Da weather and stuff

It's still cold here. I think 90% of our staff were wearing black and grey today, with most tops consisting of turtleneck sweaters. I wonder how many had on their cuddle duds?!

Temps are supposed to start rising after tomorrow. It's a good thing because I am so darn sick of it already. Our principal has been nice enough to grant us a "comfy clothes" day on Friday. I look forward to wearing my sweatpants and hoody.
I got this in my email today....


On a more disappointing note, yes, something more disappointing then -30 degree temps... I think I am getting... something. Last friday I just felt a bit run down from getting back into the swing of things but felt fine until monday morning. The last couple of days I have had that dry burning feeling in the back of my throat and nose. Today I have that and the face and teeth pain. I have had enough sinus infections in my time to know exactly where this is going. I have been suffocating myself with fluids and airborne, as well as moving my workouts around so I could sleep more. I hope that I can keep whatever this is at bay. I am moving my swim to friday, because I can't bear the thought of getting in the pool with my head feeling like this. I will fight this!
As for the rest of this blistery cold night... I will be in bed catching up on some blogs and reading Eclipse.

Teef pain with sinus infections are the worst. I remember trying to exercise with that nonsense and wanting knock all my back teef out :-/ Sorry chica. I hope you feel better soon!

Snow is soooo pretty. But we're in a drought now, so any form of H2O looks good. Sorry about the sinus pain. that's the worst. Hopefully you'll knock it out soon.

TAke care of yourself. No workout is worth ignoring your body's cry for recovery to fight some bug.

Teeth pain? I've never had illness preceded by pain in my teeth.
