I felt terrible for calling off. it makes me feel even worse since i'm supposed to be filling in for a teacher who called off herself! i'm not one of those people that calls off work...it just doesn't happen! i tripped yesterday leaving school and somehow twisted my right ankle, scraped both knees (ripped a small hole in the one knee of my dress pants - and did i mention i somehow ripped a huge hole in the front crotch area sometime between getting dressed and 4th period - when i noticed it...THANK GOD I HAD A LONG FLOWING SHIRT ON) and then my left foot hurts too. i limped to my car. when i got home i moped around - iced my injuries - then took a hot bath before i went to bed. when i woke up this morning i could barely walk still! there is no way i was going to be on my feet all day while subbing (i was supposed to be in for elementary...maybe for HS or MS i could have managed, but those little buggers keep you on your toes). i called them up with my sad voice telling them my dilemma... it turned out that they were talking about me just before i called - the 4th grade has a picnic today and they weren't really going to need me anyways! funny how things work out!
