9 pm - Get in a fight with The Beard over something stupid right before bed, the night before my first day of school because that's maturity! #marriage
10 pm - Go to bed grumbling
11 pm - Actually put down my phone after reading every article on Buzzfeed
12 pm - 4:30 am - Have roughly 7 stress dreams about missing Mitch's call, sleeping through school, rampaging gorillas, the usual. Approximate sleep time = 1 hour.
4:30-5:30 am - Lie awake cuddling Glen Coco and trying to get the panic in my chest to subside, even like 2%
5:30 am - Elder Budge calls from the airport! We got to talk to him for almost 45 minutes until he boarded the plane and the stewardesses made everyone hang up. It was awesome. He even bore his testimony to us in Japanese!
6:30 am - Sneeze and burn my hand while curling my hair. Glen Coco licks me furiously, gravely concerned. Thanks, nose. I couldn't have done it without you.
7:05 am - Dance my way out the door and into my silent classroom for some awkward outfit photos
Top: Victoria's Secret, Skirt: Cozy, Heels: Forever Young Shoes, Belt: F21
First Day Activity - I ask the kids for some input about the kind of class they want, they write their thoughts on stickies and put them on the board for us to talk about
3:30 pm - I stumble into my apartment, change into sweats and notice my numb toes have returned. Curse of the heels. But they're just so cute!
5:00 pm - The Beard comes home and makes me homemade pasta because he's THAT cool.
Here I am, several days later, toes still numb, burn still glaring, throat strained and still smiling. Three days down, 177 to go. :)
