Today was a craptastic day. I should have known it was going to be all fail, all the time, when I couldn't fall asleep last night. I was up until 1:00 AM. Never a good idea on a school night! The only saving grace was that I caught NatGeo's showing of the documentary, Restrepo. It was uh-mazing. Heavy, but so good.
Anyway, today was a pile of suck. I forgot to turn the thermostat to "auto" when I left yesterday so my classroom was freezing when I got to work. I was useless until I thawed--I sat there and lost a half an hour! I wore my sweater backwards to school and didn't notice until lunch. Even though I was teaching like crazy all day and I was ten shades of fabulous, I got observed (surprise!) in my last class--after the fabulous was over--and the kids decided to be a bunch of buttheads. I hate that they couldn't see that I was nervous and just throw me a bone. Or maybe they could just not act out in WORSE ways than normal. OR MAYBE THEY COULD JUST NOT ACT LIKE PRESCHOOLERS. I just want people to know I do a good job, and it felt like I got caught on a major "off" moment.
After school I had to grocery and cat-grocery shop, so I just about hit the wall. I had planned to swim tonight... There's just no way. Time to call this one and just wait for it to be over.
