And today was... okay! Hooray!

Still here. Still irritatingly tired. Still on my way to bed. Still hearing from my young friend in my old school. We just talked on the phone for over an hour. She desperately wants a new job. It's so frustrating to hear how bad things are there and how much I just wanted to help but, like Martin Luther, just managed to annoy people. And so. Moving on. I'm never going back there.

A good day at my school. Powerpoint went well. I kept a candle burning most of the morning for the deceased father of one of my students - the funeral was today. Job applications for my job close on the seventh. I don't think I want to apply. Not right now. *shrug*

And I just found this great little site for slightly religious ecards (so some of you won't want to go there, actually most of you LOL, but they're nice cards *g*) - it's here http://www.dayspring.com/ecards/

Have a good day, evening, whatever you're up to now. I'm off to think about one Nick or the other... in bed *g*

NO time for writing *pout*

Working full-time again after a break is bound to be exhausting, so make sure you are getting lots of sleep and give yourself time to adjust.

How are your iron levels? Things like that are bound to make a huge difference when you are so busy. Make sure you are taking care of yourself.

Remember, you can't be everything to everyone and have to look out for yourself.

OMG bugger, I'd forgotten all about iron. I even forgot about the iron pills... duh. Thanks.

-Remember, you can't be everything to everyone and have to look out for yourself.

True. It's so hard though, everyone seems to have high expectations of me just now! Asher texted me while I was on my way home yesterday (and that means I'm less than five minutes away) to say, 'there's nothing to eat' Argh! I'll just have to get selfish. Yesterday I got my ethics class to just make notes. That was a nice break for me!

Hope you find some time for writing soon, and get some rest.

As for your old school...you've done what you can. Now all you can do is be there for your old friends.

Thanks. Yeah. Maybe Saturday afternoon!

You're right. I have indeed done what I could. I just can't bear what's happening but I'm not not NOT getting involved! And yeah, I'm just someone who listens and cares now. I guess that's nice, my poor young friend just needs people to bounce her thoughts and worries and irritations off. I can do that LOL!

I'm glad that the school side of things is going well, but sorry that you are feeling so tired and not finding time to write. elliper is right that you need to look after yourself, as well as everybody else...(do remember to take those iron pills!!!)

While you are working full time, it's reasonable to expect the children to help out more around home, they are old enough to make a significant contribution to the running of the house, they could shop, help with washing and ironing, wash dishes, even cook sometimes - mine used to help in all those ways when I worked, though they do very little now!!! - just an idea!!

Anyway, just look after yourself... And find some time to do the things you enjoy!

Iron pills, I'll have to go buy some, I guess.

And yeah, I need to get the children doing more. At the moment, Asher is adjusting to bringing his brother home and foraging for food after school!

Well, I'd like to... there just isn't time at the moment!
