However, my Currently is NOT an April Fools joke. I'm terrible at pulling pranks. My best was one year when I was a substitute teacher. I was subbing for a class I had subbed for a few times before. I told them they were cancelling Spring Break this year because we had so much snow that year, and we were using them for makeup days. They bought it, until I busted out laughing. As I said, I'm terrible at pulling pranks! But I did find a few pranks posted by some bloggers that I might have to use next year. :-)
Anyway, on to April's Currently!
Listening- is anybody else always losing their remote to their TV? I can never find mine. And since I have 2, it gets worse! I am constantly losing them in the couch cushions or knocking them off the couch or the dog lays on them. :-( So it's quiet in here right now.
Loving- Yay Spring Break! I am so excited just to sleep in every day! Believe me, this weekend made up for like the last few weeks, cause I slept a TON. I guess I was tired! (And I'm obviously trying (again) to fight off some sinus crap. I have a doctors appointment today so I hope they can tell me why I still have fluid in my ears and my last sinus infection never actually went away.)
Thinking- I have a whole house that needs cleaned BADLY. I have a few things I'm dying to create for my classroom and TPT. (I won't create anything that I can't use!) I am also participating in another craft show event on April 13, and I need to make some taggies for it. I have a friend who is having a baby shower on April 14 and I need to make her baby blanket and a butterfly taggie. Does anybody else tend to give themselves entirely too much to do in a short timeframe?
Wanting- I have had this strange craving for banana pudding. I have seen 2 types of recipes on the internet- the kind that use boxed pudding mix, and the type you make the pudding yourself. I hate to cop out and used boxed mix, but I don't have a double boiler to make it myself. Sad times. No banana pudding for me, I guess.
Needing- I should probably get started on my to-do list! Cleaning and getting the taggies cut out so I can get them sewn. My goal is 2 a day, Monday-Friday. It's pretty lofty, but I'm going to try! I also have a few TPT/classroom ideas swimming around in my head, so I'll probably get started on those as well. Earth Day and Derby, here I come! :-) I also have some grad school homework for my 3 classes to work on. :-(
Advice- I'm a fairly new blogger myself, and I haven't been creating very long. I haven't made a ton of money doing so either. Sometimes I get upset or discouraged when I don't have 10 blog comments or a product doesn't sell right away. And then I remember that it takes time. I just have to make the best products I can, for ME, and if somebody else wants them, then that's awesome. I get giddy every time somebody purchases something on TPT or leaves me some thoughtful feedback- it's like an affirmation that somebody likes my stuff. So I've set a modest goal for myself, and I'm working on it, but I can't let life take a back seat. I am also in grad school, and that sucks up a lot of time, so I may not create things as fast as others, but I have to do what I can with what I have. I am not going to be a Deanna Jump right away, and probably never, so I just have to remember to do what I can. And this is my advice to new bloggers too.
So I just thought about how much grad school homework I have to complete this week, and now I'm feeling a little overwhelmed! I can't wait for grad school to be over!
