Under the Weather

Please forgive my lapse, but I’ve been a bit under the weather the last few days.

My throat started hurting last Tuesday afternoon.  It hurt all day Wednesday.

Still, I denied that I had a cold, chalking it up to the change in weather and the release of a month’s worth of stress.

Thursday, I woke up feeling better, but then I started sneezing.

I attended my school’s Homecoming football game that evening…probably not the best idea…because when I woke up on Friday, I felt as though I’d been hit by a truck.

I got up anyhow, went to school, and taught, despite the tightness in my chest.

My students mercifully were gentle with me and cooperated fully as I executed my lesson plans.

Friday afternoon, when I got home, I put myself in my pajamas…

And stayed that way…




Saturday, I woke up with one of the worst headaches I’ve ever head…to the point that I was crying.

It felt as though someone had stuck an axe in the middle of my head.

My intent was to lesson plan.

I couldn’t sit up straight.

I conceded defeat and admitted that yes, indeed, I did, in fact, have a full-blown cold.


I spent most of the day asleep on the couch after dosing myself with migraine medicine.

When I woke up, my headache was gone, but my head was still very stuffy, and my nose would not stop running.

I skipped church on Sunday even though I felt a little better.  I was able to finish my lesson planning for the week.

Today, I thought I was feeling better, but my head started feeling worse as the day progressed.

Still, I persevered, got through the day, and am now at home.

I’ve worked on lesson plans (I’m forever tweaking) and am going to enjoy the rest of my evening in front of the TV.

So, I apologize for not writing.  If I could have put coherent thoughts together, I would have.

Hope you guys are managing to stay away from the ickiness that seems to be going around.
