Lost and Found

I lost last week, in an unplanned and unwelcome "vacation" from:
  • My day role as a literacy specialist
  • My night position as a grad school professor
  • My family's expectation of main dinner chef
  • My home's expectation that I will run the vacuum and dishwasher
  • My mom's expectation that I will stop by to care for her daily
  • My aunt's expectation that I will stop by to encourage and share smiles
  • My normal early morning computer blogging time
  • My life in a vertical position
I found last week, as I was lay on the couch:
  • What Not To Wear, Rachel Ray, and Dr. Oz get old quickly
  • It hurts a lot when you cough and you have pneumonia
  • Airborne, Robitussin, Mucinex, and NyQuil are not always enough
  • A microwave reheatable pad is something everyone should own
  • I miss my students, blogging, and even my treadmill
  • I value people around me and my busy life
  • Good people step in when one of their own is down for the count
  • My normal life is a pretty wonderful thing and I can't wait to get back!

Sorry to hear that you had pneumonia. That's terrible, Anita!

I'm home, sick, on the couch too. I'm bored. I just want to get back to the grind too. There's something to be said about normalcy!
