Today's end of the day could not have come sooner. So, it's the end of the school year and the end of the paper work has started. This is by far the most stressful time of the year...even more so than end of the year testing. I stopped working with my church's choir to alleviate some of my stress, but this week has been really bad and it's only Wednesday. I knew the week would deal a lot of pain when the insomnia kicked back in. I've been in really bad, extreme fatigue causing pain since Sunday. But it has catapulted into something today that I have not experienced for a while. I literally hurt from my lower jaw down to the bottom of my feet. Most evenings I've relaxed enough so that the pain will diminish quite a bit, but tonight it seems to be getting worse. Really hoping I can get enough sleep/rest so that I don't experience this tomorrow.  But through all the pain, the thing that scared/bothered me the most was when I was having a conversation with my husband about a little boy hit by a foul ball and in the midst of my sentence, I started to say the word 'injury', but couldn't remember the word after the first syllable.  I took at least 30-45 seconds to think of the word and the. Say it. That's a long time when you're used to constantly thinking on your feet. Oh well, what adventures await me tomorrow.
