I was feeling under the weather,sore throat and general malaise, and took the day off. I must have slept for 20 hours that day. I ditched the sore throat but the general blahness has persisted. I’m here at work and trying to “fake it, until I make it”. We only have a four days until Winter break is upon us. Hooray for scheduled time off!
I know for me, I feel guilty if I’m not at work. I love what I do and basically don’t trust anyone with my kids. Possessive, I know. When I got back to work yesterday I heard the kids did better in Science than they had all year. UGH! Was the sub-interpreter better? I am I failure as an interpreter? All these questions racing through my brain. I know I shouldn’t feel that way but I think it’s human. Without the daily feedback of a co-interpreter I am always doubting my ability.
Being human can be a burden 😀
