Hearing how many of you went back to work at 3 and 4 weeks makes me feel wimpy! I had so many sick and annual days saved up over the years that I felt this was the time to take them. However, I don't want my fellow administrator to read this blog and see how tough all of you are!

I saw my doctor yesterday and he said all was healing well. He asked if I wanted to go back any earlier and I said that I thought I would like to go back at 5 weeks. He gave me permission but only for half days the first week and 'light duty'. He said no lifting or restraining middle schoolers for me.!!! We are hosting the county basketball tournament each night that week, so I now the P I work with will be very glad to have me there. Trying to only do half days will be the hard part when it would normally be a 7:00 am to 10:00 pm day!

We ended up with a four day weekend. The weather was so cold for TN that most of the middle area counties called off school. First time for that since I have been here (16 years). Good for the kids' bodies but writing assessments are just around the corner...

I also scheduled my surgery for the winter break. My doctor wanted me to have it back in September, but it was just easier for me to wait. It made it were Im only going to miss 4 weeks of work instead of 6 and my husband was off for the holiday so he was able to be at home with me and take care of the kids. It was wonderful to have him by my side when I needed it the most.

Seger4me - I don't think you are wimpy!!!! I think our bodies just heal at different rates. My sister had a hyst and had to take off for 6 weeks. She is no wimp, she just wasn't ready to go back. I don't think she was a wimp. I think it also depends on how the surgery was performed. She had the 5 insions in her belly (not sure what that is called), I had it through the vajayjay. I feel very, very fortunate that I was able to go back to work. Please, please don't think that I am trying to brag that I am back at work or that you are wimpy!

Hugs!

I made it for four hours today and then went and did some school shopping. I love putting little notes and gifts on my teacher's desks and I needed Valentine's Day confetti....I don't leave gifts, EVER, without confetti! It makes everyone crazy, including the cleaning crew....but THAT is part of the fun...making them CRAZY!!
I stopped at the grocery store after that and made someone pick up a case of Coke for me....I took care of myself for just a moment by not picking it up, but felt guilty as heck not picking up this coke....I just need to get over it!

My 10th grade students wanted me to come see a project they had been secretly working on...I just didn't have the strength to walk all the way across campus to see it so they pushed me in the nurse's wheelchair...they were so sweet and the project is amazing!! I love my job!!

While I was out, I had a terrible sub - little more than a warm body babysitting my kids. They HATED her. My room was a wreck and she literally robbed me blind! The children said they saw her put things in her "wagon," which is a rolling crate. She took every pack of pencils I had (a year's supply), all of my post-it notes, 25 Ben Franklin erasers (I purchased them as fun incentives for our electricity unit), and 24 packs of colored map pencils. I still find stuff missing every week, can you believe it? She BLEW A WHISTLE IN THE CLASSROOM TO GET THE KIDS QUIET!!!!!

So today, my students were really acting up (5 days of inside days due to the cold - yuk!) and I had given warning after warning. Finally, I just went to the door and said, that's it! You guys do not appreciate me at all. I'm leaving and I'm going to tell the principal to call Ms. --- back! Then I walked out the door!

I peeked back through the window and you should have seen my kids' expressions! When I walked back in, they were so relieved, they worked without a peep the rest of the day and we got ALL of our work finished in record time!

Principal - I luuuuvvv my job, too, and I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else!

You ladies be careful going back to school. You may be feeling better, but you are still recovering. My docs said it would take a full 6 months to be completely healed inside. I am at 5 months and I am feeling fine, but boy, was I tired for a looooooonnnnng time!


P.S. I was named my building's Teacher of the Year today. This, even after missing the 1st eight weeks of school!
