Yesterday was a no good, very bad day.
I woke up late. Then, couldn't find my keys. Called Matt freaking out and forgot that we had made spares (he calmly, as usual, reminded me of this, since I *might* have done this before). Then I got to school early for a Model UN meeting and a bunch of the kids I really needed there WEREN'T there. We also found out Monday we were accidentally $1,600 in the hole for our trip to Yale TOMORROW. I had nightmares that angry parents would be in my room wanting to tar and feather me for our clerical error in payments.
My kids sort of drove me nuts yesterday, but it was probably not as bad as I thought...I was just in a bad mood.
Decided I NEEDED a Northern Lite Latte (Chocolate Raspberry) and couldn't get my car to start in the parking lot. Said some inappropriate words. Got car to start. Got Latte.
Read horoscope at Caribou, 'cuz they always print it out. Usually I don't look twice, because it NEVER says I have anything but a 4 or 5 star day. Blah blah blah.
Yesterday's horoscope? 2 star day. Something to the effects of, "It's not your day. Stay at the mast of the ship. Tonight: don't even think about missing it."
Well then. I guess that's the way it's gonna be. Not missing my Second Sole run last night, apparently!
Had a great run, 6.3 miles, with my buddies in the snow. Packing? Still haven't started. But, the sub lesson plans are in, we coughed up the money in time, I almost have all 3 emergency medical forms/liability forms per kid, I did 5 lecture/discussions today so I don't have much of a voice but felt like they actually learned--yahoo--and tomorrow morning at 5am I'll be hitting the very, very long road to New Haven, Connecticut with 19 students.
I'm going to pack. And then, Bible study at my place. And then, a 9pm run, because I know it will calm me down.
And I will even, hopefully, get to meet up with Cara from InTransit this weekend! So that rocks.
It'll all be worth it in the end....right? No, it will. I know it will. It's just a little crazy getting TO the bus. Once we're on it, it's all good. I'm not very excited about the prospect of arriving back at 2am Sunday night and then teaching all week.
BUT--their memories will always be with them, and I get to see that. That should suffice for sleep for a few days.
Wish me luck! :)
