December Sneaked Up on Me!

Nothing screams the beginning of a new month like posting your monthly CURRENTLY. Once again I am linking up with Oh'  Boy Fourth Grade for the December CURRENTLY. 

As I began completing my December CURRENTLY, a notification to watch Brooke Brown on Periscope popped. I found the scope beneficial, and I scribbled down a few notes to improve my literacy centers. Before Brooke's scope, I was listening to the Vince Guaraldi Trio (Holiday) Radio on Pandora. 

Truth be told, I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year...the most wonderful time of the year. I love the sights, sounds, and smells of the holiday season. You can read all about my holiday faves here.  Although this time of year makes my heart sing, there's nothing like the holidays to reinforce the fact...I'M STILL SINGLE at 42. And according to the society, I have failed in life. But one of the benefits of being single during the holidays, I don't have to share my wine. 

So many TPT ideas trapped in my brain. I need 28 hours in the day. The extra four will be set aside for creating...or napping.

Self Explanatory.

I need to PRIORITIZE. I wasted too much time during my Thanksgiving break week. I intended to complete TPT products, blog, etc. Instead I napped, shopped, and socialized. I squeezed in some time for a couple of blog posts, but I wanted to write several blog posts, in order to schedule posts throughout the week.  Although I failed to meet my blogging quota, I am proud of a motivational post I wrote about strippers. 

I managed to start a few TPT products, but I wanted to finish the products before the TPT sale. Didn't happen.

Real or Faux
Faux. I am too lazy to deal with the rigmarole that's accompanied with a real tree. Currently my tree is in a box and that's probably where it will stay. This meme captures my feelings about a Christmas tree this year...


  1. I'm with you on so many of these! I absolutely love holiday music and definitely need to spend some time prioritizing and organizing because Thanksgiving break was not as productive as hoped. I hopped over and read the motivational post on strippers. I love the idea of learning from the people we least expect it from. Everyone has something they can teach us. I hope you enjoy this holiday season!


  2. I love using Literacy Centers in my class and wish I knew about her Periscope from yesterday. My district wants us to move towards Reader's Workshop and way from Literacy Centers, which I'm up in the air about honestly. My plan is to blog about the two after I learn a bit more about Reader's Workshop and how to effectively incorporate it into my classroom.

    LOL at your loving...I hope you find Mr. Right at the right time. I enjoy wine myself and definitely don't like to share it sometimes.

    I don't feel as though I ever have enough time to create products either unless it's during the holidays. So hopefully you and myself will be able to get more done during the Christmas break.


  3. Love your tree! Oh and thanks for sharing your stripper post! LOL

  4. I have just downloaded iStripper, so I can watch the sexiest virtual strippers get naked on my desktop.
