Thursday I'm being observed for the second of three times for my evaluation. It's going to be a chaotic week and Thursday alone I will be going from 7:30 A.M. until 8:00 P.M. I'm trying to do everything they want me to do but it's taking time away from actually teaching and students playing on their instruments. It's exhausting. And I'm being recorded so I can sit and go over it with one of the administrators. And Saturday is the Marching Band Festival.

I'm tired but can't really sleep. Stress does weird things to your body. And I'm still taking care of the places where the bites blistered. I could sleep for a week. I really need a day off to rest, to just catch up on sleep that I keep losing because of emergencies and stress, but I am just not the type of person to call in unless I have to. Part of it too is the endometriosis. The pain takes it toll and I just feel wiped out most of the time. I called the doctor but I haven't heard back so I will be calling again. I think what bothers me the most is that if they say I need surgery, I no longer care; I just want the pain to stop.

I am however, very proud of my baby brother. He graduated from his trade school yesterday; he is turning out as a journeyman steel worker. He kept trying to downplay it but I took pictures and video anyway. I'm not sure why he was trying to divert attention but I'm so proud of him; he's been through so much and he is graduating from the top class and has a level of artistry and quality in his work that others lack. The teachers were asking him to help other students with their projects or to make parts for them. He was also the only student in his class to pass his welding certification. I'm so proud!
