While I taught first grade for a week, I dealt with runny noses, upset tummies, and one barfer I was thrilled when I made it to Friday without even a hint of a sniffle. Ha ha! Score one for me!
Monday, two days before the team dinner, I felt a cold coming on strong. I took A.irborne
faithfully and actually felt the cold symptoms going away. By Wednesday I was symptom free and off the A.irborne. Whoopie!
Thursday, I was sick. Sore throat, coughing, congestion - just plain ick. I made it through my two days of teaching last week hopped up on D.ayquil and sugar. When I'm sick I don't want to be touched or looked at. Just leave. me. alone. Hokie Hubby is really good about this. He brings me tissues and sleeps in the spare bedroom. I couldn't ask for more.
Finally, yesterday, I was starting to feel better. Minimal hacking and blowing my nose makes me happy. Last night, after I made chicken enchiladas
I told Hokie Hubby that I wanted some ice cream. Off we went to the store! On our way home HH stated he was tired and would probably come home and take a bath.Me (jokingly):
Maybe it's mono, honey.HH (rolling his eyes):
No, it's not mono.Me (alluding to the lack of...uh...action lately)
: You're right, there's no way you could have caught mono in the past few weeks.HH
: Gee thanks! The first thing I did when I got home was give you a kiss.Me:
Yeah! On the cheek! That's not how mono is spread.HH:
Well, I did sleep in bed last night...maybe I caught it from the runoffs of your drool pillow.Me:
