I'm writing that with a touch of sarcasm, of course. I thought I was sick when I wrote last, only three days ago. It turns out that I wasn't as sick as I can get. Cold, flu, pneumonia, or "the Louisiana crud," it really doesn't matter what we call it. I definitely had something. And that something was miserable.
Now I'm feeling only a little better, I've missed most of a week, and I have a lingering cough that can beat me down in about a minute and a half. I guess I'm writing just to let folks know that I am still here and will climb back on the blogging horse eventually.
It's just not happening tonight because somewhere in my school bag is a big stack of papers. At school are a passel of students clamoring for help and attention. And finally, in just a few short days there will be a scary, high-stakes test. How nerve-racking is that? Enough to bring about a relapse. I want my life back!
