First of all, I have been SUPER UPER DUPER....x25
I know we all are, but I have really struggled with finding the right mix of wife, housewife (aka, cleaning, fixing up new house, etc...), blogger (trying to keep up with YOU fabulous bloggers), teacher, friend, daughter...and it just doesn't all mesh so well sometimes.
So, the last few weeks I picked being a wife, daughter, teacher, housewife.
So as promised here is my March Currently from the fabulose-O Farley over at:
I almost cried reading over my comments from all of you amazing people who choose to read my little blog.
Mainly, I felt SAD because I felt so guilty that I hadn't been able to visit each new blog that left a comment, or reply to all of my friends that have sent me words of encouragement...especially my good friend Heather.
:( I am SO SORRY you sent me all those sweet comments and I didn't respond to each one. You are the greatest. seriously.
So...while I was MIA ...I got the Top 10 Blogger Award several times and The One Lovely Blog Award. Is it just me or do Awards make you feel honored yet stressed?????
PLEASE do not misunderstand me...I LOVE LOVE LOVE them but I get stressed because I am a rule follower and honestly, I have been dreading this post because of the awards part. I don't know who to give these awards to that doesn't already have them...but I am going to try my best.
I am totally NOT deserving of these awards guys but a HUGE thank you for an awesome award:
A special thank you to Heather from Beg, Borrow, and Teachhttp, Erika from The Honey Bunch, Mrs. Au from 2nd Grade Rocks, and Cynthia from 2nd Grade Pad for this award.

Sometimes it feels good to break the rules...although I have hives in the process...not so good.
Lastly, if you followed this WHOLE post and stayed awake and with me here is the freebie!! I told you in the currently I needed ideas so this may not be a very good freebie but...I used it and maybe you can too!
I needed cute but simple word work tub labels. I cut these babies out and glued them onto index cards and laminated them.
String a word BTW is letter beads strung on fun colored pipe cleaners. If you need explanation for any other label please let me know.
Also, I will absolutely create these to fit your needs if you would let me know what you want your labels to say either in a comment or send me an email.
I hope you can use these. Grab them HERE. If anyone wants to share how to attach the link for the download with a picture that would be awesome.
Thanks for sticking with me even when I am MIA!
