Almost Over

Aye yaye yaye.  Another Education Week almost complete -- 4 1/2 hours to go.  The 7 zits that popped up on Monday are now almost gone, or at least coverable with makeup.  My voice seems to be cutting in and out and my poor knees feel like jello.  I made it through the whole week without ever breaking into tears at night when I finally got home to my dear Watson's listening ears. Well I think I might have had some tears on Sunday before the week even started, but still, only once is an improvement.  I'm still amazed at how unkind some people are.
The biggest pain in the neck was the huge amount of people who lost their name badges and were ready to throw tomoatoes and bags and presidents of Universities at us for making them pay $4 to replace it.   We are going to revisit that policy for next year; it was out of control.

I worked 14 1/2 hour days, but they fed me lunch and dinner--oh, and paid me time and a half for every hour worked over 40 hours.  Thanks.

My dear Watson went to two classes during the week and learned about cooking with grains from our favorite, Chef Brad. He has been able to visit me a few times throughout the week and his visits were my favorite part of every day.  Just having him sit behind me made the time pass by much quicker.

I'm hoping I sleep well tonight and don't have to get up to go to the bathroom. I've been so anxious about the week that I just can't hold it and go back to sleep like I usually do.

My dinner will be arriving any minute now, so I'm signing out.


  1. I'm so glad for you that it's almost DONE!! I can't believe that people are mean to you!! That makes me sad:(. That'll be a nice fatty paycheck though:)


Thanks for visiting! Leave me a message...I love them.
