A terrible Valentine's Day

When I left for school this morning I had tons of plans for today, including some good blog posts. Unfortunately, I got a twinge in my back this morning sometime before I left for work. Thursday is my longest class day, and when I got out of my first class I coughed and had to stop walking because of the sudden pain in my back. I tried stretching and relaxing while I sat but it didn't work. I also woke up with post-nasal drip (gross) and during my second class of the day I felt myself getting sick as I sat there uncomfortably trying not to move the wrong way. By the end of my third class (and these are all long classes) I was miserable. I biked to school but was worried about getting home if I couldn't twist so I got a ride home with a classmate (who asked me which Wal-Mart I go to right after I told her we don't have a car?).

Jon has been sick since Tuesday, and I've definitely gotten what he has. Usually we don't get each others illnesses so I wasn't particularly concerned. He made dinner and we spent 3 hours on the couch being pathetic and now we are being pathetic in bed. I really hate being sick, and I know I'm really whiny about it too. We don't own a thermometer so I don't know what my temperature is but I feel like I have a fever. I'm going to drag myself to school tomorrow to teach and warn my students about my condition. Maybe it will make me feel better to do something as long as I'm careful about my back. I might take a cab tomorrow.

I hope you guys feel better! That's awful that you are both so miserably sick. Maybe you should take a day off and just rest. Feel better!

I hope you feel better. At least now it's the weekend so you can rest.

Hope you are feeling better. I can't believe people still shop at Walmarts...
