Long, over scheduled week. Unfortunately I spent most of the week being a responsible adult. Since I start getting ready for the end of the school year in April, I don't usually have much to do this week.
Today is about getting some final stuff signed off, making sure my students grades are in the school "grade book", and going to the faculty luncheon.
I had meetings most of the day Monday and Tuesday, and also went to the board meeting last night. So far, there is nothing about the award in the paper.
After the board meeting, life got weirder -- we were having heavy thunderstorms -- I keep telling everyone, it's no worse than usual, we just forgot them in the drought.
Anyway, a few cars in front of me, was a white convertible. It went out of control, and I got stopped with getting hit, but it went off the road, and landed into a drainage ditch with a huge splash. I called 911, and reported it, but no one else stopped. I couldn't see that they were getting any help, so I got off the road, and back on the exit. Still no one was there and they couldn't be seen from the road at that point, though there was an Dallas Fire and Rescue unit about a mile behind me, so I stopped the safest (relatively) place from them, got out of the car, ran to where they were at, pulled off my jacket and waved DF&R down. DF&R insisted I leave, so I took off. Fortunately they landed wheel side down, but water was up over the door handles.
So I feel really lucky AND sore today. Knee is bugging me, it isn't good to run on a bad knee in the rain.
