Happy Cinco de Mayo!

And a Happy Mother’s Day this coming Sunday!! Hopefully this is my last week at home on leave for a broken tailbone (four weeks total). It feels weird to be home as I feel like I should be at work… While home I have relaxed and taken it easy (the first couple of weeks I was really careful to not move wrong and to not sit for hours, per doctor’s instructions), walked progressively farther and longer as things felt better/less painful, done some gardening, and now some painting in our master bathroom.

Figured it was good to try and get back to normal since this is “week six” since the accident. Tailbone feels good and doesn’t hurt to touch, so I should be released back to normal work at my appointment this Friday.

Actually, there are only three more weeks of school for this 2020-2021 school year, and next year I will be working with a Pre-K class. I was sad to be leaving PABS at first, but now I am kind of excited for the upcoming school year. A new challenge and a new school. So that will be something fun to look forward to this next school year!

Meanwhile, we received the permit to move our fence! We can only move it out by 3 feet, since the curve of our property line at its closest is 3′ away from the current fence, but it will still add more visual space to the sideyard and 240 sq. feet to the yard for gardening… Time to get digging post holes!

I am Barbara Chapman and I’d love it if you’d follow me here on my blog and on any of my other social media sites, too.  Thank you!💜

  4. Oh Barb, thanks so much for the feature this week! What a lovely surprise to brighten my day! I am so glad that your fence permits are all in order and you are recovering from your broken tail bone. I broke mine way back when I was in high school and it is really no joke! Sending you lots of healing vibes!


  5. Hi Barb- Hope you’re feeling well and recovering. Take your time and take care of yourself. Congrats on the extra 3 feet. That’s a lot for a side yard so it should make a noticeable difference. Have a wonderful Mother’s Day and thanks for hosting. XO- MaryJo

  6. Thank you so much for featuring my garden scrub, Barb, I really appreciate it. It was super easy to make and smells amazing too. Thank you for hosting each week and giving us a fun place to hang out. I’m so glad you’re feeling bettter and back on the mend. Hugs and thank yous, CoCo

  7. So glad you will be able to return to work and are healing! Honestly, I’m amazed at your level of activity with the injury. Three and a half weeks ago my right bursar all of a sudden became all inflamed. As a result, I’ve been barely able to walk without a lot of pain. Had to wait until yesterday for a steroid shot (because needed 3 weeks since my 2nd Covid shot). And, I’m going to have to go back for therapy for a “realignment.” I’ve been down in the dumps after all the months of sitting on the couch since last October after my left foot surgery. Gotta get going so I can train the puppy to walk on a lease!

    1. Debbee, it wasn’t easy. I HATE having to do nothing, so I was quietly doing a few things but taking it really slowly. Like finishing the brick laying that first week out in the yard. Turns out the tailbone that we all think of was fine, it was the larger bone it attached to that was fractured on one side. It is healing but not fully healed so I am going to have to be really careful here at work. Today is my first day back (5/10), so here’s to the last 3 weeks of the school year! Really though, I was so distraught all winter from first the Covid, then just work and the constant changes there (plus erratic student behaviors), I was really depressed. Gardening and just prayer and getting closer to God really has helped! I hear you with having to sit quietly…The bursa in my right hip has hurt off and on for close to a year (it was because I had worked up to 20 miles/week walking; it didn’t like it.). I’ve been taking walking less and it seems to be better. 🙂 Hope your bursa heals soon! Keep icing and take Mr. Pup on short walks, which is what he needs anyway until his hips fully develop at about a year old. That’s per my mom who was a dog trainer after she retired from Special Ed. 🙂

      Have a great week and Ill chat with you soon,
      Barb 🙂
