Here we go....

Yikes. I officially got my first sickness of the school year. Tues of last week I started to get a little cough/sore throat... nothing terribly bad! By Thursday I had no voice. Nada. Zilch. It was bad! But I figured I could teach through it. Turned out to be harder than I thought! 18 five and six year olds with a teacher who couldn't talk.... a little chaotic.
That night my college BFF Rebecca was flying into town and a bunch of our sorority sisters came over to my house to eat and gab. It was sooooooooo nice to see their beautiful faces and catch up. But.... it was a little hard with the no voice and feeling crappy. Oh well.




Friday I probably should have taken the day off but I decided not to. We had a big ice cream social for the staff that I needed to prepare for and I genuinely love my kiddos and didn't want to be away. By the end of the day I was death run over. After Nick and I ate some dinner I crashed and burned. Literally by 630 pm. I didn't wake up until after 8am the next day. I proceeded to sleep the day away. (Thank goodness Nick is super dad!) I woke up to do grade some reading tests and do some school work.... then back to bed it was.

I woke up this morning and decided to hit up the Urgent Care. I just couldn't do deal with the crappy throat/voice! So ... walked out with a Z-pack.. Sooo should have done this sooner! Anyways- I have another busy week in first grade , not to mention picture day tomorrow! So fingers crossed I start feeling better soon!!
Is anyone else as excited as I am for fall? I soooooooooooooo want it to be October. Lots to look forward to: football, cooler weather, trips to the zoo, our annual pumpkin carving party, Halloween, etc!

Love to you all!

Glad your feeling better! you should post some tips you do (if you do any) to hoard away sickness. I am sure there are so many germs in the schools.

are you getting better now? Pei Pa Koa (www.geocities.jp/ninjiom_hong_kong/index_e.htm ) is one of the few Chinese natural cough remedies that have been scientifically studied. it's something like herb plus honey, and it's sweet, thick and black in color. If you have a cough, look for it! It used to be one of my favourite natural cough remedies.

if your cough persists, seek professional help such as traditional Chinese medicine physicians - I have had very good experiences with them.
