I feel so yucky

I'm sick.I am a teacher and a mother, and I do not get sick.  I get headaches, sometimes a sniffly nose, a sore throat occasionally, but I do not get sick.
My sick days are for my children. My parents live nearby and watch them with a fever and an earache, but I stay home when materials are being expelled forcefully.
My family left for church, and I went back to bed for a five hour nap.  After falling asleep at 8:30 last night after the birthday party.  I've been awake almost for an hour and a half. And I want to go take another nap.
My very hands-on student has had a horrendous cough for about two weeks now, and accidentally coughed into my eye earlier this week. I decided I would be fine. That afternoon my eye started to get sticky like a pink-eye infection  ( I get those from my students occasionally too). But it went away. And then my throat started to hurt a little. And I started to cough a little. Oh and a fever. And now everything is really BIG. I feel bad for my kiddo at school. How has he stayed in class and participated feeling like THIS??? We are off tomorrow for President's Day, which is good because otherwise I might actually take a sick day for me.
Sorry the fantasy and reality for Mice and Beans isn't done.  If my fever breaks, I might get to finish it. I'm going back to bed.


  1. Feel better soon! I have felt the same way since Thursday...with an added BAD earache. I have slept most of the weekend and have no energy to do anything. I have been looking at the blogs for about 15 minutes and feel like I need to go lay back down before I fall asleep at the computer. My kids don't come to school tomorrow, but its a professional development day for me...I gotta feel better.

    Praying for you!
