I've been fighting a sore throat/cough for the last couple of days.
on saturday, I refused to be in bed all day, so we played all day with mom and dad gilbert.
but I think I pushed myself a little too hard; I woke up sunday sooo dizzy--I couldn't even walk without wanting to throw up!
and slowly, my voice has faded to zero.
today, I woke up with hardly any voice--which obviously causes a small problem when you teach all day.
so today quickly turned into a "30 Days" day
(teachers--this is the best thing you could buy! a lot of the episodes can be directly related no matter what subject you teach. PLUS there is always a great reflection/discussion topic afterwards. my favorite things for substitute days, or days like today HA
I actually learned about this from MY government teacher in high school!)
aaand I don't know whether to be offended when the students come in, realize I don't have a voice, and then make the connection--"wait, does that mean no notes today!? WAHOOO!"
and then they excitedly tell one another, "mrs. gilbert is sick! mrs. gilbert doesn't have a voice!"
I'm like, "gee, thanks, guys!"
but, at the same time, what high school student WOULDN'T prefer an easy day? ha
on top of all of that, I woke up to a sudden and horrible bloody nose (bye-bye pillow case)
and have already had two more since waking up!
so yeah, it's been a great monday.
but today was made a little bit better when this cute guy brought me lunch:
and also. it's bachelor monday.
AND LOOK AT THIS.
becca tilley commented back to me on instagram. HA
I freaked out like a teenage girl at a one-direction concert.

i love her. and now even more so! haha
