So, somethings I have learned from this whole experience... and how I can turn them into life lessons.
*You can only look forward, not worry about what's behind. People in the past will have to take care of themselves. Yes, figurative and literal... Driving has been a little hard since I can't turn my head to the right.
*Let other people help you. If they offer, let them. If they don't offer - ask. Ask for help. Ask for advice.
*It could be worse. After 4 days of suffering I finally called the advice nurse and she thought that this neck thing was related to possible heart problems since there is a family history. I got so scared thinking I was having a heart attack and not knowing it. She booked me an emergency appointment and got me right in to find out that it was "just a sprain".
*Healing is a process. I like fast fixes. I don't like things to hurt, and this neck thing had me in tears the last few days. Healing takes time and it will be worth it in the long run.
*I'm not superwoman. I can't do it by myself. I learned that the hard way.
Okay - enough about my neck - here's what I've been up to today:
Felt squares are great to use as whiteboard wipes. Each piece of felt created 6 rectangles. These kiddos are getting purple to use because Michael's had them for only 9 cents per sheet. I still need to add their classroom number with a sharpie, but they are basically done.
I started a new blog yesterday. You might have seen those Postcard Exchange sign ups going around - well, I decided to host a Virtual Postcard Exchange. It's called Classrooms Sharing Places, and it's a place for classrooms to learn about other areas of the world. There is also a page to sign up as interested in having a pen pal, sign the guest book, and templates to use if you want to submit your place.
My school work went outside this morning. Cutting lamination seemed to go a little quicker while watching my boys play with the neighbor kids down the street - they are those far dots.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
