oy....i've got strep throat....last night i wanted to die i felt so bad....have you ever gotten sick and ached from head to toe? well....that was me last night.

for a little history, i had tonsilitis nearly every year as a child. my tonsils probably should have been taken out, but that was in the era where they didn't like to do it that often. well, as many of the other chronic tonsilitis sufferers of my youth, my tonsils now get little pockets of abscess in them. and i've been getting them for a lot longer than i'd care to admit! but, i discovered these little jewels of nastiness in college, and figured out that you could get them out with a q-tip and some gentle pressure. being the obsessive compulsive pimple picker that i am i push them out every so often if i see them (cos i check now that i know that they're there...) or if my throat hurts.

so, as i was looking around, i noticed that it wasn't the general nastiness....then i spiked a fever yesterday.....thinking that i've infected everyone who's going to get it, i decide that i'll just sleep it off and be able to deal with the daycare kiddos the next day, provided that the parents would still bring their babies to me.....well...i fell asleep just after 6pm last night, and awoke feeling WORSE than when i lay down.... :( so i call all my kiddos and tell them that i won't be able to watch them. i feel terrible when i can't, not that it happens that often.

so collin comes to me and tells me that it hurts when he swallows his own we go again...... *sigh*
