Can't Live Without It Linky--Come Join the Fun!

Hey everybody,

I think I'm ready to get this linky in full swing again.  Life happened.  Things got busy, and I put this on the back burner.

By the way, if you want to know more about my reasons behind this linky, head to my original post {here}.   If you'd like to join me, grab this button:


For this Can't Live Without It post, I'd like to share with you an e-mail service that I can't live without each weekend morning.

Have you heard of theSkimm?


Here's what they say about the service: "theSkimm is the daily e-mail newsletter that gives you everything you need to start your day.  We do the reading for you- across subject lines and party lines- and break it down with fresh editorial content."

Basically, I can stay current with what is happening in the world and not have to watch the news to do it.  I don't know about you, but I just can't watch the news anymore.

Plus, these gals are witty and entertaining.  Often, I laugh out loud.  Not a bad way to start the day, right?

I'd love for you to link up your ideas and things that you can't live without.  It can be something you can't live without to make your life easier, something you can't live without at home or at school. Really, anything that qualifies for something you can't live without is fine!  For more instructions on ideas about what you can add, please read the original post {here}.

Currently March 2015

What have you been up to lately?

Listening: Currently listening to my son clean up his mess in the kitchen.  I think he knew better because I spent the whole.day.cleaning.  Like the.whole.day.
Loving: Donors Choose!  I just got a special professional development project funded and I'm soooo excited!  I'll share more about it soon once the details are finalized and I know more about how it all works.
Thinking: I should really be working on my classwork for the Cultural Diversity class that I'm taking right now.  I'm currently taking one of the classes to get my ESOL endorsement.  This is my first of 5 classes.  Long road ahead...
Wanting: I am going to do another round of Whole30.  Have you heard of it?  Although my husband and I started eating healthy (mainly vegan) in 2014, we started to slip as the school year began.  Last fall, I saw posts by Rachelle (What the Teacher Wants and For Blogness' Sake) about Whole30.  I read the book, It Starts with Food and completed one round of Whole 30.  Now, I'm ready to complete another one to get me ready for my spring break plans....
keep-calm-ig
Needing: I'm not feeling all that great.  I need to get some Zicam to knock out whatever is making me feel cruddy.  (Could also have something to do with the fact that I've been eating poorly.)
Spring Break Plans: NYC!  I'm taking my daughter to New York City for Spring Break!  We are super excited!  Do you have some must-do ideas for us?

And...you know you're 1) a teacher when and
2) excited when...

So what have you been up to Currently?
