My allergies are horrible this spring! I can't ever remember them being this bad...well, maybe I can...but that was because of a houseful of cats...and my eyes nearly swelled shut. But this past week, I've had trouble breathing, I've been getting winded just going up the stairs, chest tightness, lots of coughing, scratchy throat, slightly hoarse voice...and I've used up quite a bit of tissues. I hate blowing my nose in front of people and I've had to do that ALL in front of my students. Bleh! Oh, and the sneezing fits have been just awful! I think the kids are counting to see how many I can do in a row.
Poor girl from the other fourth grade class was in the hospital with pneumonia. This stuff is not fun. I'm glad we only have three weeks left.
My kids are to funny. This morning, while ordering lunch, one of my girls asked if she could order a big city...opps...cereal (we were talking about the tornado that touched down last night and the cities it affected. Not too long ago, I had another student answer a geometry question for me. I couldn't help but laugh when she answered. I asked to name an angle that was on the board (right angle) and she said left angle. lol!
Anyway...I have a busy Saturday ahead of me. I've got to clean the college building, possibly attend a scrapbook workshop, and go to the Mother-Daughter Banquet. I wasn't going to attend the banquet, but someone just asked me Wednesday night. These banquets are odd when you have no family attending them. Makes me feel out of place.
