The class cold. Oh, joy. At least I have time to get better before parent conferences next week and NCTE the week after that. Small blessings.

Katya at Write. Sketch. Repeat. has the Poetry Friday roundup today.

  9. Oh, ugh. Dry cold, blowing air. We had to turn on the heat this week here too. Here's to the season of sharing - germs and gifts - and sniff, sniff, sniffles. *sneeze*

  14. Take plenty of Benadryl - you won't notice your nose running if you're in a coma.

  15. Matt's comment made me laugh. Good luck, Mary Lee! If you don't want to go the comatose route, try food with lots of garlic (and horseradish, if that's your thing.)

  18. I'm with you, Mary Lee. I keep picking up germs from my older granddaughter who is in preschool. At least, you'll have a day of rest on Wednesday.

  19. Ugh, being sick when it is raining...your poem captured the dreariness of it all. Sending you feel better vibes, Mary Lee! =)

  20. Bleh. Dripping sinuses are the worst - you have my sympathies. Your poem made me smile, so I hope it made you feel a bit better too.
