However, much as I know that kids pick up everything once they’re packed in a classroom with others, at no point did I think that returning to school would do the same for me!
I was two weeks in when I first came down with Pneumonia… then later a chest infection, Pneumonia again, stomach flu and strep! On top of that… throw in two cracked teeth and a root canal! All the while… I did my best to attend every class and only missed out when I absolutely couldn’t stand another second but NOT ONCE (OK… just once) did I hand an assignment in late!
School is just about over and I’m on a 5 week project… flat out with kids and work and YOU GUESSED IT… I got a cold that couldn’t just be a cold as this week… it turned into a double ear infection!
WHAT AM I THREE???
I’m burning the candle on both ends and every now and then my body rebels. My friend Gloss tells me my body hates me. Charming! (For the record… Gloss is losing a little of his shiny exterior!!!)
I’ve just spent two days on the couch with absolutely no equilibrium and feeling like my head is a giant pumpkin. Each time I stand, I’m holding onto walls and I can barely hear a thing despite the TV being on warp nine! I can’t drive… I’m in pain… and I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired!
I’m medicated, frustrated, exasperated and defeated but on a good note… I’ve managed to get most of my work done while sitting somewhat slanted in my chair!
There’s just a little over a week left… and if all goes well I’ll finish with my body in tact! Albeit, a little worse for wear!
Next year, I’ll add a box of tissues to my supply list!
