January brought us our first snowfall of the year, but it also became my first (and hopefully ONLY) injury of the year. After I finished shoveling my front steps and sidewalk, I slipped and fell, very painfully dislocating my right shoulder! It took 2 doctors 3 attempts and 4 hours to get it back in place! Not something I EVER want to experience again. (Gives me a good excuse to never shovel again, right?)
Consequently, I'm confined to a sling that immobilizes my arm for the next 3 weeks. I have a wonderful team of musicians at church who have graciously stepped in to fill some of my responsibilities (Thanks Val, Kyle & Joy!) and last week I cancelled all my lessons to give myself a week to recoup.
My lessons will be more guiding and lots of left hand only demonstrating, but I have such great students and parents that I have no doubt that we can make this work.
Blogging may be sporatic for the next few weeks since pecking with my left hand (I'm right-handed!) is a slow process, but I have some new games and activities I've been working on and want to share with you so stay tuned!
