I cried on Monday because a close family friend shared her experience with me of waiting two years after she was married to start trying for babies. She knew our plans of trying about a year after being married and wanted to give me some advice (I guess?). I am too sensitive, as my friends and family know, and it kind of sent me into doubt-ville.
Tuesday, a crazy driver sent me over the edge and I behaved like a child, then was terrified he would hunt me down and murder me.
Wednesday, I was observed while showing a movie and grading papers. Mind you, the class in question had already taken their final, had grades entered, and had not begun the new semester. I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do with them as they knew nothing counted until Monday. Still, I definitely felt ashamed and angry at being observed that day.
Thursday, my husband and I were supposed to have a romantic dinner with wine. I drank some wine, but was so tense from all that my week had dealt me that I couldn't relax. I hurt his feelings and went to bed depressed.
Today, I am trying to turn it all around. I did some fun lessons with my classes, even though the new semester doesn't start until Monday and all my grades had to be in at 10:00am today. My husband is taking me out to dinner and I am going to nap beforehand so I'm not a cranky mess. I got home and noticed that the tree in front of our office window is starting to bloom.
With this pretty little preview of spring, I am looking ahead and leaving this terrible, horrible, no good, very bad* week behind.
What do you do when you have a bad day/week?
*I know I lead a charmed life when I say that this was a terrible week for me. I know that others have it worse and I am thankful this was as bad as it gets for me.
