It’s Currently January!

Oh my word.  I can’t believe it has been so long since I’ve blogged.  Its been so long that I had to reset my password!  Yikes!  I thought a good jumpstart would be to link up with Farley at Oh’ Boy 4th Grade for January’s Currently.

Currently January 2015I am loving the sound of my three boys playing and causing a ruckus together.  For the most part.  😉  There are pretend guns and putting each other in jail and some spontaneous singing (think three-year-old meets “All About That Bass” in a new rendition called, “Bubba Bass, No Trouble”).  What wonderful sounds!


One of my very favorite gifts this year is a new game.  I adore playing games and was so excited to receive Qwirkle for Christmas.  It is a simple, straight-forward game where there are six colors and six shapes and the goal is to create a line with all of the different colors or shapes without repeating.  My entire family has gotten in on the playing of this.  And we are all in jeopardy of losing to the eight-year-old, to tell you the truth!

I couldn’t believe I hadn’t posted anything since the end of July!  What in the world?!  I’ll tell you.  This school year has been kicking my butt!  I am still trying to get situated in a way that I can handle it and stop feeling as if I am sinking.

I am desperately wanting a longer break.  I love my family and enjoy staying home with them.  🙂

Then I start thinking about the Christmas decorations.  Does anyone want to volunteer to come over and put them away for me?  Pretty please?!  If I don’t get them put away before break is over, there is a chance they could still be up in May (much to my husband’s chagrin!).

Now for the good stuff.  YES, I WILL POTTY-TRAIN MY YOUNGEST.  I will.  I will.  I ABSOLUTELY will.  He is three and no motivation, charts, wearing underpants, prizes, candy has enticed him to want to do this on a regular basis.  Ugh.  I WILL PERSEVERE!

I do need to start focusing more on me.  I need to spend more time doing things that make me happy.  If I’m happy, I will be healthier and my family will be better for it.

My wish is kind of a new surprise for me.  I went to an author presentation at my local library and came away wanting to try my hand at writing a book.  Wish me luck!

I hope everyone’s had a great 2014 and I wish you all the best in 2015!

  1. I have found myself in a blogging slump as well! I try to do a post a week, but between school, family, and my master’s classes that does not always happen! Writing a book would be awesome!!! I love attending different presentations and being inspired! Enjoy the rest of your break and have a Happy New Year!!

  2. Please keep us posted with your book goal! I think that is fantastic!! Also, don’t beat yourself up about blogging. I’ve been slacking in that department a bit as well (thank goodness for guest bloggers)!

    Have a great 2015!
