February Currently

I know what you are thinking, "What is she doing?  She is going to be the very last person to link up for 'Currently' this month.  What's the point?"  I know that this is assuring myself a spot in the Slacker Hall of Fame, but late is better than never.  Who knows, maybe I wanted to be the last person to link up (can't say I don't have goals).

I like listening to books on tape, CD, playaway or whatever.  Let's face it, it doesn't matter what age we are, we still love to be read to.  I have always been a fan of Dean Koontz.  Lightning was one of my absolute favorites by him.  I download most of the books on my phone from the local library and listen to them on my commute or while up in my new office (more on that).

We have a 4 bedroom house.  Each of the girls have their own room, our room, and then a guest room.  The guest room used to have a queen size bed in it.  It was always my hot spot for dumping things.  More and more, anyone who visits us is a singleton, so why the need for the double bed?  Enter my wonderful mom who suggested I put in a day bed and make the rest of the room my office.  She. Is. Brilliant!  I don't have any before pictures, but here are some afters.  I am not done (walls need more color), but you get the idea.

We have 2 more weeks of our school wide Fountas and Pinnell testing.  I feel like I am drowning in a good way.

Don't think I need to comment!

Love having Lilah around.  She is really starting to settle in, she's getting used to her crate, and knock on wood, we have not had an accident in the house in a month.  HOWEVER, I am having a problem with all of the dog hair on my dress clothes.  I use the little rolls of tape on a handle (don't know what they are called), but it is not good enough.  Her hair is short and coarse, so it really grabs a hold of my dress clothes and won't let go.  Any ideas are welcome!

2 Truths and a Fib
Yes, I could do the limbo on roller skates. I am not sure what the current world record is, but my best was
8 inches.  I looked a lot like this:

I do have an aunt named Betty Crocker!

The last is the fib.  I did enter the Miss Macomb pageant while in college.  Most embarrassing moment of my life was when they called my contestant number as the winner, but someone else's name.  For a whole 2 minutes I shared the title with the other girls until the judges confirmed it was not me who won, it was her.  I like to think of those moments as character building.  I built A LOT of character that day! :)

Thanks for reading!


  1. What a slacker! or should I say hard worker?? Your bedroom make-over looks great, and I can't imagine school-wide Fountas and Pinnell testing. Ugh! You have a good excuse, and I hope the rest of February is snow free. It's ~60 degrees here, and I'm seeing grass poke through from the 15 inches of snow we got last Thursday. :-)

  2. Amy, your guest room - office looks great. We have a four bedroom house too. All of our rooms are filled with children. :)

  3. Hi there! I am visiting from the currently linky party. :) I love your new office! I as well have a guest room/office. You really can never get enough rooms in a house!

  4. I love the daybed in your office! It's perfect and I think I want to do something similar! Thanks for sharing and p.s. I think I'm going to be the last one to post in Currently this month!
