Currently...My 1st one!!!

I never participated in the "Currently" linky.  I'm not sure why, but I had some much needed quiet time this a.m. and thought to myself, "Why not?"  So, here goes...
Now that it's complete, I'm wondering why I've never participated before hmmm...
I guess that could've been my "thinking".
listening:  Puppy love (a.k.a. Possum) woke me up a little earlier than usual and wouldn't go back to sleep. So I found myself awake, and she found herself outside, which gave me some quiet time to myself before the boys got up.  I guess I should also mention that the "man of the house" is currently working 7-12's, which makes everyone's life H. E. DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS!!!!  (If you've never experienced it, make sure you say an exra thank you in your prayers tonite.)  So he was up and outta the house by 5:00am on a Saturday!
loving, wanting, needing:  Outta order, I know, but they need to be lumped together...stick with me here.  I'm loving that Phil didn't see his shadow this a.m. and loving that we're going to have an early Spring.  (I've kinda already got the "fever".  You know the one...Spring Fever!  Seventy degree temps in January will do that to a girl class of 17 kindergarteners!!!)  On the other hand, my whole family is going to Colorado on a ski trip in a couple of weeks.   I'm REALLY wanting and needing a snow day on February 19th, so I don't get docked pay for that day!  I'd appreciate any extra hopes, wishes, prayers, crossed fingers and toes for those in blog land!
thinking:  As I was filling out the form, I found myself enjoying my cup of coffee...savoring every last drop.  I don't usually "think" about how much I enjoy my coffee.  I'm usually drinking it in the car or trying to get it all sucked down before my lil' love muffins walk through the door (b/c we all know that if the coffee gets sat down, it'll be cold before we can get back to it).  I also found myself wondering (which is very similar to thinking) why I have never participated in this linky before.  I've enjoyed it so far.
And finally...
pet peeves: I'm sure this is a pretty common peeve, pajamas in public!  Come on people...REALLY?!?!?!  There is nothing I hate more than going into Hoosier-Mart Wal-Mart (or other shopping establishment) and seeing people in their p.j.'s AND they've obviously been in them a while...we're talking all night and most of the day!  Or those that wear p.j.'s to a restaurant (fast food or casual sit down)...ewwww! OH WAIT, THERE'S MORE...parents that drop their kids off at school AND they're in the p.j.'s.
#1 They made their kid get dressed.
#2 The kid knows their parent is going home to get back into bed or to Wal-Mart.
#3 I had to get up and get dressed to go to my JOB to teach their child so he/she can grow up to be a productive memeber in society.
#4 I just think it sets a bad example!
Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy the occassional Pajama Day at school (2x a year-ish) and it never fails on those days I have to run to the store or stop and get gas!  It makes me shudder to think that there are people that think that is what I wore to bed last night and didn't have the decency to get dressed that day!
I hope you all have a FABulous weekend...remember Spring is just around the corner and cross those fingers and toes for my FEBRUARY 19TH SNOW DAY!!!!


  1. Good luck with the Snow Day. I am also so happy that we're supposed to have an early spring. Although, one of my students told me yesterday, quite seriously, that "groundhogs can't really predict the weather." Ha!

  2. I also just joined the fun with Farley. Good luck with your snow day wishes.

  3. I need a snow day too!

    Loving the part about people in public in their pj's. That drives me nuts, too. The best is seeing parents bringing their kids in super late to school and it's like "Nice of you to roll out of bed this morning!"

  4. I just found your blog! I love the title :) I'm another person that dislikes jammies in public :) LOL

  5. I just found your blog through Farley's linky! =) LOVE your title! PJ's in public, how did I know you were going to bring Walmart into that equation?! It's an everyday thing there, no matter which Walmart you go to in America! Hope you get your snow day! My sis and I are your newest followers!!

  6. I am your newest follower! I love the quiet time I get before my son wakes up. I think because it rarely happens! I only have one boy who is on the go and can only imagine two! I hope you get your snow day!
