This last treatment has really knocked me to my knees. For the most part, prior to this last treatment I have been able not to get sick. I have been very nauseous but not sick. Not so this last time. I spent the better part of two days on the floor of the bathroom. I was so ill that I called in sick on Monday and took a day off of work. I probably should have taken Tuesday as well but missing too many days is just not an option.
I have been having a lot of trouble sleeping lately and when I do sleep I seem to be having lots of random nightmares. It is hard to keep a positive outlook all of the time when my subconscious continually reminds me of my situation. I am going back on Ambian CR in the hopes that I can get some better sleep again. I worry about taking that drug too much because it can be habit forming but at this very moment i just want some decent sleep.
Work is lightening up a bit now. Today 66 of my 92 AP Government and Politics students took the Ap Exam. I have four more that will be taking the make-up exam on the 15th so over all I had a good number take it. This year, even though I was ill and the quality of my instruction suffered i do believe that many of my students did well on the exam. Quite a few have told me just today that the exam was a lot easier than the one's i gave them and that they felt fairly prepared with answering all of the questions. I am just glad that i am not going to be grading 92 chapter exams every six days anymore. That was really starting to wear me down.
If some of you haven't heard I got a small sort of promotion at work. I am the secondary site coordinator for summer school this year at Hermiston High. This position is like Principal so it is nice o be doing a little admin work. I like summer school a lot and being able to be the coordinator has allowed for me to do some things that I have always wanted to do on my own. I got to hire a staff, build a schedule, and create my on school handbook and curriculum.
Well I am going to try and get some sleep. I have to e at HHS at 6:30 am tomorrow morning and i do need some sleep.
