I hope that everyone has been enjoying a fabulous holiday season with their family and friends. Our holiday was interrupted with me having a nasty case of strep throat. It started the Saturday before Christmas and I was not feeling close to 100% until the day after Christmas. Those days leading up to Christmas are always my favorites. At home, at my school, and with my kids! I think that it's the anticipation of what is to come. Unfortunately, all that I got to experience was a torturous amount of time in bed. If you know me, laying still and not being able to talk is truly torture! I hurt so bad, talking and swallowing was virtually impossible, and the pounding headache caused by a high fever didn't make that resting time restful at all. I am glad to say that I am feeling tons better and Christmas happened (successfully)! So, I have been trying to catch up at home with my kids, my teaching, my SU! stuff, and of course blogging! I hope that by the end of the week, everything will be caught up (and hopefully a little bit ahead)! If you get a chance to check out this great promotion from SU!, please do! What a fun way to get a headstart on Valentine's Day!
