Of course, I see a lesson here. No matter where you end up in life, do what you were meant to do. Not only bloom, but produce fruit!
The doctor said I just missed the fascia (connective tissue that surrounds muscle) on my head that would have caused a big bruise on my eye and cheek. Bummer. Now, I won't get a bunch of sympathy on the first day back. :) But at least I will still look pretty.
I didn't do any damage to my shoulder or knee other than the bruise and scrapes. The Lord was watching over me when I fell for sure. A bruised ego, and some soft tissue damage and a headache and that's about it. I'm having the hardest time with resting. I don't know what that word means! I have so much to do and just sitting still is the worst. I'm sure there is a lesson here too, but I haven't learned it yet.

|You can see the bruise starting to form above my glasses line. This was yesterday afternoon.|
Yesterday was orientation for my son at high school. My baby is now a freshman. I took him a little early and I was going to stay the day and help out where needed. I planned to spy on him throughout the day. He jumped out of the car and took off across campus saying he was going to go to the gym to meet with friends. I went to my classroom to drop off my stuff and then headed to the gym to find him.
|This was from this morning. It is a little darker and much more sore to the touch. The swelling has gone down.|
I headed to the office and saw the Vice Principal, who had asked me to stop in to talk to her. I'm the department chair this year, so we have been talking a lot, but still getting called into the principal's office is never fun!
I turned to say hi to her and then a student called my name. I turned a little more to see who it was calling me and wasn't looking where I was going. I tripped over some uneven pavement and was going a little too fast to catch myself and everything started going in slow motion! I could feel myself falling and couldn't do anything about it.
|today the bruising starts and boy it is sore!|
They sent me home with some ibuprofen and told not to go to work for 3 days. Isn't it convenient that I don't start work until Monday?
I'm really sore today and have whiplash. This big old head is really heavy.
I think I'm ready to have normal now please.

If you haven't see the video of the rescue yet, it's pretty incredible. The Vacaville police department released body camera video showing how they got the animals out before the fire got to the shelter. None of the buildings were burned, but they lost power and the smoke was really bad.
Here's the link to the video.

The repair guy came out in the afternoon and found this beauty in the compressor outside. He had been electrocuted. Probably quite some time ago by how dried out he was. No wonder the air conditioner has been acting up.
The guy was able to partly fix the air conditioner. He's coming back on Friday to fix the part upstairs. What's $3000? At least we will be cool again!
Plus, the duct work needs to be replaced. The guy said there were a bunch of dried up rats in the attic too. Living next to a field is nice, but it's an open invitation to the wildlife to come party in the attic. We will probably put off the duct work for a couple of months, until it cools down a little.

We've also had a ton of lookie-loos come by. I guess it is pretty exciting. We even had a company come by hoping to get our business. They do fire restoration. The guy asked if our house smelled like smoke. Well, sure. He asked if we were going to do anything about it or just live with it. I guess everyone has to make a living somehow, but wow, way to take advantage of people.
I sure hope things calm down, at least for a little bit.
