Where have I been? and Currently, July!

I am sure you have been wondering where I have been.  At least let me think that you have so I can feel important anyway!  I had to take a mini-break from the blog.  Seriously - this is what happened right before school ended....

This is what happens when I get too much on my plate.  With only having a 1/2 time assistant, testing, report cards and other end of the year hoopla - I simply couldn't find the time to blog.  


Achieving an A in 2 Grad School classes with all that on my plate in condensed 5 week Summer Session classes after being out for 8 years...yeah.  I have started 2 new ones and school is  

In addition to that, 

I live at the pool with my 2 kids and my nephew and sister.  As much as I enjoy blogging and creating TpT materials, I can tell you how much fun it is being at the pool instead :)  

I am not going to promise any regular blogging for the Summer even though I feel guilty for not blogging, but I will check in from time to time when I have a minute :) 

On to July's Currently!

I am hanging out with my sweet Elijah and he wants to watch The Backyardigans.  Such a cute little show! :) 

The best thing about Summer for me is being in my pajamas and sleeping in!  I love not having to get ready first thing in the morning and having time to just relax!

I have A LOT of Grad School work for this week.  It overwhelms me just looking at it.  I really need to get started!

Not only do I need to get started, I want to get all that work done! 

One of the projects I really want to do this Summer is organize my kids rooms and sell some of the excess toys we have.  I haven't quite gotten that motivation yet, though!

Last but not least, my tip is to do what you can and don't over extend yourself!  I blog when I can,  I pin when I can, I work on TpT stuff when I can. At the end of the day my family comes first and the rest is just icing on the cake.

Are you still with me?  If so, I'm having a 20% off sale in my TpT store!  This will be the last one for a while!  Stop by if you like :)
