Warning: Venting ahead.

This week has been rough, and you know what? I am here to vent. (Sorry, guys)

Since Monday Zeke (my dog) has had flu-like symptoms and yesterday it came to a head. Around lunch time he puked NINE times (5 in the house) and I was pretty much freaking out. None of us were supposed to be home all afternoon and I could not put him in the kennel or leave him out. So, I put him in the car to head over to my parents house so I could leave him in their yard. Take a wild guess what happened....

If you said "puked in your car?" you would be RIGHT. It was awful. I am one of those people that if someone else is puking, I am too .... so, I'm driving down 2-35, gagging. I'm sure that was a sight to see.

Then today, I had a clinical to get re-certified to pass meds at my part time job. It was the. most. overwhelming. thing. ever. Seriously, I had no idea it would be like a clinical, they did not give us a chance to prepare and basically through us under the bus in attempt to catch people off guard, teach us and avoid med errors. As an educator, it was ALL WRONG. I survived, but I am pretty sure my blood pressure is through the roof right now.

On top of everything else, my sister and I got into one of those massive, screaming fights that happen every so often. Luckily, everything is fine now, but I just hate fighting with people. I cannot stand it and basically want any and all issues resolved immediately. I'm terrible at letting other people cool down and I just want to talk NOW.

So, basically, I am so ready for the weekend. It cannot come fast enough for me. Work for grad school has been light and I am looking forward to time with friends watching the Iowa/ISU game, reading and just relaxing in general.

Tell me something good about your week! Hopefully it's been better than mine!

Oh my gosh, what a day! I hope you had a glass of wine last night and curled up with a book to relax!

I'm really pumped for the Baltimore Comic Con this weekend and for Ben & Mike to sell their book!

Oh my goodness, you have had a WEEK. Yikes. You poor thing. :( I hope that this weekend is relaxing, calm, and restorative.

Something good... Hmm... I am struggling (this has been a tough week for me, too). My cough meds have codeine in them so maybe I will actually sleep well tonight!

Ugh! That does NOT sound like a good week. I suppose compared to yours mine was good, haha- but my new kids are... interesting? Let's leave it at that for now, and maybe at this time next week I'll be able to say for sure just how bad things are going to be. I did just spend the last hour google searching classroom management strategies. Yes, this is year 7, but maybe I'll find something brilliant haha

Ug. Sorry about your dog. That sucks. Puke makes me sick. My week was good, except the 4 day week was busy, since we essentially had to do 5 days work in 4 days. I ended up coming in early/staying late a lot. It sucks when a three day weekend doesn't feel like a break! I hope you are having a better weekend!
