I'm Back

I've been out the past week feeling sick. Otherwise, I'd be updating my blog almost daily. My head is pounding, I have enough mucus in me to drown a mule, I feel high, (probably from the medication), and I can't concentrate on anything. And to top it off, I am going to teach class today, and try to catch up on planning lessons and working on the class blogs for form 2. Yup, it should be a really interesting day.

To top it off, I got an e-mail from my sister, saying that my Dad is dying. It really doesn't look good. Then I realize, I missed his birthday (July 12). That makes me feel even better. There's no question that I will call him up later, wish him a happy belated birthday, and see how he's doing. The only question is whether I tell my wife about it, because she'll get upset, and that's not something she needs right now.

That's because physically she's not doing good, because she is now 33 weeks pregnant and feeling it. There is pain in her ribs where the baby kicks her. She has trouble breathing. She can't sleep because she can't get comfortable. Her tummy is the size of a large watermelon. She has to eat little snacks almost constantly. She has to pee about twenty times a day.

Oh, and after school is over, she wants to walk into town, and send some money to the Philippines for her sister's college expenses.

I'm just wondering what the rest of the day is going to be like.

Or even worse, what will the weekend bring?

I think I just want to crawl into bed for the weekend, and turn into a vegetable.

In other words, life goes on . . .
