March Currently

Here's the March currently from Farley.  Go over to her blog and link up! :)  I always LOVE seeing what other bloggers have to say.

Listening: As I was filling it out, I realized I was sitting in silence.  Sometimes it's just best that way!
Loving: Ok, seriously... for February to be the shortest month it sure felt like the longest month!  I thought it would never end.  Holy cow.
Thinking: All I've heard ALL week is that it was supposed to snow today.  No snow. Not one bit.  Boo.
Wanting: I have a huge pile of laundry that I have been procrastinating going through.  Wouldn't it be awesome if a little magic fairy could come and do it FOR me? :)
Needing:  I have some new items in the works for my store but I need to just sit down and finish it.
Like: coca-cola- I started drinking JUST water this week... I miss soda!
Love: Chocolate ... I'm trying to stay away from ALL of the candy I got from my 4th graders for Valentine's Day. 
Hate: Cattyness ... is that how you even spell it?  Ugh. 
I could have added that I LOVE the email I had in my inbox when I got to work on Monday morning... I'll give you a sneak peek....
That's right!  My donors choose project has been fully funded.  I screamed and then the teacher across the hall poked his head out the door to make sure I was ok.  Oh man I was excited!!!!
My project was for 6 video cameras and they showed up in my classroom yesterday! 
My brain is overflowing with so many great projects that we can do.... my first thought was history skits then my thoughts went to readers theater. My kiddos were SO excited!!!!  Can't wait to use these with them. 
Smiles and Snapshots!


  1. I am so super jealous! I've always wondered about Donors Choose so thanks for sharing. I found you through Farley's currently and am your newest follower! If that laundry fairy shows up send her my way when you are finished ;)

    Crofts' Classroom

    1. I had never submitted a project because I thought that I wouldn't ever get it funded! I posted it on Facebook and my mom shared it on her FB page too. Someone anoymously finished the funding. It took a little while but it was well worth it!

  2. Love your blog! Congratulations on your project getting funded! How exciting! I have had a project funded there before and know how exciting it is! I currently have a project listed that has been half funded! Still need $250 more!

    BTW, did you know that your "Like, Love, Hate" are supposed to all start with the first letter of your first name?? Thought you might like to know before Farley dings you! :)

    The Bender Bunch

    1. That's so excited! That was my first project so I was a bit nervous but I am thankful that I did it!

      And thanks for the heads up... I fixed it! :)

  3. Courtney, I just found your blog and I love it! So excited to read more :)

    No snow in Kentucky during the week but then, it started today. What good is snow on a Saturday??? :)
