So let me tell you...

I swear, these dirty, germy high schoolers, along with the germs my children bring home from daycare... are going to be the death of me! 
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 with an unsympathetic husband and children, it's been Good times I tell ya, good times.

...and now for two completely unrelated pictures of my darlin family:

I am so sorry you have not felt well. It does seem like an unusual year for sickness. I have some weird cold thing that won't go away! Feel better soon :). Try that weird drink in the grocery produce department that is GREEN. Tastes werid, totally good though.

Your girls are SO CUTE!!!
