Dozy, the 8th dwarf

You know when you're in need of a long good holiday when you doze off during a staff meeting and your principal asks with concern if you're ok, because you look really tired.

The answer you really want to give: yeah, no shit

The answer that eventually leaves your lips: A little bit, have had marking to clear.

Understatement of the year.

So, I fight traffic and sleep all the way home and nap for 2 1/2 hours only to just wake up and wonder whether it's time to go to school because it's dark and quiet all around me.

They really ought to start giving out MCs for exhaustion. Especially for teachers. Especially when it's near exams.

Now, that should have been in the PM's Rally speech.

hang in there, babe -hug- hope you get a breather from marking season soon. my teacher friend explained how many hours of marking she has in front of her right now and i was horrified. :p good luck!
