March is one of my favorite months! I’m loving the Currently template this time around!


LISTENING: So I starting working on this last night. While a napping three-year-old would be ideal, it is not looking likely right now! Though it is just about time for the little one to head to dreamland…

LOVING: My husband is from Cork, Ireland. His parents and five siblings all still live there. I take advantage of my “Irish by Marriage” status year round, but especially in March!

THINKING: I rolled over in bed a couple of nights ago and realized that I had been dreaming about fractions. My student teacher is at 100%, so she is doing all the teaching right now. Math and specifically fractions are the thing she is least comfortable with, so I have been working on some activities for them to do to help her out.

WANTING: One of the Irishman’s sisters was in town last week. She’d offered to babysit so we could go on a date night. Instead we had sick kids who got the two of us sick. I was reading this post and drooling. We are lacking in the babysitter department and usually only go out when we have family visit. My dad is the next to come visit. Here’s to hoping he offers to babysit!

NEEDING: All those fractions I’ve been thinking about? I’ve only finished 1/4 of the products I’ve started. I’d started this font back in January and finally finished it last night:


Then there are the projects around the house. My to do list might stand a chance if I didn’t keep adding to it! Sigh.

LIKE, LOVE, HATE: I know I cannot be the only ‘J’ in the world who hates finding things that start with the same letter as your first name. I play a game with my summer camp kids each year and think the same thing.

I’m a team player though, so here goes: I like jello. It isn’t my favorite. I don’t hate it. It is just a like.

I LOVE jellybeans. When I am REALLY stressed I can go through a bag without stopping. Both times I went back to work after maternity leave my husband bought me a Costco sized tub of jellybeans to get me through the first week.

I HATE juggling work and home. I throw my all into everything I do. Try as I might, I still feel like I am juggling to keep everything balanced. I always feel like I should be doing more!

  2. Hi Jenny! I also found you through Farley. My husband's Irish, too! Original last name was O'Leyne but someone dropped the "O" somewhere along the line.
    You did very well with the "j" words:)

  4. Ha! When I read your "hate" juggling, I was thinking why does she hate juggling? It must be a pretty crazy story! Reading now makes sense! I totally agree! It is hard to have an even balance.

  5. I'm laughing at Kim's comment...I was thinking "does she like dislike clowns?" (I do!!) Now I get the juggling thing! Jellybeans are the best! for me! Hope you get your date night and the font is ADORABLE!! Go to bed and think about something other than math! LOL! Cute post!

  6. Jenny,
    I SUPER love this font as much as I loved the heart one. I will be using this one all month. I need to make a response sheet for our listening station. I think I will use that one! :) That stinks on the babysitter department. I have a ton of family and friends nearby so I do not have that problem but I can empathize. :)

  7. Glad I found your blog over at Sister Teachers Giveaway:) I don't like juggling everything either. Just not enough hours in the day:)
