Everyone is sick!

I think everyone I know is sick, or has been sick recently, with either the flu or some kind of cold - almost all my students have cold sores! uuuggghh! I have taken to using antiviral cream on my lips as a preventitive measure. It's bad enough being sick - but if you have cold sores it makes it just that much worse.

And being sick seems like a worldwide thing, because my family in the US are all suffering too. Is this a winter for colds, or what? I don't ever remember it being this bad.

I think I'm coming down with something. I came home from work and took 'night nurse' and went to bed. - but 'night nurse' makes me woosy for about 12 hours. When the alarm clock went off I could barely make it out of bed to wake up the kids for school. If was so dizzy and weak - my legs were wobbling all over the place! I turned on the lights in the girls room and said, 'Get up! This is the first and last time I am going to tell you! I'm going back to bed because I'm not well!' - then I did the same thing in the boys room. I usually have to go in and tell them to get up about ten times before they finally get out of bed.

I went back to bed and slept until 10 o'clock. Nora missed school because she didn't get out of bed - but she had tidied the house so it was ok. After a few cups of coffee I feel a bit better - the 'night nurse' finally wore off. My throat feels a bit scratchy and I feel achey, but I will pull myself together and get through the day.

I'm not sure if I should dose myself with 'night nurse' again tonite. It will depend on how I feel.


  1. Mom has had a fever for about 3 days. She finally went to the doctor yesterday and is now on antibiotics. She is doing a little better now. I had whatever plague mother has now the weekend before last. Chills, Fever, (tylenol), then sweat...and then the cycle starts over. It was very strange.... I hope you feel better. XOXO, Sister Kristen

  2. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well Terri. Hope it was just a 24 hour bug. I read the account of your day to Mom. She laughed when she heard the part about it being OK Nora missed school because she tidied the house. Cousin Kathy
