Being sick is bad enough, but going back to school and having a pile of missed work is even worse. All I did was miss one day of school with a head cold, and I came back with what seems to be five missed worksheets.
Honestly, I tried to keep up with the assignments when I was home sick. Then, after seeing how much more needs to be done, reality sets in, and you say to yourself “I didn’t really do all that much work.” You feel like you got absolutely nothing accomplished.
Adding to this, because it's nearing the end of the term, I have a math test tomorrow and a Latin test on Thursday. Mind blown! I didn’t know we fit that much work into a single day, let alone into one week. Apparently we do get a lot done during the school day after all.
Now I wish I was sick.
