I have honestly been catapulted back into the health status of a first year teacher. I can just about count the number of times on one hand that I have gone for a stretch of 2 weeks being completely healthy since August. Now, my friends, that is not just sad, but it is seriously pathetic.
I feel pathetic.
I feel like crap all the time and my sweet, sweet husband is so patient and caring. My days at work push me to my limits of exhaustion and when I come home, he is always smiling and willing to let me put my feet up to catch my breath. I am so lucky to have him to take care of me.
Thursday night was a particularly difficult night with Sofia -- up for nearly 3 hours and I was at the height of one the worst colds I've had all year. I missed Chris terribly. Having him gone during the night to work is hard! I peeled myself out of bed on Friday morning and shuffled into work. Sitting at my desk, everything was in a haze and I actually started to get teary because I was sooooooo frustrated. Not a moment later did Chris walk through my office door with a bag full of get well goodies! Tea, mac 'n cheese, clementines and my favorite, whoppers, all popped out of the grocery bag he was carrying. After working all night, there he was with a smile and pep in his step. I couldn't believe he was standing there!
It's now Monday night and I still have some serious getting better to do. But, with those bright blue eyes and that pearly white smile to think about, getting better fast is going to be a much easier task to do this time. :)
