I wish I knew what was up with Nathan. He went to the nurse twice yesterday because of stomach pain. He complains about pain or being nauseous often. For a while, we thought he was just getting uncomfortable when he didn't want to do something---he always seemed to complain when it was time to leave for school, or go to bed. But, now I am wondering if there is more to that--like the timing of those things connected to when he is eating. He also isn't sleeping well. Waking up early or often during the night, and not falling asleep for up to 2 hours after being sent to bed. I feel bad for him--something is not right. I also feel bad that we have viewed this as more of a ploy for attention (since it happened so often, and we couldn't see a reason for him to ALWAYs not feel good, or not be able to go to sleep). Poor kid--what if he really has some sort of issue that we have basically ignored and felt he was just putting on the drama so he'd get out of doing what he didn't want to do?
Okay--so, I think I am going to be more diligent in trying to figure out what is going on. I don't think he is doing this on purpose anymore.
Today I woke up early, and for some reason just felt like I wanted to NOT be considerred for that teaching interview. Like the timing was way off. Yesterday, even though I felt like it was probally not the right time....I also was excited by the thought of it. But now....not so much.....I actually get sick to my stomach (oh no, me too?) just thinking about the thought of interviewing. Plus, nothing is in order....how could I be considerred? I don't have an application in or on file, my certification isn't up to speed, I haven't touched my resume since 1994, and I have so little done in my portfolio! Like I said, if this mores forward, it would seriously be a miricle. One I may find myself fighting along the way!
