Currently: August

Two blog posts in one day?!??!? This is madness!  I've been looking forward to the Currently post for a week or so now.... I cannot believe I forgot about it this morning!  Thank goodness for Bloglovin'.  I was reminded by a few people as soon as I opened it up.  So, here goes:
Listening: To the fan in the bedroom.  It's been warm here.  We've been sleeping downstairs actually.  But, I hate that mattress.  So I'm attempting to cool the bedroom down.  I'm doubtful that it's working.

Loving: I've been babysitting all week and having to get up at 5 am.  I usually wake up around then anyhow, but I don't actually get out of bed then.  It was nice to just lay there a while today and check out some things on my phone.

Thinking: My parents are coming Tuesday.  I'd like to have my house spotless.  Currently, it is not.  It is very very far from spotless.  I would just rather blog than clean.  It will happen though.  Probably 10 minutes before I get them from the airport.  Ha!

Wanting: I always want candy.  Always.  It's bad news.

Needing: A pedicure.  Mom and I are going on Wednesday though.... so just a few more days with ugly toes!  What colour should I do?  I'm thinking something neon.

1st Day Back: This is full of question marks because I don't know!  In Canada, we go back the day after labour day, which is September 2 this year.  However, in BC we are still on strike and things aren't looking awesome for heading back on that day.  It was announced at noon today that the two sides are meeting, but I am not getting my hopes up just yet.

Thanks Farley for doing this linkup month after month! One of my favourites!

    1. It is quite interesting. The government is playing dirty too. Can't say I've seen anything like it before. Thanks for the support!

  2. I was just thinking that I should be cleaning. We settled our contract earlier this summer, but I was a little concerned. I hope everything works out in B.C.

  3. Ah - a fellow BC girl! Yes, it will be interesting to go back (IF we go back) and my room is still sitting there full of books and desks. Oh please hope the custodian didn't mess things up too badly over the summer!
    Fingers crossed this gets resolved soon!

    1. It's driving me crazy too Brandi! I'm moving into a new classroom, and all my stuff is in bins. Needing to unpack badly! My worst fear is that we go in after school should have started and my room is a disaster!

  7. The strike business is so stressful. We, in Ontario, are going to be in your boat this year. The contract imposed by the government was just for two years. The time is up now. Good luck with everything!

  11. So are you prepared for the visit on Tuesday? Hope you and your mom enjoy your pedicure time! I went with a few friends a couple of weeks ago and loved it.

    I hope your strike situation gets resolved in your favor!
