Playing Catch Up!!!

Seriously, my last post was on March 26th & to make matters even worse it was only a TpT sale promotion. Geez Louise, I'm ashamed of my blogging self!!! So what has been going on with me the last couple of weeks, you might ask?!?!?

Well, in my family, we call the month of March "March Madness"!!! I swear it is one birthday after the other starting with my niece, then my other niece, then my daddy, then my sweet Parker who turned 3, and last but not least my hubby. Not only are we broke from all the birthday presents, but we are just flat out exhausted!!!

I *thought* Spring Break would instantly reunite me with my blogging self (more time=more blogging), but instead I've just been enjoying family time, eating, sleeping, and relishing in the simple things in life that often get missed or brushed to the side when I am in CRAZY teacher mode. I admit it's hard to turn my teacher switch off...like really, really hard, so I think this "off time" has been good for me... maybe not so much for my poor neglected blog though. I often think there is a misconception about blogger teachers being on top of it all! HA! Y'all should see my living room right now....hmmm...how can I describe it other than it looking like a toy store threw up all over everything??? Nice visual, huh?!? Oh and my lesson plans for next week were either written in invisible ink or are totally blank at the moment....GASP...and they probably will be until Sunday night...DOUBLE GASP!!! Yep, I'm just an ordinary first grade teacher trying to tread the rough waters of balancing life, too!!

BUT, Spring Break does the body good{even though mine did not involve the beach in any form or fashion other than looking at my friends' beach pics on Facebook *no, I'm not jealous*}. I'm feeling recharged & ready to blog again FINALLY!!!  I'll be posting a lot in the next few days (more differentiated math examples with freebies, plant/spring stuff, & a bunch of fun randomness, etc.) to get caught up!

 Gotta run because we're off to have family pictures made in a couple of hours & my little squirt just woke up from his nap demanding Chipmunks {the movie} and Cheetos!!! Fun stuff!!!

Thanks for sticking around with me during my "off time"!! Love y'all :)
