Must Sleep

First day is over and I am wiped out in a big, big way. The worst part? I haven't actually had students yet. Sigh. Thank heavens this is a 2 day kid week. I couldn't take much more.

Today was fairly productive. Had a great lunch with my IRL BFF Deb and crossed off all the things on my to-do list. But believe me...there will be a new list tomorrow.

Open House was 6:30-7:30 which got me home at 8:45. This is an hour and 45 minutes later than Little Miss normally goes to bed. Let's just go out on a limb here and say she will be a might cranky when I wake up her at 6:15 in the morning.

It is now 10:13. An hour past by bedtime and yet I JUST finished suppper and a big ol' glass of wine. I didn't sleep well last night but I am feeling so tired that I think I will tonight. Open House is always the biggest worry of the new school year. So glad that's over and hopefully I will be able to sleep well.

I had a bit of a hangnail on my middle finger. When I was getting pajamas on the kids tonight it got caught and ripped down to the sensitive under skin thingie. And bled. My finger bled lots and lots under my fingernail. I cried. I was tired and my finger hurt. :( So what with the wine and the bandaged fingernail, please excuse any spelling or punctuation mistakes. Thank you.

I have 2 chapters left in Twilight. I REALLY wanted to finish last night, but had to quit. I am not even going to start reading it tonight because I just need to sleep. Now.

Pin It!

Ouch ... I've done that before to my fingernail. It really, really hurts!!

Hopefully you'll start feeling a bit better as you get into routine.

*HUGS* and get a good nights sleep!

I'm sorry about your finger. Ouch. It sounds like you needed to release your feelings too. A good cry can do wonders...and so can a good night's sleep. I hope you are well rested tomorrow morning. :o) Good luck with your first real day tomorrow!

Cry it out, girlfriend! You know I would. I didn't cry last night. Shocking, I know. But remember that discussion of nervous poop we had? Yeah. Good times.
You're probably already at school. Time for me to get out the door!

Hopefully the excitement of the kids in a new school year will give you the charge you need.

I hope today was better than yesterday!

I hope you got boucoups (how on earth do you spell it??? I know how to say it but I don't think it's spelled right) boocoos of sleep!

Good luck with getting everything done - I can't imagine how crazy the first few weeks before school are.

I hope you had some excellent rest...and a wonderful first day today with compliant students. Can't wait to hear about it!

Owww....I feel for you with the hangnail....I had one this week too. I managed not to rip mine, but it hurt bad enough so I can't imagine how yours felt.

Hope you got the sleep you needed!

I feel your pain....this was me last week at the return of the students. Luckily....our principal decided to postpone our open house till Monday. I am already dreading it.

I know what you're going through. We report back to work on the 25th, and have our first kids the day after Labor Day. The good news is that it's just like riding a bicycle--just keep getting back on until you've got the hang of it!

I hope you have a restful weekend! I feel your pain....
