July Currently

I can't believe it's July already!  That means great sunny weather with lots of family time, and trips to Las Vegas for the TpT Conference and to Maine to help our daughter move in to her house for grad school.

I am officially retired and am probably going to be busier than ever now!  I'm excited to get to spend time creating more teaching materials that will help save teachers time.  So excited!
Listening:  My daughter and I like watching The Bachelorette (and Bachelor) together. I'll sure miss her when she goes to Maine in August and I have to watch it by myself!

Loving:  I "officially" retired from working 8 am - 4 pm BUT not from staying connected and making products for teachers!  This means I get to work for myself...on my own schedule...on my own time and I am SO EXCITED!  I will probably seriously be busier than ever now but I LOVE IT!

Thinking:  I am super excited to attend the TpT Conference in Vegas next week!  Yikes.  It's coming up so quickly.  I can't wait to listen to the amazing teachers I've been blogging with and following.  

Wanting:  Our Golden is a sweetheart and is so smart but he uses that to his advantage!  It's time to get serious about training him to come when WE want him to...not when HE wants to!

Needing:  When our daughter moves out and heads from Oregon to Maine for grad school (physical therapy) she will be gone for three years and possibly forever.  We have to do a serious clean out. This summer is it!

4th Plans:  My family will all come over for a big BBQ at our house and we'll hang out on the back deck spending time together.  Maybe we'll head to the main street of town for the annual 4th of July parade wearing some red, white and blue.

So, how about You?  What are YOU doing currently?  Head over to Oh Boy Fourth Grade and link up!
