...we had a snow day today...it was a blessing in disguise.
I woke up at 5am, peeked out the window...I saw it had snowed, but the news did not show we were closed. I woke up again around 5:30, and the school closed announcement came through the news. Then I got the two phone calls (my cell phone and the house phone)...Big Daddy got the call on his cell, I got the text, the email and my employee email. I got texts from both of my Site Coordinators. Yes, I would say that the first time for our district automated alert system worked quite well.
I say the snow day was a blessing in disguise. Yes, I had to work, but not until noon. That afforded me all sorts of extra sleep!!! I was feeling awful last night, it was the worst night yet. I was so tired and achy that I could hardly stand up!!! We ordered Pizza Hut for dinner (that just goes to show how awful I felt, I don't even LIKE Pizza Hut!!!) and waited an hour and a half for it. No, it wasn't late or anything, that is how long the delivery was expected. Supposed to show up by 7:33, came at 7:31. We ate, read a few chapters of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" (Little Man kept asking for just one more) and went to bed. I got a good night sleep for the first time in about a week!!! The thermometer never showed that I ran a fever, but I kept alternating between sweating and getting chills last night.
In a way, it was also a blessing. I worked from noon - 5pm. In preschool. We had 13 students, two being special needs (so they had one-on-ones), so there were two teachers for 11 students. I came in, the kids were finishing lunch...then they took their naps...glorious, more-than-two-hour naps!!! Parents started picking up kids after nap, and then it was time to go home!!! I can handle days like that. Plus, as much as I love Little Miss M, she can be exhausting...so it was a little break. Heck, my own son exhausts me!!! I have been burning the candle at both ends with whatever this sickness has been, so it was an appreciated break.
Since I have been so draggy lately, the house has kind of slid. It has been worse, but it has gotten me down. I will still call it "clean" because I can see countertops in the kitchen and carpet in the family room. Tonight, I was feeling good enough to unload/load the dishwasher, fold some laundry and throw a load in the washed and dryer. Doesn't sound like much, but it made a HUGE improvement!!! I even made Little Man dinner (go me!!!).
Of course, it feels like there is a huge boulder scratching at my throat, but I am functioning...that is all I can ask for.
Not certain about the state of school tomorrow. I would kind of like to know before I go to bed rather than get the phone calls/texts/emails tomorrow morning!!! Oh well, either way, I will be okay.
Love to All.
