January Currently!!!

well today we had to go back for in-service.. blah!  I'm always so brain-dead by the end of it.  We had a few share sessions, so that was fun.. but I always seem to be very drained by the end of it!
I'm loving Sara Jo's nursery.  I had my baby shower at church this last Sunday and we were overwhelmed by the love and generosity that was given.  So, needless to say.. I spent the last few days of my break organizing her nursery!  Ahh-- I could just sit in her cozy little room all day.  I plan on taking pictures of it very soon-- I promise to share!
I say I'm ready for maternity leave.. because I am!  This year has been very hard for me.  I love my kids.. but it's just a tough year.  I'll leave it at that!  You're a teacher, so you understand!
But, before I leave.. I need to finish up just a few more things.  I'm actually almost completely done with my maternity plans!  That was exciting and huge to get accomplished over the break!
And last.. I need more sleep!  Everyone says, "get sleep now!"  Welp.. turns out I'm struggling in this area.  It's a combination of achiness, my mind going constantly, and anxiety. 
And last my OLW: balance.
I am praying that after my sweet girl comes along I will be able to balance being a wife, mother, teacher, daughter, getting my masters, going to church, blogger and all the other wonderful things I have going on!
Wow.. I wrote a novel tonight!  Well, if you're still out of school-- you disgust me.. and if you have to go back like I do.. I'm sorry! haha Either way, have a blessed night!!! 


  1. Becky-
    Wow! Balance is such a great word since you are about to be a new mom! Congrats. Girls are so much fun. I have two little "princesses" or "fairies" or "super-heroes"...four and two 1/2. I was working on my master's when I was a new mom too. It's tough but it feels good when you figure out your balance! Best of luck!

    Oh...p.s....what part of TN are you in? I taught in Knoxville for a couple of years. I enjoyed living down there!


  2. Congrats on being a new mommy! Balance was almost my word too, but I'm not a mom so I can only imagine throwing a little one in the mix! I had to go back to school today, and the kids were there. I don't know what kind of crazy person created our calendar. haha!

  3. My little munchkin will be 1 in a week. I was told to sleep while you can, but I couldn't sleep. Luckily, Brayden started sleeping through the night at 6 weeks. Hoping you get some rest. Congratulations on your blessing! Balance is a great word. You can do it!
