I went to school for first time yesterday. I have never felt so self conscious in my life! I got lots of hugs and attention which was nice but sort of weird at the same time. I decided after about 10 minutes that there was NO WAY I was going to the kids' graduation next week. I know I will also receive lots of attention from parents. I want to see them because they've been supportive, but all of that hullabaloo will be bad because (1) I don't want to take attention from the kids and (2) I feel so self-conscious about my appearance that I would be quite miserable. So, I will go to school on Monday to see the kids, and that's the end of the school year for me!

I was quickly ushered to the back corner of the library so the kids wouldn't see me. If they did, it would be too much craziness. (They are 6th graders, after all aka prone to craziness ANYWAY) I met with my team about next week's 6th grade graduation ceremony. Then, I worked a bit in my room and caught up with many co-workers. THEN, I had dinner with one of my friends and her new baby. I didn't get home until 11:08pm!

And, wowza, was I tired this morning. I feel like I've been hit with a truck. I still feel pretty good but am continually amazed that people work while being treated for HD. I feel like I need to recover from one easy day that didn't even include teaching. Whew!
