I wish I was a person that could put it all behind me and leave it at the office, but I'm just not. I feel so much like everyday is a lesson in humility...and while I am great at making them think that they've won... it eats at me. I can't even relax sometimes when I come home and take a bath or veg in front of the television... because I sit there and stew about it in my mind. I am so ready to quit!! That will be a truly beautiful day!
I signed up for my certification exam today - it will be on February 14th at 6PM. I will end up taking that day and the day after off - I have an appointment with my surgeon on the 15th anyway. My studies for the exam will begin either tonight or tomorrow - as I now need to learn a lot about english, reading, math, social studies, science, health, music, and physical education for kindergarden through 4th grade. It's been a long time! I've got lots to brush up on!
I did get some scrapbooking done today - in hopes that it would take my mind off of my headache... as if the mind over matter stuff works, but I had to try. I ended up getting the beginning of the book completed... so I'm pretty excited about that!
This page is basically a journal entry about all of the hurdles I had to jump over before the surgery.
This page talks about the actual surgery and shows the photo of my insicions from right after I got home. I wish I would have gotten John to take a picture or two of me at the hospital - he had the camera...but it never occured to me.
That pretty much sums up my day... we're still waiting to hear how Meghan's surgery went - her sister is supposed to update her blog today. I'm sure that it went great, but it will be good to hear how she's officially doing from her family.
