Back to Work Blues

I know, I know, I know! As a teacher, I don't get any sympathy when I complain that I have to go back to work after having 10 days off for Spring Break.

The first part of my break was wrecked by my overwhelming sadness. Therapy just confirmed that I am depressed. The rain ruined most of the free outdoor activities I had planned for the kiddies. Then all the family stuff got crammed into the past 3 days, so I didn't feel worse about crying in bed for the first 3 days of break.


The minute we walked back into the house from our day trip to the Intrepid, this sense of dread and sadness washed back over me. I literally sat on hubby's lap and had myself a quick cry. I have so much stuff to do the minute I walk into work tomorrow, it's making me nauseas:
  • Proposal for assistance and support with my program
  • Get tickets and program printed for my open mic show (annual event that I award a scholarship for)
  • Report Card grades
  • Practice, practice, practice for the show
  • Prep for our next program trip
  • Figure out what the hell I'm going to teach for the next 6 weeks
  • sigh, sigh, sigh, sigh
Lord, I am grateful for having a job. I'm just so overwhelmed with it.

I completely understand the back-to-work blues. My students don't believe me when I tell them I'm more excited than they are about summer vacation. I only have 21 days to go and then I can spend more quality time with Ariana.
