Just One of those Days

Have you ever had one of those days?? Today was one of those days for me. I have been fighting getting sick since Sunday. My voice sounds like I swallowed a frog. I would love to take a day and try to recuperate but my dept. chair has said that I have been absent too much hence I have been going into work and croaking to my students as I teach. Today I lectured all day which was not good for my throat. My students were not that cooperative at being quiet for me which made me really sound like a frog by the end of the day. My school computer decided to not like me today. So I spent my entire planning period dealing with computer problems. Yuck. No lesson planning done for me today. Arghh. After school I was still dealing with computer issues. Hence still no lesson planning done. Naomi got off the bus and was extremely emotional and clingy. (She fell at school and scraped her elbow and leg really bad.) After Naomi finished her homework, we headed home. I looked over my stuff for cub scouts and then decided to leave early to pick up some supplies. Naomi was still emotional so I decided to bring her with me. We headed out the door around 5:30 to get the supplies I needed. Traffic was horrendous and I ended up being about 5 minutes late to scouts. Naomi and I had missed dinner so we stopped to get something at the drive-thru on the way home. Naomi spilled her apple juice all over herself. More melt-down ensued. We finally got home and Naomi broke down into tears because she still has trouble remembering her phone number and address and she is the only one in class that has not gotten a sticker for learning them. (Kaylee was still wide awake. She had at least 2 naps today.) Naomi finally finished her meal and off to bed we went. Naomi wanted me to fix her scrapes and more waterworks commenced because the spray hurt she said. While I was tending Naomi, Kaylee spilled water all over their bedroom floor. Finally got Naomi all bandaged up and left for a minute to go to the restroom. Naomi started crying again because she thought people would make fun of her scrapes. And yes, Kaylee was still bouncing off the walls. CALGON PLEASE TAKE ME AWAY!!!! (All I want to do is soak in a hot tub and go to sleep.)

Oh what a day! I hope you begin to feel better soon. I'm sorry that you can't just take a week off and relax while reading 3 or 4 great books! Good luck!
