February....

February....

Lots of stuff going on but nothing too outrageous at this point. I skipped work today (it was an inservice day) and had a dentist appt. OF course I have another cavity or two. I swear my mouth is falling apart. Anyway, it's back to work tomorrow with all new classes for the final 12 weeks of the school year. I am soooo not looking forward to these classes. Some of the kids already are coming to me with such reputations that it makes me ill. And my schedule is changing, which is such a big irritation for a person like me. Damnit, I hate change! But if I look at it as though this is something to be endured until summer break, I can make it.

The health has been on an upturn lately. I don't know why but I just feel better. I was sick for a while and kept coughing my head off but now it seems better so I'm happy. Let's hope it continues.

I had a major meltdown this morning over the state of my house. I am so sick of the girls not picking up after themselves! I've got to be stricter about this. I know that they are good girls but it just flies all over me how they treat the entire house as their dumping ground. I know for a fact that the reason Han never invites anyone over is because her bedroom is such a wreck. Jeff isn't much better but at least he can understand where I'm coming from. What's the matter with these people?

I'm reading a really good book right now called A Certain Slant of Light. I can't wait to review it on amazon. I'm still not sure what I'll say about it...it's such an odd little story but it's just so gripping.

That's it for now. Enjoy your day!

Random Thoughts

Random Thoughts...well, maybe. I just spent the day in planning/inservice hell. What is it with these days? While I enjoy the break from teaching, I just hate sitting there listening to most of the crap we have to go through. I didn't need to know how to make fold books...I teach technology and there is no way I'm going to have scissors near the computers! But I did manage to get some stuff done in my room this afternoon, so the day wasn't a total waste. I just feel like I spend so much of time not teaching...I'm getting lazy. I readily admit it. My whole life is getting lazy as a matter of fact. I try to avoid going places and doing things. It's all just such a hassle.

My throat is bothering me. I'm still not breathing right....I'm obsessed about it but still not going to the dr. If I catch myself not thinking about it, I realize I'm doing fine but then it kicks back in when the realization hits. What on earth is up with me? I'm taking my Zoloft but it's clearly not working lately. I don't know what I need.

Maybe it'll snow. That would be cool. We haven't had snow in a measureable amount in so long.

If I die, I'm definitely coming back and haunting people. I think I'd make a great poltergeist.

Jeff is soooo into taking care of himself these days. I feel so inferior about it. Part of me thinks I should be doing what he's doing---worrying about what I eat, exercising, etc. but then part of me thinks he's just being vain. Probably it's a combination of both but it does annoy me. And then I think I'm being foolish and petty, which is probably right.

I hate getting older but the alternative is worse. :)

Check back in later!
