Happy New Year!!

I love fresh starts!  I love having the opportunity to try again and be successful.  This blog is one area, I am going to start again.  Thanks to Farley at Oh' Boy Fourth Grade I get to work on this goal today.

Here's a look at my January 2015 Currently...

I am currently listening to the news and waiting to get back to football!

I am LOVING my time off.  We go back on Monday, but kiddos don't return until Tuesday, I love having a short week when we get back.  I have loved sleeping in and enjoying time with my family and friends.

I am thinking that this is the year I really want to achieve my goals.  2015 is set to be a big year and I want it to be SUCCESSFUL!!

As I have stated multiple times in my past "Currently's", I am adopting a little 2 year old cutie.  Adoption is a LONG process and I had really hoped she would be home for Christmas, but she wasn't.  So I currently stalk  check my email for the notice that everything is approved and I can book my trip to go get her!!!

I am generally a positive/motivated person, however lately I have been discouraged by some unforeseen issues in the adoption process.  I need to make sure I stay focused on the positive!!!

Yes, I will finally have a 2 year old in my house!!!!  Maybe, this will be the year all my goals will be achieved. And, I wish good health and happiness for all my wonderful family and friends....including all of the amazing teachers out there that motivate me DAILY!!!!!

Happy 2015!!!


  1. Oh - what a wonderful thing to look forward to in the coming year! I hope that things from here on out go smoothly in your adoption. I will be watching your blog for updates.

    You are so lucky to have Monday with no students. I would love that.

    All the best in 2015!

  2. Hi Nicole! Just found you through Farley's Currently. I'm hoping to start fresh with my blog this year too. I kinda put it on the backburner for a while. How nerve wracking it must be waiting for that email. But I'm sure the excitement you are feeling outweighs the nerves. I hope that email comes very soon for you! Happy New Year!

  4. Congratulations on the adoption! What a wonderful year you'll have with your new little girl!

  5. Nicole, my fingers are crossed that you'll get that email soon! I was just thinking about our table from the meetup and wondering if anyone would be interested in getting together at some point this winter or spring. Hope everything is well with you!
