So in fact I am not going to lose my job over the fact that I showed up five minutes after class was meant to start.
Also, the big boss does not think I am a crappy teacher who doesn't give a flip about her students and their time.
These are a big relief because I had spent some time working my way into an anxious frizzle with ridiculous ideas that do not bear repeating.
Anxiety over the job hiccup bled into all other areas of my life.
I began to channel my Presbyterian foremothers... seeing every minor slip as a major gaff and as proof of my utter decreptitude.
Went to talk to friend this morning. Felt sick. Took a nap while friend wrangled all of the children.
