For an idea of my activities today, see Ella Blue's picture.
As a teacher I think it is 10 times harder to miss a day of school. It is so hard to prepare for, get a sub and deal with the following school day's mess. I hate missing school. I know so much about my students and teaching that I don't like a stranger with them.
Yesterday (after a late night with Husband's work party on Wednesday) I developed a low-grade fever around mid-morning. So I called the doctor for an appointment. I rarely get fevers. They were able to see me yesterday and thought I had the beginning stages of Strep Throat. I then came home and went to sleep. By the time Husband came home I had developed a fever to 101.8. I decided then that I would not be going into school today. After calling some subs, I was able to secure one (a good one, thankfully) and went back to bed.
Today I have not left the bed much. There have been lots of naps, some medicine for the pain of my throat and of course a pill from a lovely Z-Pack the doctor gave me yesterday. I am feeling a little better. The most difficult thing that I have done has been input some typical meal and food items into SparkPeople which I started on Tuesday.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend our Young Professionals Christmas party tonight. It makes me sad because I was going to be cute in black tights, a shorter than typical gray wool skirt and a tight 3/4 length black turtle neck. And I was going to do some fun things with my hair using hot-rollers for a big, holiday party style. Too bad... PJs and a messy ponytail it is tonight (as it has been all day).
Back to napping!
