Sleepy Anxiety

8 Aug

I start at my new school one week from today. I’m terrified. The dreams should start any night now. I always have scary dreams about work at the end of big breaks (summer and winter). I wonder if that will ever go away…

I’m tired. All I want to do is eat and sleep. This is making it difficult to prepare lesson plans and set up my classroom. I’ll get it done, though. I always do.

This weekend we my husband almost finished our entryway. He wanted the record to show that I did not help AT ALL. I just paid for the paint.

I took this picture of the paint chips because we were buying the paint, but I already had picked out the colors from swatches we have had since right after Emily styled our house. She told us what would compliment the dark purple in the living room and we listened. I will tell you what color we went with once it is all done.

Saturday night, we went to my friend Michelle’s parents’ house for a BBQ. I had fun playing with her adorable son, Carter.

We went to church on Sunday morning and afterwards my husband made breakfast. Love that guy.

I feel kinda bad that my husband worked so hard this weekend on the entryway while I sat around and did nothing. But, not THAT bad.

Ok, back to worrying myself to sleep. I hope you had a great weekend!

    I think it's kind of funny that the teacher has those dreams at the beginning of the semester – I still do that as a student, but I never thought my teachers did too! I also had a weekend where I was amazed by (1) how much the husband got done and (2) how little I helped at all. Sometimes it happens like that. 🙂

    Spent the last week visiting my friend (also a teacher) before she started her school year next week. She said she's so nervous about it too, and just wants to get on with it already! Like Beth said, students have these dreams too, who knew (until now) that teachers do the same thing! Best wishes for a successful new school year!

    I still have nightmares about waiting tables, and I haven't done that in 6 years! I never have nightmares about my current job though. I think it might have something to do with "being a stage" so to speak. I know you'll do great this year as you always do! Good luck. Xoxo.
