This Is Just to Say:

If I write about it, will it go away? Is that how it works? Because after three nights of little sleep while Henry was very sick with strep throat (very sick in a way that sucked for him, but didn't require much beyond some Motrin and some company at 3 a.m. when he felt nauseous and/or thought his throat was going to explode from the PAIN), I'm burned. out.
So burned out, in fact, that dealing with my first-year students in my first class today nearly did me in. It turns out that putting "if you answer your cell phone during class, you'll be asked to leave and take an absence for the day" was NOT overkill. I'm just saying.
So, um, gods of strep throat? Please, please, please spare the rest of us. Because if I don't get some sleep, I'm gonna be really crabby. And you know what happens if mama ain't happy...
