What a way to start spring break...

...that is to be home sick in bed. I guess it is better than having to miss school and plan for a sub because trying to do that while sick really sucks. I've been gone to El Paso since last Wednesday. It was uneventful for my students. One broke to a quarter-final round and the new speech coach forgot about entering them into consolation events so they had nothing to do on Saturday until he and I were finished with our duties in the tab room. Luckily we were done by 2:00 so we left and took the kids to the mall. This was a bad place to be for someone that gave up shopping for Lent. Well, I have been meaning to buy new bras for some time. You have to understand that I rarely get frivolous and buy a new bra for the heck of it. Basically I wait until my one good one is so worn out that I must replace. It was getting to that point. You should also understand that I have only been able to find a great fitting bra at Victoria's Secret. So I'm at the mall with a Victoria Secret store. But I somewhat justify the purchase because it was more of a necessity than a want. But then later I also found a pair of jeans (in a smaller size than I've been wearing) as well as a new shirt at JC Penny's. So I felt a little guilty for those but I vowed that I would not buy ANY new clothes that were the size I've been wearing. New jeans are still snug, but they zip AND button and I have to say I look rather good in them.
On Saturday I could feel the beginnings of a sore throat. We had a late dinner and I came back to the hotel and just crawled in bed. We left at 8:00-ish on Sunday morning which was really 9:00-ish Texas time, but really 8:00-ish prior to the time change. It was an uneventful drive, but I could tell a cold was creeping up. My eyes watered. I sneezed some. Just felt a general blah and drank my weight in cokes on the way home. (So much for the diet)
I saw Josh for all of about a minute before I took a benadryl and some tylenol and went to bed (at 6:00 p.m.) yesterday. Now he's gone on a boy's road trip so I still won't see him for a few more days. So it's spring break and I'm sick. I wanted to take a few days to really be on a BREAK, but of course I have homework due tomorrow. (What kind of teacher makes an assignment due during spring break?) But I've declared today a "Stay in bed so I can maybe feel better and just read, sleep, surf, and take it easy kind of day."
I guess I won't be heading to Key West this year for spring break. Though I did threaten Marty that if it snowed during the break this year, he should expect me. Today it is rainy which is fine. I'm just sick of snow.

Ach herrjeh ... tea, book, bed, snowball - sorry ... maybe your body simply tells you "I want a break"? So, pause. :)
