Currently August

Another school year. It's amazing how fast two months can go by. I'm linking up with Farley from Oh'Boy4thGrade. I just love her monthly linky!

I apologize in advance for typos and misspellings! I'm so sleep deprived right now. School officially started for me on Monday. I've been so BUSY and so STRESSED. I just have too much to do and not enough time. My sleep has taken the back seat in order to complete all I need to do. 

So, it's rather late right now and I should be sleeping but what happens when you are stressed?? Insomnia! (don't worry, the kids haven't started yet).That's the worst thing! I think most of my items are self explanatory but I will write about my must haves:

1. New colorful pens!! I LOVE pens. In fact I love all types of stationary products. "Hi my name is Cindy, I'm addicted to stationary products". I was in Vegas over the summer and found a little shop in the China Town district that had 3 huge tables of journals and notebooks. It was pure paper heaven! My husband just could not understand why I had to touch and look at every notebook/journal. Well, lets just say I have many fun cute notebooks to last me quite a while. What goes best with notebooks/journals - PENS! I'm quite picky about my pens too. They must be extra fine tip and that is hard to find in fun colors. 

Look at all those notebooks!

2. Lunch tote: I totally blame the fact that I must get a new lunch tote on my parents. When I was young it was a tradition they would buy me a new lunchbox every school year. Back when I was a kid..... Well, let's just say they don't make them like that anymore :(  I haven't found a new lunch tote this year. It's really making me feel odd this year. I got this idea after watching a news report on how unsanitary most lunch totes are that maybe I should go old school this year and put my stuff in a brown paper bag. Well, it's not working out so well.

3. Fast quick breakfast items. My drive to school is about 20 miles. Which means I leave my house early because I like to get to work early too. I'm one of those people that gets stuck in food ruts. I have the same thing every day for breakfast, I tend to order the same food item and never switch it up. When it comes to breakfast and work days, it needs to be fast and easy and quiet. I don't want to wake up my entire household since they are all happily sleeping when I get up. Over the summer I started making egg whites on toast. So all this week I've been making it the night before and just popping it in the toaster oven while I get ready. I can tell this type of breakfast isn't going to last much longer! 

Well I'm off to try and get some ZZZZZZZ!

wow, I can't believe you're already back in school! Get some rest for sure! TGIF, right?! I am also a fan of lunch totes!! I get mine at Target. I've had the same one for a few years though... sounds like I might need to replace it?! (what I don't know won't kill me, right?!) Hope you survive the first week!

So do you put the egg in the fridge after you cook it? Until the next morning?

Curious because while my current commute is only about 18 minutes I will be moving in late September and it will be ... significantly longer. LOVE the new place but egads, the drive. Mornings will just be long ... I think I'll beat most of the actual traffic. On the way home, though/ That's going to be brutal.

But I like quick and fast and easy.

Oh, and pens. ;)

My lunch tote is a SW insulated one from Pottery Barn Kids. My sister got it for me as a birthday present. The little boys think it is funny when their teacher librarian has the same lunchbox as they do.

Hope you get a chance for a sleep in soon! I have a pen addiction too- the cuter the better
