I feel I should mention that I am writing this one late on Saturday night, since I have every intention of sleeping in since I am desperately tired. I suppose that is what happens when you are working two jobs. :)
This week has been kind of ridiculous and unproductive. I spent Monday trying to catch up at school after being out for two days. At least I came in my classroom and found a wonderful sub note. That is always a good thing to find. I have still been feeling really off. I took a three hour nap on Tuesday after school, and then went to bed for another 6 hours after. On Wednesday I came home, ate dinner, and went to bed at 5:30 in the evening. I didn't wake up until my alarm went off the next morning. Ditto for Thursday. I ended up going back to the doctor on Friday morning where the doctor yelled at me. I am to sleep as much as possible and to not overwork myself. :) Of course, I went to work Friday night.
I do promise to take better care of myself. My kids are moving in to the end of the school year and a lot of projects are coming up, which will make my life easier. Less grading! woot! But there are 8 weeks until the end of the year. I can rock that out.
Needless to say, reading fell by the wayside. I am still trudging through Atlas Shrugged. I had set it aside for a long time (to be honest, it was on the floor where it landed the last time I threw it), and I finally got around to picking it back up. I forgot some of the details...so I backtracked a bit and it is going slowly. I highly doubt I'll finish anything else by the end of the month, but I am sure going to try. We'll see what happens.

What are you all reading this week? How do you find time to read when you are feeling under the weather or under a lot of stress?
Yeah and I'm thinking that nothing in the world could induce me to be a teacher. Wow. I hope you get the rest you need and feel better soon!ReplyDelete
Hope you are feeling better soon. When I am feeling poorly I tend to hide away and watch DVD's rather than read. Tend to read less when stressed too.ReplyDelete
Have signed up for your Iliad Readalong.
I loved The Idiot! Hope you guys enjoy it!ReplyDelete
I'm impressed you haven't abandoned ATLAS SHRUGGED yet given how much you seem to dislike it.ReplyDelete
When I'm totally stressed, I try to read "fun" things. Just not a big dense I'm tired book. It'll always put me to sleep.
When I'm stressed, I force myself to set aside some time for reading. It's my instant zen :)ReplyDelete
