Sick in the Head
Today is wonderful. It is 8:15am and I am sitting in my living room listening to the washing machine and Sesame Street. I'm watching Molly dance around the living room and I am happily drinking a lovely cup of coffee (cinnamon swirl with vanilla creme YUM!) and catching up a little on mindless blogging. In a second I'm going to being a little homework in my pjs and enjoy the crispness of this morning. It's a GLORIOUS day and I am NOT AT SCHOOL!!!
Molly and I need to get her ready for the wedding this afternoon and I'm sacrificing a "sick day" in order to stay home with her. Sick days are so controversial in the teaching world--is a "mental health day" ok for sick leave? I say yes--because if I am sick in the head so to speak, then I have no business being around children that aren't my own. I'm so tired of school and it's only October. Thanks for the support I've received from a few of you about my situation. I just continue to make it through each day and try to keep my chin up. I appreciate your prayers about everything. I'm so fortunate to be employed that sometimes I feel like a big baby complaining about my job, but this job is two jobs crammed into one busy day and it's overwhelming at times.
Well, off to start a paper and catch up on some schoolwork and some light housework. My mom might be dropping in later today with my grandmother--they are planning to go to Saturdays in Greenville to do a little specialty shoe shopping--my grandmother has extremely narrow feet and she can't find shoes at regular stores like most of us.
This afternoon I have to take Molly to get her hair done for the wedding this evening. It's going to be outside--I'll see if we can get some pictures. Tomorrow is volunteer appreciation at church--I'm hoping the boys get a lot done today so Lindsey and I don't eat up our Saturday getting things ready. She has some desserts to make (I vote for Paula!), but hopefully we won't have to be at church all day tomorrow.
