Poor Planning

What's happened is that I'm overcome with stress and anxiety because of the volume of schoolwork that's piled up.

Sometimes I feel okay about it, like, I'll say to myself, "Calm down! It's all going to be fine!"

And then, like two seconds later, I start to hyperventilate.

The bottom line is that I'll be performing for 140 kids tomorrow. I hope to heaven that I can be moderately prepared for this endeavor.

If it makes you feel any better, I am experiencing the same anxiety about getting this house finished. This is a big week for me as far as finalizing all of the finishes and placing orders and then lining everybody but up to install it. It's giving me nightmares. But, I'd much rather do this that deal with a bazillion teenagers. Good luck to both of us!

I don't know how else to respond to your twitterings... I too hated The Road. Couldn't get past about page 50. I didn't have to though, so I just stopped reading it.

Yes. The stress lately is unbearable. Haven't had the hives again, at least. Good luck today!

I hate stress. That's why I became a literacy partner. Now I just have guilt.

Still hyperventilating, fyi. Things are bleak in the grading department.
