Misery Loves Company

Those sweet little munchkins with the heavenly little smiles, the squeaky little voices, great big hearts, and the tiny little hands...MADE ME SICK. I started getting the sore throat on Thursday. I began combatting it immediately...which may have only put off the agony until today. Last night, while I was tired, I could not get to sleep until roughly 2:38am. I woke bright and early at 5:43am because I could no longer breathe through my nose. I tried to remedy it with cold meds, but it was no use. I got a little sleep this afternoon. I feel like I was splitting firewood all day. In fact, I sat on my ass. For some reason, though, that does not keep every single muscle in my body from aching. Oh, I am going to kill the little bastard bicycle pump elf that has been raising the pressure in my head when I wasn't looking.

I think I may have accidentally left some of my cold/flu laying around and Cora might have accidentally stepped in it...Hmmm, that visualization is not quite right...that makes it sound like I barfed. I did not. I am just saying that Cora took some of my left over cold and seems to be miserable, too! We have been two pathetic humans today. At least I have had company.

We had a nice roast for dinner. Not quite gourmet, but certainly yummy! Which reminds me. We stopped for lunch yesterday at this German place in a basement. We had some German fare that I don't think I had ever had before. Brats, sour kraut, German potato salad, and some other nice goodies. Oh, yeah, and the beer.

I work at the elementary tomorrow...that is one hour late start on Monday...which means I don't have to be there until 9:15!! Now, let's all hope I get some sleep to match. I should probably spray the little angels with Lysol when they come in...

Well, you know what they say misery loves company so I thought I would join you. Hope we are both feeling better tomorrow.

That is one of the fringe benefits of working with the youth. It makes me wonder why the little ones have to be so susceptible to illness. They never hurt anybody.
I sure hope you will both feel better tomorrow.

Hmmm, If you read my blog about the miracle chesse I had on Saturday and my sore throat. I totally suggest that to you. Or gargle with salt (don't you hate it when people tell you that?)
