Currently...September

Cannot believe that it is September 1st!

I'm keeping this one short and sweet because I don't want to be in front of the computer on my 3 day weekend.

So, I'm linking up with Farley to share what is currently happening in my life.


Listening: to "Ugly Betty."  This summer has been the summer of Netflix.  Loving the quirkiness of this series.

Loving: the quiet of a 3 day weekend.  There is nothing like it.  The ease into the morning with a cup of coffee and a pup snuggled up beside me....nothing like it.

Thinking: Each day I make myself a list of what I should do when I get into my classroom.  Yesterday I made my list because Tuesday will be crazy...graded papers home, behavior notes, all the craziness of a Monday. I know I'm missing something, but I can't for the life of me remember what it is.

Wanting: I need comfortable shoes.  I have plantar fascitis (?), my ankles hurt, and I can't find a pair of shoes that are cute and have support.  So, if you have any ideas, let me know. My days of wearing flats are gone.

Needing: My house to be FINISHED.  We are renovating grandma's house and it's not done yet! Ready to move into the other rooms already.

3 Trips:  Boston is on my top list.  I'm an American History nut and want to head there soon.  Venice is a dream vacation and hopefully, one day, hubs and I can go.  We're talking about spending the summer in Maine next year.  Can't wait to see that.

Head to Farley's and check everyone out!

  2. We are currently building our forever home and while it's exciting, the process seems very slow. I can't imagine living in the renovation. I hope you find a pair of comfy shoes soon!

  3. Boston is my favorite city!! It helps that I live close by, but it is so beautiful and full of history. I wear dansko clogs and they are amazing in terms of comfort. I am on the hunt for more "summery" comfy shoes though. Good luck!

  5. I also have had plantar fasciitis, which took at least a year to resolve, so I feel your pain. Here is what I have found that worked for me: Summer - Fit Flops, I won't wear anything else, ever. They are expensive but you can find them on sale at Nordstrom or Zappos sometimes. Try one pair and you will be hooked. Winter: Clarks makes some great shoes with really good support that look nice - there is a Clark's store in the mall and if you sign up for emails you can get some good coupons. I also purchase arch supports at FootSmart.com that I put in boots in the winter. Fitness shoes: Hoka One One, hands down the most comfortable and lightweight running shoe I have ever tried - and I have tried A LOT. This year, for the first time in years, I don't have the pain but it seemed to take an eternity to go away. I hope this helps....
