Currently April

It's April! Spring is here! 

Time for Currently with Farley

Listening: At least I was listening to silence when I started this. Now though, my 5 year old is awake and calling me! 

Loving: Right now our weather is nice here in Texas. Fingers crossed it stays this way for today. I have 4 baseball games to watch!!! 

Thinking: Even though I forbade him, my son is turning 18. I wish he would stop getting older!!! I am wanting to make it special of course, it's a big deal! For me, this child is growing up too fast. 18 in a few days and graduation in 2 months. AAAGGHHH!!!! 

Wanting: Can I get an AMEN?! This whole state testing is ridiculous!!!! 

Needing: I have been fighting this thing all morning. I guess it knows I am trying to get stuff done. 

My name: I grew up in a town called Harker Heights. The newspaper was called The Harker Heights Herald. Fast forward a gazillion years, a collegaue and I started an end of the day writing wrap up. She named her's The Roddy's Ramblings to match her last name. My last name was Golaboff at the time. I named mine the Golaboff Gazette. When I started my blog, I wanted a cute name, but my last name was Hodges now. The first thing that came to me was The Herald from growing up, so I used it and now it has stuck!  

Well, Happy Saturday and I hope you have enjoyed learning something new about me, Be sure to check out this awesome link up with Farley

  1. I love your blog name. It's perfect. Happy 18th to your son. My oldest is eleven, and it seems like he was a baby such a short time ago. We're in the middle of NWEA testing, then we start state testing the last week of April. It would be nice if the testing vanished!

  2. 18 and 5!! Wow you must be wonder woman!
    The weather is nice here in Memphis too! The weather guys say we're good til Monday, but I do call them, "Weather Guessers"! Great day for ball games.
    Enjoy your day.

  3. I couldn't agree more about state testing! Ours is coming up too, it's our first year with the new assessment and we are all stressed about it. Have fun planning the birthday, it's crazy how fast they grow up!

  4. I teach kindergarten so there isn't state testing, but computerized, standardized testing none the less. They have to drag me to the computer lab screaming. I tell the kids we're doing a game and IT DOESN'T MATTER. ugh. Enjoy every minute with that young man of yours– the time will zoom now. See you around. Kathleen
