Sick of being Sick

January 19th, 2009

I have officially met my quota of sick for 2009. Seriously. This week was ridiculous.
Last Sunday I went to bed feeling very tired but didn’t really think about it because it had been a long week and a busy weekend.
Woke up around 4:30 in the morning with the stomach flu.
Stayed home sick from work Monday and Tuesday.
Went to work Wednesday. Not because I was feeling great but because I was sick of writing lesson plans for the substitute. (For those of you who are not teachers writing sub plans is the reason most teachers come to school sick and/or never take vacation. Sub plans are the biggest pain and many times it’s just easier to go to work sick than to try and write sub plans while sick.)
Went to work Thursday.
Thursday night went to bed with a slightly sore throat. I thought it was because we had the fireplace on and it was really dry in the house.
5:15 Friday morning. Guess who’s awake with 102 fever and writing sub plans? Yeah. Me.
Slept all day Friday.
Saturday woke up. Fever’s up to 104. Much more sleeping.
Sunday woke up with slight fever and headache (probably from laying in bed since Thursday night).
It’s now 1:40 in the morning and I’m not tired – sleeping for two and a half days can do that to you.
I’m just glad that Monday and Tuesday there is no school.
