I have recently started work at the local school, working with the Year 9’s (13 year olds)
and I am really enjoying this. I work all day Monday, half day Tuesday, couple of hours on Wednesday.
Last week, I also had my Avon boss send through a ton of work that needed to be done, including meeting with her on Thursday to get some preparation done for the Sales Event (where we showcase some of the upcoming products and congratulate our top sellers).
By Monday night my brain was frizzled. I was in bed by 7:30pm and asleep not long after, it was just such a tiring day (though not as tiring as working with the primary school!)
Tuesday I had a lot of paperwork and stuff to do and I was struggling to keep on top of things. By Wednesday, I knew I had a day in town, so I did it, but I got home late and upset my son because I wasn’t there to pick him up from school.
I read somewhere the some stress is good in your life, but I learnt last week that stress is not a good thing for me. If I hadn’t been on my antidepressants, I think I would have lost the plot totally and been a bawling mess by Tuesday. Instead, I knew I was getting wound up and that I would have to keep going.
My Valuable Lesson? Don’t take on too much, it just isn’t going to work for me. Even being on the medication I felt very on the edge – if I hadn’t recently changed, I think it would have been rather disastrous, but I feel more in control with these new tablets, I can see the changes that I wasn’t quite getting on the last ones.
As a result of my extremely busy week, I didn’t get much writing done – none until Friday and since then I have accomplished 2500 odd words, and figured out how to make Medusa change without her head being removed – still as gory though, hopefully! I love having some gore in the middle of a romance – mwhahahaha!
