Wait, I'm Supposed To Update This Thing?

That's right, I have a blooooooggggg. Riiiiight.

Wait, so remind me how this works again?  I write something, post it here and then you all read it?  And comment?  Well that sounds just fabulous!  I should do that more often.

HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS IT'S BEEN OVER A MONTH!  One of you should have reached out through the interwebs and slapped me!   Or punched me!  Or at least yelled threatening statements about unfollowing me or something...

So.  Where have I been?  Where have I been?  Ah yes, it's all coming back to me now.  Let's see...well, there was Thanksgiving.  And then a few mind numbing bouts of random pains that sent me to the emergency room in a puddle that intermittently moaned and shouted, "Do something!" at passing doctors.  Hmmm....and then what?  Oh, then there was toast.  Miles and miles of nothing but toast until the doctors figured out what was wrong with me.  (An upside to this "diet"?  Losing the last ten baby pounds pre-holidays....cha ching!)   (I realize that last statement is all kids of messed up.  However, it is also true.)  Okay, so after the toast, you're thinking things can't get much worse, right?  You would be wrong.  Can you say "stomach flu"?????? 

'Cuz I can!

Rest assured that Mrs. Mimi is slowly but surely getting her (skinny!) (So messed up!)  self back together again.  Also, rest assured that future posts will not detail my gastrointestinal woes as this does not seem like true educational fodder.  However, I felt you all deserved some sort of explanation for my absence. 

Hope you are all enjoying the panic and mayhem that has become our holiday season, particularly for those of us working in schools.

xo,
Mimi

Glad you are back, but hope you get to feeling better asap! As for school, we were supposed to go today, but we had a fog day! :) Merry Christmas!

Glad to hear you're feeling better! I have the same problem...I haven't updated my blog in ages! Between the start of school and preparing for marching band and concerts, I've been crazy busy! Maybe I'll get around to posting over break!

Toast diet! Genius! Sort of. Not really.

Hope you are feeling better!

So sorry to hear you were not feeling well and are glad you are better (and back!) We are in school until 12/23 (a full day) so it IS a little hectic. :) The kids are hanging in there but....I am more than a little envious of "Smiling Teacher's" fog day!!

I noticed your absence, and though your blog is mostly educationally based, I am glad (but also sad) to hear that life happens to you too.

On another note, I personally and secretly consider the weight loss incurred with illness as life's little equalizer. Like "you have to be more miserable than anyone should ever have to be for a while, but as compensation, you will look fabulous in your clothes when it's all over." Right?

Cheers, and enjoy the holiday.
