That’s what it feels like. Get past one blow and brace for the next. Yesterday damn near killed me. The NHS Induction went well. I was proud to have been instrumental in pulling it all together but I was totally exhausted when I finally dragged myself in the door at 8:30 last night. It was a nice ceremony and we had around 200 show up but I went off and left dirty punch bowls, tablecloths, floral arrangements, and a host of other debris last night that I’ll have to deal with today. I was so tired I just piled everything on a couple of carts and wheeled it into my room. I dread cleanup. I have a ton of cake left. When we did the Junior NHS Induction, we weren’t prepared for so many guests and one sheet cake wasn’t enough. Toward the end, we were serving slices of cake in tiny little squares that would barely qualify as a spoonful. This time, I ordered two sheet cakes, we had around 200 guests again, and we barely consumed a third of a cake. Who knows? I can’t figure it out but I guess our staff is going to be eating cake today.
I got home last night, kicked off my shoes and my ankles and calves looked like balloons! Ackkk! What the Hell is that about???? I got to thinking about it and realized I barely sat down all day yesterday. Almost 14 hours of standing and running the halls in dress shoes. I went to bed at 10:30 but I was too jacked up to sleep. I was still tossing and turning and staring at the alarm clock at 12:30. Now, 5:00 a.m. seems awfully early.
Next hurdle, ESS after school today. An extra hour and a half working with kids who are failing math. I met with them for the first time last Wednesday and, I have to say, I really enjoyed working with them. They were well behaved and energetic and seemed eager to please. Hmmmm….maybe I should save them some cake.
I have to work Saturday school this weekend and then, next Friday is the killer banquet for ROTC. A full dinner for around 200. Seems like 200 is the magic number.
I need to get ready for work. Today is definitely a day for jeans and a comfy top. Bring it on!
