Rushy rushy

Hey there. I haven't even been to look at my flist and I'm rushing now, so I promise to catch up soon... I feel like the bad friend! Still, it's been busy here. I got back from Palmerston North yesterday afternoon, stopping off at school to collect some marking I had to do, and got home to find Steve back from France, the children home and Steve cooking dinner! That was nice. We kind of settled, although both Asher (headache) and Steve (jet lag) went off to bed for the night by half past seven! SO I got my marking done, at least.

I'm very tired at the moment, but I can't seem to sleep right through until the alarm, which is irritating. I know I need more sleep. Maybe I need to make time to do some really tough physical activity, so I'm so tired I have to drop! But *shudder* that's not my kind of thing!!! Still, it might help. But *wails* when do I do that!?

We got an amazing card from the vet's in the mail today about Cocoa! A sympathy card, with a whole page of writing about what a dear little fellow Cocoa was. Isn't that wonderfully nice of them? I guess we were just so cut up about it... although maybe they try to do that for all the owners.

I learned a lot at the DRS conference, mostly about how to improve the spirituality and the knowledge in the school, and some good stuff about NCEA assessment, an area in which I have been sadly lacking. We didn't have it last time I taught in secondary schools! I know a lot more now, and today got hold of a password to access the teaching site on the web. So I'm starting to work like a professional now *snort* I got back to school and the girls were so pleased to see me, one Year 12 girl hugged me right away, and another two stood in front of me and grinned, and finally one said, 'can we hug you?' it was so funny, so we all three hugged! I think they'd clashed with the reliever. She is a bit of a tyrant, and good on her, but the girls tend to resent her authority.

I got an email today at work saying someone was so disappointed in me, because I had failed to send her the names of four girls who went up to her rest home on Mission Day. OMG disappointed! The worst call of all. I felt so bad! Moments like that, I think, should I just walk away, let some other poor sucker do the job! But I keep going. I love the girls there now.

I still want to write, so badly. I do some writing in my head lying in bed, and I did some up on the conference, because in a motel, there's no housework and no children!!! But it wasn't enough for me. I shall have to be patient, that's all. And on the journey north and back I listened to My Chemical Romance between writing scenes in my head, I still love that music even though it's a bit rude and very dark at times - fantastic musicianship, great lyrics, good harmonies, some wonderfully cutting and bitter tones... I do like it although Christy thinks it's probably not what a DRS should listen to *g*

So, this was all about me. Don't worry, I'm thinking about you all, and how to save the world and everything. I am. But now I just need to get to bed...

glad everyone is back home. you know you ought to get your iron levels checked again, if you didn't already. I know you mentioned it in a post not so long ago about having to make an appointment for the blood suckers. it's always too easy in a busy world to put ourselves at the bottom of the list, so you need to look after yourself!

Yeah, I guess so. It's just so time-consuming to have even more to do though, even just that. I'll ask them to fax me a form. That might speed things up a bit.

Thanks *g*

Get some rest if you can. I'm not sure what to do about the not sleeping bit. They do say exercise helps, but I don't think it's worth the extra time.

I hate being told someone's disappointed in me! I agree, about the worst thing they can say!

Thinking about you too as I rush off to work! It's a busy week here too!!

Steve took off again for Auckland this morning, so I managed to get the children to cancel soccer and clarinet this evening so all I have to do is mind the boys and supervise the school dance LOL! The dance is at the school where I work, and Christy is going to the dance as a member of a guest school (she goes to the sister school on the other side of town)! Her friends don't want me to see them there though!
