It's Farley Time and some news!

Another school year has come to a close!  I can't believe that I have been teaching 14 years already.  This year has been a challenging one to say the least.  

My hubby decided last June to interview for a position at Groupon.  He was super pumped about the opportunity but unfortunately the job was located in Chicago.  Since he is super gifted at what he does he of course got the job.  

Since the school year had just started, I stayed in Ohio to finish out the year and my husband moved to the city.  I know.......very fun.....

So my poor little blog has been very neglected this year unfortunately:(  But I decided to start the summer off right!  By doing a blog post and a Farley link up.

LISTENING:  My son is currently into watching Mickey on Netflix.  I must say I do enjoy Mickey more than Busytown Mysteries.

LOVING:  My niece is visiting for the week and my kids are so happy!!  I love it when my kids are happy.  The bonus for me is that she is helping me pack up my classroom while my daughter finishes out school.

THINKING:  WE NEED A HOME!  My husband and I are trying to find a place to rent in the Chicago area.  I think that we have narrowed it down to the Naperville area.  He goes out with the realtor again on Wednesday.

WANTING:  I am in the middle of packing up 14 years of teaching and it is a total bummer.  Don't worry I am getting rid of stuff and I am not keeping anything that I haven't used recently.  I am totally done with paper files.  I recycled my last few today.  I am looking forward to getting my classroom completed so that I can focus on packing up my house.

NEEDING:  I need to complete the final steps so that I can legally teach in Illinois.  I have three tests scheduled for June.  The first one is on Thursday.  Fingers crossed that I pass:)  I really need to be able to get a job:)

Well that's all for tonight folks!!  I need to get some studying in for my exam on Thursday!!  I look forward to reading some Farely posts and catching up with the land of blogging.
