Since December 26th, I have been sick every.single.day. And not with the same illness, mind you, but a fun, colorful rainbow of them. Which is totally weird for me because I don't normally find myself a sickly person. Granted, I need to get myself a flu shot, and should have done so months ago- but yadda yadda I'm busy, blah blah... and NOW I can't get WELL ENOUGH to get the damn shot, further preventing myself from detracting below mentioned illnesses!
I am attributing it to the fact that I (a) am around lots o germs beings as a teach in a high school with a 65% poverty population (b) send both of my children to childcare 5 days a week (c) do not get entirely enough un-interrupted sleep a night.
So, without further ado: a list of the various sicknesses I have been living with in the last 3 weeks:
- A fever of 99-101 degrees with no other symptoms for 10 days straight that developed into...
- A dry, unproductive cough for 1 week
- On Saturday, I had the runs and threw up 1 time, but did not feel sick
- Today, I woke up with my right nostril plugged and an itchy right eye and the sneezes
...and now for two completely unrelated pictures of my darlin family:
