Today --- (cough cough)
   I should have stayed (achooo)  in BED! (sniffle)
Not sure (hack, cough, hack) how I made it through (sniffle)
                      the day
Not sure (gasp, wheeze) how I got my (achooooooo) 
                  daughter or son to (cough) school – did I really (snif) DRIVE?
(Sniffle sniffle moan groan)
Not sure what, (hack, cough) if anything, I taught
                                 Toooooo sick to post today (ahem ahem sniffle achooo)
         too sick to do anything else (moan cough)
                                                     but crawl in bed (ahem hack ahem)
                 and darn it all (ACHOOOOO sniffle)……
Tonight my SPRING BREAK starts……..(moan, gasp, wheeze

Quote of the day:  A good laugh and a long sleep are the best

  1. Clever! I've been under the weather lately too. amazing how much we can get done, even when we don't feel good. Get well soon!

  2. This sounds like an illustrated children's book, maybe you have an idea on your hands. Oh, and feel better.

  3. Get well and enjoy your break. I feel the same way. I actually did take today off and it felt great!

  4. It's amazing how we are so used to 'doing' that we can push ourselves through the day despite feeling under the weather. I hope you can get rid of that cold fast, so that you can fully enjoy your break!

  5. Hope you feel better soon! Pretty clever post for feeling crummy!

  6. Sneezing and coughing is not the best way to start a spring break. I hope that you will fell better soon and can enjoy your time off.

  7. Love the old Irish quote but hate that you are sick to start a much needed break (I'm sure)!

  8. Ah, I remember you from last year. I remember enjoying your posts. Thanks for your comments. Like your onomatopeia. Hopefully, the sleep will get you going on your vacation. I have to have a laugh a day or I wither. "Stone" is a friendlier word. I feel I am preparing for something this year and being a rock might help. I hope I'm wrong.

  9. I hope you are feeling better. I got sick on Thursday, and now on Monday I'm facing conferences and continued cough cough.
