|* a question|
September 25, 2008
Oh I have a million things to do, a unit plan and five lessons to go with it which are supposed to encompass an over-lying theme using 1 poem, one short-story, 2 excerpts from the canon and a video clip. Uh-huh...I've got a few ideas, but I am stressed right now.
I know it's because of my period and I know it's because of my daughter being here, but I feel like I'm on the edge of a full-bore linear blowout. I haven't felt that way in such a loooong time. Connor doesn't know to play quiet. He is into everything seemingly all at the same damn time. I love the kid, but my house is trashed.
When I get my period, this is what happens:
1) everything is out of my control-I have 50 kajillion things to do, even if it's just three or four AND never enough time to do them
2)My house is a wreck-a pencil could be on the coffee table and I feel the need to move all the furniture and clean, take down the curtains and wash them, clean out the nail holes in the wall or some other such nonsense.
3) I am a slob, I never have anything to wear, even if the day before that blouse was my favorite, or whatever. My hair never looks just right and other dumb stuff like that.
My question is, WHY do I get this way?
