I decided against skating after school today, seeing as I was feeling unwell all day and rather like a fever was coming on. Add in a swollen gland under my jaw, and I figured it would be best to avoid over-exertion and sweating in the cold. Can’t afford to take a sick day this week — not with another fundraiser about to start on Wednesday (getting the students to make wreaths to sell) and a major assignment being collected tomorrow and marks due next Monday.
Still haven’t been able to plan my daughter’s 10th birthday party. It’s nagging at me. Wasn’t able to get in touch with the manager of the new Microtel — he is away until Wednesday — so I’m crossing my fingers that we will be able to have it there.
In the meantime, I have taken another dose of Buckley’s and loaded up on ginger ale. Hoping to feel better in the morning.
