Ahhhh, the joys of teaching elementary school!

Current joy: Bronchitis! Yes, the lovely cold I've been trying to treat all weekend finally forced me to the after hours clinic this afternoon. It is bronchitis. I've got an antibiotic and two cough medicines: one for day and a narcotic syrup for night. So at least I'll sleep well, right?

I also have laryngitis, so I had already decided not to try to work AND go to class tomorrow. Wednesday will remain to be seen. The doctor gave me an excuse for Wed. too if I need it...not that I usually give doctor's notes to work, but hey, if anyone asks, right? This is a stinky week to be gone from school, but it just can't be helped!

I slept much of Saturday, most of Sunday, and then drug myself through the day today. Sleeping as much as possible tomorrow is planned up until time to get ready for class!

Hope that you are feeling better soon. Darn kids anyways, I know around here they can only miss so many days without court being involved, so they drag their germy butts in to spread the love. :(
Sorry you caught the nasties, hopefully it will be over soon.
