Currently freaked out by air cleaners … save me from the air cleaners!



Listening: To Air Cleaners

Some of you might not know but everyone in my house has allergies. But the HUBBY has serious allergies, neti pot allergies, sinus issues allergies, pills, tissues, and AIR CLEANERS allergies.  Every room has air cleaners. EVERY ROOM… So if the boys are asleep and it seems like the house should finally be quiet….nope…then I hear the white noise of air cleaners.   It kind of bugs. THE HOUSE IS NEVER QUIET!!!! I’M NOT SHOUTING! I am emphasizing that air cleaners are NOISY. During power outages I am in heaven! But I love him… and his air cleaners.

Loving: The Beach

And, really, who doesn’t ?  post 1

He loves the beach… thrilled to be beach-bound

and singing “California Dreaming” in the car.

Playing with each other makes the beach amazing… and SPF 5 million makes it safe. Jackson says I sunscreen him within an inch of his life. Justin says thank you to me most mornings for “sunscreen-ing” our little guy. Nobody likes skin cancer, least of all me.

Last summer I paid for my baby oil days…but only one spot was “borderline” and they got it all. So now I wear SPF 5 million (overachiever) and a hat! My hubby has said it for years…

“Wear a hat Katie.”

“Are you wearing sunscreen Katie? REAL Sunscreen? Blush is not sunscreen even if it says SPF 20”

“Did you sunscreen? You look pink!”

And now (after the doctor and her scalpel happy hands)

I listen…

Anyway back to the beach…

Too precious for words

Does his face just capture childhood or is just me?

Thinking/ Wanting

Thinking: 3 day weekends RoCk!

Wanting: a 4 day weekend (overachiever… I know)


Needing: Closure

I’ll blog about this once I can handle it without a breakdown.



1. Exercise…. just to keep from imploding from stress. I HATE exercise. I really do, but it helps bring a certain centering to my day. I’m going to go for broke and sweat.

2. Dream BIG

3. Take Time to: leave my classroom prepped for the next day, to pray (maybe with the air cleaners off), to play with my son, to remind my hubby of how great he is, and write some love notes to the people around me.

I can’t wait to read your Currently posts, especially the | parts. Link back up with Farley {here}.

PS You know the love notes part? I really like to send encouraging cards “love notes” to my friends.  But recently I have been sending text messages… It’s not the same as something nice in the mail… Lisa Mattes just sent me a Box-O-Love and I just about died with joy! It was filled with the sweetest treasures and a note.  I love ya’ girl! What’s the nicest or most recent surprise you got in the mail that made you smile?
