What a way to start the school year!

It was the first day of school for teachers. That is really the best part. I woke up and was ready to go. We have a lot of construction at schools in our district so we were ready to walk but the bus came by and picked us up. Well, we all got off at the junior high building. It was still good! Then, we walked in. I guess there were about 8 of us and we all headed down the stairs to the high school cafeteria. (Just so you know, the cafeteria is shared by the junior high and high schools--I've not lost it yet!)

I made it better than two thirds down when I missed a couple of steps. Yes, I took a fall. Several tried to help me up right away and I said to just let me be....and holllered that my glasses went flying. My friend, Cindy picked them up and some others went for the nurse after I said that I was hurting but other than that seemed okay. I think I am but I went down on my left hand and both elbows. I hurt mostly on the left. I avoided hitting my head by swinging it back. I sat on the floor for a bit. Our school nurse came out to the hall where I was. I was able to move everything but it hurt. Now, I've been busy all day. It was the first day we really got into our classrooms to set up for the new school year. They put new windows in this week. Mine went in yesterday. I had Rick, Ricky and Alice there helping. I owe them! They were awesome. I looked pretty much ready with a few exceptions.

Our new year picnic was a success. I had several students from past years come see me. THAT did make me feel better! It let me know that I left a positive influence with them. One came from last year and surprised me. She was a young autistic girl from 8 years ago. She was so nice and everything!

Now, I know the pain will set in....I'll be very stiff and be hurting more tomorrow. I will do my best to do what is needed tomorrow. Then, I have the weekend to recover.

Hey! I figure it can only go uphill now, right!

Oh you poor dear! If that wrist is still sore on Saturday you should go and get an x ray to make sure you did not break it.

Sometimes these events can be more embarrassing than painful!
Hope you are feeling better quickly! So nice that you had all that help.

I too enjoy it when the kids I used to bus come over and say hello, makes you feel good to be remembered!

I literally feel your pain---I fell down the stairs at home last Friday. I bounced on my big bootie, so it really could have been worse! A huge bruise on one "cheek" still a week later and it still hurts to sit for long periods of time. I had a doctor's appoint Monday anyway and we agreed that if my tailbone is broken, nothing can be done, so she didn't bother to check it. I've given birth and had a 4th degree episiotomy, so this fall was nothing compared to that!

I hope you feel better soon, and be careful!!

I'm more sore today. This is going to take a bit to heal. At least, I do feel good about going into the new school year.
