Can you ever just be whelmed?
I think you can in Europe?
- •I, however, am overwhelmed.
- •It's the last full week of school, so that means I'm frantically trying to finish everything I need to teach, complete my evaluation portfolio, do all the end of the year things without going crazy, start a new season of cheerleading, and, oh yeah, keep the 7th graders even kind of sane.
- •On top of that, I finally went to the doctor today for the knee pain I've been dealing with since January.I'm gun shy on knee problems. The last four times I went to the doctor with knee issues, I had to have surgery.
- •So guess who's having more surgery? This girl!
- •It's just a "small surgery" (still will have be on crutches for several days, etc) to determine if I need a big knee surgery.And the "big" knee surgery that's on the table is pretty big. Possible meniscus transplant.
- •Oh, and did I mention my refrigerator decided now would be a great time to stop working?So I just got to throw away all the food I had I there. And somehow fit an appliance repair appointment into a week with a doctor's appointment, a staff council meeting, a cheer parent meeting, an MRI, and another doctors appointment?
- •And there's other stuff, but I feel silly mentioning it.Let's just say it has to do with this.... A FEW OF THE WAYS HE'S KILLED ME
- •So.... My venting is now over. From now on, I move forward with positivity and gratitude.
- •I can afford to eat out while my fridge is broken.
- •I have a financial safety net to fall back on, for help with both the fridge and the surgeries should I need it.
- •My mom has already said she will come to Indy to help me when I have the surgery, no matter when it is.
- •My colleagues and I are all in the same boat work-wise, and they're so supportive and helpful.
- •In the grand scheme of health problems, knee issue are not that big of a deal.
- •And so, the balance swings back to.... whelmed.Even though I'm not in Europe.
