On Saturday my boss told me that I am doing too much extra work. I am doing an extended training in Adult Basic Education through a combination of meetings and webinars. I am presenting at an upcoming conference. I am serving as the learning team facilitator for the pre-occupational teaching squad. I am helping train in a new person to a job that I held several years ago. I am attempting to get several professional education websites up to snuff. I am piloting an experimental hybrid model of teaching a child development class. I am collecting data to prove that the other experimental thing we are doing in collaboration with the college is worth continuing. I would like to do some grant writing as well to help track the career goals of incoming students and link it with our current informational database...
And I have my regular teaching gig.
And I am a mom.
She thinks that I am getting sick too much because I am not taking time to let myself rest and recuperate. I think she is probably right.
I am not saying that spending an entire day doing nothing is a sustainable thing on a regular basis. It forced Spouse into an endless whirlwind of delivering children hither and yon across the globe. But I think every now and again, it is probably okay and even good.
Grateful Crap: having the leisure and having the Spouse to allow for days like today
