Breast cancer, back to work
Wednesday, February 27, 2013
I am (if HR gets the paperwork right), going back to school next week after being out for chemo all semester. My students knew I was sick last semester, so it wasn't a surprise to them. I am planning on working the two days before spring break, sort out some serious grade issues with them, and then send them off with make-up work so we might have a graduating class. I am, however, nervous. I've never been gone from class more than 3 days, and I hear that there was absolute chaos when I first left (they made my sub cry, and I had to call my assistant principal to tell them that if they stayed on strike, I would fail them all). Any thoughts about going back? I need some wisdom from someone who has been there before.
On a dietary note, today has not worked out so well. My husband called to say that he had locked himself out of the car, with the ignition on, at the ice rink. Had to run out there, (30 minutes), unlock car, rush daughter home to get her to school. Hubby returned with an apology Starbucks, which doesn't say nonfat on it, but impossible to turn down. Am feeling sore and achy today, which I think is the extended workout yesterday, as I haven't had that as a side effect.
Anyway, enough whining. I'm going to go play with my puppy while I am still off.
