That's how I'm feelin'.
Shoulda known as I tried to walk outside this morning at 5:25 and WIPED OUT on my concrete steps. Nalgene bottle went flying into the neighbor's yard.
Yeah, freezing rain.
Luckily, I wasn't hurt. But I was pretty pissed!
Got to the pool and had a sluggish 3000 yard swim. Did manage to do 2 X 100s in the middle at 1:35 and 1:38...just basically because I needed to prove to myself that despite feeling like a lead toaster (stealing from Wil again--it's just so freaking funny) I could actually move.
Got to school and totally did not get to grade my 9th graders tests yet. I make them do an essay because I think it's important to practice writing and it also requires higher order thinking skills....but they are a pain to grade. I usually have it for them the next day. Looking forward to this conversation:
Me: Um, sorry guys, I don't have your tests done yet.
Frosh: *gasps* WHAT??? But we took them 24 HOURS AGO!!! What could you have DONE in the past 24 HOURS???? Don't you live here in this room????
Me: *In my head...* Well, actually guys, I have done 3 workouts in the past 24 hours, made dinner, slept for 7 hours, tried to unwind and hang out with my husband for a little bit, fell on my concrete steps, made a CD of 12 songs from the Jazz Age for my US History classes, and did a load of laundry since it was starting to crawl all over my house.
*What I actually say* Sorry. I am really busy. I'm only going to get busier from here on out. You guys might have to wait more than one day.
Frosh: BUT---BUT---ugh. *looks of annoyance and frustration*
Oh well. They'll live.
Now I gotta drink some coffee and get back my mojo....gotta do an hour ride today after school and explain to my kiddies in about 8 minutes why they don't have their precious tests....:)
