One Flu Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Hi friends, so I got completely wiped out by the flu this weekend. I mean I haven't felt this sick since I caught the swine flu my sophomore year in college. Luckily it was a three-day weekend so I had ample time to recover. Even so, being bedridden for nearly three whole days is not the business!

FYT tip #3 - take your vitamins, get good sleep, make time to exercise, whatever your body needs, take good care of it!

Anyways this is my lame excuse for missing my LOTW post. I'll get it up as soon as I can. Have a great week and happy teaching!

To be perfectly honest, I am personally quite adverse to vaccinations and medicine in general, but I will admit I did get the flu vaccine this year (Kaiser was out of the shots so I had to take the nasal spray - YUCK!) after a horrible week of stomach flu-like symptoms toward the end of 2012. I will say, I'm quite surprised that I didn't get sick from it AND I'm actually feeling better than ever here in February. So regardless of where your stance is on vaccinations, I think the bottom line is to be informed of all the options out there so that you can make the best decision for yourself and your health.
