    Ok...so hopefully you guys will feel my pain! I normally get sick at the beginning of each year...but this year it's bad! I got a horrible head cold and had to use a sub day today! On only the 9th day of school! Our district due to budget cuts cut our days from 10 a year to 5 undocumented. We still have an additional 5 but they have to be documented (like a drs note or proof of a death in the family). Now if you're like me, I hate going to the dr if I just have a head cold. I feel that its more beneficial to stay in bed all day and just rest. So...now I'm down to 4 days left. Ugh! :(

    I understand how you feel. I've got a sinus headache that had me so nauseated yesterday and I had 2 screamers that morning. (I teach preschool special ed.) One got made because we were trying to keep him awake and the other was running a low grade temp. Nice way to start the year off. I was useless when I got home last night. Today was much better!

    I usually don't get sick until winter break :( but my dd was sick (really bad head cold) within three days of school starting and I have had several students with the same really bad head cold.

    I hope you feel better soon and don't have to use anymore of your days :)

    Feel better Thrifty! I have been fighting something, thought it may be allergy related but am not sure. Wake myself up coughing at night, although during the day not too bad.

    Gosh, already? I'm hoping that my new school doesn't introduce me to new germs (probably will...).

    I guess I should start popping some Vitamin C now. I hope you feel better soon!!!
