Sunday Scoop

Ack!  I can't believe it has been almost 2 months since I last blogged!  The holidays were a busy time in our household, and between working full time, being a mommy and wife, and preparing for Christmas, I totally slacked off in the everything-that-doesn't-absolutely-have-to-be-done department.  But I'm back, and I've got a few blog posts planned and I hope you learn something over the next few months:)

Today, I'm linking up with The Teaching Trio and The Sunday Scoop.

Things I HAVE to do:
I talk to my dad every weekend, and I've not talked to him yet today.  
I got much of the house clean yesterday, but I still need to sweep and mop.  The flu bug has hit our home hard this year - myself, my son, and my daughter all have had it within the past week and a half.  So I've been home all week (goodbye paid days off for the rest of the year...) and have been able to keep up with the laundry (woo-boo), and general cleaning (yeah!).  But sweeping and mopping have yet to be done.
I've been doing an App of the Month with my staff for the past two years, and it has really done well. I need to pick a new app to highlight and give a 30 minute PD for this month - any ideas?

Things I HOPE to do:
I've been working on a new product for TPT for a few weeks now (I've been working on it in my head for several months...), and I'd love to finish it up this week.  We're expecting ice in the morning, so I may get a snow day tomorrow to work on it?!?
My upstairs rarely gets used (my closet, bathroom, and a guest room are up there), so it ends up being a dumping ground for clothes and crafty stuff.  I've still not organized everything I got for Christmas and I honestly have not put away all of my summer clothes (please don't judge me:)).  I'd love to get this task completed:)

Thing I'm HAPPY to do:
I rented If I Stay, and I look forward to snuggling on the couch with my hubby and watching:)  Naptime can't come soon enough!

How is your week looking?


  1. Relaxing is always good! Good luck with completing your TpT product! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I definitely recommend the VoiceThread app for digital storytelling if you haven't done that one yet. I also just put ChatterPix on all of our iPads. My teachers love but it's so finicky, I'm really hoping that ChatterPix will replace our use of it!
