D is for Delirium

Ok, so I'm not completely delirious by the dictionary definition of the term, but I have been going at work and coaching so hard that I don't feel mentally rested or stable.

Today, I am taking a personal day.

I need to take some time to catch up on sleep, to work on packing, to find a place to live, and to run basic errands.  It is hard to get all of the basic things done when I leave the house at 6:15am and don't return until 6:15pm.

We'll see how much I accomplish and if my mental state returns to a somewhat normal level.

    1. Truly a great invention. There are so many days as a teacher that a personal day is necessary to either regroup or to accomplish things that can't be accomplished due to school day hours.

  6. Personal days are sacred! If used properly, they actually increase your productivity in the long run.

    1. Personal Days are the best thing ever! I totally agree that they increase productivity... if only writing sub plans wasn't harder in some cases than just teaching your own class. ;-)
