It's Currently February (GET ME OUT OF HERE)

Time for Farley's Currently!

 I just survived the longest week of my life...
so I am not surprised that it is February (finally).

Listening - Do they hear them barking, right next to where they are sitting on the couch watching Animal Planet?  They must...

Loving - We are supposed to get between 2 - 9 inches of snow today.  I guess the meteorologists are no longer willing to commit to a more specific number.  And what would be the's coming down like crazy and it has been like this for weeks.  Snow is up to the top of my fence in the backyard, which means the doggies have a ramp to freedom.  Is it spring yet?

Thinking - I'm heading into week two of my two week sentence.  I had surgery last Monday and I seriously might by the end of the 2nd week of resting.  That might sound a bit much to some of you (I realize), but for people like me this staying still so you don't disturb the stitches/doing nothing/can't lift anything/don't take a walk/rest/rest/rest/probably end up with bed sores soon drama feels like a bit of ToRtUre. Ok, I's not that bad and it could be worse and I have no right to complain.

Wanting - GET ME OUT OF HERE...just 5 minutes would help (I think).

Needing - grad paper + a never ending list of work stuff to do + lots of time for once

2 Truths + 1 Fib - I do love Little House on the Prairie and I did dance in a production of Thriller.  I was a ghoul.  I still remember the routine, but no longer perform it in public.

As for the Windex (BIG FAT FIB)!  I love Windex! I love the color (blue only).  I love the way it smells.  I love the how it makes everything so shiny.  I use it in my classroom daily to scrub everything.  My kids think it's funny and frequently buy me new bottles as a present (which I love).  I use it at home too (even on the granite - don't worry what they say is not true - yet).

Dear Windex,
You should really hire me or at least put one of your ads in my sidebar. I am your biggest supporter.

Head over to check out the other Currently posts!  Reading through those should help me fill up a few hours before I GET OUT OF THIS HOUSE!


  1. Reading about your Windex obsession made me think about My Big Fat Greek Wedding. I've been cooped up in the house all week because of snow - people in the south don't know how to drive in it - and I'm going crazy. Glad to be able to get out this weekend.

  2. Hi Kimberly! I just found you through Farley's Currently post. I hope your recovery from your surgery is going well. I think you have every right to complain about the boredom! You're totally right- it IS torture. I was out of school for a month last March because of mono. I also wanted to poke my eyeballs out! Is there a new TV series you can get into? If only I had discovered Downton Abbey & Homeland back then! Best Wishes!


  3. I too thought of My Big Fat Greek Wedding... do you spray it on yourself yet???
    I am so sorry your resting recovering is making you want to poke your eyes out... DON'T do it... then you can't fill up your time reading through all of the links in the CURRENTLY!!!
    THANKS for always linking up and coming to my party!!!

  4. I enjoyed reading your Currently so much! You made me laugh a lot! Well, that probably sounds really bad, but still true! I hope you are recovering nicely. Besides even if you could go somewhere there seems to be too much snow! REST! Watch some great court room drama on daytime TV. Read some blogs!

    Nice to meet you!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  5. I use lysol wipes in excess in my room, but maybe windex would be a nice change! I always make the kids immediately go wash their hands because I know the chemicals are probably not the healthiest thing but I hate GERMS! Lol :) Happy Weekend
