I have not been writing lately. As usual I have an excuse. I have been sick. I developed a fever in Antalya which morphed into nightly fevers and a nasty cough. Some of the kids in the first row of my classes started donning masks. Seriously. The doctor prescribed two days of rest, so I do not have to get up and function normally tomorrow. This made me have tears of gladness, I have lost m voice on and off for the past two weeks and alternate between wounding like a person on their deathbed and someone who has smoked unfiltered cigarettes for 50 years (neither is ideal.) Do you know how children act when you can not raise your voice? Soft whispers do not encourage discipline.
I will be fine in a day or two, and I always like to look on the positive side. I have not wanted to eat alot, and mostly have been eating yogurt, so I lost a couple of pounds. I also have been coughing so much that I am developing a 6 pack. It helps distract me from the feeling my muscles are ripping apart. That is called an Ouchie Booboo.
