Ok, I just wrote this whole post last night about being tired and so on. So, last night I go to bed at 9:30. I was so exhausted, I feel right asleep. 6:30 came way to quick. I hit the snooze then struggled to get out of bed. At 7am I was still in the bathroom getting ready. My body is just done from the past 2 weeks at work. At least 3 teachers a day have been out and I have had to work harder because of it. Tues. we had 5 teachers out. I'm not quite sure how we managed it but we did. So, anyway, I'm getting ready and daydreaming about coming back home to bed, and my phone rings. Remember last night when I said the wind was freaking me out? Well, the school lost power and they ( as in "they" I mean "Janice") decided to close the school. I got my call from Adrienne. We have a snow list. When school is closed everyone has to call someone. So I called my two people and put my pjs right back on. I turned my phone to silent and I couldn't believe my luck! I crawled back into bed and thought of how I would spend my day off. Sleeping would be a majority of it. About an hour later I noticed my phone was blinking. That means I either have a missed call, text, or e-mail. Against my better judgment I checked it only to see I had 4 missed called and a ton of texts. Sure enough, 20 minutes after they called me, the electricity came back on and they were scrambling to get all the teachers back. A few friends had texted me to tell me how mad they were. So at 8:10 am I had to crawl back out of bed, get ready and go to work.

Do you know whats it's like to go to work after you thought you didn't have to go? That is a crap feeling. I was not in a good mood today. It's been a long time since I have felt this physically and mentally exhausted. However, there is a silver lining. Tomorrow I only have 1/2 a day. Thank goodness. When I used to fly and we were bordering on 17 hour days I would repeat "This day will eventually end, it will eventually end..." It always made me feel better. I thought that today and I'm already thinking about it for tomorrow. Tomorrow John and I leave for a night at a hotel/casino about 2 hours away. It's supposedly really nice so I'm excited about that. We need to get away. I'm a little ready for him to fly again. It's been a while since we have been together this much and I'm wondering if I'm agitated because I don't have any friends or family here or if it's the same old thing day in and day out. Not sure... Maybe it's the winter that's freaking me out. It sucks. Well, I'm done ranting again. Plus, the Office will be on in 7 minutes :) Good night!

Girl, what are you going to do? I know what you mean about the winter, it is too cold up north. Maybe John will get a job where yall can move down south. Things will get better eventually. They always do. I love you and I hope to see you soon.
