    Ugh. I took a nap this afternoon (like usual...) but I feel worse than when i went down. I have the throat tickle, a runny nose, and I've been hit with the sleepy truck.

    I hate that don't you? I took yesterday morning off to get everything in order from the Odessa connection, then really didn't feel good but went anyway because I hate to be out of my classroom,,,, so they sent home anyway! I felt awful today and went too,, I need to learn to call in darn it, I have enough leave time to take a year off!! We don't have a leave bank to donate to either so I can't give it to anyone who might need it
    CALL IN!! Don't be me!

    I think I have a month of sick days saved up... I don't ever call in sick, either. It's too much work to be gone when one is a teacher. [​IMG]

    FrenchHen, I hope you feel better soon! [​IMG]

    With five preps for five periods...calling in is almost as much work as going...but at least one can sleep in.

    My thing is this: If you are barfing call in, if you can't get off the pot call in, if you are hacking up a lung and there is green stuff call in. Other than that, I can hang. I don't like to share the germs becaues when I feel better they will all be out and I have to do their work!

    I called in sick.

    My muscles ache all over and I'm tired.
