"I Have Been" 3

I've done this cute little meme a few times before, and since it has been a few months, I decided it was time to pull it out once more. :) Let me know if you decide to participate!

I have been:

 A little bit of everything. :) I'm working on a new writing project (only a little at a time, since typing for too long kills my hands). I've also been revamping lessons and creating new resources for my students. I typed up a sample essay for The Great Gatsby last week since I wanted them to see what I was going for! I also spent some time last night catching up on writing some posts!

I've been having a little bit of reading ADD. I'm still in the midst of Anna Karenina, but I'm also making steady progress in my Willa Cather Project. I also have my eye on a few YA titles lingering on my shelves. So....yeah, I'm a little unfocused. :)
I've been listening to Muse's newest album all day in preparation for going to their concert in a couple of weeks. :)
Matt and I have been hooked on HGTV recently, and for no reason since we still live in an apartment! But I think we like getting ideas because...
...we're looking at purchasing a home before the end of the year! We've done all kinds of budgeting, etc, and I think we'll be ready to make that big step towards searching for a new home by the fall. In the meantime, we keep looking online for houses and gathering ideas about what we want. :) It's a fun hobby!
A lot about going gluten free! My doctor suggested it as a way to feel healthier, and I have to say, since reducing my gluten intake (to almost nothing), I have felt a lot better. It's a challenge, for sure, but I like feeling like I am doing good things for my body.
Just a little achy today. I've been fighting off a cold for the last week or so, and I think it's starting to settle in (yuck). Hopefully it is over with soon. 
The Muse concert in a couple of weeks! Its going to be a blast (we have floor tickets). I'm also excited to get to my Spring Break. I thought that I would have time this weekend (no school yesterday or today) to go through clothes to donate, but I just couldn't get to it. I can't wait to clean everything out and get rid of our extra clutter. 
For a good night's sleep tonight. My aches and sniffles kept me awake last night.
Also hoping that my sophomores have good essays to turn in this week. ;)
My husband.
Buying new clothes (my pants were too big). 
Feeling positive about myself. :)


  1. Any chance your students are more excited to read The Great Gatsby because of the movie coming out this year? It's making me really want to read it again...

  2. Love this! Totally stealing it to schedule for next week. :D

    Great stuff. I need to get some new pants myself.

  3. Wow, Muse. We went to see in December and it was absolutely spectacular. I'm sure you'll have fun :)

  4. Ah, Muse concert! So unfair! Privileged Americans ;)

  5. I love this post!! May do it myself :) So exciting that you're looking for a new home! I am too actually :) Going to look at two on Sunday!

  6. That's wonderful that you may be able to buy a home. Good luck. I hope you enjoy Anna Karenina. I didn't enjoy it as much as War and Peace, but it's still pretty great. Have fun at the Muse concert. I love them, and they're incredible live.

  7. I love these little tidbits. Thanks for sharing, and I hope you enjoy Muse. :)

  8. Love this meme! I think it would be a nice Sunday post. I typically wind up doing a kind of reflective post on Sunday anyway and this would give me a format so I don't ramble. It sounds like you've got quite a lot of exciting things on the horizon! Good luck!
