So how come no one tells you in college that one of the not so special rewards of teaching kindergarten is all the germs you come into contact with on a daily basis? I have half a mind to call my alma mater and ask them why Germ Avoidance 101 was never offered!
Try as we might, sometimes all the combat-style handwashing, sanitizer squirting, lysol wiping and window opening just isn't a match for the misdirected sneezes and uncovered coughs that we, as teachers, are the not-so-lucky recipients of.
I've been trying to shake this cold for a week and it's starting to get the best of me.
Lack of sleep + overworking myself + hardly ever getting to see mmb because we are both working our tushies off about 19 hours a day(and we live together, btw...) + this darn cold = a wee bit of crankiness.
So what to do about this? (Besides be grateful it's not swine flu.)
Well, Dr. Boyfriend has been pushing the alka seltzer cold meds on me.
And I am pretty sure if I happened to get lost anytime soon I could find my way back by way of a trail of cough drop wrappers.
Oh and tea...lots and lots of tea (this, I consider an added bonus...vanilla almond, yum!)
I wish I could say I can rest a lot this weekend, but alas...it's a class weekend so I will be trying to cram my stuffed up head with all sorts of new knowledge while silently begrudging the fact that when Piaget was doing all of his play skills transfer studies that he never thought to take the time to develop some magical germ transfer avoidance studies. Sigh...woe is me.
Perhaps I need a new project to get me over this grumptasticness. I'm thinking of going digital...as in scrapbooking that is. I've wanted to try it for awhile, but am just not sure how to go about it.
Any advice for a paper girl looking to go hybrid?
I promise I won't rawr at you.
