On the mend

The cold kicked my butt this week.  Every day that I went to school I regretted it.  I would think that I was feeling ok and then I would get to school and have a sneezing fit or just feel blah.  On Thursday I finally decided that I wasn’t been productive in any way and that I should just go get some rest, so I left school around 2:30.  I had to go to the grocery store which was exhausting but I had to get dog food.  I also got some soup and stuff for grilled cheese sandwiches.  That always sounds good when I’m sick.  I got home and got in bed.  Matt got home a little after 5:00.  He headed out to a library meeting that I decided not to attend.  I stayed in bed and watched The Big Bang Theory and was asleep by 10:00.  I was coughing in the middle of the night so by the next morning I still felt exhausted.  I talked myself into taking the day off to get more rest.  I’m glad I did.  I ended up sleeping until almost 11:00 a.m.  I just stayed in bed most of the day.  I started having some coughing fits yesterday evening, but I took a Mucinex and that seemed to help.  Matt cooked burgers on the grill and then we had to get the bed set up in Josh’s room since he was going to come home for the weekend.  I still felt tired and weak so I stayed in bed most of the evening.  I got up to visit with Josh when he got home and then went to bed around 11:30.  I slept in this morning until about 10:00 and am feeling much better.  Still not 100% but I think I’m on the mend at least. 

I have a band concert at 2:00 today.  I’ll be glad to get that over with.  I’m not sure what we’re going to do about Matt’s desk that is in Josh’s room.  It has fallen apart in the move and I’m not sure we can put it back together without some kind of professional help.  Neither of us are very handy when it comes to stuff like that.  I think it might be easier to just buy him a new desk.  Well, I guess I should get up and going.  I probably shouldn’t stay in bed all weekend.

Jinxed by Matt

So yesterday after church Matt was asking if my work pays for flu shots and I said I wasn’t sure but that I never get a flu shot because I haven’t gotten the flu in several years.  I said that I thought I had a pretty good immunity by working in schools.  So of course today I have to eat those words.  I went to school today and knew that I was feeling “off.”  I started getting a headache this morning and tried to call Matt to bring me tylenol.  Of course he left his phone in the car.  When he did get there, he headed back out to get me tylenol.  It took a long while for my headache to subside.  I took tylenol around 11 this morning and my head was still hurting around lunch time at 2:00.  I took two more pills and the headache finally went away.  I left school at 4:15 which was maybe a first for me all year.  I picked up some dinner and took a benadryl when I got home.  It knocked me out before I finished watching Big Bang Theory around 5:45.  I went to bed and slept until around 8:30.  I’ve decided that I either have a cold or major allergies.  I don’t think it is the flu – no fever, not really feeling achy.  All I know is that I’m feeling a bit miserable at the moment and now I’m waiting for the second benadryl to kick in.  Matt has been very good to me.  He went to the store at got me some ginger ale.

Same Old Stuff

Can’t say that anything exciting is going on here.  Matt has moved in and there’s boxes all over the place again.  Eventually we’ll get it sorted with much of it stored in the attic.  I finally ordered a dresser for Matt since I wouldn’t allow his ugly 70’s dresser in the bedroom. 

Last week was extremely busy at school and it keeps piling up.  I’ve been asked to create a template for library websites for all the secondary schools in the district based on my own website.  I guess I have to stop being so awesome.  My Scrabble club is still growing.  I  have 30-40 students that come in before school.  I have students during all three lunches and some that even stay after school.  I finalized my major book orders and got those submitted.  The book fair was in the library so I had deal with that as well.  I’ll be glad to get my library back to somewhat normal functions this next week. 

My class reunion is coming up and so I’ve been working on that this weekend.  I’m trying to get the t-shirt order finalized.  I also have to print the name tags for the reunion as well. It’s not for another two weeks but it will get here before I know it.  I booked a hotel in Abilene because  we’ll be leaving here Thursday evening and drive halfway. 

I’ve actually done some reading lately. I finished Sue Grafton’s “W is for Wasted” which I enjoyed.   I also read “Cuckoo’s Calling” by JK Rowling written under a pseudonym.  Today I didn’t do much of anything.  I actually changed into my pajamas a little while ago.  I figured I wouldn’t be going out this evening so I might as well be comfortable.  Matt just called and is on his way home from playing Scrabble.  I ordered a pizza online and he is going to pick it up.  I’m fighting a headache right now so I think I’ll just take it easy this evening.
