Currently January 2015

It's hard to believe that 2014 is almost over!  Mainly because, on breaks from school, I can't keep track of what day of the week it is, let alone the date!  Haha!

Thanks to Farley, I know that it is time for the Currently January linkup!  Here's my Currently....


It's 39 degrees here! I have a fire going to keep us all warm and toasty!

Add The Walking Dead marathon to that, and it's a pretty perfect day!


Now that all the Christmas festivities are over, I'm loving all the relaxation time.  My fur babies are getting pretty spoiled.  I mean, the dogs haven't had to spend more than an hour outside since school got out.

They pretty much have claimed their place on the couch next to me and rarely move.


In order to supplement our amazing (hehe!) teacher pay, I am also the registrar for our city's soccer league.  And registration opens tomorrow.  

January is going to be crazy busy.  Soccer, soccer, soccer.  And I don't even know anything about the sport...except that there are some pretty cute players in the big leagues!  

This is my first (of hopefully many) seasons.  Wish me luck.


My boyfriend to hurry up and get over here so I have someone to enjoy this TWD marathon with me. And look who showed up as I was writing this...

Wahoo!!!  He's here!


This couch is my best friend.  Seriously.  It never does me wrong, contours to my needs, and keeps me warm and comfortable.  

But, I need to put some space between us.  

There are dishes to do, laundry to put away, a junk room to clean, and, not to mention, an expanding waistline occurring.

It's for the best, my dear couch.  I promise.

Yes, Maybe, I Wish...

Yes to getting healthier.  I have a meal plan ready for next week.  Working out is going to be super important.  And I have my "3 Weeks No Cheats" up from For Blogness' Sake to help wipe out some of my bad habits.  Pray for me, please.

Maybe (*wink) I need to expand my comfort zone.  I have my family, my couple of friends, etc.  Everything I do is within a very clearly defined bubble that I have created.  New people make me nervous and I'm not great with small talk.  But I need to really work on getting outside my comfort zone.  God put all these amazing people on this earth, and I need to meet them!

I wish that I could write a book.  I am a book consumer.  It's a problem.  I probably read about 10 books a month.  It would be so amazing to actually write a book.  One that people enjoy reading as much as I enjoy reading all the books that I do.  Hopefully, one day I will!!!

Head over to the Currently January 2015 link up to have some fun!


  1. Oh, the comfy couch!!! How lucky we are to have a week or two to practice being instead of doing. Have fun and good luck in the new year.

    1. We are so lucky! Have a great new year!

  2. I'm your newest follower! I want to be like you...find time to read! During the summer I read at least like you do, but I just can't seem to find the time to do that during the school year. Enjoy the rest of your break!

    1. Thank you! I will have to say, it is easier for me to find time to read since I don't have children! Summer is definitely a bigger reading time for me. It's when I read all the adult books! During the school year, I read the YA books that my students like!

  3. I know what you mean about spoiling the fur babies! We have one that I am loving spending all of my time with! It's going to be hard to go back! :)

  4. Oh my gosh! My husband keeps asking me how much I've spent on books this break because he's seen how many I've read. It's bad. I put on my Currently that I'd love to write a book as well. If you ever want to bounce any ideas around, I'm always looking for writing friends!

    1. Scholastic is a huge weakness of mine! Just from this year, I already need to buy a new bookshelf! :) I'm lucky that my Kindle is linked to my dad's, so I get all the books he buys!
