Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage . . . They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.

What a Wacky Week

I've been in a funky mood this week. I'm fed up with the ignorant people around me and I have no patience for them 'cause I've also been fighting a cold. Yeah, I was only back with my kiddos for two days before I felt my throat tightening up. Anywho, I was in a meeting yesterday and it was driving me crazy because people were asking some ridiculous questions. I was already annoyed that I had meetings scheduled every day this week except Friday, but I'll probably have to work late Friday because we start testing Monday and then have Family Night Tuesday night. But that meeting was rough. I kept remembering an old saying my previous director would tell me: "Common Sense ain't common." Ain't that the truth!

I'm ready for my stint at this job to be over. There are so many demands and they all happen at the same time. This week alone we had a major project to hand out, report cards due, a family night to plan and training for the national exam we administer next week. Friday we give out the report cards and the kids get out at 1 but we have to stay and work. Monday we start testing and I already mentioned Tuesday is a late night.

I almost feel bad 'cause I've basically checked out already. I don't talk much in meetings and I'm only doing what I need to do when I need to do it. I feel bad because I feel like I've left my friend Melissa out to dry. I'm usually the one always staying and working with her, helping her out. But this week, I don't really care. How horrible is that! But she does take too much on. She doesn't know how to say no and I can't live with myself if I left her to do everything alone. But this week I've been in my own little world. I think because I'm ready for a change. It probably doesn't help that I received my new passport in the mail. So yeah, I'm impatient for change.

What's funny is I'm not a big fan of change. But I know it's necessary. And this year, I NEED a change.

And I still have four months left! Aaahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

I suspect you do more than you really have in the first place. Don't feel bad about checking out.
