Currently! (January Edition)

I'm linking up with Farely at Oh' Boy Fourth Grade for the January Currently! 

So as you can see, I could not for the life of me figure out how to get text onto my image and then to add it.  I was able to do everything I needed in word, but it saved it as a word document.  If someone could point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.  I'm new to this whole blogging world and I'm learning through trial and error.

Anyways....Here is what I had typed in

Listening- To a two year old throw a tantrum because he isn't getting his way.  (Terrible twos are in full swing at our house these days!  )

Loving- That my sister came and spent NYE with us and we are going shopping in a little while.

Thinking- Who thought of sending us back on a Thursday?  I mean, really, who does this?

Wanting- To get some more planning done before I go back on Thursday.  (Keep your fingers crossed for me!)

Needing- More hours in the day!

OLW- Patience both at home and at school.  If I can find this, maybe some of my stress will melt away.

There you have it my January Currently.  Head on over to Oh' Boy Fourth Grade and see what other bloggers are up to and link up while you are there.



  1. Ahh someone who can commiserate on going back this week, haha!
    I put my blank Currently pic into PrintShop and then add my text over it and export it as a jpeg. I think you can do this in PowerPoint, too?

    1. Thanks for the help. I will need to remember this for next month! :) Good luck tomorrow!

  2. Happy New Year! We're your newest followers!

    To do your "Currently" in Power Point, just copy and paste the image from Farley's page. Then, use text boxes to write your answers "on top of" the picture. Save the slide as a JPEG. Hope that helps!

    We go back TOMORROW!!! {As in in...too soon!!} Sorry to hear you're in the same boat!

    We're having a should stop by and enter!

    1. Thank you for the help. Will need to remember this for the next currently. :) Good luck tomorrow! I'm hoping that the two days this week in the classroom will be mellow because they will be so out of the routine that they will just be exhausted. Is that a bad thing to hope for? :)

      Thanks for following. I don't see you on my followers list though?

  3. We use publisher. Save Farleys image to your computer. Open publisher and drop the Currently in to fit the page. Add text boxes for your responses. I save it as a png and then post that in our blog! Thanks for your sweet comments are our blog! Glad we made you laugh! Just started following you too!

  4. I use Picasa - it's a free download from google and you can add text right onto pictures. They have lots of cool edits too. I highly recommend it. Your blog is adorable - love the owls. I'm a new follower! Feel free to stop by my blog!! Brie @ Breezy Special Ed
