I Take it Back

My cold is not gone, after all. It's turned into the long cold that a bunch of second graders have. Now I know where I got it. Three were out last week, three this week. Plus another girl out for a funeral, and a boy for a hernia operation.

The poor little girl, she was crying on the playground the other day and told me, "they're going to put my aunt's ashes in the ground tomorrow." So I just hugged her. What can you say? I asked her if she had a happy time with her aunt she could remember. She loved the smell of her aunt's cookies.

So between that and the miners' rescue and the sneezes, I have been pretty drippy this week.

How has your week been?

I'm so sorry you have a cold.

We have a barfy child here, the second time since school started. Luckily, this one seems mild. Still, it seems early in the year for this nonsense.

It's also been a stressful week, as the husband's mother died and he's headed to the funeral tomorrow.

I'm hopeful that next week will be better.

I am behind on my work project and I am just waiting for my manager to ask me about it and I'll have to explain I'm not done. I've never missed a deadline!!

My son is sick with a nasty cold - and he has a music concert tomorrow and a musical that starts on Saturday (so 3 hr rehearsals every day).
Miserable week!!!
