Tap, tap, tap.
Is this thing on?
Anybody out there?
Well. Just how do you come back from an unexpected blogging break?
My week that was bad turned horrid over the weekend and just kept getting worse.
On Friday my allergies kicked in. Then we tried to see "Breach" and 10 people from the ticket agent it sold out (which is probably a good thing since we were at the godawful Rave theater in the mall and it was a nuthouse).
I woke up Saturday unable to breathe and feeing like I was going to be sick. I spent Saturday on the couch, asleep for most of the day. Sunday brought more of the same, though I did force myself to sit up and write lesson plans and grade papers in small chunks of time.
I dragged my butt off to school Monday only to discover that I would be having my evaluation on Wednesday morning. With the lamest math lesson ever already planned.
Monday afternoon the kicker came about 2:30 when my AP walked in and told me that I needed to get ready for a sub for the next day - I had to help administer the standardized test the upper grades would be taking the next day.
Sure, no problem. I can spend at least an hour getting ready for a sub. Oh, and my grades are still due by 9 am Tuesday? And I have to do them at school since I don't have a PC at home that will take a 3.5" floppy? And I'm still getting evaluated at 9:00 Wednesday morning? No problem.
I ended up with one of the worst subs EVER, and my grades got done on time (it was literally all I was capable of doing Monday night - I feel asleep before 9), and my evaluation is over.
Knitting? Who has time? I did finally start to think about knitting a little bit yesterday, so I know that the worst of the stress is over. Let's see how fast I can crank out two birthday gifts and two baby shower gifts. Good thing babies are small.
My apologies to all in the KAL - I just couldn't do it on Saturday. I'll post our last update this week, so get those emails in to me if you're blogless or post a progress shot on your blog.
