July Currently

Here goes my first ever "Currently" run by the fantabulous Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade ...

Listening: I developed pneumonia, which landed me in the ER on Sunday, so I've been up since the crack of dawn hacking away in accompaniment to the twittering birdies outside. 
Loving: In 13 days I'll be on vacation! Disney World for 3 days, Georgia for 2.5 days,  then New Hampshire for a week.
Thinking: My immune system better be back to normal by then! I don't want to spend the 24 hour road trip coughing in the car.
Wanting: I've only been able to manage a mostly liquid diet since getting sick. The prospect of a fruit smoothie is more lip smacking than the chicken broth, hot tea, Gingerale, and water I've been sipping the past few days.
Needing: Cough syrup with codeine KNOCKS. ME. OUT. Which is why I've been trying to take it less daytime, but definitely before bed so I can rest. However, I tossed and turned last night so am gonna need a nap before this afternoon's follow-up doctor appointment.
4th plans: The plan is to see fireworks, possibly at the beach. Tropical storm Arthur may change the plan.
 Worse case scenario, I see them somewhere else during the weekend after Arthur blows away.
Happy July!!!


  1. Hey Renee! I found you on the July currently! I'm a 3rd grade teacher, too - from Mass. I'm sorry to hear you have been so sick; there was a nasty cold going around at the end of the school year; it's too bad you ended up with pneumonia. I'm your newest follower, too! Love your polka dot theme!
    Feel better!

  2. Hi Renee! I'm so sorry to hear about your pneumonia! I got it in the fall, and it's serious business. Hold true to your meds and strict rest! It's a hard recovery. I sure hope it mends itself before you go to Disney. That sounds like such a fun vacation!

    Have a wonderful Fourth of July!

  4. Oh no! I had pneumonia, a very bad case, when I was 17 that landed me in the hospital for 16 days. It was an awful experience. I hope you get to feeling better and get to enjoy your holiday! :)
