Nice Luck, Eh?

I totally jinxed myself. 
 
Last Friday I said 7 words that I never should have said.
 
 
(I knocked on wood 4 times, but it still jinxed me).
 
 
"I have not been sick all winter."  said, Ashley.
 
 
I was thrilled, considering the fact that I used to get sick at least 4 times per year since I started my job four years ago. I was marveling at my newly developed immune system.  I was singing the praises of my new Ear, Nose and Throat doctor and was thinking about how I'll feel even better after my sinus surgery this summer. 
 
I should have known better. 
 
I spent a total of 5 minutes on Thursday with a super ill guidance counselor.  On Friday, I spent about 5 minutes with a different sick guidance counselor. 
 
I should have known better.
 
I woke up on Sunday with a raging sore throat.  It's still sore and it's still raging. 
 
 
 
If you're wondering, I'm working through it.  I have no choice.  I have IEP meetings Monday-Thursday and my formal observation with my boss tomorrow.
 
Gag me.

Oh poor thing. I hope you start feeling better. Seems like there's always something going around.

Feel better! Good luck with the observation... I had one last week when I was sick and it was no fun but I got through it!

Oh no! Sick, IEP's AND an observation? Blech. No fun! But, you'll rock the observation and you're a pro at IEP's, so really.. you just have to deal with the sickness. No fun. Thinking of you tomorrow during your observation!
