Getting sick abroad

(Not to be confused with “getting sick of abroad.” Sorry mom.)

Private school certainly has its perks.

For one, money gets spent on little stuff that makes life as a teacher that much easier; there’s always coffee brewing in multiple places around the campus, we have no limit on copying (color or black/white) and when you visit the nurse’s office she can shove all sorts of medication your way without any sort of payment.

As to who passed this particularly annoying ailment my way, I do not know. Several family members have apologized, but it’s more than likely the inordinate amount of time I spent outside geocaching when the temperature was single digits than some sort of airborne transmission by a loved one. Who knows.

Anyway, I’m on the way to feeling better thanks to a healthy dose of antihistamines,  cold & flu relief, cough syrup, and nasal spray – all provided by the school nurse. For free.

Perks, man. Perks.

  1. I just want to say that I am confident that I am NOT the source of your ailment—though I feel AWFUL for you, as being sick at home is a piece of cake compared to being sick while traveling!!!!

    Glad you are feeling better!! Go ND! Love ya–Ria

  2. Glad you’re feeling better, Jeff. By now I imagine the three of you back into a work routine, which always brings a certain comfort to each day. Please ask Abby to send me an email so I will have her address. My email address book is “lost”, so I can’t initiate and email unless I have an address. Love to you all. Grandpa W

  3. Aunt Ria – pretty sure it wasn’t you! It was more flu-like. Jeff’s feeling much better, just a lingering cough now. After a few dusty days last week I also caught a not fun sinus cold. Took the day off work today to recover!

    We are back in our routine Grandpa! We’re mostly over jet-lag and trying to explore Kuwait a little. Abby should have emailed you a few days ago!

    love to you both! xoxo
