 weeks!

He says he WISHED he got 8 weeks!

Well mister...don't confuse me with the FACTS!!!!  Summer is slipping through my hands...aaarrgh!!

Good news though!  I LOVE MY JOB!!!! so it's perfectly fine that I'll be going back in a few short weeks.

But too bad for me because I will have to break up with my bed, my pajamas, my coffee cup, my tv shows, my books, and ALL the other SUMMER LOVES!!!!

So to cheer myself up on this July eve (it's technically 3:55 am July 1st!) I went shopping! it was on my computer and it was BACK-TO-SCHOOL shopping, but! explain it's our July Currently!

Peace and quiet.  That's a RARE commodity around here in the summer.  My 2 boys play, argue, play, yell, play (which involves running, stomping, wrestling...) ALL day long.  Which is a good thing, right?  BUT not so quiet!

Just got back from a week at the beach.  We went to Santa Rosa beach which is a quiet little beach town between Destin and Panama City, Fla.  The hubs DOES NOT, I repeat DOES NOT, like high rises so I am always on the lookout for a quiet vacay that's not out in the middle of tim-buck-too (I TOTALLY spelled that phonetically because I have NO IDEA how it's really spelled and it's 4:00 am for the love of Pete so I am not gonna google it to find out!)  Santa Rosa Beach is just gorgeous!  Beautiful water, RIGHT on the ocean, glass windows COVERING the front of the condo.  AND they have 20 miles of bike trails so the whole FAM rode bikes almost every day.  And...did I happen to mention there maybe was a "Blue Mountain Creamery" about a block away  that had AWESOME homemade ice cream?  Maybe we ate there a time or two, or three!! ;)

So what kind of shopping did I do at 3:30 in the morning?  Well I got the most EXCELLENT class decor pack from Hope King on TpT!  It's polka dots, and chalkboard, and chevron, OH MY!  LOVE!!!!  I am vowing to up the cuteness factor in my room this year!

Nuf said.  ENJOY SUMMER...but for the love of productive!

Who on God's green earth thought that I needed ONE MORE summer distraction to keep me away from the whole "Be PRODUCTIVE" thing?  Well...apparently my friend Dawn!  I swear...I blame her fully and totally for my Candy Crush addiction. here's how it's her fault if you are wondering!  I was being really productive and know...playing Words with Friends.  (Well that's SORTA productive right, because I have to use my brain and keep my geezer self in mental shape, yeah?)  And so I NUDGE her because, well, I was driving back from said vacay and I was slap bored and I needed some games to play.  Well what do you know, she sent me a message that said...and I quote "Stop nudging me.  I am cracking out on Candy Crush!" know where that led to.

Me:  What's Candy Crush?"
Dawn:  DO NOT START PLAYING it!  It is ADDICTIVE!  Save yourself.
Me: click click click (that's me on my iphone searching this mysterious Candy Crush app!) we are!  Addicted!  Sad, but true!

    Hey, btw. I will be teaching Kindergarten this year -- I'm so excited to stalk your blog and steal all of your cute ideas! :)

    1. Aww! You always make me smile Samantha! How are you liking your new home? Are all your pups happy and healthy? I swear I stink at CC, but I can't stop playing. I don't think I have it figured out yet. I am always running out of lives and having to WAIT!!! Arrh!

      That's awesome! Will you be in the same school? You will LOVE the littles!!! We have a ton of free stuff in our store and on our blog. Let me know if we can do ANYTHING to help you get set up. How about I email you our 1st CC math pack FREE!!!! We use the math packs to teach ALL of our CC math. The packs are popular so hopefully they'll work for you.

      Or you know what, would you rather have our Back to School Lessons and Activities Mega Pack for K? Just let me know...a little WELCOME to K from us!

    2. You are so sweet!! The pups are all doing well. They are loving having their momma home for summer break!

      I will be at a new school in a new district, but it's my dream district so I'm very excited!

      I would absolutely LOVE your back to school pack! Thanks for the warm welcome!! My email is

    3. So stinkin' happy for you! Just emailed out the pack!

  4. You tell that hubs of yours that most real people jobs don't require getting snot on your outfit almost every day, tying kids' shoes that might possibly have pee from the bathroom floor on them, having parents call you past 5pm, and while most get a lunch break we usually spend our lunch breaks opening milks and go-gurts, etc, etc. LOL! So you totally deserved a summer break even though I feel like it ends as soon as it begins. Oh & I am so with you- summer time means love affair with my bed, sleeping in late, staying up late, and all the day time shows :) I hope you are having a great summer!!!
