Currently May!

It's May!! I was beginning to feel like April would never end. The first part of the month passed quickly, but these last two weeks have really dragged. I think part of that may have to do with the fact that I've gotten so big recently that everything is more difficult and I'm just ready to be done. I would be okay with having this baby tomorrow (if I had enough sick leave for that).

Anyway, let's move on to my favorite linky: Farley's currently!!

Listening: We had a sick little boy this week and have gone through so much laundry it's ridiculous. Keagan is finally back to normal and in the clear, so hopefully we are back to a more reasonable amount of laundry. You know, until Caffrey gets here and we start crazy loads of baby everything...

Loving: We start our state tests in two weeks, so this is my last week to teach. I'll actually miss the last two weeks of school on top of that since our school's last day is June 12. Right now I'm scheduled to deliver on June 3, so my last day is May 28!

Thinking: I haven't been able to go in about three weeks and was hoping to make it back to class today, but Steven ended up needing to help a friend this morning. Oh well, I'll try to go and just do my own thing this week. Plus we may go walk around at the beach today. I need some salty air!

Wanting: I'm 35 weeks tomorrow, and this baby is already almost 5 1/2 pounds. Comfort is almost impossible...

Needing: Keagan has some newer summer clothes in his drawer, but I need to get the rest of his warm weather clothes out of the attic. Plus I haven't taken ANY of our baby stuff out. I need to start preparing!

Summer: This baby WILL be here in almost exactly one month! It's kind of taking over all of my thoughts right now (sorry!). Our house has been on the market since February, and I'd love for us to have a contract, close, and move by the end of July or earlier if possible. And the dream is closer to reality this time than my last pregnancy, but I'd LOVE to be at least back in most of my clothes by the time school starts back in September. I do have a lot of flowy dresses and tops, so that will help. I know to be realistic. My biggest thing is to be better off than I was last time.

What are you currently up to this month? And when do you get out of school?


  1. How exciting! So close to a new baby! I remember all too well the last uncomfortable weeks with my daughter (and she was born at 38 weeks!). Plus the excitement of a new house - so much happening! I hope you are able to relax as much a possible and drink in some quite time with your little one - everything changes when there are two babies!
    Good luck!

    1. Thanks! I really wouldn't mind 38 weeks. That would leave me with enough "sick days" to get paid all the way through. I'm still bracing myself for life with two "babies", although at least my first will be 3 1/2 by the time Caffrey arrives. I hope that makes things easier. We'll see!

  2. Oh my goodness! Congratulations on being so close to a new baby!! It's funny, because this past week was my last real "teaching week" as well. But we start state testing next week, and then we only have one and a half weeks left, and they are crammed full with awards ceremonies, field day, class parties, school talent show, etc. etc. So, we're in the same boat with that, but not for nearly the same reasons! Yours are much more exciting! :-)
    Hang in there with all of those big changes, and I wish you all of the luck in the world!

    1. Since I'm a reading specialist, I would actually be finished teaching after next week even if I weren't going on maternity leave. I help proctor tests until they are done, and then there isn't any point in pulling kids the last week because of everything going on. I just work on packing up my room and doing paperwork. Enjoy your last few weeks of school!

  3. Good luck as you prepare for your new arrival!! I hope everything goes well and your special delivery arrives safe, quick, and healthy!

  4. Congratulations!! Our last day of school is May 27 (with kids - then we have a teacher workday following that day, but I don't count it in my countdown, ha!). That's one nice thing about teaching in South Mississippi - start early, get out early! :)
