I have still felt nauseous all day but I sucked it up and went back to work. As I said yesterday, I hate missing and would continue going to work until I was on my death bed. Pregnancy has left me so scatter-brained and I can't stand it. I am usually such a perfectionist so being disorganized really gets me frustrated. Needless to say I completely messed up my sub plans yesterday. Somehow I got it in my head that I was completely on top of things and had plans ready for yesterday because I am constantly in the "just in case anything were to happen" mode. However, last Friday I seemed to make plans for the entire week of Oct. 11th but not this week. Lovely. My sub called me in a flurry of nervousness ten minutes before the kids came into the room. Luckily she already knows the "outline" of any typical day as she has shadowed me twice to prepare for me leaving. I was able to have her print out the "shell" of my day and we quickly filled in the blanks together. Ummm can we say embarrassing?! I felt awful that my sub even had to worry. This is yet another reason why I hate missing - sub plans are actually almost more work just to miss a day. I have NEVER not had plans ready before. I think as delivery gets near I am doing the best I can but I have a lot of anxiety, worry, and other things on my mind other than school. I'm feeling better though because I learned my lesson and now have plans ready to go starting tomorrow until almost the end of October. Then, my sub should be into a routine and can do them herself while I am gone! My friends keep telling me once the baby is here I won't think twice about school. Haha I will believe it when I see it; I'm such a worrier and being out of control with my classroom definitely worries me! Just another learning experience that will hopefully make me a better person in the end - I can't control everything.
