Currently Lonely

Gosh here it is August 5th and I am just now getting to Farley’s currently. To say that I am happy to see her August Currently would be a lie. I have done everything I can to keep August away this year, but no luck. I have no magic power hidden away anywhere to make that happen. Anybody have some I can borrow? I just need to turn back timesay 10 years or so
My hubby is out fighting fire tonight. I was hoping they were over. We have had an over-abundance here in the sooner state. But it did rain some last night and the temps are down a bit, so maybe the heat and fires will soon be over for good.
I put my baby on a plane last night. The first time she has flown since she was three, and the very first time on her own. She made it all safe and sound and is enjoying a few days with her cousin. I was born in Arizona and haven’t been back in over 30 years. This is her first visit to the valley. She was shocked there were palm trees! Ha Ha she hasn’t even seen the pretty part of Az. yet.
Here's a picture her cousin snapped when she landed in Phoenix. 

I am doing my best to get ready for the 16th when we start school. I seem to be spinning my wheels this year. I’m sure it will all fall into place soon. 



  1. I'm from Arizona!! I hope your daughter has a fun trip and is ok with the heat. It's supposed to be hot this week! I'm in Northern AZ though and it was a beautiful day today, even some rain!
    So glad I linked up to this Currently, I was glad to find you and I'm your newest follower!

    1. Ahhh Northern Az is my favorite. I lived in Flagstaff when I was little then moved to Tempe, then OK when I was 15. I really miss the mountains sometimes.
      Thanks for following! Send some of that cool weather this way.

  2. Just drove through Oklahoma twice this week and saw quite a few fires off 35. So sad! We've had the same here in Texas and even saw 3 in Kansas! Glad you got some tax-free clothes! I got some this week in Iowa and Texas has theirs in a couple weeks! Enjoyed your currently and will have to forward my mom your blog! (she's a 1st, I'm 8th!!!)

  3. Oh my goodness, your blog header and all the fairy tale, story book characters are ADORABLE! I too have tried to keep August at bay, now I just want to fast-forward to the end of the month and know whether I have a classroom job or not.

  4. Do you think we spin and spin our wheels to stave off the inevitable & then we jump in & have a great time? I seem to find every single thing possible to do besides make the lists and start the plans. I know your daughter is leaving & that is part of it too, isn't it? Best wishes Tammy. Hope she has a good time visiting your old homeland.

  5. I found your blog through Farley's list of Currently's! It's so cute!! I can't believe August is here already either. I would LOVE to have a maid or an assistant! And, Diet Pepsi is a must. I also love my 31 bag...I forgot to mention that! :)

    Good luck getting everything ready!
