Today finally ends.
It wasn't a "bad" day, per se. It was just one of those days when I didn't want to get out of bed, much less go out and face the world. And being a teacher, you have to be "on" all the time. You have to smile, socialize, be energetic and fun...all...day...long. I'm a major, major introvert. At the end of the week, I'm absolutely exhausted, emotionally, from it all. It takes an extensive amount of energy to force yourself to smile and act sunshiny all the time. I absolutely love my job, I adore my kids, and I couldn't imagine doing anything else. But it really whips my butt. I also want to clarify that I'm not being "fake." I don't know. It's hard for me to explain right now. I guess I'm just more comfortable being alone, and with the kind of job I have, that is not even a little bit possible. So...it's especially exhausting. I've been feeling depressed and blah lately, too, so when you couple that with being a tired introvert, it just has all caught up to me. But the day itself was fine. After work, I picked up Daughter from her after-school tutoring, and she and I got the last couple things we needed to wrap up our Christmas shopping. (All I needed was to get a few things for our furkids, and Daughter needed to get Husband something. She got him a couple new shirts.) So that's done! I am totally finished with my shopping. Yay! I just need to write out a few Christmas cards. Well, I'm falling asleep here, so I guess it's time for bed. G'night, y'all.
