It's WAR!

I've been waging war this school year on germs and burnout. With a crazy schedule a whole school of germs coming in and out of my room I am treating this like war.

Every time we have a day off I try to get as many vitamins as I can, as all teachers know there is little time for eating during the week. Then I get as many outfits together as I can. After teaching with a half hour break somedays, I can barely take care of myself at the end of the day, let alone my three year old.

THIS IS WHAT WAGING WAR ON THE GERMS AND FATIGUE LOOKS LIKE

GULP! YUCK.

It's been working okay so far. I've been doing this along with a protein shake and some other health food vitamins to supplement my regular diet of caffeine throughout the week (just kidding, sort of.)

Am I the only teacher who has to prepare like a squirrel for just one week of work?

Ha! Love it. I'm actually doing a project about germs with my first graders. Maybe I'll save a few sick days this way!

Hand sanitizer, hand soap, then hand lotion, 3x a day morning, at lunch and then before I leave for the day. Along with hand sanitizer and hand lotion in the car in case I forget...lol. I have an 8 month old at home and it's rough...!

Ugh. I know what you mean about germs and sickness. I had a 6th grader sneeze on me the other day. One quick bath in hand sanitizer, and I was all set. Grossed out, but set!

Zach definitely have to do a germ PSA with the kids. It is out of control!

Last year, I was sick from October thru March! I even spent 24 hours in bed at NAEA, so I too decided to wage WAR! I was at the doctor in October with a similar cold from last year! I really put the doctor in the hot seat to tell me how to stay healthy! His answer, saline spray every night and open the windows EVERYDAY at school. Pretty simple, I have been following his advise and SO FAR SO GOOD!

I read this a few weeks ago and thought that I've been pretty healthy. Now we've had about 3 weeks of sickness in our house. I'm so tired of being sick!!
