Sick and Tired

Offspring shared her illness with me. Normally, I encourage sharing, but this is not one of the instances where I find myself pleased that she's done so. I got sent home from school yesterday. Apprarently, I looked ghastly enough that they just sent me home without me having to even see the school nurse -- my temp was 102 when I got home. I slept from about 2pm until 6:30pm, when my loving husband woke me up for dinner. He'd done the dishes *and* cooked, letting me sleep all the while. Today was supposed to be a work day for staff, but I was told to stay home today as well, and found that when I woke up this morning, I felt entirely too awful to face actually getting dressed and puttering aound in the classroom all day. So, I called in, and went back to bed.

It's slightly ironic that I had previously posted about Offspring being sick, and that I liked the laziness of her sick days, and here I am - at home in bed on a sick day of my own, hacking my lungs out and not enjoying it in the slightest.

Ohhhh dear. Have a fresh box of tissue and some lemon tea. (Or not, if you hate lemon tea!)

I hope you feel better soon. Though, you have to admit, it feels good to stay home (even sick) once in a while, eh?

(And gotta love JF for cooking and cleaning! Woot!)

A pity, isn't it, when some of the only days where we have any real excuse for escaping the world are the days we are least able to enjoy such an escape! When I had crypto, I had a full week off from school and I couldn't read, or blog, or watch movies. I could only lay staring at the wall, wretched.

I hope you are feeling better. I recommend ice water with lemon and nibbling on matzoh. It helps me when I'm feverish.
