Currently...and a Giveaway Soon ;)

I'm beginning to wonder where the time is going?  I thought I just did one of these?  Well, it's time again for Farley's Currently...

I wish I were also linking up with my bud, Tara for a Monday Made It, but I've got nothin'.

Instead, I spent the weekend living it up with my high school BFFs.  We were there to celebrate their 40th birthdays.  Yes, plural.  My besties from high school are twins.  This is not the best picture, but here we are:

 I'm the short one, of course. Ignore the evil eyes. I was really being nice that night.  Swear.

On to the Currently:

My needing:
Every year when I head back to school I fight the back to school crud.  I know I'm not alone.  For me, here's the issue.  I'm allergic to dust and mold.  Ahem...a school building is made of those two things.  Right? Once the nose starts a-going and the post-nasaly stuff gets going...well, it usually turns to Bronchitis.  I'm hoping it doesn't manifest itself that way right now. 

I have Open House tomorrow!

We are combining 4th and 5th grade presentations to explain to parents how we are departmentalizing this year.  I've been elected the speaker (thanks, Brandee). 

Fingers crossed that I talk tomorrow.

Hence the "Not Making It Monday" for me...I'm off to curl up in bed and rest.

Maybe I'll make it tomorrow with item number 3 of my favorite things.

Go link up with Farley and remember the rule of 3.  

Wondering about the giveaway part of my title? I've got a great new "Fabulous Find" that I'm going to be giving away later this week.  Want a hint?  Look down on the bottom right side bar under "Products I Love"....stay tuned....
