I was supposed to have my wisdom teeth taken out 2 weeks ago, but I had a horrible cold and sore throat so I cancelled. I rescheduled for the first, tomorrow, but then last week the receptionist called and said the oral surgeon decided to go out of the country on vacation and she had to cancel all his appointments. And that he would be gone for 3 weeks. So the next day they can get me in is August 25th, which is a Thursday. Here's the dilemma - That week, we have PD Tuesday and Wednesday. We won't have any time in our classrooms. (We get one day the week before, although I could work more than that, plus Monday if I wanted/needed). The kids come back the next Monday. So if I get my teeth out, I will have Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun to recoop. My concern is, I don't just want to feel ok on Monday - I want to be playing my A GAME on the first day of school. Also, what if I have more work to do over the weekend or Thurs/Fri to get ready for school? What would you do? Under normal circumstances should I be wearing my game face on Monday? Able to give the beginning of the year spiel 7 times? (I am having all 4, none impacted, but I will be totally out.) If I don't do it that day, I will have to schedule during the school year and probably use sick days.
