It happens every morning. I wake up, I rush to get ready and eat breakfast, and then... I sit there doing nothing until it's time to leave for the bus. There's many other (more productive) things I could be doing right now, but instead, I decided to write a blog post and feel like I'd accomplished something.

Annika is finally getting better after a trip to the emergency room that included barfing out her antibiotics and a fever of 104 (I think). Lauren and I both had to go to school yesterday- and yes, I did finish all that homework.

Sitting by the window always reminds me of why I love it here in October. It's not too cold, but not too hot, and I can watch the sunrise BEFORE I get to school, as opposed to during school in the winter months. I can still go outside in shorts and a t-shirt if I want to, but it's not uncomfortable to wear pants and a light sweater (believe me, my classrooms feel like the north pole on Christmas Eve).

Having more time in the mornings is lovely, even if I do feel like I should be sleeping instead. Love you all!

It seems that whenever we get sick here, we all get sick. I'm home sick writing this, along with Lauren and Annika.

The thing is, we're all sick with different things, so what worked for one does not work for the others, and we all have different energy levels. I'm doing homework (so much to do!!), Lauren's reading (but would rather be sleeping), and Annika is lying comatose in front of the TV. She's probably watched the same Scooby Doo episodes 12 times this week.

Who will be struck down next? My money's on Brigitta.
