I can't seem to quite shake this head cold

and it's pissing me off. It's not bad enough that I can't go on with my life and do the things I want to do. But it is just enough to be really annoying. I'm going to workout in a few minutes then I have to go to the Pet Expo - the parrot club has a booth there. I'm hoping to get out of there by 1 or so.... I do not want to stay until 4 when they close..... This little nagging head cold is also making me grumpy...Hubby was looking for something the other day and instead of standing up and turning to face me to ask a question, he asks the question with his head stuck in the closet. All I could hear was mmf drawer.....What?? He repeated it.....WHAT?? Finally he turns and looks at me and says could I check in the drawer...Ugh!!! People can be so freaking annoying!!!!!

I guess that's it. I'm a little stuffy and cranky and not really in the mood for the Pet Expo.......

It's been a few days...

Things are just really busy and there is no time to blog. We are rapidly approaching the end of the semester at school and everything needs to be done. Now... It's getting crazy. One good thing, I sign my new contract tomorrow so I have a job next year. Guess I won't be starting that job search I was thinking of. I will be gainfully employed for another year.. Woo Hoo....

This year was a huge learning curve for me. I took all these classes that tell you what it's going to be like when you teach and you know what?? All that information means absolutely nothing until you are standing in front of a group of teenagers who are waiting for you to be brilliant. As we are nearing the end of the year I can now see so many mistakes I made. But, one of the good things about teaching is, I get a do-over. Next August a whole new group of kids will walk in and I get to start all over again. It's fabulous. But this blog is not about teaching, it's about my health and f…

What exactly happened???

Things were going along pretty well for a while there... I felt like I was really starting to get a handle on eating and working out and then I got sick. I was sick for a few days but then started to get back to my normal routine. I can't honestly say that I ever recovered completely from being sick because I never reached a point where I felt fantastic - which is how I usually feel after I'm sick. But for 2 weeks I chugged along and felt okay. Last week I started to feel exhausted. Friday was horrible, I blew up at two classes... Saturday the school had a fair and I had to work all day, 8 until 6:45 - that was pretty miserable. I came home Saturday night, felt like real crap and was in bed by 8:30. Yesterday I spent most of the day in bed. I had some breakfast and took a nap. Ate lunch and took a nap. By the afternoon I was starting to feel human again. I slept pretty good last night and this morning I feel okay. Not 100% but maybe about 75%. I have the day off beca…
