Why doesn't the world stop when you're sick?

Oh man.  I woke up on Saturday feeling all kinds of crappy.  Sore throat.  Headache.  Body ache.  Stuffy nose.  That kind of head cold that insists you don't even think about crawling out of bed.  Boo.  I've been choking down Thera-flu, ibuprofen, allergy pills, you name it.  Sunday morning came and I felt worse.  Tossing and turning every night does not make things better.  Life just doesn't stop though.  Student grades have to be entered on Monday.  This means I have to grade.  I have to go to school and enter grades on Monday.  I have to go talk to teachers about a student meeting I have on Wednesday.  I have to prepare for and participate in the meeting Wednesday or it'll take me double the time to reschedule and get everyone to attend. 

Life doesn't stop.  Work doesn't stop. 

On a positive note, I was browsing shopbop for a bit today (what else is there to do when you're sick and have already watched enough Weeds to make you dizzy?).  I found a couple of guilty pleasures that I'm totally putting on my wish list (before they sell out that is).

[Sauce Gaga Middle School Tee, $32, on sale - ok you know I have an obsession with Gaga.  Love this.  They also have one for Blair from GG]

Then I browsed over at J Crew...
[Always pocket cardigan,  $29.99 - desperately hoping this one is still available in my size as of Friday, pay day only available in XX-small]

[This whole outfit is to-die-for, but specifically the Felted Wool Mini.  $69.50 is a bit out of my price range but they do have my size!]

But then there are things like this calling my name...

[Last minute AND cheap trip to San Fran!]

[Saving up for Spain next winter!]

For whatever reason, the will/need to travel is overcoming my desire for more clothing, shoes, and accessories!

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Sorry to hear you are sick! Hope you get better! The J Crew card is lovely. I like grey. You are so luck to go to San Francisco. It's a beautiful place.

Oh no! I hope you feel better soon! And that felted wool mini is adorable -- a perfect winter color.

I hear ya about that will to travel! If only we had enough money for travel and clothes!

Hope you're feeling better. I know that kind of sick but have been luck enough (touch wood!) not to have experienced it for a while. Take it easy!
