Captain's Log, Man Down

So today was just an average day... the kids were all doing the usual, working along, when out of nowhere, I tripped over a backpack and went flying across the room.
I don't think I have ever fell as hard as I did today... and seeing as I have fallen out of planes, that means a lot.
I was on the ground for a while, with little reaction from the kids, and finally picked myself back off the floor in time for another three hours of teaching.
I ended up limping around the building and sat down to my lunch break with ice packs on both of my knees.
I have been cursing the man who invented stairs and tried to relax at home taking extra care not to move too much.

Tomorrow I'll be off at a tech conference, which should thoroughly convince the class that I broke both my legs...
So I definitely made the most of my one day school week...
I hope that the next one is a little less painful...
I now understand why all the other classes are no bag zones, and it was also brought to my attention that that policy should go double for a tech room with lots of pocket sized equipment...

Good times.

In other news, I had a nice time spending my weekend in Bend, near Sun River, where I had the opportunity to spend time spelunking in caves and celebrating Juliet's derby birthday.
We ended up covering Owen's 5 bedroom mansion in Justin Beiber posters and accomplishing all house related tasks in skates...
It was a good time.
We even made sure to make use of the giant triangle out on the front porch by sending everyone out to the font yard to pretend they were working (which amounted to picking up pine cones) until Diana rang the bell, at which point we all started yelping and cheering like hillbillies and stormed into the house for breakfast, further cementing the deep hatred we were feeling from the neighbors...
