Yesterday, I kept telling myself "I am not sick" despite the fever, chills, hot flashes, etc. I fought my way through it because there was no way I could stay home from work. The kids were nutty because it was the first day back from break, but I survived it.
This morning, however, I lost the battle. I had to give in and get a substitute. Thankfully, a wonderful, retired teacher agreed to go in for me; otherwise, I would have gone and been miserable. I can't leave my kids with just anyone.
So, I've spent the day at home. I'm feeling better, and I'm planning on working tomorrow. Heck, I will work tomorrow even if this plague comes back with a vengeance. There's no way I can miss two days. Even my best kids will turn bad without some consistency.
I hope everyone is having a good Tuesday.
