I am on my second margarita. I need it, I promise.
I just had a horrible, horrible day. I can't go into the details because they are work related and "personal" related, so I simply can't talk about them. I know it is a cop out. This is a BLOG, right? I shouldn't write about something that I can't write about!
Sorry! Just this once I have to do the "I have problems but I can't tell you about them" thing.
The thing is, it doesn't matter WHY my day was horrible. You all have had horrible days and the shit that went down in my world today is probably that exact same type of shit that goes down when you have a bad day.
But it's finally 6:00 pm and I am done for the day. In fact, I am done for the next four days due to the holiday weekend. However, I just CAN'T RELAX. My shoulders are raised, my butt cheeks are clenched, and all I can think about are the one billion things that need to be done. But I can't do those things because I am simply too tired. I am also thinking about the people and situations that angered me today. Again, there is nothing to do, except let go of the anger and not worry so much. Very hard to do.
As a teacher, it is really weird transitioning from the summer months to the beginning of the school year. I am not complaining- I am very thankful to have the summers to simply RELAX. My problem is going from 0 (summer) to 60 (school year) in the matter of days. It's a HUGE transition. And I am definitely an all or nothing person. In the summer, I'm all about easy breezy, but during the school year, I just can't. turn. my. mind. off. I hate that so much!
I don't know what the point of this post was except that I wanted to get all of my feelings out. I try to share the good, the bad, and the ugly on here. Ooh, let's do that!
The GOOD about this week: I trained a new client!
The BAD about this week: The network on my work computer crashed and I couldn't get any of the materials I needed for my classes and I needed to rewrite lesson plans I already wrote for next week.
The UGLY about this week: My face has broken out so bad. I think it is the worst it has ever been. Proof that I am stressed!
Thanks for listening! Paul and I are headed out for our second DQ run of the week. First week of school, indeed....
Hang in there, Meg! I hope the weekend brings some much needed quiet, relaxation and fun.ReplyDelete
With a 4 day weekend, it will be hard to not get cheered up! :) Today is a new day!Delete
I hope you have the BEST long weekend to help make you feel better! I'm dreading going from 0 to 60 beginning on Tuesday. :( I went in to set up my office this week but I'm sure on Tuesday I will learn of a zillion things that I have yet to do...lol.ReplyDelete
That's super cool you trained a new client! You are such an inspiration!
You have an office? Or is that what people up your way call your classroom? Tell me more! 1st grade, right????Delete
Arghh I hope you're feeling a bit better by this morning. If not, you should use that pent up frustration to go for a new plank PR!ReplyDelete
Oh my word!!! I do feel better this morning, but I totally should have tried a plank PR yesterday around 6:05pm!!!!!Delete
I hope you are feeling better!!! You will get through this and we are here for you!!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Heather, I appreciate that!!!Delete
Oh no :( Hope things get better for you soon!ReplyDelete
If it's any consolation, I'm currently having the worst breakout I've ever had (on my forehead, where I don't think I've ever broken out before!) and I was just filmed for four hours to be in a documentary. Just my luck!
Isn't that how it always is?? Breakouts at the worst time!Delete
I hope you can relax some this weekend. The transition from summer to school is CRAZY. We got through the first 2 days, and were ready for vacation again. Luckily, it's a 4 day weekend. AHhhhh...Hang in thereReplyDelete
Thanks girl! It is definitely a huge adjustment. My body has not been tired but my MIND has been tired.Delete
I'm sorry that you had a shit day! If it makes you feel any better, I had a really shitty day too. So shitty, in fact, that I ran 10 miles just to shake it off. On a Thursday.ReplyDelete
It most def does NOT make me feel better that you had a shitty day! :( HOpefully both of our weekends will be great :)Delete
I'm sorry about your bad day! These things happen and they SUCK every time. I'm glad to hear you had a margarita AND ice cream--hopefully those helped a bit! Here's to a (hopefully) relaxing weekend :)ReplyDelete
Thank you my friend! The ice cream and alcohol definitely helped. :)Delete
Oh, I'm so sorry that you had such a horrible day!! I hope now that it is Friday evening things are looking (and feeling) much better. Enjoy your long weekend!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Kim! There's nothing like a long weekend to cheer ya up, right???Delete
I'm so sorry you had a shitty day at work. I can totally understand. My school only got a 3 day weekend, last night was open house then today was an Act 80 day to do our SLOs. I cried 4 times at work today. My new co-workers probably think I'm unstable.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a FANTASTIC weekend. Ice cream and alcohol are well deserved!
I can't imagine how stressed you are. Hang in there girl. Hope you get some ice cream and alcohol this weekend too :)Delete
I definitely understand this and can empathize. I know it'll get easier and you'll adjust, but it's so true that there's just NO TIME before you have to just adjust to beingON all the time. Teaching is like performing a play daily for 8 hours with no script. It's craziness. I hope whatever the extra stressor was today is taken care of when Tuesday rolls around.ReplyDelete
I know you totally get it. It's really hard being "on" at work and then come home and try to be "off". I have determined I can't turn myself off. (But I can turn myself on... BAAHAAHAHAHA!!!)Delete
I'm so sorry you had a crap day…was this the shit storm you referred to in my post? I can say that since this is your blog and I don't have to worry about it in the comments section, my shit storm was losing my big client, i.e., it was losing a full time job. I have about 4 months savings I can make stretch before I am broke. The career stress has just gotten to me…as a freelancer these last 6 years. I am just so sick of being worried about money and my job. Anyway, that is my shit storm, so if you feel like emailing me to vent, feel free! I hope things have gotten better by the time I posted this. I know there is not much I can say to make you feel better (I know because I get comments on my blog like, "everything happens for a reason." and wow, that just feels awesome (sarcasm). :) But Ive been working my balls off (hee) this week and not sitting around feeling sorry for myself. At least I can say I'm giving it everything I got!ReplyDelete
GO GET IT TONYA! Thanks for the insight as to what your major setback was. That really, really sucks and I hope all this hard work you are putting in this week is helping the situation. Part of this shit storm is the shit storm I referred to in my comments to your post. The other part is just brand new shit! Hahaha. The brand new shit is at least temporary but unfortunately the shit I was referring to on your blog is our new normal. :(Delete
Ugh, the first week back is ROUGH! Hoping this week is better...ReplyDelete
