Five For Friday: An Eventful Week {CAUTION: Not for the squeamish}

I'm linking up for the Five for Friday hosted by Doodle Bugs Teaching for the first time. This week was just too eventful to pass up! A word of caution... don't read this post if you're squeamish. 



1. I survived the biggest coastal storm of the year. It rained, and rained, and rained, and rained some more. The power went out for a good three hours. I don't have a photo of the storm, but I do have a picture of elk my friend and I found while driving in the storm :-) I counted about 22 elk total. Quite the sight!


2. My students made a pretty awesome city to display in our classroom! Read more about it {HERE}


3. Are you ready for the squeamish part?? I dislocated my knee while teaching and got to take my first trip in an ambulance! It was very painful, but it was actually pretty cool to look at! I watched the ER doctor pull it back into place (OUCH!) and wish I would've gotten a video of it! The ambulance ride was not too bad. The EMTs were so nice and made sure I was comfortable while on my way to the hospital.

 I can't go back to work until further notice, but I got to say hi to my kiddos and let them know I was okay. The poor dears had to witness the whole thing happen! I tried to keep teaching while the med aid was on her way to help me, but they knew something was up! 



4. I did manage to snap a selfie after my knee was snapped back into place. My first trip to the hospital was too monumental to pass up! AND, I was happy to be okay!





5. Now, I get to rest and prop my knee up at my parents' house. My mother was kind enough to drive me back to Portland so that I could have follow up appointments with my doctor. I don't know when I'll be able to go back to work, but I get to enjoy this beautiful view from my parent's house!! Lucky me (this is Mt. Hood)!!!!!



Told ya my week was crazy :-) How was your week??

  5. Get well soon! I have had knee surgery twice and find it annoying when I can't get anywhere on my own! On another note, I LOVE all the rain!

    1. I love the rain, too! I love to snuggle on the couch and listen to a storm.
      Not looking forward to the possibility of surgery, but will do whatever helps!
