Last night Yoga Molly took me out for dinner and drinks to celebrate my birthday. We went to Bonfire and ate pizza and drank Mojitos. It was fantastic--great conversation, great company, great food---a terrific way to close out my birthday week. I'm so glad that I met Molly and that we've become friends; she is absolutely fantastic.
Today I worked for two hours and then, theoretically, had the rest of the day to work. My body had other plans, though. I got home from school at around 10am, and then proceeded to lounge in the great red chair of sleep until, well, pretty much right now. I took a nap, ate some lunch, ate some dinner, graded a few grammar packets, but on the whole this day has been one of total mental release. I didn't realize how exhausted I was this week. Every week at this time, I guess. It's probably why I'm getting so freakishly emotional on Thursday nights and into Friday mornings. Or, maybe it's just that I'm a freakishly emotional person. Whichever.
I have to take 8 math quizzes this weekend to make up for celebrating my birthday in place of doing math all week. I have to do that so that I can take the chapter 10 test on Monday morning and go to yoga on Monday night. At least there's a nice reward at the end of it. I also have to study for bio, clean the house, and grade summer school work. What's most important, though, is that I utilize tonight to the max that I can. I always feel like I throw away Friday nights and end up stressing on Sunday nights. Hopefully I can do a lot of work tonight and then not be so crazy on Sunday.
