I went back to work today.
It was good; pretty much what I expected. I was glad to see the kiddos and they were eager to share with me what they got for Christmas. I was pleasantly surprised when they sat quietly and listened to my vacation story before they got to tell their own. There's hope for them yet. ;)
I have been sick for quite a while now. This cold doesn't seem to want to leave. I'm still slightly congested and I can't seem to get rid of this infernal cough. It's both frustrating and very tiring.
It seems like we might end up with a day off tomorrow. The weather here, like most of the country, is turning bitterly cold and since a good portion of our student body has to travel outside to get from one class to the next, our administration is leaning toward closing. I have to tell you that honestly, I would more than welcome the extra day to rest. It's amazing how tiring being sick can make you. I went out for a little bit yesterday and, having not been out of the house for almost a week, I was exhausted by the time I got home. An extra day of rest is very appealing.
Stay warm, wherever you are! miss raven and I will be snuggling under the electric blanket and doing our best to keep toasty!
