Currently April!

Listening - Have I mentioned Bar Rescue before? The hubs and I are a little obsessed with it. I think it's because we both worked in the restaurant industry.

I'm also listening to the hubs try and eat his 100th popsicle of the week. He had his tonsils out on Monday... no more Snor-a-saurus Rex we hope!... and the last few days have been the toughest. Anybody have any good soft food diet tips? He's a little *over* Spaghettios, mashed potatoes, and Popsicles.

Loving - My parents are coming down to see my drama club kiddos perform on Friday night. Big hugs and love to Aileen at iTeach who has helped me wade through this adventure for 2 years in a row! 

Thinking - We must be the last school district on the planet to have Spring Break. The last night of our show marks the start of our vacation. I am excited for the play to open, but the next 5 days cannot pass soon enough! This lady needs a break! :)

Wanting - Spring is starting to arrive (finally) here in Georgia, and the daily pollen count and I are not friends. At all. I am a sneezing machine - and it has already begun. I went to CVS and stocked up on Claritin this afternoon. Anyone with me??

Needing - I mentioned the hubs' tonsillectomy. I have not been the best nurse 24/7 and may patient *may* be getting a little cranky. I need to be more patient with him and we both need to persevere through this healing process. I also love those words because they will be my mantra as I am looking ahead to Spring Break!!

Advice - I am in no way a big seller on TpT, but I do have a strong following there and here on my blog. (Thank you!!) I started in the summer of 2011 and my focus has been to share what works (and sometimes, what doesn't!) in my classroom. My progress has been steady, not instantaneous.

I did notice, however, that I gained momentum when I started networking with other bloggers. I participate in the forums, volunteer for giveaways, and reach out to the people I admire on my own! Some of the sweetest friends I have, I've never met in real life. :)

I'll also say this - don't try to pump up your store with a bunch of products as soon as possible. Teachers are picky people. :) Only put out your best. You'll attract loyal buyers who will come back again and again! Farley's right - don't get caught up in what everyone around you is doing. Celebrate your own successes!

  1. Bar Rescue is a favorite show of my hubby & I. I hope your husband's recovery is quick and that it works as it's suppose to with the snoring!

  2. Amen on your advice!! I was just talking to a BBB about that tonight! It's so important to sell WHAT WORKS over just making stuff to fill a store.

  4. I'm no where near you (California to be precise), but the pollen and I aren't getting along this year either! I've never really had seasonal allergies until now and I'd like to give them back to the allergy fairy!

  5. The pollen is about to hit us. It makes me miserable :(
