Hoping that linking up with Farley for September Currently will get be back into the blogging grove. School is awesome but is kicking my but!

Listening: When I moved down to NC I started catching episodes of the Andy Griffith Show, and learned its roots down here so I am now trying to watch all the episodes on Netflix. I am in the middle of season 6 (of 8) now. Wouldn't it be wonderful if people still respected police, teachers, and adults in general like they did then?

Loving/Needing: Friday night I slept for about 10 hours, took a four hour nap Saturday afternoon, and then slept for another 9 hours that night. I love my sleep. Though I could still use more, we all know that back to school teacher tired!

Wanting: A couple weeks ago we got the bills for some doctor visits for my husbands heart, along with a visit for stomach issues, we met our deductible and out of pocket maximum. Along with that when we moved to NC last year, we had to put a lot of expenses on the credit cards. O and then we needed to buy a new washer and dryer, thankfully there were awesome Labor Day Deals. So we simply can not afford to go to NY for Christmas. 

3 Trips: This was hard because I do not have a real desire to travel. I have always wanted to go to Germany, I simply love learning about WWII and would love to see a concentration camp and experience the history. I am 3/4 Italian so I would love to go to Italy. Finally seeing how I teach NC history and about the lighthouses I would love to travel down the coast and see the places I teach about.

  2. I also love learning about WWII and would like to visit the camps and see the places that I have spent a good portion of my life reading and learning about.

  3. I love the Andy Griffith show. Such a classic. I'm sorry about New York. I hope you get your debt payed off soon. I know what that feels like. I'm not sure I will ever have mine payed off. Ugh!
