A Letter

Hello Blog,

How are you doing?  I know it has been ages since I've written.  I've been thinking about you, but just haven't had the energy to write.  I've been feeling sick for most of the past week.  I even came home early on Wednesday and slept the afternoon away.  I felt better on Thursday, but awful again on Friday.  It feels like I'm about to go down with an infection, but it never comes to fruition.  I feel tired and achy, but there is no fever.  I tried to rest this weekend, but I had a zoo meet-up which I organized so I had to be there and I would have to be much sicker than this before I would miss my monthly history walking tour.  I think I feel better, but I'll know for sure tomorrow when I have to be active the whole day.  

Last week was hard not just because I was sick, but because I had absolutely no desire to be at work.  This is one of the hardest weeks I've had in a long time.  I have just no interest in being there.  Hopefully things will settle down this week as I pass out music and settle into a UIL routine.  I'm trying to have a positive attitude about work, because I know that attitude is a large part of it.  It's hard though when you are feeling sick to also muster up fake enthusiasm.  I'll keep trying.

I think the "wish I had a boyfriend" blues are still around, but most things have been pushed to the back burner while I'm tired and run down.  Hmm... I thought I had more things to tell you blog.  It seems instead I just have this litany of complaints.  I really wanted to be more positive in 2009.  Well, I'm sure things will perk up once this thing, whatever it is, passes.  Hope to hear from you soon.


PS I just noticed while looking through the blog archives that I get sick every January.  Interesting.
