Song: "Put Your Records On"- Corinne Bailey Rae
Mood: Happy

The last time I wrote it was almost two weeks ago. I do appologize for not posting sooner. I do have a valid reason though...

On Tuesday, March 6th (our 3rd anniversary of our first date) I was walking (at lunchtime) to the back wall in my room to staple someone's paper to the back wall. As I was walking past one of the desks, my right pant leg got caught on the desk (there's a missing piece on the desk and gives it a sharp edge) and I ended up ripping my favorite jeans and tripping and falling flat on my face.

I immediately felt like I was going to pass out. Charlotte and Michelle had just walked in from taking the kids to lunch and they asked if I was okay. I explained what happened and Charlotte called Kitty (school nurse) and I sat down and elevated my foot. This is the same ankle that I had surgery on back when I was 15. The smallest thing makes me sprain it, so it wasn't the first time since I was 15 that I've hurt it.

Kitty came down with some ice and a wrap and wrapped up my ankle. It was throbbing and really hurt. Michelle called Daryl's office to ask if they could get me in, they said 3pm was the soonest, so she made the appointment for me. Then she called Steve and he said that he'd be leaving work shortly to come home.

Michelle drove me home and I left Cleveland back at school. Steve and I went to Daryl's and he ended up giving me a shot (Cortozone) that hurt really bad... and then he wrapped my ankle in a cast. We stopped on the way home to get some crutches. Michelle brought my car to me (which was very nice of her) and then she said she'd pick me up to take me to school.

I was on crutches from Tuesday through Sunday. I wasn't able to drive all week. We had a field trip with our reading buddies on Thursday (we went bowling) and Michelle was allowed to drive me in her car (I couldn't get on the bus). When she brought me home on Thursday, Steve said that he was going to work from home on Friday. I told Michelle that I wasn't going to go to work on Friday and said that she could have the day off if she wanted.

On Friday Steve and I met Michelle and her roommate Jenn at O'Charlie's for lunch. It was sooooo good! Michelle came back home with us and we watched the Patriot and just talked. Her roommate came and got her after we were done watching the movie.

We had Main Dish on the 10th. I wasn't able to do much, as I was on crutches. So I finished my book (Dear John by Nicholas Sparks) and just relaxed on the couch while Steve made everything. Saturday night we just hung out at home and watched some movies.

This last week was more of the same as last week. Monday and Tuesday was beautiful... in the 70's on Monday and in the 60's on Tuesday. It was a big tease though... it was back to cold and snow on Wedensday and Thursday.

Wednesday I went back to Daryl's and he took my cast off and I am walking normal again. My ankle still kind of hurts though. I think maybe after a week it'll start to feel better.

Yesterday there was a ton of drama at work. There are some MAJOR changes coming for the next year... and I'm a little anxious to see what happens. They said that there's a chance that many people will be displaced... and laid-off. I pray that I'm not going to have to worry about it... I've got 6.5 years of senority so hopefully it'll keep me safe. There's rumors that they're closing one of the schools... and those kids and teachers will be randomly placed throughout the district. The teachers all have more senority than me... so who knows what's going to happen.

Dave called me last night. We talked for about 45 minutes or so, and it was nice to chat with him. He's doing detective stuff right now (which I think is totally cool) and he's hoping to move to Gangs soon. I think it's scary that he's going to work on the gang unit, but he said he thinks it's going to be fun and he's really excited about it. I don't think I could do his job.

Emily at work is pregnant. So Mike's wife Jodi is pregnant (due in July)... Kylie is pregnant (due in August)... and now Emily is pregnant (due in November). That's 3/4 members of my 5th grade team. That means that if I get pregnant (and hopefully it'll happen in the next few months)... all of the 5th grade team will be having babies.

Today is St. Patty's Day. We're going to the Mitchell's for a bit today. I guess we're going to be the only people there... which does not make for a lot of fun. We haven't been to their place in a while so we need to just go. Ned can't come with us (which bugs me) so we are not staying the night.

I need to go shower and start getting ready to leave. Until next time...
