Time to Relax

I feel that sometimes, when you don't take care of yourself and get some extra rest, your body tells you to get that rest.  That was what my body was telling last week.  It started of subtle, and I didn't listen.  But eventually, I had to no choice. 

It started on Wednesday.  I became a bit stuffy, but kept on going.  Thursday, I was more stuffy and beginning to feel bad.  But I kept on going.  I worked and then went to our team Christmas party.  I came home and went to bed after that, but didn't sleep well because of the aches and pains and fluctuating body temperature.  I woke up Friday feeling awful, but I did what most every teacher does, I went to school.  Who was going to sub a week before Christmas?  The kids are crazy!  Friday night, I was done.  I was finally ready to listen to my body.  I put on my PJs and crawled into bed at 4:00.  I was running a low fever.  My whole body hurt.  I couldn't breathe.   Saturday was spent in my PJs on the couch ALL day and night.  I can't remember the last time I got to do this.  Today, I'm feeling somewhat better.  I spent the day on the couch until about 4:00 when I got up and ran a couple errands.  Now, I am completely exhausted.  It will be an early night in hopes of allowing my body to get enough rest to make it through the next 3 days of work and then through the holiday events. 

So, that was my weekend.  What'd you do this weekend?

I hope you are feeling better now. Its awesome that you stuck it out for your kids and kept working. You would be surprised how many teachers took days off from school the last week. I worked 3 of the 5 days..the last day was canceled due to too much snow. ha! Imagine that! I hope you have a good winter break!
