Feeling loopy. I managed to catch a flu bug. I was doing so well staying healthy through all the stress of our choir concert, MM's birthday and Sinterklaas, etc....then Tuesday my voice felt a bit forced and I went to choir and lipsynced my way through it until we did the one song we don't have quite down yet. We have a show next week that will be on the radio and the 2nd hour will be videoed and put on youtube, so we need to be good and people are not listening to the music. So I feel like I have to shout the right notes (I'm the only sight reader) and I overdid it and now I have almost no voice. But I felt fine until yesterday. Now I'm headachy and have a slight fever and I'm loopy. I also have "fever dreams"...you know...the really vivid wacky dreams you get when you are sick? I had a dream in which I was someone totally different and it was SO heartbreaking because I was in love with my best friend, who was in love with me, but I didn't know it and he didn't know I was in love with him. He was a musician and he was offered a dream opportunity to go on tour with a famous band and I told him he HAD to do it, he couldn't pass it up. Only he thought I saw that he was in love with me and was trying to get him away from me for a while so I didn't have to deal with it. So he told me he was never coming back, and I thought it was because HE didn't want to be with me and thought I was too obsessed with him. I had a son who was just a toddler and my best friend had always been a father figure to my son. My friend didn't want to come back and find the woman he loved married to some loser who was being a crappy father to the boy HE considered HIS son, even though he wasn't. But I didn't KNOW that was why he didn't want to come back...I had no idea how he felt. We had a very...New Moon-ish farewell scene. It was really such a sad sad dream. When I woke up, it felt like I had really been left by my best friend and it was really painfully real.
Lynne, is it a good thing to have some time off? Or would you rather be working more? I saw on FB about Little Man's report. That is fantastic!! We don't get reports until February or March! But I guess your school year is different, right? You now have summer break?
Good luck with your edits!! I'm anxiously awaiting the release!
Sarah, I know!! Christmas seems to be rushing in this year! Next week is the kids' Christmas dinner at school. I need to make Pizza...I haven't made it in YEARS. I am going to make little pizzas in Christmas shapes like trees and snowmen and gingerbread men, etc. This year, they made a menu and each parent got to pick one of the ornaments on the tree and make the dish that's written on that ornament. So I have Pizza for MM's and Fudge for Bug's, but Bug says they will put everything in the hall for all the kids to eat anyway, so I'm really making them for both classes.
Sean, stay warm!
