a mixed bag for work

It's nice to be wanted. I stopped in at the primary school today to pick up books and schedule and was greeting quite warmly. :)

Sadly, it looks like management isn't quite following through though. I only said okay to the split schedule (part-time primary school, part-time branch) because I was told I'd have only two or three classes at the branch. Ha. No classes have been removed, so I've got six classes - that equals 12 hours. On top of the 10 at the primary school.

Bright side - it's 10 classes, not actual hours. Still. Ginormous classes (45-50, instead of the 15 or less at the branch). Whatever. I thought I was going to end up with grade 1 and grade 6, but I was wrong. Grade 1 and grade 2. I can totally do that. It also means I get to go back to working with my favorite chinese teacher. :)

I'll muddle through.

wtf, body?

It was ridiculously hot and humid today. Which, okay, summer. But I managed to run out of cat food, and the nearest place that has any is right on the border of too-far-to-walk. I went anyway. Was literally dripping sweat. My clothes were soaked by the time I got home.

And what have I just gotten a craving for? Tomato soup.

Which I can't actually have. Oh, I have a few cans in the cupboard. That's not the problem. The problem is that the gas is out. Has been since Monday. Probably won't be back on until Tuesday. Something about it being unstable, which I'm trying not to think about. Hoping that's some kind of mis-translation.

In other body weirdness, I basically missed a period again. Started yesterday, just two days early for the next time. And it's not even a proper period. Super, super light. Feels like I'm wasting pads.

And tonight, I got really really... on edge? Wanted to break things. Hurt myself. Just... ugh. I seem to be over that. But it would have been nice to be able to pop a xanax. I am all out. Not even sure I can get it here.

I've been over-doing the lego-ing. My hands hurt. And I'm basically out of room for completed sets. I've started putting stuff on the window sills. Taking my chances there... Rocket has been known to get up on the sills.

School starts next week. Naturally I don't have a schedule yet. Need to confirm with management that I am indeed going to be splitting time between the primary school and the branch. And then poking the folks at the primary school. If I am indeed going there, I'll need to pop in on friday and pick up books and hopefully my schedule (hopefully. last year, they didn't have the schedule finalized. yes, three days before the term started. yeesh).

Enough rambling for now.

Take care, y'all.

Done by! Gum by!

I'm getting so close to Rivendell in my walking challenge... I might not make it till September but Strider'sbeen carrying the injured Frodo for days, we can see the Bruinen in the distance and today we reached Bilbo's trolls and Sam sang his Troll song

Not sure how much walking I'll do in Finland. Dad seems to be planning to walk between our apartment & the convention centre every day but it's nearly 2.5 miles so I doubt I'll do it that much (Dad's also signed himself up for some kind of run on the Saturday *rolls eyes*)

Anyway I'm packed and I think I have everything I need? It's not as if Helsinki is the middle of nowhere so I'm sure anything I've forgotten I can pick up there and I've definitely left space & weight for any purchases I make *g*

I realised I missed a book in my last post and I don't know how I forgot it because I've been waiting FOREVER for The Hanging Tree to come out in paperback but I did and I'll add it to August's books I think.

But what I do want to talk about a bit is my day trip to Stratford upon Avon with [personal profile] seiyaharris and particularly...

Salome @ Swan Theatre (RSC) )

And now I should probably sleep (though at least it's a relatively reasonable flight time). I'll have my tablet with me but I'll probably be mostly on twitter (@especiallysarah) because typing on a tablet is an unfun experience.
