Confusion, Confusion

This is my progress on Hobo Clown for Colleen at Love Quilts. This one is really fun to stitch!

I had a rough day yesterday. I had a subbing assignment at a school for yesterday and today. When I got to the school, someone else had already signed in to sub for the teacher for which I was assigned to sub. This has happened to me before at this same school! The woman over the substitute program for that school was very late getting there; so I had to wait forever. I found out that the teacher had asked the other person to sub, but she could only do Thursday. The teacher entered it into the system the wrong way, and I ended up assigned for both days. But they could not tell the other sub she would have to leave! I really got upset, because I need to work, had gotten up at 6:30, and was ready to sub! When the substitute coordinator finally got there, she found out they had another class where the sub had failed to show up. So she offered me that job. Of course, I took it, but it was already 8:20 and I had to try to figure out what I was doing and get the class under control! They were not the best classes either! I really had a lot of problems with the class I had to take to lunch. But all day long, the kids were really getting on my nerves even though they weren't really being that bad. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. When I got home, I really felt fatigued! I went straight to bed and slept for 2 hours! I had told the substitute coordinator that I would sub in that other class on Friday, but when I got up from my nap, I didn't feel much better! I decided not to sub today and called and canceled the job; so they could get someone else to do it. It was a good thing I did, because this morning I got up with a bad cold again - sore throat, stopped up ears, runny nose, and chest congestion. I guess I felt so fatigued yesterday because I was getting this cold. I was afraid I was getting to where I couldn't handle substituting! And I really need to sub and I usually really enjoy it. I hope I get over this cold by Monday!
So - an update on my walking - walked 2 days. Then was too tired Thursday to walk and didn't feel like it today either. Boy! I really got off to a great start! But I did stick to my diet! Having a cold helps a lot! lol
Well, I'm going to try to finish up Hobo Clown tomorrow, if I feel like it. I'd like to do another spring pattern for myself. I also want to find something to do for my mom for Mother's Day and get started on it! Also, DD's birthday is May 22nd. She will be 18. I also want to do something for her. I have a lot of pieces to do in May. Plus I have to sub as much as I can to save up for the summer. I'm not real sure I want to teach summer school. I'm not sure I could handle a class full of students who don't want to be there! I still have anxiety attacks and can't handle any stress, although my life is almost nothing but stress! I feel so damaged and fragile since my son's death! The least little thing blows me away!!
Hope everyone has a happy day and that God blesses us all!
