The One With The Trip To The E.R.

Well, yesterday was a pretty interesting. I was having some minor chest pain/discomfort on the left side that started in the morning. I first thought that maybe I just had slept weird. However, I wasn't having any pain or numbness in my left arm. I took some ibuprofen and went on with my day. After school was out, the pain and discomfort was still present. So, I decided to drive myself to the E.R. I told them what was wrong and was administered right away. I was hooked up to all kinds of crazy wires and things. I was also bombarded with questions. They did an EKG and some blood work. Luckily for me, it was not a problem with my heart. I did find out though that I have a sinus arrhythmia, but that was not the culprit and is not life threatening. It all ended up being a mix of anxiety and asthma. I was so relieved to hear all that. Now, they have me on Xanax and Singulair. I now have to make an appointment with my primary doctor. I'm very happy to find out that everything is okay. On to another topic. I looked at our calendar the other day and we only have 18 days of school left. Now, I'm trying to make lists of what needs to be done before the last day. I found this neat idea for an End-Of-The-Year binder. I found the idea over at Clutter-Free Classroom. It has been working pretty great so far. I have a calendar that I can write upcoming events, to do lists, and areas to hold important documents that I may need. It works great because it is all filed away in one place. I leave it on my desk while I'm at school and then put it in my messenger bag when I head home.
I separated the binder into 5 sections. First is a calendar for May and June. Next section is my to do lists, then paper work (which includes this I need for the end of the year but don't need to keep after school's out). My 4th section is my classroom set-up and last section is my inventory (including my personal items, tables, chairs, book cases, computers...etc.) Clutter-Free Classroom has a lot of the printables for free download. Others, I made myself. Well, I'm going to finish watching my DVDs of CSI and have a glass of wine. Enjoy your evening!
