Currently... Ramblings... {with Extra Ellipses!}

It's officially December, since Currently is here!!  I seem to be addicted to ellipses lately, so...

My family is amazing.  Right now my kiddos are running around giggling like mad.  It can mean they are playing... (fingers crossed) or they've just done something I'm not supposed to find out about...  I'll just believe they are giggling because they are playing!!  ;)

My awesome team mate, Casey, is the person who single-handedly saved me yesterday.  Thankfully, she planned an amazing afternoon of craftivities for our classes to do as we became "roomless" before dismissal.  {I work at a year-round school, and I had to move out to give the next teacher an afternoon to move her stuff in... make a seating chart... ya' know)  It was awesome!!  All activities came from the unit by MOM Printables.  I can't tell you how great it was to sit back and watch over 40 kiddos work away at this.  :)  Highly Recommended!!

I'm trying to think of some additional fun activities to do with my family this month... every year we do an activity advent calendar in our home, with some silly activities (dance to Christmas music!) and some service activities (buy gifts for a family in need) and some old favorites (drink hot chocolate and watch a Christmas movie).  Ideas, anyone?

Wanting - a new cell phone...  Specifically, an iPhone.  Issue - they are crazy expensive, and I'm kinda broke cheap frugal.  My phone still works fine.  Oh, well...  Maybe it'll stop working one day and I'll need a new phone.  What I really need right now is to spend some quality time with my neglected coupons, and save some money on the grocery bills.  (Maybe enough to justify a new phone...?)  What are y'all up to CuRrEnTly?

    Hi there! Stopping by for the "Currently" I know I have been here before but I must have missed the fact that you work at a year round school. I am very intrigued! I'll have to go back and take a look at old posts to learn more about the transition. It must be quite the undertaking to switch over so quickly. Good luck with the changes!

  3. Hi Jen
    Glad you are enjoying some time off. I want an i-phone too, don't need one just want one:) Enjoy those giggles.

  4. You left a link on my page, so I wanted to check out your Currently. Like Susan, I'm very intrigued by year around school. It sounds interesting.

  5. Hey! I found you through the Currently link-up. I love your RAK! I think that's awesome and a great idea. :)

    I recently got an iPhone 5 and...well...I love it. No...I didn't need a new phone. I just upgraded because my contract was up. I will say that there isn't a huge difference in the 4s and the 5 and I know that at Best Buy (at least w/ my carrier) you can get the iPhone 4 for free w/ contract renewal and iPhone 4s for $99 with contract renewal. It's what my parents did.

    You Might Be a First Grader...

  6. If you figure out a way to coupon that's organized, let me in on the secrets! I cannot figure out how to do it without buying things I do NOT need!! I'm interested in year round school, as well. It's interesting and has lots of different things compared to "normal" school years.

  7. thanks so much for linking up... we upgraded our phones at Target and got a GREAT deal!!! we got 2 phones for less than the price of one and they both were iphones :) maybe try that

  8. Hey NC friend! :) I reluctantly switched to the iPhone and now wonder what took me so long! Good luck getting whatever you choose. But be's addicting!! :)
