Currently in July and Manic Monday

Excited to link up with the Farley's Currently.  I will have to finish reading everyone else's tomorrow.

Yes, I was listening to Miley Cyrus - I love the message behind the song "The Climb."

I am addicted to sweet tea right now.  I'm trying to eat more salad and eliminate alcohol, soda, and dairy as much as I can, so for right now sweet tea is my vice.  I like cold and sugar when it is 100+ out.

I'm super excited to be able to announce I'm going back to teaching.  I gave my two week's notice on Friday.  Technical writing has helped me improve my writing and technology skills, but I am excited to have been offered a position at a private school 15 minutes from my house. 
I want some new books to read, but I need to stop blogging long enough to curl up with a book.  I'll get there.  I consume books and then take a break.  I do things in cycles.

The last few months I have been going to hot yoga 2-4 times a week.  The last month I have started interval power walking and running.  Trying to get in some sort of routine with yoga and running.  I want to get a new bike, too, for the days it is too hot to run.

I love No Talking.  It is the perfect light-hearted story with a good message.  It brings up some great conversations on communication as well.  Appeals to boys and girls both.
If I am being honest, my go-to resource has been Laura Candler's website.  She was my jumping off point for Reader's Workshop and organization and scheduling and seasonal resources and literature circles and foldables. Should I keep going?

For those of trying to get organized, go ahead and download my freebie binder covers and spine labels for the holidays.
