Today has been long. Oh, so very long. I’m back to counting calories as our cruise is quickly approaching. That always makes things a little bit harder, but I haven’t gnawed off a table leg or anything yet.
To make things even more challenging I’ve been fighting a cold/sinus thing for almost 2 weeks now. I give up. I called the doctor, but the soonest they can see me is not for another 5 days. Advil is my best friend. Coming in at a close second is my bed.
Even though I only work part time, it’s wearing me out. Today was even more trying. I was frantically finishing assessments this morning. Then one of my students threw up right at my feet today, just as I was starting our numbers lesson. Thanks to a quick response from the office, he was taken care of, but the area behind my desk is…ick. I sprayed my shoes and socks and pant legs with enough Lysol to fumigate the building, and went and finished the lesson. Needless to say, my appetite took a nosedive today. Which worked out really well for the whole counting calorie thing.
I have parent/teacher conferences the next 2 days and I had to finish report cards tonight. Since my throbbing head isn’t letting up, my dear husband ordered pizza for dinner. And thanks to my inability to eat lunch, I had enough calories left to be able to eat 3 slices. I am now happy 🙂
