August Currently

I'm joining Farley for her August Currently!
Listening:  I absolutely love KLove Radio.  99.4.  It is exactly what it claims to be... positive and encouraging.  I can't get through a day without listening.
Loving:  I just began using Project Life in my daughter's scrapbooks because I finally (after 19 years) ran out of Creative Memories mauve scrapbooks and can't find anymore without paying an arm & a leg for them on eBay.  It is much faster than regular scrapbooking, although it takes out some of the creative elements and "locks" you into the orientation of the photos. 

Thinking:  Time flies by even if you aren't ready.  Now that August 1 is on the books, I will be back at school before you know it.   I haven't accomplished as much as I wanted and only have 16 days to get it done AND Monday I move my son back to college.  Not the dorms.  A real 12 month lease apartment.  I know what that means, too.  I will hardly see him, especially since he's found the love of his life in Boone.  It's quite an exciting and sad time of parenting.  I don't like it, not one bit!
Wanting:  Football to start!  I have a freshman playing football this year at North!  There's nothing like football at North Davidson!  It has a life and atmosphere all it's own.  Secondly, this is going to be the year my Cowboys win the Superbowl!  I've been a fan since I was 6!  
Needing: I ran out of magnet laminate & laminating pouches again right in the middle of a project!  I'm sure that never happens to anyone else, right!
B2S RAK:  I've made lots of cards this summer.  I plan to make card sets for my first grade friends!  Here's one set.
Happy August!



  1. I'm with you! Football where are you? And best of all I am a die hard DALLAS COWBOYS FAN! We are totally going all the way, I believe it in my heart :)

    Crazy, you ran out of laminating pouches and I just walked in the door from getting a few more packs from BJ's Wholesale. If I could send you a few I would.

    1. Dia,
      I'm in NC. My dad was a Cowboy Fan when I was little! Everyone around me loves the Panthers, but there was no way I was switching to the home team. The Cowboys are my team. My car is a really pretty blue with gray pin stripes. I have a DC star tag on the front, plate on the back & a small star on the back window. Not to mention, it's name is Staubach! (Doesn't everyone name their car?)

  2. Okay, first of all I am totally stealing your card idea. Secondly, you are so correct about this time of your life being exciting and sad. The first Christmas morning I got up with no children in the house was bittersweet. Hubs and I just enjoyed a quiet morning. The kids came in later in the day. Enjoy every moment of this time. Because you are also correct that time goes too fast! I loved this post! Thank you for sharing!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

    1. Oh Carol, I can't imagine the day none of them are here on Christmas Morning! As a married couple we've only had 2 Christmases without a child. We've been married 24 years this October. Not looking forward to that at all!

  3. I'm an Eagles fan, but I love your shirt! I have one for my Philles. =)

    From Classroom To Counselor

    1. My sister is an Eagles Fan. She said she always remembered me having all my Cowboys stuff so she had to have a team of her own. Just so glad she didn't pick the Steelers or Skins! That would cause a family feud!
