Today was a very long, rather difficult day. Very long. (And actually it should've been even longer, except that I accidentally overslept an hour and a half!) I woke up at 6:50, got ready for school, dashed off a couple of e-mails, ate breakfast, gathered my books and was off to school. The boys had a conference with Fr. Schmidberger this morning at 9, so there were only girls in Physical Science - reminded me uncannily of the ol' girls' school days! - and we couldn't do the lab that we've been trying to fit in since before Christmas. I worked on Metaphysics all throughout the following free hour. Then we had Theology and after that Latin. It wasn't a BAD morning - it just wasn't an easy one. Mentally wearing.
Jozef called right as I got out of Latin. I called him back ten minutes later and he said he'd call me back 30 minutes after that. So I went and ate lunch. Just as I finished with that, he called back and I talked to him for an hour. That wasn't the most stress-free conversation - so no mental break. I talked right up until the bell and then ran to History class... the notes were coming thick and fast but my mind was wandering, which made it doubly hard. But I managed. Last hour was Metaphysics. I had read ahead in the book, but it was still a struggle to keep up and try to assimilate information of that nature. A slight incident in that class - wherein Father got momentarily upset - didn't help and, for some reason (maybe because my nerves were already a little raw), it shattered whatever mental capabilities had been remaining. ;) My brain was toast by 4 o'clock.
After school, I started typing out History notes... then got a text message from Rose saying to come home soon because our package from the O'Farrells had arrived! I got home at 4:45 and we opened the package immediately. That lifted my spirits more than I thought they could be lifted at that point! :) Dinner helped as well, fortunately. And I was actually feeling like almost new by 6:15, when I left to carpool to Topeka for a ballroom dancing lesson (2nd week of 10).
The lesson went well and was actually somewhat encouraging (it is actually possible for me to learn to dance! ;)) - but by the end of the hour, I was VERY tired!! We stopped at Spangles on the way back for refreshment... and I got back home about 9:30 pm.
Just one of those days that leave no time for mental relaxation. The kind of day that proves you're only too human. ;) But God knows what each of us can take, and so the day wasn't entirely miserable. :P In fact, I complain far too much!! There were quite a number of little highlights throughout the day - people being friendly and courteous helps a ton and just makes the day go so much more smoothly!
Anyway, that's my vent for the evening! It's now nearly midnight and I must be on my 8th wind by now!! :) Actually, I'm sorta zombie-ish at the moment. So I'm going to bed. Thanks for braving another post of mine! God bless~
..............oh, by the way! Just a matter of statistics - this is my 150th post!!
