Last week Bennett was on school camp, oh joy! It was a very pleasant and quiet week. I really wish I had made the most of the quietness because this week has been hellish. Not long after I picked Bennett up from the ferry he told me he had a sore throat, little did I know this was the a sign from the hellish week ahead, telling me to watch out (or possibly laughing a Nelson style HAHA at me, Nelson from The Simpsons that is) Either way I did not predict the doom.
Bennett was terribly sick on Monday night, keeping me awake all night with his wheezing and coughing, so he had the day off on Tuesday. I on the other hand, although exhausted from lack of sleep. soldiered on at school. Okay, this is mostly cause I hate being nurse and have very little sympathy for sick people, even to my darling son. So in fact I would MUCH rather be at school, therefore probably not technically soldiering.
However, 5th period at school I started to feel a little scratch in the back of my throat (insert another Nelson laugh here) Yes Karma, you are a bitch. By 4pm I was feeling really unwell and the rest they say is a snotty, coughing, crying, blubbering history. I think I may have a case of the man flu.
I have now been sick since Tuesday and really have been soldiering on. At school every day because my Drama students are way too close to performance to be left. I even have weekend rehearsals on Sunday to top off the pain. This is when I feel like I am not paid enough.
