Cough and splutter

It is lunch time and I am home. I didn't have many lessons today and as I am coughing and spluttering and still deaf, and generally giving the impression of contagion in a highly attractive fashion, I got permission to come home and flop and fix myself as fast as possible. I have mentioned that I do NOT do "sick" or not well. But I am rather weak and feeble at the moment, and my eyes keep closing and I fall asleep. In fact, I nodded off at a staff meeting yesterday after school too. The head speaks softly and could have been speaking Swahili for all I knew. I could not hear a thing. So I am going to move the rocker to the window in the sun and doze off. I want to be back tomorrow.

School has been ok so far, but that could be because I can't hear the kids. There are some positives here!

UPDATE: later

You are all so sweet. I think being pathetic weak and feeble is to be recommended. I slept for 2 hours this afternoon. You may be able to tell I am used to being invincible. Admitting I am not is a new thing for me.
However, normal service will resume tomorrow. One day is enough. And I look like the hunchback of Notre Dame when I lever myself out of the rocker, so sitting here for much longer is not a good idea. I may never straighten up again. Creaking is not desirable.

It's just no fun to be sick. Do you think maybe you have an ear infection from being plugged up? I hope not! Take it easy.

I'm so sorry your ailing....but you still make me laugh, even when you're not feeling well yourself. THAT is a real gift, Linds. I loved:

I'm not a nice sick person myself. It's better for me and everyone else if you just leave me alone to either get better or die. :-)

Hope you feel better soon.

Hugs,
