Fugitive Polygamist Sect Leader Arrested in Las Vegas

In other news, I called in sick to work today -- my first paid sick day, ever. My throat was scratchy and my ears plugged up yesterday, and it only got worse overnight. I woke up around 6:05, and you have to call into the automated absence system by 6:15, so I had to make a quick decision. Of course, I still had to go in quick-like to drop off sub plans and make some copies, but I was out of there and back in bed by about 7:30. Slept til around 11:00, been drinking lots of fluids, and mom is making me chicken soup for dinner. I don't have a fever, so I think it's just a cold -- which in a way sucks because I can't just go hit up the doc for some antibiotics to make it all better. I have to get better the old-fashioned way. Come on, immune system, get with it!
  • Current Mood: sick sick
Oh yeah. I was sick so often when I worked at the day care, it was nuts. But I think it's a *little* better with older kids... the little ones don't have quite a good a handle on hygiene. Well, not that 100% of the older ones do, but I at least feel like my chances are better ;)
Hope you feel better. And build up that immune system. :)
If you're going to teach, you better start taking that stuff a teacher came up with, "Air Borne" (or airborn, or however it's spelled).
Yeah, you're probably right. My body never seems to respond as advertised to that kind of stuff, though; taking regular daily vitamins inevitably makes me sick, so I just don't take them.
