Friday March 16th

I missed school on Wednesday – I went to the doctor after I got out of my appointment with Lisa on Tuesday. I had gout in my left big toe. I have never had gout, no has anyone in my family ever had gout. The PA didn’t believe that’s what it was and did x-rays and crap because it’s so unlikely someone with my demographics would have it, but I did. My toe hurt so bad I felt like crying. They gave me a shot and I’m on prednisone now. I like how prednisone usually stops my always runny nose (not this time), and gives me lots of energy. However, my sleep sucks when I take it. I can’t fall asleep and then I can’t stay asleep. John got me up last night an hour before it was time for me to get up. Ugh. I did fall back asleep, though. I curled my hair yesterday and today, and I wore my contact. The kids kept telling me yesterday that I looked nice, or younger, so whatever. They did comment on it, though. Many adults have as well. I did notice myself in the picture of Bethany, Jamie and me I looked terrible with my hair straight. I don’t need to wear it like that. I am going to have Delores cut more layers into it when I see her this week. 

I am all caught up in my online class. I honestly could have probably handled 2 classes, but it was probably better to start with only one. I am definitely going to take 4 this summer. I will take 2 in the fall, maybe 3, and then 2 or 3 in the spring and I will be DONE! I have no idea what I will do at that point. Apply for open jobs, of course. There may even be an opportunity at my current school by then. We do have 4 assistant principals- maybe one of them would want to move up to a head principal job. I honestly don’t know why anyone would want that job unless they just like the power. From what I can tell, you don’t make hardly any more money, but it’s your ass on the line if something goes down at your school. I observed in the office today. I wish I had kept my mouth shut. I have got to learn how to do that. They did ask me several times my opinion. I just have to stop telling the scenarios about other schools and stop telling the scenarios that make me the good guy. 

I have a date with the surgeon on Sunday. I was supposed to see him Wednesday, but I cancelled. I just didn’t feel like I could get it together despite being out of school all day. 

I am going to go get my toes done this weekend, and I bought some new makeup on Wednesday when I was out of school. I can’t get it to work – come out of the container, though. I am going to have to go back to Sephora to see if they can help me- I watched a YouTube video even, but nothing still will come out of my tube. Ugh. 

Obviously I am doing better mood-wise if I am planning to go get my toes done and I have time to think about makeup.
