Simple Sunday – A Wish for Soup

I was home sick from work Friday.

This means that on Thursday night I had to: put in for a guest teacher, write sub plans (giving as clear of directions as I could in my feverish state on all the subjects, transitions, small groups, spelling test and reading test procedures, and the passing out of the various homework components for the following week), and email a co-worker with my plans so that she could print them off.  I also had not planned on being out so, while the white board had the schedule already set for the next day, I had not put out the homework and other various papers that needed to go home.  I wrote directions for my wonderful co-worker on this as well.

I slept in until six but needed to get up to prepare breakfast and make school lunches for the boys.  I made sure they had clean teeth and brushed hair before I could go back to bed.

For lunch I wanted comfort food so I made grilled cheese.

Alas, I had no soup.

It is now Sunday night and my painfully sore throat and fever are gone.  My throat is still scratchy and my sinuses are far from clear, but I am so much better than before.  Fingers crossed that no one else at Casa de Shoes on the Wrong Feet catches my bug.

About Shoes

I am an elementary school teacher, a former microbiologist, a mom to a herd of two boys, and a grilled cheese sandwich and beer connoisseur.

  1. Sorry to hear you’ve caught the crud. Fingers crossed it passes quickly… and leaves without touching the family.
