Lori--I'm so sorry that you had to make so hard a decision on Saturday. I'll definitely be keeping you and your family in my prayers. It may be hard to see now, but sometimes it's the hardest decisions we have to make that end up being the best decisions for us. *big hug* Good luck, sista. Don't worry right now about how you're eating. Just supply your body with the energy it's going to require for the next little while, and when things are calmer, then you can get back on track (if you were ever off track).
Misty--oh man, I used to wake up with headaches a lot last semester. I'm afraid they'll come back for this semester, too, because of my hectic schedule that's coming up. I used to attribute it to stress, but I bet there's also some sleep deprivation tossed in there. I wish I could offer you advice on what to do to prevent them, but my best answer would be to sleep more and/or to get less stressed out. Ha...but those are easier said than done, aren't they? What used to help me out a lot was taking a warm shower and just standing directly under the water until my headache subsided.
Well, ladies, it's the final nine days before school starts back up for me, and what a horrendous nine days it's gonna be, haha. I've got something to do every single day, and I have no idea if I'm going to be able to even finish Confessio Amantis
or not. Ugh. I'd really like to finish this sucker so I could, you know, put all my best energy forward on planning for my classes. What was I thinking, teaching two classes this semester?? I have a feeling I'm going to be saying a lot of that this semester.
But it's Monday, so there's a very good chance that if I just wake up a little more and eat some breakfast, I'll be feeling much better and much more optimistic about this week. Haha--we'll see, won't we?
Nah, I'm sure everything will be fine. Maybe if I break this book up into segments of 50 pages and just spread it out over the course of the 9 pages, I'll be able to finish it before the first day. God, I hope that would work.
Have a good Monday (or Moonday, hehe), ladies!
