… Got home from school Tuesday night and was in bed by 5:30. Had a small case of the stomach flu or something. No fever, but all my joints ached and was having gastro-intestinal issues. About 1:30 in the morning I knew I wasn’t going to school Wednesday, so I called our district’s automated call-in-sick number. Now how many of you think I was done at this point. Ok, you, with your hand up, obviously you’re not a teacher. If you were, you’d know that I still had to get up at 6, drag my carcass into school and get lesson plans ready for the day. By 7:30 I was home in bed again and, other than bathroom runs, didn’t get out of bed until 5:30 am on Thursday. Wednesday? Did it really exist? Not for me, but that’s ok, I’m back to (ahem) normal.
