Currently December

I deserve a big ol' pat on the back.....because....I am actually linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade on the correct day for her linky party.

I am So. Proud. Of. Myself!!

Listening--I am currently listening to Monday Night I have said before....sports are ALWAYS on at my house.  And....I am okay with that!

Loving-- Today the hubs and I made a quick stop at Dollar Tree after school.  He needed to pick up some cheap playing cards for a math game he is going to play with his kiddos tomorrow (more on that later.)  I wanted to find some **cheap** kitchen timers. You see...I use timers A LOT in my classroom--and the ones I have are kinda on their last leg!

I didn't actually think Dollar Tree would have kitchen timers, and I wasn't really looking forward to buying several timers for $8-$10 a pop .  BUT--much to my surprise--Dollar Tree did have timers!!  WOOOOO HOOOOO----and they were only a buck!!  Yessssssss!!

I'll let you know how well they work after I use them!

Thinking--Tomorrow Rudy begins her training to become a licensed therapy dog! If you want to know more, read about it here! I have so many emotions going through me---excitement, nervousness, pride.....I just can't wait for her to begin touching the lives of the students at VCIS!  Wish me (and Rudy) luck tomorrow!

Wanting-- To see Mockingjay! Has anyone seen it??  Is it good??

Needing--Time to go Christmas shopping!  I have barely done any shopping for the holidays---and it is beginning to stress me out a wee bit!


Yes, that's right.....I am giving fart in a can to my secret buddy.

Before you judge---I think he is going to love it, and my goal is to make my secret buddy smile!  Have you heard about the secret buddy program?  If not read about it here!


  1. Hi, Katie! First and foremost... your dog is GORGEOUS. I had a few friends who had therapy dogs as well-- and I absolutely love everything about them. As for Dollar Tree, timers?! Awesome. I will see how yours work before I head there, because they can come in handy for a plethora of uses. Thank you so much for your comments at my blog... and I am very excited to now be your newest follower as well! - Victoria (

  2. Your dog is so cute! I can already tell that Rudy will be an awesome therapist! :)

    I am stressing out about my holiday shopping, too. Deep breaths. We can do this!!

  3. Thanks for inspiring me to update my blog! You are awesome!

  4. Found you through Farley's linkup! Mockingjay was soooo good! You should definitely check it out! I also love the dollar tree. I get excited with all the deals I find there!
