January Currently and a SALE!

Since I've started blogging, Farley's Currently has become my favorite part of the month! I love it because it makes me think and I love it because it reminds me to assign the current Currently to my kiddos. They love them! I display them on a bulletin board outside my classroom titled "Currently in Room 851". The kids and teachers in my hall stop to read, too. Here is my January Currently (which I do share with my kids):

I did stay up late last night and I am NOT a night owl. I'm a morning person, so even if I stay up late, I get up early! This morning I am up early listening to TLC while I work on my "stuff"! I can multi-task like that. I like to have background noise on when I'm on the computer or cleaning or cooking. I may not be watching, but I am listening!
I am loving our best friends. We have so much in common. Their 2 kids and our 2 kids are besties. They are a teacher couple like us. They appreciate our crazy dog house because they have one, too!   We all hung out last night at my house. We ate good food, sat around my little fire pit in the backyard, and then the hubbys put on a fireworks show with the "cheap" fireworks from Walmart. The men created quite the presentation! We laughed until we cried! I think that is what I love the most about them...we can just all be silly together!
I'm thinking (bold that word thinking) about cleaning my windows. The back of my house is all sliding doors and they are dirty! I'll just think about it today! LOL!
I'm wanting a new purse. I have a bunch of Macy's gift cards that were gifts from my class, so this is a real possibility!
I'm needing to work on TpT products which I'm doing today!
OLW...FORWARD. It's a new year and I think this word is appropriate for today. Though 2012 was filled with many blessings and happy days, I'm looking FORWARD to what 2013 brings. 
I hope you are, too!
Enjoy the start of your New Year!!
