Snow Day!! Snow Day!!

Want to see what got us out of school today? You'll laugh. I know my friends up north are laughing. And rolling their eyes. LOL

Yep, that little bit of snow got us out of school today. I'm not complaining though. It means that I don't have to leave work early or Michael doesn't have to go in late since Joshua still can't go back to school. Works for me. ;-)

Well I'm feeling better so far today....

I've pumped myself full of Vitamin C and Airborne. I am refusing to let this thing get to me. I've got too much going on. Michael, however, is not winning his battle. He didn't feel well last night and he woke up this morning with a fever. I've given him medicine and sent him back to bed. I imagine he is going to go to work regardless of how he feels, but all he is going to do is be miserable and spread the flu. I can almost guarantee that is what he has. I mean after both kids were sick with it. Ya know.

No! No! No! No! No!

Back hurts.
Head hurts.
Throat hurts.
Stuffy nose.
Itchy eyes.
No fever (That's good.........right?)

I CANNOT be getting sick. I don't need to miss anymore days of work AND I'm only 10 days from flying to Boston to see Bon Jovi. I refuse to be getting sick!! Denial will keep me well. I'm sure of it.

I am back!!

Did ya miss me? Or did you even realize I was gone? The laptop was delivered today complete with a new keyboard. It's nice to have it back and be online again. I sure missed blogging and my message boards. I'm sure my loyal readers (all 3 of them) will be glad to get some new stuff up here.

All that said.........not much going on around here. Both kids have been sick. Ari had what I think (I say "think" because we got her into the doctor 4 days after she started getting sick since we were in Florida when it started and she tested negative for the flu) was the flu last week. We had 8 days of fevers of 103+. We were fever free in the house for less than 24 hours and Joshua woke up with on Saturday with a fever of 103.4. Yeah I was not happy. I got him into the doctor that morning and he tested positive for the flu. The doctor prescribed Tamiflu and boy does it work. He hasn't run much of a fever since he started taking it. Heck on Sunday he didn't have one at all. He had a low grade one today, but right now he doesn't have one and he is running around like his normal crazy self. They want him out of school for the entire week though. Umm, do you know how hard that is? Both of us work so we are taking turns either going in late or leaving early.

I'm in the process of filling out teaching applications for Florida and emailing principals. I hope to get positive responses from the emails in the next couple days. I wanted to go down during spring break, but mom is going to be on a cruise for most of my break and so I wouldn't have anywhere to stay. I'll see what happens. If I get positive responses from the principals I've contacted then I'll end up going down for a few days anyway.

I am just under 2 weeks from flying up to Boston to go to a Bon Jovi concert. I'm very excited!! I'll be sure to post pictures when I get home.

We just made a short trip to Florida on President's Day weekend. My aunt and uncle celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and we had a surprise party for them. It was a blast. I love getting together with my family. It is never boring. I'll post some pictures of that a little later. I have to upload them from the camera. I was a little upset. I bought a new camera for me and I forgot to take extra batteries. Mine died in the middle of the party so I didn't get as many pictures as I wanted. Oh well, I'm sure I'll be able to get other family members to email me some.

This school year is flying by. I can't believe we are 2 weeks away from spring break. Then only 9 more weeks until summer vacation. I'm loving kindergarten. It took awhile for me to realize it though. It's hard. Very hard. I've taught 1st, 3rd, and 4th grades. Kindergarten is by far the most difficult. I love those little guys though.

So, how have y'all been?
