Yesterday, horrible migraine (weather related likely) and went home from work. Slept all day, felt better. Went to hug DH when he got home and ripped off the ginormous blister! GROSS! Polysporin but no bandage big enough in the house. LOTS of polysporin. Went to work, found BIG bandage and more polysporin.

Later today, hand aching...some swelling but no redness or heat. Went to doc for meds. He wrapped the crap out of my hand. I could have been a mummy! LOL. Taking antibiotics now, but took off giant bandage and put a big stick on bandaid on it.

Whine! Whimper! My arm hurts! Stupid infection. If this gets worse and messes up my trip I'm going to be über ticked off.
Oh dear, Alix! No advice here, other than keep it wrapped on the plane and buy stock in polysporin!

Yes, it does! I may get some of that for myself. Since it's Friday, of course I'm starting to feel congested and have a sore throat. Yea weekend!

I just added poopy to the dictionary on my laptop...it kept saying it was misspelled.

Hahahaha! You guys always make me feel better! Don't forget the garlic PF. I had garlicky hummus for dinner. Garlic and alcohol will kill anything!

I had guacamole and chips for dinner...it was plenty garlicky...keeps the vampires away!

Yum...I think I will roast some garlic and make a soup out of it. That should help me enjoy the weekend and keep Shrek and the cats away.

Things are heating up at school! Two more students (one non-reader/can't count to 10/runner). Technology that doesn't work all week when I really need it. The topper is that the heat in the building was turned on. My room is right over the boiler room. I've had 3 days of 85 degree temperature in my room WITH 3 large windows wide open & 45-60 degree temps outside and a fan running. I'm told to expect the temp to stay that way all winter. So when I'm at my desk I've got a cold draft at my back but hot 2 feet away. My chapstick in my purse on the floor melted into a soft goo. I went home each night with dried out eyes, a headache, chapped lips and needing my inhaler. Don't know if I'm going to be able to tolerate the heat. Only good thing this week is my supervisor is trying to get me another full time paraprofessional because of my new boy who runs added to the rest of my mix.

Oh, no, Cindercat. Sure seems like SpEd staff are treated like second class citizens at times, doesn't it?
