It’s 10 pm on Thursday and I’m completely spent.
My Wednesdays and Thursdays are really long workdays (Wed = 8 am – 9.30 pm & Thu= 9 am – 8.30 pm).

I also need to start studying, there’s a deadline coming up next week, but somehow I can’t see the point in studying… I know why I need to, I just don’t want to.

Anyhow, I’m off to bed now… hope I’ll sleep well tonight: there’s a full moon shining bright. G’nite people!

Yeah, this ain't gonna work out any more...

I’m just not doing this diet thing – EVER AGAIN – because I’m such a commitment phobic when it comes to sticking with diets (or workouts). I’m just going to eat whatever and remind myself not to bitch about my weight anymore (hahahaha! yeah, that’ll happen!).

At the moment I’m not eating anything extremely unhealthy, I don’t have chocolate in my drawers at work and I only had a little candy during the weekend (because I bought most of it for the kids and couldn’t bring myself to eat it all).

Anyhow, I’ve gotten all my uni books and need to get my act together and start reading them (shoot me). I also need to get ahead on the short for James’ Anthology, I now have a whole new idea… we’ll see how it goes.

I’ve been having such strange dreams lately… all involving old students and people I only know online (and never met irl). Train rides where we really aren’t on trains (dream logic you know), being flat mates with random people and having glamorous parties in exotic locations (the dresses we wear look like something from a drag show).

How do you interpret dreams like this? I’m speechless (for once)!

The other night the odd dream might have been because of making about 30 open face cheese sandwiches; my hands smelled of cheese for hours, even though I washed them several times!

Work is becoming a routine now, I know where to be and what to do and how to handle things. Very comforting and even though it sucks to work 4 nights a week, I enjoy what I do (meeting people and eating cake).

The diet thing has gone out the window… PMS and the following unmentionable flood put every kilo back and I don’t do disappointment.
Now I just try to eat less, let’s see if I can reach my goal before I die of old age (no no, I’m not bitter!)…

Anyhow, I know there are things I wanted to blog about, but as I’m writing this on my phone, I can’t be bothered right now.

ImageI went to lunch today with my bff (and former colleague at school), I thought it would be nice to say hello to my former students and just catch up with how they are… first thing I hear is a SQUEEEE!!! and suddenly someone’s giving me a huge hug: I was completely love bombed by my students! I choke up even now, thinking about it.

For several days I have had this headache , it comes and goes and nothing really works. But, having this much love thrown at me (that and a greasy hamburger meal for lunch) makes me feel a lot better. In a few hours I’m taking another painkiller, that should get me through the evening (last and only group today is between 7 pm – 9.30 pm).

It’s such a blessing to get to work with kids (ages range from 6 to 19) and be a part of their lives and since I meet them after school, at activities they’ve chosen themselves, they’re all very happy to be here and take part in what we do. I guess I’m quite lucky that way, I’m not likely to meet a kid who doesn’t want to be here and who I have to keep interested and content (which too often was the case when I worked at school, you teachers know how it is…). When I do meet a kid that’s less than inclined to participate all I say is: “Alright, what DO you want to do?” or “Alright, do what you want, but not too loud.” – I really really like this part of my job.

Anyhow, tomorrow I have to get my bum down to Gothenburg because my new course at Uni starts (gah! super boring but very much needed if I want my teacher’s degree). Luckily hubby has a thing there tomorrow too and we can go in the car, this means I don’t have to get up at soddin’-o-clock (just gah-o-clock) and will have time for makeup and whatnot. AND I will be able to have breakfast (I’m not keen on eating in the morning, it’s too bloody early!).

Well, time to get some things done… like get marshmallows for tonight’s group and such.

It’s perfectly clear that Autumn is here and that school has started, the kids have been taking turns in being ill the last couple of days. Today it’s my son and my youngest daughter who both have a fever and need to stay home for at least a day.
It was my turn to take a day off from work and care for them, which I don’t mind since my new job isn’t as unforgiving about this as my last one was… if they need to stay at home tomorrow my husband will deal with it (it’s nice when taking turns works).

I got my hair sorted the other day, just a cut because I can live with having 10 cm or more of my natural colour showing (I really didn’t feel like sitting there for over two hours on a Saturday) and it’s not such a big difference in colour anyway.

Anyhow, I need to keep a close eye on Pumpkin, she keeps turning the Xbox off when my son’s playing Animalkinect. Extremely annoying and very difficult… she’s only 2 years old and just laughs when I tell her off (argh!).
