Wee Wee Weeeeeeeee

Friday we celebrated our 100th day of school.    Unfortunately I do not have pictures to share, but I have a short funny.  The kiddos made necklaces from fruit loops.  The ends were taped to their desks to prevent a big mess.  All of a sudden I heard one of my boys say "Look! It's a zip line!"  Seconds later, there was an outbreak of  "wee wee weeeeeeeeee!"   I laughed so hard I thought I was going to wet my pants!

Now on to my foot drama that started last Sunday evening.   I decided that the pain in my foot was not getting any better.  So...after church, my husband took me to Urgent Care.   I walked wobbled to the x-ray machine and had to put my foot in positions that only made me want to scream.  I returned to my room, only to be asked to go back again, because the machine wasn't working properly.  Are you kidding me.  But I just smiled and said SURE!!!

Anyways, an hour later the doctor came in with news I was not expecting.  It is broken!  What!  What!  Apparently it is a bad break.  Instead of  a break across the bone, its is lengthwise & is he called it a spiral break and it takes forever to heal those kind of breaks.  There was nothing that they could do for me so they were making an appointment for me with an orthopedic specialist.

Things started going blurry for me after that...  Everything started spinning, I broke out in a sweat, I knew that I was going to faint if I didn't lie down and I felt like I was only moments away from puking.  I grabbed the clipboard the doctor had with all my information on it, the doctor grabbed the trash can  and put it within easy reach.  My husband was absolutely no help!  He started laughing, but I don't really know what he said to the doctor.   But the doctor turned and left...never to be heard from again.  

I was given a $20 open-toed shoe to wear, a prescription for a walker, and told to put absolutely NO pressure on my foot.   Now, I'll wait by my phone to get the call for my appointment.

And as if that is not enough bad news for me ... I am so so so sad!!  My awesome teaching partner and I had made exciting plans to spend the entire day Friday with Diane & Kelly over at Made for 1st Grade!!!!  What an opportunity to spend the day with them!!!! Darn the luck!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can all reschedule.  If you haven't checked their blog out you need to do so!

  12. OUCH! I have been there; I had a spiral break in my right leg from tripping over a gas pump hose. I know it is funny at first until you are sitting in an ER looking at crutches, surgery and a wheelchair! I feel your pain. I LOVE your website and all the great features you have on it. The scrolling teacher blogs at the bottom is awesome. Take care of that foot and I hope it heals up quickly!!!

  13. I just fixed the doggie valentine bag link. Sorry about that. It was on private instead of public. It's all yours now :))

  14. I love the funny stories of your kiddos comments and questions in class. They really are so precious that sometimes I can't put into words the hilarious stuff I hear in my classroom. I love the way you write it and reminds us that work with all the little guys how we do get comedic relief all day long.
