First blog post. CHECK!
Start before you’re ready. CHECK!
Sick today. Ugh. Check….
Yesterday was all sneezing, itchy eyes, and itchy throat. I thought it was my wondrous Texas allergies rocking my day.
Then evening rolls around. Itchy, scratchy throat.
Wait. Is it sore now??
12 am. Yep. Definitely sore throat.
This morning I didn’t walk Ranger (our little furry rescue), and he followed me around with his award-winning (in my book) puppy eyes. Oatmeal with bananas sounded good. It was. And I canceled all classes for the day. (As homeschool principal, I can do that.) Little D can read her library book because her teacher is taking a sick day.
Also, I’ll have to figure out something for tonight. Our family has reservations for dinner at our nearby 2-star dining table, but I think the chef may be calling in sick, too.
(And if you’re wondering, I sent the housekeeper home, too. She was looking pretty low on energy. Fortunately for me, my hubby and Little D are awesome.)
Hopefully, I won’t have continuing staffing issues tomorrow. This ship doesn’t sail itself, as you all well know. But a day or two of drifting won’t sink us.
A good book and cup of tea will fix most anything.
I think I’ll just check in again with Kate Daniels (my most fave book series EVERRR!) and figure out how many pillows it takes to make an award-worthy bed-cliner.
