Ok, I have to admit that I am feeling totally sorry for myself this week. I am at the bottom and I really can't see the top of the well. I have to stop feeling sorry for myself, kick myself in the ass, and get myself back to doing what I do well---teach.
This is the first week of the next to last four and a half week block of classes. I have nine students in the largest block and they can see my lack of enthusiasm. They aren't stupid and they can tell I'm peddling without a chain.
I want to cry all of the time, but I have obligations that make it impossible for me to do so. I love my family I love my work, and I love my dogs and cats. I just can't seem to get myself out of this funk.
