It's Currently September!

Well, here we are.  Labor Day. The last day of an empty 10 am grocery store.  The last day of morning puppy cuddles.  The last day of people-watching my neighbors.  I totally do that.  No judging, please. Instead, why don't you see what's on my mind?

1. My husband works from home, so he gets to spend every day with Lacey.  She's definitely a Daddy's Girl. 

2. I'm super-loving my #bts14 school clothes! I got a great deal at Loft the other day and really lucked out. I am going to start adding to my "administrator clothes" pile little by little, so these were a great start!

3. I'm having mixed feelings about going back.  Not because it's the end of summer, but really because I'm ready to stretch my wings and see what else is out there.  Because you know, the grass is greener on the other side.  It is!

4. Everyone deServes to Learn is on facebook and it's kind of lonely out there! Come say hi!

5. I do a lot of running around on the first day or two of school.  It's my responsibility to test all new possible ELL's who enter the building, K-8.  I don't start my classes until Monday, even though we start school on Wednesday.  It's a necessary evil.  I don't do well with necessary evils.  So calm, cool, and collected it is. Hopefully.

6. I've been so fortunate to have traveled to many wonderful places.  Many cruises, Italy, Paris, Portugal, London, Hawaii...I really am a lucky girl.  But I would love to visit Geneva, Sydney, and Dublin.  I really would like to go to all the places in the world (except maybe not Antarctica.  I'm kind of a warm-weather person) at some point in my life.  An around the world cruise is right up my alley.

So that's what's on my mind as we start a new school year.  What's on yours? Link up with Fabulous Farley!


  1. Maria, this was such an enjoyable read. I feel like I was sitting across the table from you! Couldn't help but connect to your section about the Loft. That is where I went, as well. Aren't their clothes beautiful and quality? I hope your administrator wardrobe comes along nicely. Not only that, but that this transition goes smoothly for you. Always remember, you are stronger than you think. P.S. I liked your FB page! :) I've also been to Paris, Italy, London, and Hawaii. Who knew? Nothing like seeing the green grass everywhere!

  2. Maria - I agree with you on #5. Spending the first week testing and running about makes back to school a bit anti-climactic. I thought about putting Antarctica as one of my go to places since that is where the penguins are... but I am also a warm weather gal.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am super jealous of all of the places you have visited! Lucky girl!


  4. I can't wait to see all your new clothes! I did a little BTS shopping myself! I also can't wait to see all of Lacey's new tricks!

  5. Good luck to you this school year. Those kids are lucky to have you as an ESL teacher. I agree, an around the world cruise would be cool, I'd be right there with you.


Thanks for the comment! I really appreciate it.
