I had no idea that today was going to be so difficult. While I have been self-talking the last few days, I was in no way prepared for this. I had a hard time falling asleep last night because I had a headache, which is unusual for me. This morning when I woke up at 6, there was no way I was going to function without more sleep. I called in for half a day off but managed to make it in by 10:30.
I can go for days, sometimes weeks, with nothing extremely pressing to tackle at work. Why today, when I am not quite wrapped tight, do I have 500 little things that need my immediate attention in addition to one extremely emotional teenager, two concerned parents, and a frantic administrator? I am truly not sure if I will make it through this day.
I have planned a lantern release at 7 PM tonight with my friends. I know I need to follow through and do it, but what I really want to do is sleep.
