Male company will be a pleasant relief in this hothouse of female emotions.

I am about 15 minutes shy of a meltdown. Nothing's too wrong, it's just been a seriously stressful couple of days, and last night- well sleep wasn't on the agenda aparently. I didn't even make it to bed until 10:50, which is 50 minutes past my bedtime. I tossed and turned with an upset tummy until just shy of midnight, when I sat on the bathroom floor digging through the "medicine cabinet" for my tummy medicine. I took it and was asleep within 10 minutes. So when I finally got up at 6, it wasn't near enough sleep. Apparently I also kept Daisy up, because she's snoring already, and it's only 5:42.

The yearbooks went home today, and the day went much smoother than last year. No angry hatemail from parents (though one is a little mad at me), and things seem to be okay. I'd definitely call this year a success.

Grades are due tomorrow, and I'm almost done, but I've still got to get some stuff graded and entered into the computer. And I need to finish the end of the year dvd that I've decided to give to the kids (because I'm crazy), and also get something ready for Thursday's end of the year party. Oh, and figure out what the kids are doing for the next few days of school. Oh, and eat dinner. I should probably figure out what I'm going to eat for dinner.

Just be glad you don't live in my apartment. Daisy's looking a little scared right now.

Things that make my world go round:
- I love The Man From Snowy River. I want to be Jessica. I would marry Jim if I could. Actually, I wish I could. Mmmm. The music, the accents, the cinematography, the horses. Everything about it. Sigh. Swoon.
- A new radio station, 93.3. It. is. awesome. It's called quality rock, and that's exactly what it is. I've even begun listening to the radio in the car. They play Eric Hutchinson and Better Than Ezra. They. are. wonderful.
- I really really want to see the movie The Hangover. The commercials alone are cracking me up!!

Update: It may be The Man From Snowy River that pushes me over to the meltdown side after all...the romance...the swooning...the realization that I have to go grade papers and not go ride through the mountainous countryside on a horse with Jim...
