OMG... it's already September {currently}

How is it already SEPTEMBER?!?! Seriously, I swear, just yesterday I started at my new school. Apparently not... Apparently I didn't get the memo that August was over and that now it's time for pumpkin spiced everything, ugg boots and leggings, and all things Fall. I'm not complaining. I love Fall ... although I'm not sure how much I'll enjoy raking all the leaves in my new yard. I can tell you though, that I am beyond EXCITED for some football and cannot wait for this Friday's big game against UW.

In my classroom, we have been getting down to business! I am seriously IN LOVE with my new school, my adorable third graders, and the rigor. I've grown so much as an educator the last three weeks that it's INSANE ... I am amazed at how much energy I have when I get home, how much support I receive in the classroom, and how much help my team has been. If I had to decide right now, I would never want to leave.

So, now that I'm starting to have a little relaxation time at the end of my day (even though I had to take my fur baby to the vet for an emergency stick removal from the top of her mouth tonight) maybe, just maybe I might get back to blogging, creating, and reading instead of revamping my schedule for the 8th 12th time, stressing out about tomorrow, and changing lesson plans last minute!

I know I owe everyone a top ten list, but it's just not going to happen until this weekend ... I promise you'll be able to link up to it on Saturday! So, for tonight, I will quickly complete this currently list and then go to bed early ... because, well I'm teacher tired and I deserve it!

Listening -  Missing: The Maura Murray Podcast - since Serial, I've been pretty obsessed with podcasts and NPR. That might be thanks to my boy too... But they make my brain stop thinking about everything I need to get done and focus on something else. I love the story telling, true crime podcasts, and this one fits the bill.

Wanting - Ok, I broke down and bought a pair of cute CROCS, and boy oh boy, I'm never buying another brand of shoes again for these aching teacher feet. They're soft and squishy and just right for my ankle problems. I come home and can actually do things around the house because my feet don't hurt. I'm so happy I could try and do one of those cute leg kick jumps, but I know that wouldn't work out in my favor :) I can't wait to buy another pair {or 5}!

3 Goals - Lesson plans done by Thursday night - I'm hoping to spend less time on the weekends working and more time enjoying my time off. I'm hoping that I can start working on this goal this week. I'd really like to have Sunday to relax :) 
Blog once a week - I need to get back into the groove of things!
Dishes every night - now that there are two people and two dogs, the dishes pile up a lot faster. I need to do the dishes every night and stop letting them pile up in the sink!
