October Currently

Here is my "currently" for October! Thanks Oh' Boy 4th Grade!

Listening.  I am so very grateful to hear the sound of my little brother cooking in the kitchen! He has been staying with me since Scott passed away.  I have not had to stay alone the first night, and I can't put in to words how thankful I am that he has stayed with me these past 3+ months. 

Loving.  I get a Birchbox delivered to my mailbox every month, and let me tell ya, I LOVE IT! It is like Christmas morning every single time I find it in the mailbox.  I can't wait to run up my stairs to rip it open! haha.. This month, I got some really good new products I had never heard before.  One of them is some leave in conditioner/protect and detangle by Beauty Protector. It smells so good, and I really like how it made my hair feel.  There was also some glycerin hand therapy that smells so good too! I loved this month's box. It really is worth the ten dollars a month! 

Thinking. I miss Scott. I just do. I feel like people think I should be moving on, and not talking about it so much or something, but I can't help it. This has been the most weird, shocking, terrible thing that has ever happened to me. I used to imagine walking down the aisle to him one day on our wedding day.  Instead, I walked down the aisle to him in a casket at his funeral. I remember thinking that God was playing some crazy joke on me when everyone stood up when we walked in the church.  Some days it is still unreal. I am trying very, very hard.  I just miss him so much my chest even aches so badly. Every vision I had of my future had him in it.  I guess I have resorted to posting this here because I feel like everyone of my friends are getting tired of hearing me.  But.. yea.. that is a little of what I am thinking. For now, I need to talk about the hurt.  Eventually I think I will be able to get used to this feeling without discussing it, but right now... I just need to talk about it every now and then... but let's move on, shall we? 

Wanting.  So, right now my living room is done in like a cream color with red.  I feel like i need a change! I might be moving into a different apartment here in the next couple of months, so I am thinking about getting a new couch and living room decor when I do.  I am thinking I want something completely different! I will have to pinterest some things and get some ideas. 

Needing. I need printer ink. Teachers, I know you need no explanation. We just print a lot. haha!

Trick or Treat? Treat!!! To teach my research common core writing standards, I require students create a research question each week.  They must research to find the answer to the questions AND restate and answer the question as well as cite the evidence from their source.  It really is a great introduction to writing research papers, and gets them used to citing sources. Oh. and they really love it!! I am setting to $1.00 for the next 7 days!

I hope everyone has a great week!! 


  1. I have to get in on the whole Birchbox thing!
    I don't know what you have recently went through with Scott, but please know my heart aches for you. I pray that God brings you a peace that passes all understanding. I think it is good that you talk about him and your hurt so that you can heal. And, although that I don't personally know you, please if you do need to talk or type out all of those feelings I would be happy to listen. Some of my blogging buddies have become some of my wonderful friends. I'm sorry for what you are going through and you're lucky to have your brother there for you.
