Currently: The Love Edition

It's a new month, and with that comes Farley's Monthly Currently Linky!

I am so happy to be joining in for the second time!  

Listening to NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me.  I just went on an 8 mile run (I don't mean to brag.....but I do mean to brag because I have never.ever.ever ran that long in all of my life.ever......please excuse my rudeness).  I was able to get 2 entire segments in while running.  I'll let you do the math in order to figure out my mile pace......I'm bettin it was S-L-O-W!  Nevertheless, it kept me laughing as I was dying barely moving running.

Loving that it's February...the love month.  I don't even like pink, red, or heartsie things *gasp* but for some reason, I am really getting into it this year!  I even used pink and red colors for my font!  That is a HUGE step for me!

Thinking about my 8 mile run....but I already told you about that.  (There I go again, bragging....)  But what I will tell you is that in the beginning of my run, I passed these two sweet older ladies, and when I was almost done with my run, I passed them again.  They looked at me and said "Wait?  No Way!?"  And gave me a little thumbs up!  It made me feel good inside knowing I had impressed two older ladies.

Wanting to buy EVERYTHING on my wishlist from TPT tomorrow, but I know that would break the do you narrow it down?

Needing to go up to the school, but considering how I cannot exactly move my body (due to my 8 mile run....ooops! Bragging again.)  I might be looking at an afternoon of laundry lesson planning  blog stalking and laying around.

Pet Peeves Have you ever had to walk in the rain and the back of your jeans get a little wet?  Then when you take off your shoes inside, your socks get wet from your sloshy jeans?  I H*A*T*E that!  Or when you step in something wet....we'll just say in the kitchen....with only your socks on.  Then you have ONE wet sock!  goshdarnit.

Link up here!

PS We are having a "Secret Admirer  Or "Secret Cupid" at school with all of the teachers starting on Tuesday.  It will last until Valentine's Day.  
The idea is to leave notes of encouragement and something sweet to eat each day.  I'm on the sunshine committee and cannot wait to get this new tradition rolling!  Doesn't everyone want to be encouraged for all of their hard work? 

What are you doing to show the ones you love that you love 'em? 


  1. Just found Currently!
    and I love you "Secret Cupid"...maybe I could call it "Blind Date" hmmm I too am on our school's Sunshine Committee, I might steal your idea girly!

  2. I LOVE the "secret cupid" idea as well. My sis and I are on Sunshine, so we'll have to share this great idea! Thanks to Farley's linky, we're your newest followers!!

  4. Just found you through this month's Currently! I'm in awe of your 8 mile run this morning. I loathe running, but have huge respect for those who do it! I think I'll live vicariously through you. ;)

    Happy shopping on TPT tomorrow!

  5. I found you through Farley's "Currently" and am now your latest follower! Congrats on the 8 mile run;if I had run that far, or even 8 feet, I'd be bragging too! Happy Super shopping day tomorrow! I cannot wait! :-) Lauren Teacher Mom of 3

  7. I wrote about the same pet peeve! It snowed here this week and my wonderful hubby *sometimes* forgets there is a rug to take his boots off on... and then someone (let's just say me) innocently walks by the door on my way to the kitchen in just socks... and then... I get inspiration for this months prompt, haha!

  8. I do not like wet socks either. Here lately at my house, if my socks are wet, I am not a happy camper...the wet socks are an indicator that my precious puppy tinkled on my floor again. grrrr!!!

  9. HA! Wet socks ARE disgusting! Having a secret Cupid at school is awesome! I will be sharing that tomorrow at our staff meeting, see if there's any interest! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I completely agree about the wet socks. So disgusting!

    We do secret pals all year (just started it before Christmas for the first time this year), so I need to think of something cute. I'm thinking of making something sweet.

    If I ran for 8 miles, I'd be bragging all over the place, too! That's awesome! Doesn't matter how long it took you.

    Don't Let the Teacher Stay Up Late

  11. Thanks for stopping by my blog! My husband loves that NPR show...I also love your idea about having secret admirers at work! We could definitely use something positive like that at my school.

  12. I found your blog through Farley's Currently Linky. It's great to find another running teacher blogger:-D I am training for a 1/2 marathon. The farthest I've ever gone is 6 miles. The weather here is killing my motivation to run. Below 0 temps, sleet, no treadmill...makes it really hard to train some times. UGH! BUT!! I love the secret cupid idea!!! This time of year can just drag on!

    We are ALL Special!
