Thanks ladies for the kind words. I know it ain't truly over till the red lady sings, but I'm gonna take a wild stab in the dark and say that I'm out of the game this time.
Of course, if I'm wrong (which is unlikely) I'll gladly eat my words and say that I was wrong.........and that, my friends, rarely happens here in this household, because I am ultimately right (and aren't we all?).
Anyway, I had to cantor today, so I spent my time in church from 9am to 3:45pm (three masses and a Vesper service). It was pretty difficult to get through today, because today is the Feast of Christ the King, so the readings were the 23rd Psalm ("The Lord is my Shepherd, there is nothing I shall want....") and one of the hymns was "On Eagle's Wings", a Catholic standard (used most often at funerals)-great, wonderful. It was oh so much fun to try to get through those pieces without having a breakdown in front of a whole congregation of people for 8 hours.
Plus, tonight I have to start my grading process-all 800 kids. FUCK!!! This blows. And you KNOW that these classroom teachers will be on my ass starting tomorrow. Heh-maybe I should let the progesterage out.....
After Vespers, Sean and I went to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which was really really a good movie-honestly, I think that it's the best so far. Unfortunately, we had to sit near not one, but two nasty popcorn munchers-one next to me and one behing me. I actually had to switch seats with Sean because the guy next to me was making me nauseated with his smacking and snarfing noises. Otherwise, it was a great show.
I'm really trying not to worry about what tomorrow will hold. That doesn't mean that I'm not upset, angry, and devestated, because I am. But I refuse to let this control me right now.
There will be plenty of time to fall apart later.
