Here it is, five o'clock in the morning. I am sooooo tired but I can't sleep.
I just looked at myself in the mirror.
I look bad.
Red eyes and oozy, crusty stuff.
My husband calls me the "googler" so I checked out my symptoms on-line for confirmation of my layman diagnosis. It is indeed conjunctivitis, or pink eye. There are several cases of this going through my school .Apparently I am highly contagious and therefore should not go to work for a few days.
I have sent off a bunch of emails trying to delegate some tasks that need immediate attention. Now I am just lying on my couch feeling sorry for myself. June in an elementary school is a crazy, busy time. I can't afford to miss any time. Lazing on the couch watching Oprah can be squeezed in on one of those dreary November or February days, but not JUNE!!!!
I am trying to add a little picture with each blog entry so I googled "Pink Eye" images. There were some really gross pictures there. Made my case look relatively minor. For the sake of the stomachs of anyone reading this............is anyone reading this?...................I chose this picture which is apparently a promotional pic of a movie called "Pink Eye.............He's real and he's coming for you!" I wonder if it was nominated for any Oscars?
Enough whining. I have suddenly been given 2 days or so of me time. I can either wallow in self-pity or I can lie on my couch and enjoy watching trashy TV. What's with the Jon and Kate + 8 thing I have been hearing about? What is a "Speidy"? This is a sudden opportunity to catch up on the news!
