Now, for the October Currently from my blog crush, Farley at Oh' Boy Fourth Grade!

So, I am loving my new MacBook Pro but was definitely heartbroken when mine crashed Thursday night!  I knew it was getting bad after 8 loving years.  When I went to restart it after it froze (happened often), the hard drive just kept clicking and then a gray file folder appeared on a white screen with a question mark in the middle of it.  NOT GOOD!  I had most things backed up on a flash drive BUT most of the ELA work I downloaded blogging this summer is gone:(  I didn't have enough space on my flash drive (go figure!) and just got a new 8GB and was planning on backing it up this weekend (doesn't it always happen that way?).  I have one last hope...our computer guy is taking the computer to try one last retrieval of anything from the hard drive...fingers crossed!!

I really want to get my scrapbooking stuff organized and get something done but life is in the way (and my new hobby of blogging!).  

You should see the stack of papers I am behind in grading...yikes!  I literally cannot grade anything at school during my preps.  Every minute is spent copying, planning, getting absent work together, etc.  We are really feeling the crunch with cut staff.

The book, Fancy Nancy Thanksgiving Banquet, is one of my 5-year old daughter's new favorites for the Fall.  I love the Fancy Nancy books and all the neat vocabulary she uses.  My daughter loves the illustrations and Nancy's clothes:)

Have a great Columbus day weekend and thank you again for following me!  
Good luck with the giveaway!!


  1. Great looking giveaway!!
    I hope they are able to get some of your stuff back off you computer, fingers crossed! Good luck with the grading. That's the one part of my job I don't like so my assistant does it most of the time=)

  2. Congrats on 200 followers!!! I found you through Farley:) I LOVE my mac as well! Enjoy your new one, sorry to hear about the other one:( I haven't scrapbooked in like 3 years. It makes me sad. I've even drastically decreased the number of pictures I have taken over the last 2 years, to counter balance. So sad. But I did some card making last week. That filled a little void.

    Enjoy Monday off!!!

    We are ALL Special!
