#16 I need a Check up

S.O.L. #16 out of 31

I need a Check-Up 

Patient: Married Female, Teacher,  Mother of 2

Conditions: A crowded classroom full of 25 antsy 5th graders
on a cloudy, dreary, rainy day
                   during the longest week of the year
                   when report cards must be done by Friday.

Chief Complaint:    Extreme Fatigue

Symptoms:   Loss of concentration, Frequently worn out
Lack of energy,  tired, dragging, overall lethargy

When is it occurring?      The week of daylight savings right before spring break and it is only hump day.

Official Diagnosis: ...........
Patient is suffering from a combination of 
Hump day Fever & Spring Break-itis

Doctor’s Orders: My Home Remedy:
Increase your intake of fluids Alrighty, I will grab an extra cup of Jo in  
the morn and maybe that donut too!

Limit excessive workload. Guess I won’t grade those papers tonight.
Get extra rest Yes,  I could use an after school nap

Reduce stress. Ok, that means order Take-out for dinner

Avoid overexertion No problem.  I should definitely skip 
working out and try a warm bubble bath therapy 
coupled with a glass of wine.

Take 1 or 2 Pick-Me-Ups I get that every time I read posts and
And a full Dose of Laughter      comments from the Slice of Life.

I will see if this treatment can get me through the rest of the week!

The good news is I heard there is a CURE……..

SPRING BREAK!!!! (next week)


  1. Hahaha! Love the doctor's orders! I am feeling your pain. My break doesn't start until next Friday and already the kiddos are going bonkers. Report cards are due next week for me as well. Hang in there! It will be here before you know it.
