Last Day of Summer Vacation - it's been a tough one.

Today has been just awful, and it so happens to be the last day of summer break. I went in to school early to finish putting contact paper on my tables (I finally found some!) and it was pretty hot in my classroom. Normally the district has the AC on a system that shuts off during breaks and in the evening, but we can override it by hitting a button on the classroom unit. I hit the button and heard the AC start running, and it continued to run, and it continued to be hot. 15 minutes later it was still unbearably hot, I called the office manager who said "I'll call it in" meaning there was nothing we could do at our site about the problem. I tried to push through, but I was drenched in sweat and dripping, so I gave up and headed home.

So, I came home to work on the crate seats (you know that great project that has been all over Pinterest!) well, I was kneeling on the wood pieces as I stapled the fabric on so that I could get the fabric nice and tight. I took a break and just sat on the floor, then, as I am trying to get up I feel a pain in my leg/knee. I couldn't straighten it! And I still can't! If I try, the pain worsens. I'm hoping that ice will help, but I'm feeling like I might end up having to visit Urgent Care tonight. Oh joy!
