1. I finished all my teaching relicensing stuff last weekend, turned it in at my school on Monday and it was approved by the local committee today! This wasn't due for awhile but I like to have things done ahead. There is tons to do at school coming up and I didn't want this hanging over my head. Now I just need to write the big check and send it off.
I also had to get fingerprinted. I had it done today. I have been teaching for more than 30 years without having had it done but I guess they want to see what I have been hiding all this time. When I student taught a million years ago in Florida I had to get finger printed there. Vermont is just catching up to the reality that bad people get into teaching too. The good part was I had to leave school early to do it, so I was at the gym early - whole different crowd - and home earlier than expected. More free time is always good!
2. I am thinking it would have maybe been a good idea to go to the doctor's last week when I got hurt. Although I am not sure anything could have been done. My side still hurts a fair amount esp. when I run. I did take the original 3 days off when I was also sick. It gets really tight when I run and I think about a break not because I am tired but because of the pain. I know I know it sounds nuts that I am running. But it is getting better, just not as quickly as I would have liked. Maybe I didn't go to the doctors because I didn't want to be told to stop running. On the other side my heel is feeling top notch, I absolutely can't believe how good it is feeling. I wore dressed two days this week because I could wear shoes without orthotics. The girly girls in the third grade were just delighted to see me in some dresses! The boys loved it today when I wore my BRIGHT green shoes again.
3. I just finished the second season of Lost and have started the third! Loving it. It certainly makes those morning stretches more enjoyable.
Bonus News: One week from right now I will be in DC with Emily ready to do some running, eating, gabbing, sight seeing and just plain enjoying being with my daughter. I warn you this isn't the last time I will share my excitement about this!
This time there will be running because Emily is not
wearing her boot........
And I am not walking while wincing in pain
from my heel!
