Why I took a three hour nap on Saturday

Sometimes, I have temporary lapses in sanity, and in those moments, I decide that it would be a good idea to volunteer myself for additional responsibilities at work, church, or around the neighborhood. During my bouts of insanity, I forget that I am the world's biggest perfectionist, especially when it comes to my job, and I convince myself that I will be able to handle it all with ease.

A few months ago, when my school asked me to teach the English portion of an evening SAT Prep class for five weeks in the spring, it honestly seemed like a good idea. Well, I could use the money! Well, it'll be winding down to the end of the year, so I'm sure I won't have as much going on...

So, I agreed.

Stupid Rachel.

Tuesday, I spent 15 hours at the school: 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Thursday, I spent 14 hours at the school: 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
I was working the entire time. I didn't even stop for lunch--or dinner.

I don't think this was a good idea.
Oh well!! Only four more weeks!


  1. oh boy ... i don't know how you do it. at least when i study from morning to night i stop to eat! i miss you ... and hope to see you in a few months!

  2. I'll be back! :) I'm leaving this tuesday morning.

  3. Amen! I just committed to teaching a professional development class. I understand the feeling...
    Did you know I am going back to the classroom? :)

  4. Indeed, you are insane. Stop to EAT you freak! I used to eat at my desk to kill two birds with one stone. It helps.

  5. I see a Brownie Binge in your future.

  6. you are still a busy bee as always. We hope you are well. Love andrea n gary!! xx

  7. Oh dear...It's okay to take care of yourself, you know. A lesson best learned earlier rather than later, but difficult, none the less (would nonetheless be one word?). So how many nights a week is this class? Please say only one. Your sister's baby is adorable.


I love hearing from you!! Thanks for the comment!
