I Double Damn You

Why is today only Wednesday? And why is this the never-ending week? I honestly thought last night as I fell asleep, "thank goodness tomorrow is Friday!". Of course, it wasn't. It was Wednesday. It was just my demented brain trying to trick me into believing a wonderful fairy tale. Because my brain knows that when you're halfway through the middlest day of the week, it's a tough place to be. It's not like I have nothing to get done- in fact, I should probably be more concerned than I am about how much stuff I have left to finish up before the end of the year. I just can't seem to wrap my head around the fact that the school year is finito. A random sampling of my thoughts today:
  • Wow, I should really get these new books covered so I can put them out. The kids love new books almost as much as I do, it's so great. Then they can check them out... oh. Right. I stopped checking books out on Monday. Because school is over.
  • Ow! Why am I walking around with a staple remover in my pocket? That was dumb. Oooh yeah, I have to take down that bulletin board. Ehh, I'll have the kids do it Monday. No, stupid, the kids are gone on Monday! Do it now, lazy ass!
  • Hmm, I never called to make that appointment to get my haircut. I promised myself no more impromptu cuts! Must make that today. When can I do it? Thursday... no. Friday... no. Ok, next week then. Thursday? Perfect! Oh. Except why would I drive all the way up here when I won't be in school any longer?
  • Thank goodness all of my classes are done and I'm going on a field trip tomorrow... oh no! I have a class tomorrow morning! What the heck am I going to do with them? Maybe we can just sit outside for the very last class and enjoy the sunshine... at 7:55 a.m.
  • It's going to be so nice to have a few days off when school ends. I can just relax and res- wait, I have to start work at the gym on Wednesday? Well that blows.
  • I'm kind of glad there are no big events or holidays coming up soon, I'm so tired. Damn. Except Father's Day. Must get gift. And card. Gift and card! Plenty of time. Except... too late to order it cheaply online. Double damn! I suck.
As you can see, it's a painful cycle of procrastination and self-consternation. I do lecture myself frequently about doing things in a timely manner, but mostly I just end up doing crazy things at work and not having time for any mundane tasks like dusting the library computers, which totally needs to be done because I came in this morning and saw "SCHOOL SUX" written in the dust of one of the monitors.

Maybe once I start getting more than five hours of sleep a night things will return to normal? Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Thank god tomorrow really IS Friday - except it's raining, which also equals chaos!

I'm sure your life will return to normal soon. Of course, if your life is anything like mine, "normal" is a relative term. ;)

At least you're on the home stretch (of the week and the school year!) Hang in there.

Oh, dear. Sleep is important. If I don't get those 3 hours a night, well, I can barely function.

Change that to 8 hours and you have a better idea of how old I am and how much my life has changed in fifteen years.

I'm already sort of "off" from school and seem to still not have any free time to get stuff done.

I'm going to blame it on the heat.
Until it cools off.
Then I'll blame it on the media for muddling my brain in the first place.
