I've got your friggin' post

I'm in a foul mood and I am about to take it out on you.. or really on this blog. And before I even say why I'm pissy, I should first say that I am embarrassed about airing it all out in such a public venue. Apparently, though, I'm not embarrassed enough to not post it.

So I think I'm sick. This may or may not be a direct result of the flu shot I got on Saturday.

I think Jack is sick. I can't tell, exactly, other than to say he is CONSTANTLY fussy/crying, won't take naps, is arching his back when being held, won't play or smile or do anything except cry. And I am helpless. I can't fix it. He has no other symptoms except that he won't sleep and is constantly crying.

I am buried in homework. I can't get caught up. And the district wants to give me more to do. They decide on Thursday whether or not next year they will give me more students and take away a conference period.

We don't have enough funds to make our magazine in litmag right now. Unless the kids come up with some significant patrons, the mag is sunk.

I feel really bad for Rich at the moment. He gets to hold the screaming kid right now. He, too, is feeling helpless.

I have to go and help now.

This is why I firmly state at any opportunity that all mommies are saints.

Ick. Crying baby for no reason. Yea, those are the moments I hold our girl close and just cry with her. No fun, no fun at all.

I don't think I could ever do your jobs...you know, teacher, mom, and wife.

Know that I'm sending good juju your way that something takes a turn for the better.

Love you.

I hope things got better for you guys.

Thinking of you, wishing I could come spell you for a while. Other people's crying babies are NEVER as loud as your own.

I was also very moved by your post about teaching. I'm praying for discernment and peace for you. If I ever get near Dallas, I want to come say hi. (Then I can give you a parenting break!)
