my heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains

Slowly recovering my mojo after a week of what my doctor calls a chest infection and what I call the consumption. Thanks to antibiotics, I find myself in little need of laudanum and the complete works of Keats...well, in as little need as I am normally, which is considerably higher than none. I even spent two consecutive days off work this week, extending my regular not-fun weekend into a 4 day not-fun weekend. The coughing - oh, the coughing. I'm lucky I have any lungs left, and that my throat didn't secede in the bargain. But I've been dancing, and I've been mothering, and I keep reminding myself that I was considerably worse off last year at this time despite relative good health. If I managed to stay awake past 6:30 last year it was a major victory.

Blake is improving in class, although we continue to get notes about his progress. I'm starting to dislike his teacher, although I do my best not to show it in front of Blake. Teachers are the worst parents to have - we know all the system flaws and we judge other teachers more harsly than anyone else would dare. Trying not to let my bile choke me. Trying hard.

Don't make me send out the Blake. He doesn't listen to *anyone.*
