Ok, let me run down my week so far....
Monday~V-Day~My sinuses started their thing Sunday, but I went to work, as usual. We had 16 kids (2 new that did nothing but stand in one place and cry... no.... make that a screaming cry... ALL DAY!
Emily W., who is just cute as can be-- and when she smiles.... Oh My God... this girl should be famous some day.... and Olivia, a dark eyed, dark haired beauty who has the most piercing cry I've ever heard. We had our Valentine's Day party, which was alright... but they are 1-yr-olds, you know... Some parents came and those kids went home early. I was there until 5:50 (woo-hoo), so I made my class on time for a change :)
We talked about bedtime issues and how to get kids to go to & stay in bed. I think I was the only one who didn't have a problem getting their kid to go to bed. Gracie loves her bed and her room. Sure, she argues some when I tell her it's bedtime.... but once she's in bed-she's asleep.
They asked me my 'trick' and I said she's been sleeping in her room since she was 9 months old. Same ritual, same time... all the time. It'll be harder the older the child gets.... Super Nanny is on it, most of the time. :)
Tuesday: Sinuses throbbing.... it was 65 degrees (F) outside and sunny. Do you think I got to enjoy any of it? A big fat NOPE on that... I spent my day laying on the couch, puking in between taking and picking the girl up from school. I called work to see if anyone else got sick, but no one did.
I didn't 'feel' bad other than the sinuses... just couldn't keep anything down. (And don't even go there....unless God himself knocked me up~that's out of the question). So, Mom got a doc to get me a Z-pak (Zithromax)... and that thing cost $63.99 for 6 pills! It better knock this out in one day for that money!
Today: I went to work only to find out one of the kids who was there on Monday had pink eye, Ms. Hurricane had the runs x6 on Tuesday (plus 3 more that night) and was there today and had 2 more..... she went home early. My sinuses still hurt..... now my throat is sore (There was a case of strep throat in Gracie's classroom last week -the day before their V-Day party....but she is fine).
Now... other than pregnancy, I don't get sick (I don't count colds as sick)...... or.... I used to not get sick. I take vitamins and wash my hands all the time....knew I should've invested in Airborne, damn it... but this sucks. I will not be sick all the time.... I can't be~I'm such a baby when I'm sick. Of course, I'm still smoking.... not as much, but still am.
So, that's where things stand at this moment. Tomorrow is either worse or better.... we'll see :) I was supposed to have a staff meeting tomorrow, but it was postponed. That may be a very good thing....
Have a good night all.... hope alerts start working soon :)
