They're Coming To Take Me Away..Ho-Ho..Hee-Hee..Ha-Haaa

So, my day started out around 6:00 this morning. I got my butt out of bed when I should since today was picture day at work. I even fixed my hair instead of throwing it up in a pony tail like I usually do. Despite the fact that I got up "early" I still found myself running late. Pictures went okay. Only four out of the seven that showed up got individuals and the only boy in class wouldn't cooperate. I'm not sure how the group picture is going to turn out. I hate pictures of myself so I'm sure I won't be happy with how I look in it.

I've been feeling like a mouse in a maze lately. Where's the cheese at the end of it? Oh wait, I have yet to find my way out of it yet! I've been a victim of intense homework lately. Spring break can't come soon enough. Hurry UP next week! I know I'll be working my butt off at work but at least I'll be homework free. In the midst of that defiant attitude, I didn't do any homework tonight either. Instead I decided to delve into my second novel in the works. I wrote over 1,200 words, yay me, and finally moved the plot along a little. I felt like it has been stuck in a rut the past few weeks so tonight was a good step forward with it. I seriously need to make an outline for it!

As for feeling like a mouse in a maze, I just feel like I'm losing my mind lately! I have moments of intense happiness followed by moments of sadness. I run myself ragged all week and Saturday and Sunday just isn't enough time to recover from the five days of insanity. If I'm not at work dealing with the high school drama I'm home dealing with things that won't be mentioned. When I get home from work or school relaxing is just out of the question. I sit and wonder about what I have to get done. Homework, chores, and oh joy, the mowing and yard work is soon to begin. Don't get me wrong, I love spring time when everything starts to bloom.... excuse me while I sneeze... gotta love those allergies... but it sure beats the heck out of winter time. I'll take the sneezing and watery eyes along with the blooming trees over a cold blast of air any day. I can't wait for the second week of May when classes are over. Ah, summer, you're on the distant horizon! You're so close yet so far away!

I can't wait for the weather to stay warm instead of fluctuating. Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 40's again after several days of 70+ weather. I need to shake off these winter blues! It's amazing how the sun gives people so much energy. Call me crazy, but I'm one of the few who ENJOYS the time change coming up this weekend! Granted, we do lose an hour of sleep but that's a small sacrifice considering the fact that the sun will eventually start going down at dang near 10:00 every night! Hello, here's to MORE energy and MORE time outside! I love to be outside!

There's so much to look forward to coming up in the next few months. Maybe my drastic mood changes are part of it. While I do have some good things coming up, stress comes with the territory. It's nothing I can't handle....BRING IT ON!

Hey, it works now. lol. But as to your post, I'm not feeling sorry for you having to back to the 40s. I was feeling happy that we are in the 40s all week. Seventies are still in the distance unless we get a freak warm front.

After the winter we've had, I shouldn't be complaining about being in the 40's. I got spoiled the past week with the weather we've had. I'm sure we'll have a few more snow storms before it's all said and done too.

Don't worry about everything. Just do what you can, it will be there tomorrow to clean or mow. Enjoy your life daily, and don't wish your life away. School will be out soon enough. Life goes by fast. You don't think that way now. But 20 years from now you will look back and think what happened it seems just like yesterday I was in school. Now I have my coaching job and time has flown by.

Yeah, life already feels like it's flying. It seems like yesterday I was still in high school. Thanks for the comment. :-)
