April is here! I'm CURRENTLY linking up with Farley !
I'm currently listening to some Ed Sheeran as I do some serious catching up on grading! How does one manage to let a stack get this high in one week!!!??? I love Ed. He is the ginger to my ale? lol #badpuns
I am LOVING that we have a holiday this Friday. I want to spend time relaxing and having some fun! I worked through most of Spring Break (when I wasn't napping!!) and I need to do something non-work related for once. Do you have any fun Easter traditions? My favorite memory is getting a CD each year in my Easter basket. I love music, and this was a big deal for me as kid. Here is my favorite Easter picture of all times from 1985!!!
That's me giving my little brother the side eye for being such a buttercup and ruining my photo op.
I mean seriously- Why would you cry over wearing such a fabulous bonnet? It's not every day you get to dress up in yellow linen! #iloveyoumom I had to crop out my dad because he is apparently a vampire. He hasn't aged a day in 30 years.
I have been in Spring Cleaning mode! It is difficult to focus on some of the current situations in my classroom because I keep thinking about next year and changes I want to make. Am I the only one who struggles with this? Maybe it was just a tough 3rd quarter, but I am seriously ready to move along! I have strategically taken a walk down the Kindergarten hall twice this week to remind myself of the hoopla that is to come and to get back on track with the present! I needed a reality check!
I need (ok maybe it is really a want) to read something for enjoyment. I feel like I consume a lot of content and information each day, but none of it is for pure fun! Do you have any good books you'd recommend? I love all types, but historical fiction and thrillers are my favorite!
My REAL name is unique. No, not Monique, I said unique. ;) I don't share it around here, but I will say I've never met anyone else with my name. This can be both good or bad.
My blog name is a fun play on words Not JANE stands for Not Just Any Nerdy Educator. I had all kinds of fun brainstorming for months (seriously) but with the help of my word nerd friend Krazytown, I ended up with my favorite blog name ever!
What are you up to currently? April is my birthday month, so be looking for some celebrations coming your way! :)
