In case you were wondering....

I did stay home from work that day (Wednesday). I actually had Friday off too. Well sorta. I went to Hershey, PA with the choral and band students for a competition. We met at the school at 5:30am. And arrived back at school at 10 pm. It was pouring rain until 3:30. 2 other teachers and I tried to stay dry by hanging out in Chocolate World for about 2 hours. I think my feet started to mold they were so wet. Saturday I slept in and took 2 naps. The only time I left the house was to buy more cough syrup. Sunday I left church early because I couldn't stop coughing and took a nap. I decided to take Monday off as well. After downing half a bottle of cough syrup and taking a 2 hour nap I was hoping things would begin to improve. And this morning I felt like GOLD when I woke up. The cough is still there. I was in a meeting and was coughing and coughing and coughing. Everyone was asking if I was okay. I think they thought I was crazy when I said I was feeling the best I had in the past 11 days.

Over 2 weeks ago I put in to take THIS Friday off- just for fun. Do I still take it even though I haven't been in school 4 of the last 7 days? Decisions. Decisions.

Really? You're seriously wondering?? Ummm YEAH!!!! take the day off!! Good-Ness, woman! Sleep in. Lounge around. Bring me lunch. oh wait, that part wasn't for you.

And I heard a little rumor that O-Canada might not be hosting one Shelley T? That maybe you won't leave us after all? And how delightful that'd be?...

...a little birdie told me...

Oh oh!!! Dan loves bacon!!! Except he kind of already has a girl.

As for the apparently dirty rumor, Ummm.... ok, well I was just visiting with a good ole friend today while I was working out and this friend said you might stay if a certain teacher didn't stay in your school, and I said that would be interesting because you don't have any of your stuff lined up to stay, so how would that happen? and this person said that's what they heard is that maybe you'll stay if someone else retires because then you can run the show and be the boss lady. And it only came up because of some horrendous meeting that happened today that I was hearing about...

Bacon for eternity. Not that bacon isn't great, but would you do the same thing but in cinnamon rolls and other baked goods?
