Currently I'm... #SOL15 Day 15

I am participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge (SOLSC; #SOL17) 
hosted by Two Writing Teachers
Each day for the month of March I will be posting a "Slice of Life". 
Please feel free to stop back and check out my other posts here.

I have seen "Currently I'm..." blog posts for a few years now. Before I had a blog! And I always thought they were fun & pretty interesting to read. I've seen a few pop up on SOLSC this month and I've enjoyed finding out about my fellow slicers. I even shared in comments on someone's post last week that an eighth grade teacher at my son's school has a "Currently I'm..." board behind her desk. She can update it with whiteboard marker to share more about herself with her students. Talk about a relationship builder!! And perfect that as an English teacher it provides a space for her to share what she's reading with her students...way to inspire a love of reading.

So, today I share my own version..

Currently I'm


I used to be a big TV watcher. Now, most of what I watch is what the rest of my family chooses- Bob's Burgers, The Middle, How I Met Your Mother. An interesting mix for sure. When I get the remote I usually am watching NCIS, or reruns of CSI Miami or Law and Order. 


so many books!! I had a great day at the bookstore this weekend where I read 10 picture books...that's my favorite! And I just finished Starr Sackstein's Teaching Students to Self-Assess. It was brilliant!


I am almost always listening to 2 audiobooks. Right now I'm listening to Another Day by David Levithan by myself and First Light by Rebecca Stead with my kids.


myself write every day. It's crazy that something I want so much is so hard to make happen. But today is day 15 and I have done it. I look forward to continuing to make myself stick with it!


Tired! I went to see a musical in San Francisco last night, so I was out late and only got about 4 hours of sleep. Add that to the running around and managing needed for our family of 5...I'm tired! It's pretty much a constant.


A lovely week of down time and productivity (we'll see how well it goes trying to accomplish BOTH of those) next week on our Spring Break.  Sleeping in, lunch dates, trips to the library & bookstore, spring cleaning, a movie or two, exercise with my kids, and of course writing time!


My family. Always. I love watching the big kids my children are growing into. I love seeing their interests grow and develop. I love seeing them get excited about information and learning. I love seeing them navigate the world of relationships and growing up. I love spending time with them and enjoying each others' company.


  1. I like your form for this slice and the "currently I'm" idea. I am totally with you on celebrating making it to Day 15.

  2. This is a great format- I can really see using this and I enjoyed seeing that we are all in similar shoes!
