Not A Good Sign!

You know you really need that upcoming 3 day weekend when you find yourself standing outside your classroom door pressing the button on the key to your car that unlocks the car doors, and then for an instant wondering why the door isn’t unlocking, and then you hear a car horn beeping out in the parking lot and … well, you get the idea.

8:00 pm update: I guess this isn’t my day. After school I was prepping some Flickr samples for a presentation the staff at my school HAS REQUESTED (be still my heart). I had just sent a magazine cover and trading card to print, I pushed back on my chair to stand up and the next thing I knew my head was making contact with the corner of the concrete block wall behind me – an ambulance ride and 3 staples later I’m home feeling foolish but fine.

2-15-07 update – OK this is getting ridiculous – today I got a call that my wife had fallen at her school … hurt her knee … meet us at the hospital … x-rays show knee is broken …. URG!
Did I mention that my 3 year old Powerbook laptop died this week? (if it was a car it would have 500,000 miles on it) – it is in at Apple being fixed.

Teaching is messy!

  1. Brian,
    I’ve had days like this! Here is the flip side. We’ve had two days last week that our schools were closed, (due to sub-zero temps) and today and yesterday we have been closed due to the blizzard that hit our area! I am going stir crazy and I WANT to go to work!

    Also, I’ve wanted to tell you and your students that I applaud their sincere, genuine efforts on including their classmate while she’s at home. What a great way to integrate technology and inclusion of students! Kudos to all of you and keep up the good work!

  2. Wow! You’re like a walking accident waiting to happen! Remind me not to invite you to my next party…then again maybe you’d be the life of the party. Seriously, I hope everyone is ok and watch out for falling meteorites!

  3. It sounds like you need a week off. And maybe some tea and cookies. In a month i had a car accident (a first) , broken finger ankle, wrist and now have a coughing wheezing pneumonia brewing. And the back’s out. So they are calling me Raggedy Ann and sometimes Jerry Lewis. My old, old laptop is so awful I plan to save and save and work summerschool, again, to finally get something dated in this century. Hpe you recover quickly and with these accidents I pass along my Mom’s comment, better think if there’s a message. She always has something like that to drop in my lap. Sarah Puglisi
