Working with children has it's good and bad news. Good: a lot of creative juices to draw from. Bad: a lot of cough and cold symptoms to catch from. I know how quickly these things spread but sometimes I'm real stubborn and don't take vitamins to prevent myself from getting infected. I hate being sick but I guess I got what I deserve somehow. Sometimes we need it in order to give ourselves a break. At least, it's not all the time. My mood for today isn't so low and it's manageable. In fact, I'm feeling almost optimistic. That's a first. Motivated? A little bit but it looks more like dragging a corpse. I'm fighting it though and I believe I'm winning. That's all that matters right now.
