Ah, Spring Break. I love me some Spring Break.
I love sunshine and warm weather and birds singing in the trees. I love not having to keep school uniforms washed and in fact letting the laundry go just a little bit. I love that there is no homework. I love that Lent is almost over and I’ll be able to each chocolate at will again.
What I do not love is massive sinus infections that restrict your ability to breathe and cause your teeth to ache.
I have taxed my body mightily these past few days, taking every over-the-counter medication I could think of to ease my symptoms. And washing them down with caffeinated beverages to try and keep awake in the process, since practically everything makes me sleepy. But there is only so much that plan can do for you, and my body responded with an increased heart rate and achy kidneys. In the end I felt so bad I just gave up and went to the doctor. Her verdict? A “doozy” of a sinus infection, here’s a Z-pack and a steroid shot.
Last night I went to bed early just because I could.
Nine hours of sleep is a beautiful thing.
I think I may be on the mend (finally) but it’s still early in the day.
