If you read my blog then you know last weekend I acted like the end of the world was coming and I needed to complete every task known to man. By the way, I felt very accomplished and pretty darn pleased with myself on Sunday night.
I knew it was going to be a hard week. I was missing most of our “Back to School” meeting on Monday to attend my cousin’s funeral. I also missed a whole afternoon of prep. I would have to be super organized in order to be ready for open house on Wednesday night at 5. Previous years I had spent days, maybe even weeks, during the summer working. Not this year, so I already felt behind. I also had a board meeting at the theatre on Tuesday night. So my time was lacking.
Now here is where the “glitch” in my week really occurred. Sunday night while I was sleeping, every time I rolled over I woke up spinning. I could hardly stand up on Monday. The world just kept spinning in circles. I was suffering from vertigo. I STUPIDLY drove myself to work Monday morning (causing me to get motion sickness and nausea.) After the funeral I went to the doctor. I had double ear infection and a sinus infection.
It is really hard to work while the world spins around you.
I have gotten through the week. I have to be honest though, it was by the seat of my pants. I haven’t established my classroom quite the way that I want it. I haven’t kept up with my boys’ first week of school like I wanted.
But it is over and Monday we start over. With any luck my feet (and head) will be a little more firmly planted. 🙂
