Currently May

I know, I know...I've been gone FOR-EV-ER!  It's been a crazy year with lots of ups and a few downs and sooooo incredibly busy!  I've missed participating in Currently so I was so excited that it is up and running for May!  I sort of wish it was June since we don't get out of school until June 20th!  I'm so jealous of all of you who are down to your last few weeks!
Listening:  I'm listening (not watching) to Bloodrelatives on the Investigation Discovery channel.  I'm addicted to this channel!  Anyone else like all of these real life crime/murder shows?

Loving:  I love my family of course but I am celebrating that we are all healthy.  My mom had a serious health issue at the beginning of the year but is now doing fabulous!  I am so grateful for our health! Feeling blessed!

Thinking:  I've recently gained six new special education students and have to write their IEP's which is not fun!  I want a secretary!

Wanting:  We've been talking about adopting a pug (from a rescue) so that our little pug will have some company.  We're still not sure if it's the right decision for us.  Anyone have any good advice?

Needing:  We finally (after 5 years) have decided on a date to get married (September 19) and it's on my parent's 50th wedding anniversary!  I'm so excited about finally getting hitched but it doesn't give us much time!  I'm still searching for the perfect place for our ceremony and reception.  So nervous!

Surprise:  If you don't already follow Kelly over at First Grade Fairytales I strongly urge that you rush over and check out her wonderful blog!  She is such a kind and talented person!  You will love her too!
So that's it for me for today!  I have to go finish an IEP and then get some sleep!  So glad tomorrow is Friday!

Oh and if you haven't entered still have a few hours to try to win a pair of Tieks!  Eeekk!  I'm so excited!  Just click on this picture to enter!
And link up with Farley to join in the Currently fun!

December...the most wonderful time of the year!

     It's the most wonderful time of the year!  December is a whirlwind with shopping, parties, Christmas and ending with the the BEST day of the birthday!
     Seriously this year truly is flying by and I have been VERY absent from blogging.  I've had the most challenging year of my 18 year teaching career and my heart just hasn't been into blogging.  I've noticed a similar trend in "Blogland" but it seems people are getting back into their blogging grooves. Yay!  I may have been an absent blogger but I've been keeping up with blog stalking!
     I missed linking up with Farley's Currently last month and I just couldn't let another month go by without joining in.  So without further adieu here is my December Currently...

Currently and Do You Slant?

Long time no see!  Perhaps that should say long time no blog.  I'm so sorry for my long absence.  I had a challenging school year last year and the end of the year was even MORE challenging!  To say I was burnt out would be an understatement!  So I really needed to take a break from SCHOOL things. While I did continue to spend much of my summer blog stalking I clearly did not do any blog posting. I hope to turn that around beginning now!  Now don't get too excited as I'm not quite up to par of the amazing daily bloggers...but I'm going to try to blog at least weekly and there's only up from there! Without further ado... I'm linking up with my favorite link party...Farley's Currently!
I also took part in The Slantbox Exchange over on Jameson's blog, Lessons With Coffee.  Have you heard of it?  It.  Is.  Awesome!  Basically you are paired up with two bloggers, one of which you send a box of goodies to and the other you receive a box of goodies from!  Every month has a theme and this month's theme was "My Favorite Things," where you sent your partner things that they love!  I received my box from Veronica at
 Teaching with giggles
Veronica did an AMAZING job picking out goodies for me!  She even packed the box so perfectly! Each gift was individually wrapped in hot pink tissue fav!
Super cute pens and pencils, a pretty flower and pink post-it notes, yummy vanilla tea, super sour candy and a super adorable GIANT pink clothespin that she personalized with my last name!  I LOVE IT ALL!  Thanks SO much Veronica!

It's Currently May!!!

It's May!  I'm so excited!  I would be even more excited if it was June instead!  I'm not wishing my life away but PEOPLE I have 38 (I think) more days left of school!!!!  Ahhhh!  Okay, enough about that...I'm linking up with Farley for her awesome Currently linky.

