I'm not quite sure what was going on with me today but DAAANG!! High-strung is an understatement. I woke up feeling like I hadn't slept at all but once I got up and going, I felt like I had an adrenaline rush.
I'm usually pretty laid-back but nope, not today. I set two classroom parents straight without much diplomacy. Hoping I won't have to pay for that later. I don't regret anything that was said but my tone could have been kinder. The co-worker who overheard the conversations assured me that all was fine. My sister laughed and said that what I feel like is a "roar" is usually just a "meow" but it seems worse to me because I've gotten used to just "squeaking like a mouse". Hmmmmppff. I hope she's right or else there may be some repercussions. I just don't understand why folks can't take of their child's transportation issues after school. Grrrrrr...
One of my classroom loves moved away, unexpectedly, over the weekend. I hate losing "my babies" before the end of the school year. My new student with special needs began today and all went GREAT! He is such a tenderheart and the other kids welcomed him with open arms. Yet another child has my heart in their hands. I was so relieved to tell his mom what a wonderful day he had. I can only imagine her relief. Parents have such a hard job!
By noon, the adrenaline rush ceased and I came crashing down with a migraine. 2nd Grrrrrr... of the day. Thankfully, I caught it at the start so was able to prevent it from becoming a full-blown misery.
I'm hoping the cause of the tumultuous day is still the hormonal system trying to regain a balance.
Grateful that the work day did go by quickly and the evening has been laid back.
1. How well all things went with the new student. So glad to be proven wrong :)
2. Spending the afternoon with my most favorite 8 year old.
3. That the new RX for migraines worked effectively with very few side effects.
4. My mom surprising me with a yummy home-cooked dinner.
5. Rhyder's sweet silliness and his precious giggles.
6. Calm evening and the opportunity for an earlier-than-usual bedtime.
