So I came home for the break, like I know many other teachers probably did, with a list of things to get done. Well, Friday night my computer went off and when I turned it back on, went right off again. I took it in to get it fixed (it's still there!) and borrowed a laptop that hadn't been used in years. When I turned it on it had 171 updates to wait for! I really think karma is telling me not to do any work over the break! :) I still don't have access to my pics that I downloaded. :(
If you read me regularly you know it has been a bit of a challenging year for me. I had knee surgery at the end of November and was out from school for 2 weeks. It probably should have been longer, but you know how that goes. When I came back, my motion was limited by crutches and even a wheelchair to go long distances. The kids and parents were uber-supportive and understanding, but it's still hard to feel so inadequate. You don't realize how much you walk or stand in a day on campus!
Well, yesterday in physical therapy....I rode a bike!!!! I went like 1/3 of a mile in 10 minutes (I had to go really slow) but I was so proud of myself! I'm down to one crutch now so I can do my own grocery shopping again and put out my own trash. It still has to get stronger-I haven't fully used it since before September because even before the surgery I was limping--but I will get there!
Ruby and I enjoyed our holiday! This is her with the toys Santa brought her-they didn't last more than 10 minutes, but that's how Christmas is supposed to be right?
So one week of vacation down and I really don't have very much accomplished. But I think that's what was meant to be! :) Hope you are enjoying your holidays and your break as well!
