Coming back to life...

The computer and I are both coming back to life! After a couple of weeks of being somewhat 'on top of things', I was hit by a mac truck of a cold about a week ago. I had been prepping for a big classroom visit , preparing for a Tahoe trip and a sub. I was exhausted Friday afternoon as we drove up north, and the sore throat that had been dancing around me for awhile latched on. I lost my voice and was miserable all week. Finally got some antibiotics (bronchitis) and am *starting* to get my groove back. Meanwhile, my buddy, miss computer, needs a new card or somethingorother. Basically the screen shakes like a Halloween nightmare every other time I turn it on. Tonight, she's with me, so I thought I'd post this pic of me and Miss P at the river watching the 'salmon race.'

In between me trying to survive, we are having fun with Halloween. Miss P and I read the Rainbow Fairies: Trixie, the Halloween Fairy, and we just erected a ghost on our porch. P is constantly trying to spook up the house. She is as into the holidays as me. E is excitedly following the SF Giants. Tomorrow night P spends the night at her Grandparent's house as there is no school Monday, but meetings for the teachers. (We teachers refer to this as a 'no contact' day). I'm hoping E and I can catch a showing of Waiting for Superman, Sunday night, although I'm a little fearful that it will frustrate me.

Can't wait to get back to 100%!

sore throat is not a lot of fun its just uncomfortable and difficult to swallow.

usually, i would take the Nim Jiom Cough Syrup (www.geocities.jp/ninjiom_hong_kong/index_e.htm ) which has a thick consistency formulation. it coats the throat and includes herbs that are particularly good for that application.

i hope it works on you as well.
