Catching Up

Holy Cow!  It's been a week since my last post!  Here's why. . .
Let me just say,

That sinus infection just wouldn't go away and decided it wanted some bronchitis to keep it company.  I have been down and out the past week.  I ended up taking two sick days.  I probably should have stayed out the week, but one day was a professional development day in my district so I was able to just sit in a chair and veg.  Not a comment on the workshop, just that I didn't have to be the ring leader that day! 

On the other two days, I did drag myself to school. It's crunch time! We have two weeks before winter recess and in that time my friends need to finish a novel study, a unit in math, and a research report.  If I had taken the entire week off we wouldn't even be close to finishing.  Thankfully, my friends could see I wasn't anywhere near 100% and were extra cooperative.  Lots of brownie points were given!

On a personal note, not one Christmas gift has been purchased yet. 
I was too sick and tired to even shop online.  I'm pretty near a panic state at this point!

As for you my blog friends, I apologize for the absence but it was all I could do to get through the day these past two weeks.  However, I do have a fun post planned for Tuesday.  So, if you are feeling it, stop by!  And, thanks for sticking with me despite my post-less week. :-)


  1. Hi Nancy:
    I'm glad you took a little time to rest (although you probably need more--it's one of the few ways to get ahead of the game when you're sick!)
    I always look forward to your posts, so I'll be checking back in.
    Sending you get well wishes and holiday wishes too...
