I am almost at the end of my second week of school, and have not been absent yet.
I wonder how long that'll last. Last year I really wanted to make at least the first month without an absence, and that didn't work out very well. Last year was one of the worst years I have had in a very long time, which sucked.
My son is in a new school this year. I wonder how many new germs, and what kinds of germs, he'll bring home.
My husband has a new job that requires a lot of travel. I wonder how my body will handle the stress of being a single parent (and working full-time) at regular intervals this year.
It's almost depressing, the way I see a new school year. I am glad to be back, doing something productive, and talking to other grownups. However, while everyone else in the world looks at a new school year as a fresh start, a new beginning, I can't help but think of how it will affect my health.
