I want my mom

I keep envisioning one of my third grade students sneezing an avalanche of snot into his hands and wiping them onto is matchy sweatsuit outfit as I lay in bed seemingly dying.

I am sick. Sick af. That’s what I get for realiably not washing my hands (in my defense, that water is always freezing and most of the time there’s no soap). 

At this point mouth breathing has become a way of life, so has applying chapstick to the outskirts of my nostrils.

I have used an ENTIRE roll of toilet paper for tissue. I am on season 6 of Archer, a series a started maybe 4 days ago. My adventure in Korea this weekend has been an internal one; developing antibodies my body never knew existed before. Wow, I am courageous and growing more resilient. 

I think I may order another pizza. Peace. 

Me and this tissue box became closely acquainted this past Friday.

  1. So sorry those nasty kiddo germs got you. It is an occupational hazard. Wish I could bring you some chicken-less noodle soup or hot tea. Hope you are getting some extra sleep. Love you, my little Kleenex clumping Caitlin!


  2. Hi . . . it’s your Aunt Judy here. I love the photos you posted, gives a real sense of where you are sans the kleenex box. Yes, antibodies are a good thing but sorry you were sick. You look like you are assimilating well, and experiencing Korean life. So proud of you.
