Cue all teachers sobbing into their pillows.
I have actually been doing OK. Probably because it is break, lol, so we shall see how that changes next week.
I was supposed to actually work on some lesson planning and stuff this break, but nahhhhhhhh.
I really just let myself rest and relax and it has been really good for me.
I know, I am being horribly neglectful to the blog. But apparently, according to my therapist, I am being horribly neglectful to myself. I just don’t have enough time for everything everybody expects me to do.
Typical to-do list, going directly from one thing to the next:
- Wake up and feed the toddler
- Teach a couple of classes via the satellite program I work for
- Commute to work
- Teach classes at school
- Work on tech during my lunch and conference
- Commute home
- Make dinner
- Feed toddler
- Clean kitchen/play with toddler
- Get her ready for bed
When I get up at 5 and she isn’t asleep until 8, I often don’t get 30 minutes to sit down and do nothing until 8:30.
And she wants to know why I don’t go out and do something for myself.
When? In that magical two hour break that only exists in my imagination? I didn’t realize I could transfer that to real time.
In the evening when the baby is asleep? Most places are closed then. Plus, I get up at 5 so I want to sleep. Or maybe take a quick shower if I am feeling fancy.
Trust me, I would love to just sit and do nothing. Take a bath. Zone out and watch a movie. Get a pedicure.
But this work schedule sucks. It is a vampire stealing everything.
