2 weeks of being sick, a new student and a great neighbor

I've been sick for 2 weeks!  Yes, 2 WEEKS!  It started last Tuesday when I had what I thought was just a cold.  I stayed home with my baby girl in hopes that I would be able to just relax and be better.  Well I woke up Wednesday and attempted school.  I only stayed for 1/2 of the day and slept that afternoon.  I felt much better Wednesday night.  But Thursday I woke up with a fever.  I went to school, thinking that I'd be fine, but didn't even make it 10 minutes.  The diagnosis...Strep Throat.  The good think is that strep goes away within 24 hours on meds but I was still contagious on Friday, so a doctors note meant no school for me.  Thank goodness the meds kicked in because I had a trip to Disneyland for my daughters first birthday that weekend.

Monday was a Holiday and Tuesday was my babies first birthday so I had already pre-planned to have that day off.  Wednesday I had a district training on the CCS.  I was pretty excited to get back to work on Thursday, but in the middle of the night I woke up with a nasty stomach virus and fever.  So here I am, 2 weeks of not being at school!

Luckily I work with the best group of people!  Especially my neighbor, Jill.  I could not have dealt with all this without her.  She has basically given the subs everything that they have needed from copies to instructions.  The kids, I've heard, have started to get a little anxious and who can blame them!  Oh yeah, I also got a new student last Friday that I haven't even met yet!!!  I'm a little scared what to expect on Monday when I get there!

Please keep your fingers crossed for me...