Listening:  I love Criminal Minds or any kind of criminal like show!  Did any of  you watch this season's "The Following?"  Monday was the season finale and it was amazing!

Loving:  My family...always!

Thinking:  I have SO many new referrals and therefore their will be MANY new IEP's to write!  Ugh!  I do loathe paperwork!  Why can't we just spend our time teaching?

Wanting:  So my Spring break was last week and I spent 6 of the 9 days painting one of our bathrooms and our hallway.  Yes I really thought it would only take 2 days, perhaps 3 tops.  Clearly it did not work out that way!  Long story short we changed the bathroom paint after the first coat (the first paint choice came out way to dark) and I had to work around the fiance's work schedule.  So glad it was productive and it's done but if I ever have the idea to spend a break doing that again, someone PLEASE stop me!

Needing:  Sleep.  Who doesn't?  My problem is I don't know when to go to bed!  

Summer Bucket List:  I would like to finally open up a TpT store with all of the things I've been creating and using with my students to see if anyone else can benefit from them.  The fiance is taking two weeks off this summer and I'm hoping we'll go on an actual honest to goodness vacation (the last real vacation together was ummmmm......never).  I can't wait to sleep in and just relax (although I truly am not good at relaxing but at least I can spend this summer learning how to right)?

Teacher Talk Tuesday

So my blog feed has been FILLED for the past two days with posts about "Teacher Talk Tuesday."  After about the 100th post I had to read more about this cool idea so I headed over to Rachelle and Natalie's blog at What the Teacher Wants to read more (click on the picture below to see more for yourself). 
This appears to be a super cool Instagram linky!  I have a personal Instagram account which I love (but don't actually use very much).  Well, I decided to jump on the blogging bandwagon and created an Instagram account for Aisforapplebisforblog because it looks like so much fun and I figured it would help me to remember to take more pictures of what goes down in my room!  I don't have any pictures yet but I will tomorrow!

If you're interested in joining in on the fun, you can follow me on Instagram {HERE}.  You can also just search for the username Aisforapplebisforblog from your Instagram account.  Be sure to look for the hashtag #teachertalktuesday to see all the pictures from your favorite bloggers!  If you have an Instagram account pllease leave a comment below so I can follow you!

Currently April or April Fools?

Well it is still technically March but I  am so excited to be linking up with Farley for April's Currently!  Love these!
Listening:  Do you watch Red Widow?  It has only been on for a month or two but I'm enjoying it so far.  I like that the female lead is a butt whooping chick!

Loving:  I have wanted a Silhouette Cameo or Portrait for quite a while (and I think I've written that on several Currently's) but I just couldn't bare to splurge on myself!  Well I don't have to now because I won a Portrait from The Idea Room (thanks Amy)!

Thinking:  I LOVE holidays and spending time with family however, my fiance and I always host these gatherings at our house (because we have the most room) which means shopping, cooking and cleaning!  It's exhausting!

Wanting:  This winter has seemed exceptionally cold and I am so anxious for warmer weather!  I'm very jealous of all of you who live where it's warm (including my snowbird parents)!

Needing:  In New Hampshire we have three week long breaks over the course of the school year.  The first is for Christmas, then we have a week off at the end of February and finally a week off at the end of April.  I have so many plans for this upcoming break (painting my front hall and one of our bathrooms is at the top of the list).  The best part of break is that when we return the rest of the year seems to fly by!  This year we're not getting out until  June 24 because we had six snow days!  Yikes!

Advice:  Yes I really think I'm the one who needs the advice!  I don't blog nearly as often as most bloggers (how some of you manage to blog everyday astounds are amazing).  I still haven't taken the plunge to share some of my creations on Tpt or Teachers Notebook yet.  I'm just not sure if anyone would find them useful because I'm a special education teacher and not a classroom teacher. Maybe one of these days!  I do believe that you should share what is in your heart and continue to try, whether that is blogging, creating for your store or teaching in general!
