October Currently

It's hard to believe that it's time for another Currently!  October?  How did this happen?
Listening:  I must admit that politics bore me!  My husband is watching.

Loving:  After 18 months of training, the Chicago Marathon is this Sunday!  I'm as ready as I'll ever be.  Let's hope it's a quick 26.2 miles!!

Thinking:  The weather in Indiana is getting cooler.  I need to put away the capris and sandals and get out the long pants and flats!  I'm sure as soon as I do we'll have an Indian Summer!

Wanting:  Need I say more!!

Needing:  Parent/Teacher Conferences are next week (that's right, I'll be back at school first thing Monday morning less than 24 hours after running a marathon).  I need to get my reports ready to go!

Book: One of my greatest memories of elementary school was my 2nd grade teacher reading The Gobble-uns 'll Git You Ef You Don't Watch Out by James Whitcomb Riley.  She read it just like the voice it was written.  The thought of goblins getting me scared me to death!  I like to read the book to my students during our Halloween party but I'll never be able to do it like Mrs. Smalley did!!
Head over to Oh' Boy 4th Grade and link up with Farley for October's Currently (or the gobble-uns'll git you)!
