My Day Looked Like This

September 21, 2009

1 am:  wake up after several hours tossing and turning, with a very bad cold.  decide there is no way I am going to work.  spend 1 am – 3 am revising lesson plan, printing handouts, etc. so that my colleague can cover my classes while simultaneously teaching hers (no small feat)

3 – 6:30 am: doze, sneeze, toss, turn, curse

6:30 am: email boss, colleagues, help kids get ready for school.  it’s 30 degrees outside, wtf?

9:00 am:  put dinner in crockpot.  try to sleep.  stare out window.  notice it is snowing (briefly). again, wtf?

12:00 pm: soup. tea. cnn.  all bad news.  try to work for a while, give up. check to see if i have a fever, but no, temp is subnormal.  weird.

3:00 pm: mom calls, she has a flat tire, can’t pick up kids.  briefly consider showering and rushing out to get kids.  call neighbor to pick them up instead.  cough, sneeze.

on the agenda for the evening:  shower? brush teeth?  supervise homework.  make sure kids eat dinner.  lesson plans for tomorrow. sleep.

    I hate those kind of onset-of-autumn not-quite-colds! Maybe you need to be taking something extra for your immune system?

    Oh, take care of yourself~! I think a subnormal temperature IS a temperature in a different form…at least that is what I recall. Sometimes a cold can be worse than the flu, I think!
