Usually I'm on my way to work by now... but I find myself lingering around in the mornings... not being able to face the stressors of the day.
We only have 7 more days of school and I'm excited! Tomorrow my students make glass ball ornaments and my team has their annual Secret Santa Exchange next week which we'll end with a before school breakfast at a local café. I can't wait to share all the gifts I got them. I had to order Christmas Cookies from my favorite Etsy Shop ACookieJar. I'll end the week with Pajama Party in my classroom and we'll have our annual Winter Luncheon. That's always a fun day.
Tonight I get to see my butterball JD... my six month old nephew from Pennsylvania. I'll have to post pics of him because he is the cutest, chubbiest baby and he loves his auntie! His parents are in town on business and my husband and I get to babysit.
Was up most of the night, I have the worst pelvic pain... who knew uterine fibroids could be so painful. Still holding out though... don't want another surgery. I've lost a total of 13 pounds but I'm putting the Atkins Diet back on hold until after school gets out next week. It's just too hard this time of year.
I've had more bad days than good lately, too much crying, not enough laughing, my poor husband doesn't know what to do with me... he's never seen me this emotional before. I'm just praying for better days. I refuse to believe that this is what teaching has transformed into... unrealistic demands, having to carry burden of those less competent, larger class sizes... because if it is... I won't teaching for much longer.
