Currently in April

It’s been awhile since I have participated in the Currently Linky with Farley over at Oh’ Boy 4th Grade so I thought today would be a great one!

Listening- Yes, I am addicted and catching up on seasons past. Already have caught up on Pretty Little Liars during Spring Break.

Loving- This Friday the hubby and I will celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We are headed out of town for the weekend and I’ve already set up my away message for my email while I’m gone! :)

Thinking- Yesterday I sat down with my April calendar and put deadlines for some products that I want to get out this month and completed. Also added in some times for getting all the goody bags together for the AAMLE conference the first week of May.

Wanting- Yes, I am always wanting a massage and hubs doesn’t do them very well. Guess I should make an appointment sometime soon.

Needing- Allergies are just the bane of my existence. Every morning I wake up with eyes that are caked together as if they have been taped shut with Duct Tape. Then of course they are watery beyond belief the rest of the day. My poor furbaby Sookie joins in the misery of allergies with me.

Hours and Last Day- I’m typically in my office to work from 9am to 6pm (when hubby gets home). I rarely take a day off but will sometimes fluctuate my schedule depending on what needs to be done personally. At least half of my day is spent answering emails, working on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.) and the like. Making sure my communication lines are open with you is the first goal I have everyday.

Speaking of that… I thought I would update you on the plans for this month so YOU can hold me accountable! Each of these dates are TARGETED deadlines!

April 3- 8th Grade Linear Functions to Proofreader

April 9- 6th Grade Numbers and Opposites to Proofreader

April 11- 7th Grade Probability to Proofreader

April 16- Samples for Linear Functions and Numbers and Opposites Complete

April 18- Probability Samples Complete

April 22- 8th Grade Linear Models and Tables to Proofreader

April 25- 6th Grade Equations and Inequalities to Proofreader

April 29- Samples for Linear Models Complete

April 30- Samples for Equations and Inequalities Complete

WHEW! That’s a lot and I totally hope that it can happen as well as all the other things that I have planned in this month.

Have you participated in the Currently Linky? Leave a comment as I would LOVE to come on over and check yours out as well. :)

    I am on spring break, so I have been catching up on my Netflix shows, too! I just finished Orange is the New Black and Breaking Bad… loved them both! Have you checked out Groupon for massages? I bought a pack of three massages for a great price! Enjoy your anniversary!! :)

    • I’ve heard great things about Orange is the New Black and need to check it out. I don’t know if Breaking Bad is for me. I have looked at Amazon Local for massages but just haven’t broken down and bought one. Need to do so.

    Happy Anniversary! Enjoy your your weekend away :)

    Btw–I love your targeted deadlines! I have a lot going on at home so my deadlines wouldn’t be as frequent–it is definitely a great way to keep yourself accountable! Do you have a checklist or steps that you follow before you publish a product?

    • Jen-

      Thank you! I am excited to go away for the weekend and hope that there are great things in store.

      The deadlines are crazy and I am using my planner that I had created by MissMathDork to have it all planned out for me. It’s written in pencil but with big highlights across the deadlines so I know what is coming!

      I don’t use a checklist persay for my products because I’ve been doing these units so long. I have a list of the steps written out and just go down it each time. I did find a Product Planning Freebie by The Eager Teacher that you can grab!

      Hope this helps!

    Hi, Jennifer! I spied your fun button on Farley’s Currently linky party and hopped over here to read your post. We must be soul sisters with our love for long “to do” lists. Haha! Have a fabulous day!

    Hi Jennifer, It sounds like you work from home. Did you used to teach? I only ask because I am planning on taking time away from teaching to work more on Teachers Pay Teachers. I’d love to what your challenges have been working from home, and any advice you may have. Happy Anniversary! :)

    • Kristin,

      I have spent the last year at home and am loving it. I taught for 9 years prior to taking this year off. I have spent my time making connections with followers, other full-time teacherpreneurs and districts to see what I can do to meet their needs.

      I found that the best thing for me was to find a Mastermind group to bounce ideas off of. I have two women who are still in the classroom and they really are a great sounding board not only for me but all of us for each other. It means the world to me to know that I can send them anything and they will give me their honest opinion. Nevermind the fact that we have nightly Skype chats! :)

      Hope this helps and feel free to ask more questions.

Leave some Love...
