Sunday Scoop

I haven't done this linky in a while, but I really like how it helps you lay out your plans for the week. Of course, when I started it, I realized that I'm actually ahead this week (for once) and didn't have a ton to say. Still, I wanted to participate!

Have to: Our house is on the market, so I feel like we're constantly cleaning. This weekend was the first in a few weeks that we didn't have any showings, so we slacked a little. With two dogs and a toddler, though, we are in MAJOR need of some vacuuming! And this book, I've had it on my list for about a month now and just haven't gotten around to reading it. Oops!

Hope to: Like I said, I'm a little ahead right now. Everything is already copied and ready to go for this week. BUT I want to go ahead and finish everything up to Spring Break before this week's over so I can focus on plans for after break before I leave April 3. I actually only have about 4 weeks of teaching after break before I start being pulled to help with testing, and then I go out on maternity leave! Crazy, huh?
As far as the home life goes, I just started Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl author). So far it's pretty good, but I need some time to sit and enjoy it.

Happy to: Like I said, maternity leave is just around the corner (10 weeks away actually), but I haven't done ANYTHING to really prepare. I mean, we have all the necessities from Keagan (except diapers), so it's not that big of a deal. Still, I can't wait to start putting his room together. Since our house is on the market, we're not really doing that yet, but I do want to go ahead and get the bedding. Pottery Barn Kids has some cute bedding that I'm looking at. Just need to make a decision...

What are your plans for the week?


  1. I am heading back this week after 4 weeks of "maternity" leave, I just adopted a 2 year old!!! I love hearing someone say they are ahead!!! My goal is go back after Spring Break AHEAD of the game!!!! Good luck getting things ready!!!

  2. Strategies That Work is one of my go-to books! I can see it on my shelf right now. :-) I've tried books by Gillian Flynn other than Gone Girl, but they were a tad too dark for me. I'll keep you posted about The Girl on the Train. I was hoping to start it tonight, but a few hours of grading turned in to several and now it's almost bedtime. Where does the time go?? Have a great week!

  3. Congrats on your little one! Decorating is always the most fun! I hope you post pictures!

  4. Choosing bedding for a nursery was hard for me....both times! I'll have to check in with you later to see how you liked Sharp Objects. I'm on the waiting list for that one.
