Then, after another week at school, I started to feel off again. This time it was in my lungs. I had a really nasty cough to top it off and it got pretty bad. The worst was Monday night. I was sitting at home (Matt was at work with my car) when I started wheezing and my eye began to swell shut. In a panic, I called my mom, who came to my rescue with Benedryl. I called first thing Tuesday morning and talked to the doctor that afternoon on my prep period.
My appointment was yesterday and the verdict is that my walking pneumonia that I had in the Spring came back. The doctor gave me a nice long lecture about stressing myself out and getting more sleep.
His directions included staying in bed all day Saturday and Sunday, as well as when I get home from school today and tomorrow. :)
So, when he told me this, I knew that I needed to take advantage of my illness in the best way I know how! Reading!
I have been in a huge reading slump. I know that part of it is because I am adjusting to being back in school. By the time I come home, I am so mentally exhausted that I switch on the TV and zone out. But, I have some things I still want to read. Plus, I have a 3-day weekend this week, since Monday is a PD day and I don't have to go (you know, being a long-term sub and all).
So here are the reading plans for this weekend:
- Finish Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
- Finish Moby-Dick
- read half of Dracula
I guess you could say I am having a mini-readathon. Anyone want to join in? :)
(I secretly just like making lists and plans. It's called insanity. I haz it.)
Wish me luck and keep me company on Twitter all weekend!
