What a Week!

Whew! How come shorter weeks are always the weirdest ones?

We had school every day but Wednesday - Friday we had half days for students. Wednesday and Friday afternoon was records time (end of semester) and Thursday was professional development. All in all, it was a good week...just weird.

On Monday, I slipped on some ice in our parking lot getting into my car. Problem is, my leg went one way and my knee went the other. Thank goodness I didn't actually fall because it has hurt enough without the added injury of falling on it. I had to go to the med station through workman's comp on Tuesday after school and again on Thursday. Since I was given a brace and told to avoid's a good thing we have an elevator since my classroom is on the 3rd floor! That's a lot of steps!

The kids were really awesome about how slow I had to be getting from place to place. If it had to happen, I'm glad it happened when I had the afternoons without students so I could prop my knee and ice it as needed. Turns out, I bruised the back of my kneecap.

I know, I know. I even asked the doctor how that was possible if I didn't actual fall on it. But he said think of the knee like a big rubber band...when your leg went left and your knee went right, eventually they came back together and snapped enough to cause the injury. I have to go back on Tuesday afternoon for him to recheck but it feels a million times better today than it did two days ago so I'm hopeful to be good as new soon. I'm not digging the brace as it gets uncomfortable after awhile. 

When I'm home, I can take it off and just prop the knee, but at school since I move around so much, that's not possible. The brace has to stay on.

Alas, while dealing with my bum leg most of the week, I didn't get anywhere with my stuff for the end of the marking period....we had benchmark/end of MP tests this week and I have about 100 to grade still. Yay me! :p So that will all be done plus my graduate homework and I'm hoping to take most of Monday to just relax before the crazy week ahead. 

Happy weekend!
