Super Sale and February Currently!

I just wanted to announce that I'm going to be taking part of the Super Sale over at Teachers Pay Teachers this Sunday!

There will be lots and lots of teacher bloggers taking part of the sale!  So head on over and buy our stuff!  {end of shameless plug}

Now, on to the February Currently!!  I'm linking up with Farley to participate and I'm kinda excited because...  it looks like I'll be in the top 50 people posting!  I'm usually at like person 200 and something linking up!

{Edited -- #24 people!  I am on TOP of things!}

So, yeah... I obviously get joys out of the little things in life.

My poor boy - came down with a fever and a cough last night.  I feel so bad for him, but he does have it made.  He's currently chilling on the couch with a Jake and the Neverland Pirate blanket, his teddy and my iPad to watch Netflix.

Moving on...  to Pet Peeves.

My pet peeve??  Number 1?  Grammar mistakes.  I cannot stand it.  It's NOT that difficult.  There, they're and their!  To, too and two!  Sun and Son!  ARRRRRRGHGHGH. 

Yes, I have been known to whip out markers and pens to start spell-checking and grammar editing posters.

Yes, I have fixed spelling mistakes in the teachers lounge on the teacher's whiteboard.

Yes, I will go on a rampage.  I hate that I see friends I usually love on Facebook misuse these because I totally start thinking less and less of them.  Especially when you can't spell or figure things out on the computer.  What is the red dashed line for?  How can you ignore it?!  It fixes it FOR YOU FOR GOODNESS' SAKE!

Arhg.  Rant over, but you can tell... it's a pet peeve!


  1. Just found your blog through the Currently Linky! Would love to go back to NY - have a great time!


  2. I totally know what you mean about the "there/their/they're"! I swear every week I put them on at least one of my 6th grader's spelling lists - yet it never seems to get any better! Ugh... I'm your newest follower. :)

    1. I know... No matter how many times you tell them, it never changes!

  3. Totally agree with the sleeping in-one of my favorite things to do! I would like a grocery fairy as well...I have to go on Monday.

    1. I really need a grocery fairy! I have to go tomorrow. I have to!!

  4. I can't wait to sleep in tomorrow!!!! As for grading, I have a practicum student in my room who did all of mine today. Wish I could share her with you. It's awesome, and they are so eager to grade!

    1. It's tough to get a student teacher, because I'm in the elective classroom and no one really says that's what they want to teach. (At least, not right away.) Enjoy the extra help in your room!

  5. Sleeping in and napping are my favorite things.

  7. Hi Lauren!

    Found your blog via Teacher Mom of 3 and I'm your newest follower. Totally new to this world of blogging, so I'm still just finding my way around, but I have to say that I'm loving it so far. I'm a student teacher in HS right now, moving on to middle school in about 6 weeks (super excited since I feel like middle schoolers have my heart!). Can't wait to read more of your posts.


    1. I'm glad that you stopped by! :) I'm on my way over to check out your blog!! :)

  8. I am with you on the grammar pet peeves. Your and you're are my sixth graders biggest mix-ups. Glad I found your blogger!
