Currently in July

I'm Late! WT? I was so proud of myself as I set reminders for the first, I log on and she posted July's currently early! Story of my life! Oh well! Here we go!

Listening - pretty obvious- we have a SUPER old house and we don't have central air which isn't a big deal most of the time. We have window units in the bedrooms and in here cause of the computer. It's really loud though!
Loving - I live in Missouri which many people consider Misery in the summer! We can reach temps of 100 easy with crazy humidity making it feel like you're in a steam room the moment you walk outside! This summer has been VERY mild this week the highs are in the mid 80's that's unheard of for us! I am glad though cause we have birthday stuff today and annual 4th of July BBQ at our house later this week.
Thinking - my oldest turns NINE today! I can't believe he's growing up so fast! That means next year he will be double digits! NO! (another sadder note thinking tomorrow would have been my Dad's 65th birthday and I miss him so much!)
Wanting - I know everyone does right?!?! But I really want/need to! I have gained 38 pounds since last summer with most of that being since Christmas! I am the heaviest I have ever been like heavier than when I delivered my third and can't really pinpoint a reason why my diet hasn't changed I try to exercise, I even went to the doctor to have thyroid tested and it's fine! So that's weighing heavily on me mostly since it's summer and I am going to have to put on a swimsuit at some point.
Needing - I am an Origami Owl designer and our very first National Convention is next week in Phoenix! I am so excited but I need to start making lists of things to pack, projects to do before (team gifts, door sign, etc)
Tip - Make time for yourself! It's easy to get burnt out on teaching, being a mom, wife, etc. if it's ALL you do. I am bad about this especially during school year as my hubs works 3-11 and it's all me all the time feels like! So make time for a mani/pedi or girls night! You will feel loads better and be a better teacher, mother,wife for it!


  1. I live in TN and we are having similar weather! So nice and breezy even :)

  2. Alabama weather will definitely beat you up in the summer so I totally commiserate with you! Love your blog- thanks to Farley for linking up so many of us!


  3. I love your tip! I need to take more time for myself, but just can't seem to find the time to do it! This time of the year would be the perfect time to do it. Especially before school starts back!

  4. Love your blog! I am working on losing weight too...well, toning, and I bought the Insanity DVDs. Even though I can't keep up with the people on the DVD, I'm still trying and working hard! I can tell a difference after only 5 days! Good luck!
