Well, we're in Shreveport for Easter weekend and I'm SO glad for this little break! I've definitely been in need of it! Unfortunately, I'm a little under the weather and have been all week. L Hence, the lack of blogging lately. My week has gone a little something like this!
Last weekend was spent working on homework, but Bryan and I did go watch some of my girl's soccer games. It was their first game of the season and they were so glad I came! We had fun watching them! The weather was beautiful, windy, but nice. Bryan and I officially got our first sunburn! After the game, we went and got a snack at Sonic, and went to Lowes to get fertilizer. I took Bryan back to the house so he could go fertilize our lawn and then I went shopping for a new Easter dress! That was fun!
I of course put off all of my graduate school homework until the last minute! I had my regular homework (reading 3 books, doing pithy quotes, writing a reaction paper) plus my course essays to write. Those are 4 essays over 4 core classes that I've taken over the past 3 years. I worked finished my homework over the weekend and then had class on Monday night. Then, I wrote one essay on Sun/Mon, one on Tues and started another, then finished the rest on Wednesday. Tuesday night I had to go to the PTA meeting, and then worked on an essay. I also had to prepare for a meeting that I was hosting on Wednesday for part of my leadership class final, so I was stressed out about that too! After we went to the soccer games on Saturday, I started to feel under the weather. We thought it was just allergies, so I didn't really think anything of it. However, it got worse during the week, so we decided it wasn't allergies. I didn't sleep good all week long because I had a horrible cough. Then, I woke up Wednesday morning with a really bad ear ache in my right ear. Bryan thought I should go to our clinic that the district provides, but I checked online and they didn't have ANY appointments available. Bryan told me to go after school and ask them if they would look at me even without an appointment, bc one of his coworkers had been in the same situation and she ended up being seen without an appointment, so I said ok. I barely survived on Wednesday, but made it through and my meeting I hosted went really good.
I cleaned up really fast and then raced over to the clinic at the perfect time. The last appointment they take of the day is at 4:40 and I got there at like 4:55, so the Dr. would have been seeing her last patient and then could have seen me (which would have taken like no time at all). So I walked into the clinic and told the receptionist that I didn't have an appointment, but I was pretty sure that I had an ear infection and could the Dr. see me. She told me NO! She said they had two appointments available the next day at 1 and 2, but I told her that I was a teacher and couldn't make those appointments. She was like, well we're closed on Friday, so the earliest I can get you in is on Monday. HELLO?!! DID YOU HEAR WHAT I SAID! ARE YOU STUPID? That's what I was yelling at her in my head, however, I said, "So you're telling me that she can't see me"? and she said yes. She didn't even go ask the Dr! I just said thanks and walked out. I was sooooo mad!
Long story short, I ended up going to a Care Now clinic and saw a Dr. He took one look in my ear and said, "Wow! That's really inflamed! You definitely have an ear infection!" Yeah, no duh! He ended up giving me 2 antibiotics and I'm now taking them and feeling a smidge better. He told me not to expect to get better fast though, because middle ear infections in adults take a long time to heal. He told me he had one that lasted a month. Thank you Mr. Dr. for that! That really makes me feel good!
So, I survived one more day of school yesterday, then we packed and drove down to Shreveport last night. Can you tell I'm ready for some rest, and relaxation! J I hope that your week and weekend is NOTHING like mine was! Happy Easter!
