From: Snowflake, Arizona
Last Day at Pinon Middle School...
Final act of stupidity though - I got pressured during a break from today's final teacher planning retreat day to participate in a game of "Ultimate Frisbee" in the gym. I had avoided physical games all week because I just knew that if I started running around I'd screw up my knees, heels, or something and be in pain all summer.
Well, I tried playing goalkeeper... went up in the air to block a shot and got hit by a male teacher who knocked me about ten feet into a door post. Now I've got possible cracked ribs, two messed up knees, a hurting elbow, jammed fingers, and generally can barely move around or sit without extreme pain. Just when I need to pack and get ready for my move to the ranch!
Got a Worker's Comp form so might go to the hospital tomorrow for x-rays, but I suspect it will just be a matter of healing naturally as I don't think the pain is sharp enough to be an actual cracked or broken rib. I'm going to try and work through the pain and go down to Snowflake tomorrow as planned to spend the day learning about the solar and wind power systems and how to work and maintain everything. Hope I can do it!
Other than that, I checked out this afternoon and am officially no longer a teacher. School is over for me.
Love & Peace,

My old Piczo site seems to be gone, so no more Navajo Nation pics :(
