I Can't Believe it is July! (almost)

Seriously, where did the time go!? It seems like just last week I was getting out of school and packing up my room. This happens every year and summer just needs to SLOW. DOWN. I mean, I don't even have any notion of a tan, yet!

That being said, I have had A LOT of time this summer to find new bloggers to stalk follow, especially through bloglovin, that I stumbled upon the link for Farley's Currently Link Up. Seriously, like 75% of the blog posts I have to read today are linked up with her, and I don't like being left out of a good party, so here I am!

My husband and I are both teachers. Therefore, we are both off for the summer at the same time. He likes to relax by playing video games with friends...I can't stand it, solely because of the noises that emanate from his computer! It's ridiculous, and I seriously don't wish it on anyone. For reals.

SUMMERTIME! I have not done near as many fun things that I had hoped for already (Let's be real, I have spent a TON of time on my classroom for next year--one of my favorite things to do in the summer!), but I did get to have a fun girls night at the New Kids on the Block CONCERT! Also in attendance were Boys 2 Men and 98 Degrees...It was awesome!

Also - can I just say how much I am LOVING the giveaways going on at The School Supply Addict's blog?? Simply ah-mazing, and today is the last get on over there to enter!

There is something so wonderful about teaching in that you get a new group of kids each year, a clean slate, if you will. I have the opportunity of teaching a new grade level on a new campus, so it is almost like the first year of teaching all over again - you know, without the learning curve! There are so many new things I want to implement in my new room that I have overflowing lists all over the house! I can't wait to really get started...after the summer, of course!

Seriously, I never get sick. I mean the last time I was sick had to have been over 3 years ago, before my husband and I even got engaged...until now. I have had this cold that has gotten progressively worse since Wednesday, so we are going on DAY 5! I should buy stock in Kleenex. And vitamin C. I HATE not being able to breathe.

My plan this summer was to deep clean one area of the house each day so that it would be uncluttered and neat. I technically am not failing at this task because I haven't started, right? Tomorrow--that sounds like a good time to start!

How do you get over summer colds? Help me out by leaving a comment below--I am desperate!

Have a great Sunday,


  1. I feel like summer is flying by too! Hope you feel better soon so you can enjoy what is left of it!

  2. I have no good tips on getting over the summer cold, but when all else fails, I end up sweating it out - just get busy, go ahead and deep clean something - all that moving around usually means I can breath again!!

    I'll be a first year teacher next year, and I've spent a ton of time in my room already - love it, too - but I had no small hint of a tan, either!

    1. Good luck in your first year! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you get started!

  3. Summer colds are the worst! At least you don't have to deal with it while teaching. My boys play video games and it drives me crazy. Good luck on planning for your new class. I teach 7th grade math in WI.

    1. Sherrie, I was thinking the SAME thing - at least I don't have to take sick days!

  4. Advice: Listen to your body! Relax, rest, drink a lot of fluids, take vitamin C & let yourself be sick. Perhaps this will cheer you up: I just bought 5 of your learning task cards from TpT!!! You are a really talented teacher & as a homeschool mom from Riverdale, New York, I thank you for your creativity! You are the first TpT that I have "followed" & I'm always so happy to see the new things that you are selling. Feel good & pamper yourself. Forget deep cleaning until you are feeling well. Hope I am not being too pushy with my advice.

    Your fan,

  5. Leah - you absolutely have made my day. Thank you so much for your sweet words! I am doing just that - relaxing and catching up on TV...gotta love trashy summer reality shows!

    Please let me know if there is every anything I can create for you!

  6. I hope you feel better soon. Rest and drink lots of water and catch up on all those TV shows you are too busy to watch in the school year.

  7. Hope you are feeling better! I found your blog on 3rd Grade Theatrics as well! You have a terrific blog! Keep up the great work and feel better!

  8. haha i just LOVE your stalk no follow comment! :) It's just like that isn't it.
    Cleaning... ahh I couldn't agree more. We just spent all day today cleaning because we sanded out floors back so there was dust EVERYWHERE! Up walls, INSIDE cupboards.. ARAGGHHHH lol! 'Winter' cleaning just sounds weird here in Aus lol
