Oh the horror

What a day... Things went great with the kids but everything else at work is a giant snarl. Even the mellowest person would be stressed.

On top of everything, I am in the process of getting my bathroom redone. Right now, the water is off and they are pounding on the ceiling while I fight a migraine and irritable bowels.

In the meantime, my stress at work just skyrocketed exponentially when after several days of school, the counseling office just changed our master schedule and gave me new courses to teach. The courses have never been offered, there's no curriculum and my rosters change every ten minutes. Basically, I was told at 2:00 pm about the change and I had to delete my gradebook, create new plans and copies for tomorrow. In the process of it all, I stopped to puke and then went to talk with my principal about FMLA. He was very understanding and said he would talk to the assistant principles who are adding to my stress. I told him to go ahead and explain to them about my health so hopefully I will get more support now.

Not my day and yet, you can't keep me down for long. I can barely stand from the headache and nausea (I have even had a prescription pain pill) but I'm still excited to work with the kids again tomorrow.

Today I am grateful to have great students that help make the B.S. worth it.

Nadja,

You are taking the best medicine "POSITIVE ATTITUDE" to deal with your stressful day.

I hope everything works out for you, now that you have disclosed your illness. If it do not shoot me an email.

I have not been blogging lately because of my MS pain and I had a terrible fall. I will talk about it when I get back to blogging. I am just now feeling up to visiting blogs again...I am also stopping in to say hello.

Blinders, thanks for dropping by. You're right. The positive attitude is propping me up.

I'm sorry to hear about your fall. I hope you feel better soon.

Robert, I couldn't agree more. Last year they drove me nuts but this year I am really enjoying the kiddos. They are very sweet for the most part.

Good job! No, great job. Keep looking up like you do and you will be ok. If all else fails tell your people that if they don't get off your back there may be an angry Georgia redneck stopping by for a chat! (kidding)

Hope you have a better day.
