    I'm going to be working with a new Home Instruction Student. I met him and his mother in the morning and then stopped at the High School and talked with several teachers and the VP.

    Lunch:


    After lunch (on the VP's suggestion) I went back to the school to talk to the teacher that is teaching the same subject as my Home Instruction Student. The VP suggested I ask for some lessons. The teacher was quite blunt and rude and said "Why should I give you any content? If you don't know how to teach it, you shouldn't have gotten the job." So I told the VP what he said. The VP was surprised.

    Then I spent the afternoon on the combine.

    Around 5 Farmer's friend came out to the field so I let him play with the combine and I walked home.

    After supper:


    Daughter had a band concert. She drove herself there early and I arrived in time for the concert.
    My Farmer kept combining.

    Then Daughter and I headed into London for a 10:30 pm indoor soccer game. Yes, 10:30pm.
    We stopped at $tarbucks before the game.


    That's Daughter wearing her new orange shoes.

    There was an indoor track and I walked around it. For the lengths I walked up on the track and when I got to the ends I walked down the stairs and across the ends and then back up the stairs.



    I walked from 10 to 11:15pm,when my Daughter got hurt on the field and had to be carried off!! She hurt her knee Her good knee. (2 years ago she'd tore her ACL playing soccer) They iced it and then had to carry her to the car. We called Surfer Son and he went to my parent's house and found the crutches in the garden shed and waited up for us to help bring her inside. Of course she had to shower and it was about 1am by the time I got to bed.

      Was a beautiful warm day! 20C

      Daughter couldn't put any weight on her foot, but she wanted to go to school in the morning, so I drove her in. I called the Fowler Kennedy Sports Clinic (where she went for her ACL repair) and left a message. I was supposed to supply teach from 11:30 - 2 so I made an early lunch (or late breakfast) at 10 (the same thing as Wednesday) I just finished eating when the clinic called me back and said they could see her at 1:15. I called the school and cancelled my supply job and txt'd my Daughter with the news.

      Of course, we hadn't changed our OHIP or driver's license addresses yet, so we had to stop and do that first.

      The doctors poked and moved her leg and X-rayed it. And they are not sure what's wrong. It could be one of two things. Either a patellar subluxation or an ACL tear. Oh boy. They want her to start physiotherapy and come back in 2 weeks for a reassessment when the swelling has gone down.

      Daughter is understandably upset, but doesn't want to talk about it.

      We stopped at my chiropractor's on the way home and my back felt awesome when I left her Before supper I sat out in the Butterfly pen with a glass (or 2) of wine.

      Supper was leftover roast and roasted veggies. I took the Farmer's out to him on the combine on my way to play practice.

      Someone brought gummy worms to play practice and the tub was sitting right in front of me

      Guess what happened???

      After practice I was invited to the local bar for a drink. I went. But I only had one glass of wine.

      • Friday

        It's Eldest's birthday today!!!

        Daughter's friend picked her up for school.
        I was a Farm Girl again this morning. Driving combine. In the cold drizzling rain. What a change from yesterday. At lunch time we stopped and SIL and BIL stopped at the barn and we talked for about a half hour. My back was starting to bother me standing on the cement floor in the barn. I kept shifting legs and tried raising one foot and then the other on a step. But it didn't help. By the time I got to the car my back was screwed again.

        I went home and called the chiropractor, but she'd left for the day. So I laid on the floor with my legs bent up. It helps. A bit. I am SO TIRED of my stupid back

        Lunch was the same as yesterday.

        My Farmer stayed home and helped me! We unpacked all the dining room boxes and put the things away. Including my 18 wine glasses He carried laundry for me. Vacuumed the carpets for me

        Oh AND while the Butterflies were out in their pen, they started barking like crazy and running around. I looked out and there was a raccoon sitting in the field about 15 feet away from their pen!! I thanked them for telling us and called them inside, telling them that it was a raccoon and we'd take care of it.

        Well, my Farmer took care of it

        Daughter iced her knee at school a couple of times today. She fell asleep when she got home. And tonight she went to the school Halloween dance. She was dressed like a cave girl with crutches. She can touch her foot to the floor now a little. She still doesn't want to "talk about it"

          • So, because I was curious, I wrote down the number of views my thread had last night after my posts.

            59707

            This morning at 10am the number was

            59826

            ~~~

            119 people read my journal last night
            Wow
            That amazes me


            Who are you?
            Please introduce yourselves, say Hi or something.

            Of course, I'm guilty of the same.
            There are multiple journals I read but never comment on.
            And journals I read and comment on but would love to post more often...



            It's dark, raining and 6C out this morning and my back still hurts and the cleaning fairy didn't do last night's supper dishes...

                • Saturday

                  Cold, wet, rainy, dreary day

                  I should have gone to help with a costume sale with the local theater group

                  But I stayed home instead.

                  My back was still bad and I didn't think a morning of standing out in the cold on a pavilion cement floor would improve it.

                  ~~~~

                  Last night the cats knocked over a package of stewing beef that was thawing for the pets.
                  Lily found it this morning and ate about 3/4 of the package and then tried to guard the rest of it.

                  Guess what eating too much meat does to a little dog????

                  I cleaned up two messes and Lily had to have two "butt baths"
                  Which she loves (not)

                  ~~~

                  I managed to wash the dining room, kitchen and bathroom floors without hurting myself!
                  I went to town for more carpet cleaning stuff, whipping cream and some wine.
                  Then I searched on-line for some content for the Home School course I'm teaching.
                  While drinking mead.

                  We were supposed to go to a friend's tonight, but she begged off with a headache.
                  So it looks like a quiet evening with the computer and maybe a horror movie ('tis the season)

                  Daughter is putting weight on her leg. Walking slowly around without the crutches.
                  She's going to a Halloween party tonight. As a cat.

                  Eats:
                  Chai with whipping cream
                  Cheeses (Brie, Mozzarella, Cheddar) and left over roast beef
                  1/2 bottle of mead
                  Peameal bacon, scrambled eggs, small portion of hashbrowns

                  Whipping cream with raspberries
                  Chai with chocolate and whipping cream

                  • I can see I need to visit here more often for food ideas. Yeah, who am I kidding? I need more food ideas? I need to padlock the kitchen!

                    Seriously, I'll be over to finish the other half bottle of mead.

                            Cold rainy blah pj day.

                            I took the Butterflies for a walk and I needed a toque and mitts
                            So not ready for that!

                            I worked on the curriculum for my Home Instruction student and surfed the net.

                            Wine
                            pistachios and a tiny wedge of Brie
                            Roast Chicken, roasted carrots, cauliflower and red peppers
                            Drinking Chocolate (whipping cream and shaved 85% chocolate with a little salt and cinnamon)

                            I think I'm going to go have a soak in my cast iron tub...

                              • Blah sort of day here too. And it didn't even get above freezing today! Not ready for that either. I need to retire to someplace that stays warm all year. We've actually started discussing Costa Rica. Had a fabulous holiday there 7 years ago...

                                I must have missed that part about your daughter's diagnosis from her knee re-injury. Not so good, no wonder she's bummed.

                                The bath sounds like a great idea. I considered it too, but am actually too lazy tonight to bother, haha.
