Just Not Right

Things are odd here in HumidityLikeABrickWall. It's all topsy-turvy. We've gone Bizarro World.

I got sent home early from school today because the nurse caught me vomiting in the bathroom. I had a migraine that would just not! go! away!, and it was exacerbated by all six of our kindergarten classes loudly practicing their holiday songs together for next week's PTA meeting. I tried to explain to her that I would be a little better now that I'd vomited (for some strange reason, it does help with the pain somewhat...) and I was going to wash my face. She insisted that I had to go home, and even sent another teacher to my room for my school bag. Oy. So, I drove home very carefully, and slept from 2pm to 6:30pm. I still feel very disconnected and fuzzy, but no longer within the throes of the almighty pounding.

I have several Christmas-themed sweaters and sweater vests, and I like to wear them to school for the holidays. The kids always get a big kick out of them, and they help me be in a more Christmas-spirited mood. I decided to wear one of my favorite vests this morning -- it's navy blue, and depicts Santa in his sleigh, flying over the night sky to deliver presents to the houses far below. It was slightly chilly this morning, but not enough so that I needed a jacket, since I had a white t-shirt on under the vest. When we left the classroom for lunch, our thermometer said 81 degrees! 81 freaking degrees! My headache was probably not helped much by the fact that I was DYING OF HEATSTROKE!

It's hard to get into the Christmas spirit when you're sweating like a construction worker, is all I'm saying.

Ergh. I hope you're feeling better and that the weather becomes more comfortable.

I'll trade you for the snowstorm we're about to have!

I haven't had a migraine for quite some time (knock on wood). There is not much that is worse. I hope you are feeling better.

The idea of you dying of heatstroke because you wanted to be festive is funny in a perverse sense of humor way. May it cool down as it gets closer to Christmas.

Tee hee. We're expecting 10-14 inches of snow in the next 24 hours!

Sorry the weather made you feel under the weather.

Migraines are horrible and I feel for you.

Wait.

81 degrees? As in... EIGHTY ONE?

It snowed here, overnight, adding 4-5" of hateful white icy particles of certain death to the existing 8-12" we had on Thursday night.

Seriously.

I didn't realize it could be 81 degrees anywhere in the lower 48 right now.

Well... never mind, feel better!!!
