I usually work 3 days a week, except in November and December and April and May when I work 5. This week I was only going to work today because the school is closed so all the teachers can work on their new spring wardrobes without feeling rushed. (Not really....teacher conferences, I think.) I went in this morning and stayed only about 30 minutes. I have a bad sore throat ( I don't guess there is a good sore throat, is there?). Any way, my sweet boss Bonnie said, "Go home." But, I feel a responsibility to be there, especially when I know it is a big day..(Valentines Parties). However, the more I talked, the worse I sounded, and the longer I was up, the worse I felt. The teachers just insisted that I come back home. So, I left them with a video to play for the kids to sing along to, and I left before they changed their minds. Stopped and picked up Alex's meds, and made a run to Dobb's for some Camp Stew. Got home, put in a load of clothes, put the stew in the crockpot on low, and now I am in my flannel pajamas...not the penguin ones...these have snowflakes in lovely shades of pink and green and aqua...and I am tucked into bed. Here I plan to stay unless the dog needs to visit the backyard or Alex needs me. Oh, yeah. I have to do those clothes and 1 more load cause Don is going out of town on Friday. But, in between all of that...I am going to rest and feel better.
I am so blessed to work with the sweetest women in town. They are the best!

Hope you feel better soon! I'm not sick, but the thought of putting on warm jammies and getting into bed sounds pretty good to me.

Feel better soon. I know the feeling of resting in between stuff!

Sure hope you feel better soon. Lots of the "crud" going around I heard. Loved the cute Valentine cartoons!

Happy Valentines!

Ha, ha! Lynne's comment was exactly what I was going to say (great minds think alike, you know.)

I like that idea of having off school so the staff can work on their spring wardrobe. I'll have to see if we can get that on our schedule for next year!

Get rid of that sore throat in a hurry. And I'll preach it again - green tea, Hall's Defense Lozenges, and Zicam, Zicam, Zicam. Oh, and rub your neck with Vicks Vaporub. I have no idea if it really works, but the smell reminds me of when I was a little girl, and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
