Aloha! My name is Cher and I'm from Oahu, Hawaii.  I am married with two dogs.  This is my 6th year teaching and my fourth in 1st grade.  I am blessed to be teaching first graders!  I hope you'll stick around to hear my thoughts about teaching and what is happening in my life.

My first "Currently" - July 2015!

Aloha, Friends!  I am excited to link up with someone for the first time for a linky party!  What better person to link up with than the master of "Currently" linky parties -

Listening: I LOVE Periscope, but Periscope is such a time sink for me that in order to get things done I need to take Lindsey's (Miss Johnston's Journey) advice and turn off the phone and even put it in the next room so I can actually.., do work and what not.  Anyway,  I happened to catch a replay of Mary's periscope in which she shared a cool phone app called "Photo365."  If you're quick, you can catch her periscope broadcast.  Follow her at @mkkrenke.
Loving: Today, I used this Hoover carpet washer to wash, scrub, and rinse the carpet in the TV room and also the sofa, loveseat (?), and arm chair's upholstery.  It took a VERY long time... at least 4 hours and it's still drying right now.  I am super proud of myself because my family can tell the difference and congratulated me on a job well done.   This clearly counts as my workout today.

Thinking: I should make something for "Monday Made It!"  I still have time. It's 8:30pm and maybe I will... but I technically did make something.... cleaner. :-)

Wanting:  I really could use a magic wand to clean up my messes right now.  Specifically three spots in the house are really needing attention.  Okay, maybe 5... I lied.  I got off to a good start, but procrastination and periscope. Yeah.

Needing: If I clean up my messes, I can feel free to seriously prep for school.  Can someone lend me a magic wand?  I'm probably procrastinating on purpose.  School starts for teachers in about 2.5 weeks.  I'm seriously clinging to summer vacation like... a sloth clinging to a tree branch.  I already have the BTS butterflies.  Thanks, anxious feelings, you're the best!!

All Star: I was raised by my parents and grandmother to be on time, even early, to everything.  I really don't like to keep others waiting.  I would rather be the one waiting, even if it's inconvenient for me.  I hate making others wait.  My husband's spontaneity drives me bonkers!!

Hope you enjoyed reading and I didn't bore you!
Stop by Oh' Boy Fourth Grade and Link up with us!! :-)

  1. If you find that magic wand, please share over here! I love that you're a person who likes to be on-time, it shows you have a lot of empathy and caring for those around you and don't want to make them wait as well.

    1. Thank you for stopping by! That is really sweet of you to say. I would much rather wait for people than be the one people are waiting for. I appreciate your kind words.


  2. Then send the magic wand my way! FAST! LOL I also need to clean up the mess to feel ready to tackle the prep for a new school year! I admit I am procrastinating...starting to enjoy my summer break more and more! Can't wait to read more from your blog!

    1. I am so unmotivated to finish cleaning. I think I started off strong and then it went down hill, especially with periscope. Oh well, school starts in 14 days so it's now or never... :D Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful year.
