Currently February

For Fun


Listening: I am enjoying the quiet that comes with getting home first!


Loving: I am counting down to February Break for a few reasons. First, work has been a bit overwhelming lately so a break will be greatly appreciated. Two, we are having a bunch of work done on our house and we should be ready for painting by the start of break.


Thinking: We have a late start next week, which means that I have two hours of professional development time with my classroom teachers. I need to get started on my presentation!


Wanting: When we bought our house a few years ago, we didn’t realize that the popcorn ceiling was installed incorrectly. Because of this, it is now falling off in large chunks so we are having a contractor come in and rip it all down, mud, and prime the ceilings.


Which leads me to Needing: I need to finish packing up our things and move them into the finished basement, where we will be living during the construction. I started last weekend but I’ve lost steam…


Swooning: Since the ceilings are coming down, the drywall tape that covers the seam between the wall and ceiling will need to be replaced which will lead to every wall in the house needing to be repainted. I loved the colors in the house when we moved in so I only painted the living room. Now I have to choose paint for the whole house, which is a daunting task as I don’t like making decisions! I think I have settled on my colors. What do you think?

    We bought a house right before Christmas and moved in. The walls were all neutral so we haven’t touched them, but I hope to in the future! I hope that your house turns out beautifully!

    Hi Sarah! Welcome to the blogging world! You and Ashley, the gal in the linky before you, literally started in January. How crazy and fun! I noticed that you mention creating PD and your picture tag mentions literacy coaching! We have something in common…kind of. I am an Instructional Coach, so I help provide support in all curricular areas, not just literacy. How long have you been a Lit Coach? Are you loving it?

      This is my first year as an interventionist/coach. I absolutely LOVE coaching! It is so rewarding to help my teachers feel more confident. I also love visiting classrooms and making connections with a larger student population.
