Just Today

Up at 6 am. Did not sleep well. I think it was the protein powder added to the pasta sauce last night. Kate doesn't eat the animals and brought some to add to the food. My body is FILLED with gas.

Did not jump rope today. Jumped rope for a total of like five minutes yesterday morning and now I cannot walk. I think this is a sign that my calves had withered away to nothingness.

Went to school. No first period class. Spent the period fixing lesson plan for tomorrow. Upon second look, I realized I had forgotten to include a Year 12 topic for word-processing in my yearly plan and tomorrow was the ideal day for it to be added in.

Second, third, fourth and fifth periods. My classes are suspiciously small. Friday was cut off for paying school fees. Students who have not paid were sent home today. One class of 12 was down to five students. Some of them will come back. The questions is how long before they come back and how much will they have missed by the time they return?

Waited after school for the eight students who were late to class today (I give my students five minutes after the bell rings and then they are late) to show up for their punishment — help me clean the computer lab. Only one kid comes. He and I dust the computers and desks. The rest of them will have detentions tomorrow, which is handled by the vice-pule, not me and lasts a lot longer and is out in the hot sun wedding, not in the air-conditioned computer lab dusting. 

Went home and ate my fa'aSamoa lunch: bread and butter.

Do it again tomorrow.

Hmmm, I think I will have to consult with your sister about bringing some proper nutrition with us for you. What with the withering calves, the protein gas cloud, and the bread and butter lunches, you are in desperate need of something.
