Wish I had something interesting to say...

..But I don't. And yet I post anyway. They tried to send me home from work again today. No, not because I still can't talk normally. Noooo, not because I am coughing incessantly. Nooo, not because suddenly my "chest cold" has decided it now wants to take over my sinuses too and I have to blow my nose every five minutes. Not because of any of those things related to the flu/cold/plague that I have been home in bed with for the last four days. Why did they want to send me home? Drumroll please! Because I have PINK EYE! Yes, that's right, conjunctivitis.(Caution: gross picture) You know how I posted yesterday that I woke up and my left eye was plastered shut? Uhhhh, yeah, apparently that's not normal. So today I get up and it is considerably worse. When I got to work I went to see the school nurse about it and she said it is definitely pink eye and that I should go home immediately. So did I listen to her? Nooooo......My boss wasn't too keen on me going home sick again, so I made a quick call to the doctor to have him call in a prescription for some eyedrops. A quick trip to the pharmacy and all was well. It feels better already, although it looks really gross. Oh, and he said I could stay at work as long as I didn't touch my eyes and I put the drops in as soon as I got them, both of which I did. I must have washed my hands a hundred times today, and gone thorough a whole bottle of Purell. I am home now, and have decided not to go to Bunco tonight and possibly spread my germies to the ladies there. I'm sure they would thank me. Sheesh, between my foot injury, and the bloody noses, and the cold/flu, and the pink eye, I feel like I am slowly falling apart. Nothing else could go wrong, right? (Knock on wood, or my head, or some other hard surface)

You are a mess, Michelle! You know you must have caught pinkeye from one of those germy kids you work with! I have kids with pinkeye and lice every dang year. They always freak me out that I'm going to get one of those nasty things, too.

I hope you're taking good care of yourself. Feel well soon!

Good night, gal! You have got to get things whipped into shape. I hope you are feeling better soon and have that pink eye behind ya. Fortunately, easy to treat though nasty to look at ;0)

Soon you'll be ready to take on the world again :0)
