So, I’m normally a pretty happy person. I don’t let many things bother me and I try to look at the glass half full, but I’ll tell you tonight was just a darn struggle. It’s just been one of those weeks and it’s only Wednesday. If you read this little blog regularly than you’ll know that 3 weeks ago I fell at the most Magical place on Earth. The sweet doctor told me it was sprained, but could likely have a fracture that couldn’t be seen. She put a splint on my leg that went up to my neck. I kid you not! I was in tears, worried I had ruined our babies’ vacation. So instead of following her orders and not using my ankle, I tore off the splint, wrapped it up and walked 900 miles the next 5 days. Then I came back and taught for 3 weeks and It didn’t really hurt that much at all. But I decided that it was finally time to have it looked at, to make sure I didn’t do any damage. Well guess what teacher friends, this is my view from above:
In other news I have about one or two more days worth of work and my Punctuation Unit will be ready. If I could focus for more than 5 minutes, it might be done by now, but you all understand what May in “Teacher Land” looks like. Add a big old broken ankle, two baby boys, a dog and a husband and it’s a miracle I’m still even sane. Here’s a little peak at one of the activities that will included in the unit.

Rock that boot! Love the cute flip flop and toes next to it! I loved that you ripped it off and walked 900 miles…that was hilarious.
Oh no! That boot will definitely be a fashion emergency 😉 Hope it heals quickly!
I broke my ankle the day before we went to Disneyworld and didn't tell a soul – just went for 10 days and sucked it up. The day after we landed back home, I went to the doctor, got yelled at and was put in a lovely boot too. I'm so happy to hear I'm not the only stubborn person on earth, ha ha! I feel for ya! Lisa

Yikes! I say ditch the boot & just stay sitting (with the cute shoes on, of course!)
