It's always interesting the range of reactions you get when you tell people you're a MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER.
A couple weeks ago we had an unwanted guest in our home, wreaking havoc on the entire household--the dreaded stomach virus. Oh yes.
I'll spare you the rest.
Whenever one of these bugs hits my first thought is "yup, throwing up is indeed one of my least favorite activities" followed closely by "I really did not need to be reminded of this". It took its turn with each of us and, even though I was only actively sick for a day or two, my appetite for the foods I usually love was still gone long after the bug had run its course. In the days that followed, all I seemed to crave were fruits and vegetables and just the thought of meat or dairy turned my stomach. I was even skipping my morning coffee, so I knew something was askew--Momma doesn't skip her morning coffee.
I'm Krissy & I'm so thankful you're here. Teacher-Mom life is rewarding but it's tough--we need fuel (& each other) to keep going. I hope this is a place you can go that feels like caffeine for the soul--uplifting & highly addictive ;) Check out the categories below and, if you like what you read, subscribe to make sure you always have good Sunday morning reading to go with your coffee :)
