Happy Back to School Season.

It is the weirdest feeling in the world knowing I don't have to return to work tomorrow.  Knowing all my coworkers will be starting up again without me is such an odd feeling. How dare they continue their day to day lives while I'm away on sick leave? Can they really function without me? D'uh, of course they can because if they can't, they are screwed! Tomorrow will be the first time in 21 years I am not going back to work. What? You heard me right. 21 years with the school division and tomorrow I don't have to go. This is one of the advantages of having 23 weeks of sick time saved up. I figure I will use September to get physically and emotionally ready for surgery. Also, there's this 2 week period before surgery where I have to stop taking my meds. Another problem is if I get sick, the surgeon may cancel my surgery.... No way in hell. I work in a school and September is germ month. I don't even want to risk it! 

Sorry friends and coworkers. You will have to go on without me (suckers).  

My hip has been feeling kind of wonky these days. (Ok, more so than normal.) I was doing my wall squats and I swear my hip (butt) kept swerving to the left.  That probably makes no sense to you guys but when I told my athletic therapist that, he kind of nodded and reminded me that we are at the point where we just have to make it through to surgery. After surgery, we have plans.  Recovery plans.  Recovery and get better than ever plans! This is exciting shit! I'm calling it my new lease on life!

In the mean time, anyone know where I can get one of these?

  1. I remember the first school year after I quit teaching preschool to write full time. It was so strange to not to be making plans and greeting students.
