Currently... (Vol. 22)

Starting...  a new chapter of my career at Simpsonville Elementary.

Bidding...  a fond farewell to the faculty and staff of Heritage Elementary, who have been like my family for the past 18 years.  (If you are reading this, I will miss you more than words can ever express.)

Overwhelmed...  by the outpouring of love, congratulations, and well wishes I received from the Big H staff leading up to my departure.

Learning...  a new (to me) building, a new faculty, a new schedule, a new principal, a new ARC chair, a new roommate, a new community, a new school climate, and new students.

Shocked by...  the mountain of boxes that is currently in my garage.  These boxes contain all the personal therapy materials I've accrued over the past two decades.  Lord only knows how much money I've spent!

(The wrapping paper boxes were already in the garage...  LOL!)

Singing...  "Closing Time" by Semisonic.  This song has been stuck in my head for the past 3 weeks after I used a line from the song in a Facebook post announcing my job change.

Enjoying...  the shorter commute already!  (I've gone from a 90 mile roundtrip commute to 56!)

Reading, well, listening to...  the audiobook Survivor by Brett Battles.

Anticipating...  the new season of Shameless!  I LOVE the dysfunctional Gallaghers!

Missing...  the blue water of the Caribbean.  Although it rained during much of our cruise last month and we weren't able to enjoy the water as much as we would've liked, it was still nice to see the blue hues that I love so much.


What have you been up to lately?  Have a great day!

Linking up with:


  1. All the best in your new job!

    Those wrapping paper boxes look useful. I could use some of them!

    1. Thank you! (Sorry for the delay in my response, by the way. Life has been super crazy and I've not had a lot of free time.)

      The wrapping paper boxes are very handy! I've had those for at least 17-18 years.

  2. It's crazy what an improvement a reduced commute has in all areas of life.

  3. yay for new things! love that line from that song, it really is true and makes you think a lot. i keep meaning to watch Shameless, it looks hilarious.
