No Surprises Here

Dr. Soran: They say time is the fire in which we burn. Right now, Captain, my time is running out. We leave so many things unfinished in our lives. [softly] I know you understand.

I basically worked for eleven hours straight yesterday trying to get my data straightened out. It’s not done but the end is in sight.

You Are 75% Burned Out
You are very burned out.
You need a huge break from your responsibilities, starting as soon as possible.
And you need this time to reevaluate what you really want out of your life.
Because you’re working hard and going no where… and that would burn anyone out!
I found this via Karen. I’ll tell you what: I can still burn the candle at both ends when I want, but I certainly don’t have as much wax as I used to.
In other news, I took a peek at my garden this morning. Now, it could be the rain we’ve finally gotten, or it could be the Troegs beer, but the garden has suddenly taken off. I’ve got several little baby tomatoes, I’ve got a bunch of actual beans (possibly enough to feed two of us, if not all three), and the cucumber plant is getting big. The peppers are showing signs of being ready to flower. Personally, I’m going with the beer, because it’s more impressive when you talk to the neighbors about it:
"I use Miracle-Gro on my vegetables. It’s a little pricey but just look at them!"
"Oh yeah? I use the backwash from my beer bottles. I got drunk AND now I have nice vegetables. I think I got the better deal."

  2. Hi,
    I found your blog from FOMA’s site. I’m also a sped teacher, but I teach up in Alaska. Are you guys still in school?? No wonder you’re burnt out! I hope things get a little easier for you!
