School officially began today.

Somewhere in the midst of the 374 things I had to do today, school officially began. Yes, I’ve read several books and written several papers and even done a couple of group projects, but no school year is official until you have one of those days when you just feel like imploding. Maybe it was the fact my day started an hour and a half earlier than normal, or the fact that staff meeting went long and I had three other things to do during my then shortened lunch time, or maybe I should blame it on dinner, when I got my only half-hour break of the day, which gave me just enough time to crash. But whenever it was and whatever caused it, stress showed up at school today.

At this point, all I look forward to is my bed. I should spend some time studying tonight, but I’m not going to. I’m tired of this day, and can’t wait to put it to death in my nice, warm sheets. Of course we have no weekend to speak of because of Chorale, and I love traveling with Chorale, but it really couldn’t come at a worse weekend for me. The last three or four have been luxuriously free from anything, and of course the one weekend I need the time is the one I don’t have it.

Nothing spiritually deep or insightful tonight. Just a request that you keep me in you prayers. It’s going to be a very long week and a half or so, but Fall Break is coming. It is coming, it is coming, it is coming…..
