face only, scary

Organisation. We have none.

I fear my livejournal entries might be very boring for a while. I am trying to acquire organisation so I have time to get my academic work done as well as teaching the kiddies. Unfortunately, I am starting from a position of almost zero organisation. Our house is disgustingly dirty, I am totally behind with family birthdays etc., and I have very few spoons. I also have a piece of coursework hanging over me that was due in on 15th January. Argh.

Anyway, I've made a list of my exams & the students' exams, and I'm trying to figure out when I'm going to take time off for my own revision. I've decided that I'm going to make my students book ALL their lessons as far in advance as possible so that we all know what's going on - at least up until June 8th, when my exams finish. That way, no one can whine that they were "expecting" to have more lessons in a given week (or at least, they'll get the whining out of the way early). Sounds like a plan? Sounds like a scary plan, though. I'm somewhat leery of booking an entire week off as "me time" because sod's law dictates that that will be when I go down with whatever disease is going to follow the current cold-thing... Oh, for a functioning immune system!
