    I'm not getting any better, but I'm not getting any worse either. It's been an action packed weekend...I'm kinda hoping the cold bugs decide I don't have time for them and fly off somewhere else.

    2 weekends ago, my throat was really hurting and drinking Coke during the weekend actually "healed" my throat! :)

    Well; this weekend, I have been sneezing and sniffling away. This morning, while blowing my nose, ugh...I can't even think of staying home; my teacher aide is in the hospital!!
    And tomorrow is picture day for us too! oh well.
    Could be worse!

    I'm staying home today... I don't want to, but I've been running a fever since yesterday and I feel miserable. I'm a first year teacher and I'm completely drained. I haven't felt this bad is a long time!! We have a field trip on Thursday and I don't want to miss that.

    I still have to go in this morning to take my kids to school and make copies for the sub. This is my first time using a sub and I'm amazed how much work it is. No wonder teachers don't like to take time off!!

    I had three kids out last week with strep. One came back Friday and told me had hadn't been to the doctor. I catch EVERYthing. Sure enough, by the end of the day I was popping cough drops one after another. I tried to rest all weekend (so I didn't grade any papers), and I made it in today. I am so medicated I feel like my head is in a fog. The kids keep asking if they did something wrong because I'm not talking as much.

    I'm officially sick after 5 weeks of school. I felt it coming on this past Friday with a little throat tickle. As of last night that tickle has transitioned into PAIN. My goal today is to feel better by tomorrow... and if I fail then I need to feel better by Thursday when I go back to teaching (I'm half-time). Bleh, time to go find some tea, a blanket, and a good movie to nap to.
