Max's face looks like it's covered in boogers. He was very upset when he realized that's how the picture turned out. He wants to make sure everyone knows it's snow. It's SNOW!
Max loves stuffed dogs more than just about anything. There's hardly room for him in his bed.
For some reason when I changed the size of this picture, it turned us wider. Now we kind of look like midgets with giant heads. I don't care for it much. Anyway, that's my room. It's a bed and nothing else. I gave the kids the bigger rooms and I sleep in what could almost be considered a closet.
There's our living room. There's still Christmas stuff everywhere, which I can't stand. Clutter makes my head hurt.
Max, Corina, and I all have knitting knobbys (knobbies?) now. We're making long yarn ropes. I have no idea what we'll do with them.
There you go. It's like you spent the morning with us. Did you have fun?

This is just a picture of Corina and me because she's cute and I invented her.
And that picture is there because Corina took it, and because I was surprised to see how long my nose is. My nose is that long? Really? Really???
I love having this camera. And I made the pictures smaller. Did you notice? Thanks for teaching me, Mike.
Here's where we live. Almost everyone I know has never seen my house. That's weird. Hello, Ontario people. I live here. It would be nice if someone in my family would come visit us sometime.
Corina was trying to help me figure out how to work the new camera. Figuring out these things isn't my strength, and apparently Corina found it quite boring.
While Corina and I were working hard, Max and his buddy Skyler were upstairs playing Dragons. That's what they've done every day since Christmas. I suppose it's because they're boys.
Yay for digital cameras! Also in the package from Laurie is a portable USB 2.0 SD card reader. I have no idea what it is, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. I can't seem to find a use for it yet, but it's probably important.

There's big sister Lizzy with baby Hayden. I stole that picture from Vicky's blog. She'll probably have me arrested.

Corina's favourite food has been tomatoes ever since she was a baby. Vicky grows tomatoes right outside her door. That keeps Corina from running away.
Look how much Max loves his sister! And how much his sister loves tomatoes.
And there's Lizzy. She's in my nursery at church, and holy is she smart. And cute. I'm considering kidnapping her.
I believe I'll be getting my very own digital camera quite soon, and then you'll be seeing pictures all the time. Hourly, maybe.

Field Placement A+
Interpersonal Communications A+
Human Development A+
Observation and Assessment A+
Role of the Special Needs Educational Assistant A
Damn that last mark. She gave everyone low marks on our last assignment because too many people were going to get A's. (It was our easiest class by far.) She stole my A+. I don't like plain A's at all.

And the other thing is he looks just like Doogie Howser, and Doogie isn't known for being the sexiest man in the world. (Is he??) Doogie is completely being ripped off, because if I can't even tell the difference between him and the fourteen year old, shouldn't NPH be getting more attention? I realize he's not looking for attention from the ladies, but then I have my doubts about Justin, too.
I'm supposed to be studying right now.

Anyway, he thinks it's quite possible the enlarged temporal horn they found in her MRI five years ago is causing the problem today, and he referred us to another doctor. Thankfully he didn't brush us off or just try to give her medication. I'm just waiting for that doctor to call with our appointment time now. Waiting. And waiting. And waiting.
Corina's having a nap beside me right now. Eight seizures since Friday - the kid is awfully tired. That's hard work.
Tuesday, December 12, 2006
She said, "Well sucks to be you. I'm sleeping in your bed and I'm having a seizure."
Monday, December 11, 2006
If things continue on as they are, she's probably going to have to go on medication for her seizures. Those medications are truly horrible. A lady in my ward does energy healing, and as weird as I think that is, I think I'll give it a shot before I drug my little baby.
Now I'm asking questions. Have any of you guys tried it, or do you know someone who tried it, or have you heard of it, or do you want to buy me a Christmas present? Tell me what you think about the voodoo.

And while we're not on the topic - Corina didn't have a seizure today. Yay!

"Mommy! That's the boy who hit me in the balls with his face!"
I've been laughing for over 24 hours now.

moves through the wind
like candlelight, all flicker and flutter.
I’m amazed she touches the earth
when she walks – I secretly
believe her footsteps
are clever forgeries.
She saved me from my
lonely walk. I had been stumbling
for years, one more missed step
and I would have shattered into a thousand
worming pieces. She resurrected me.
My knees have grown supple
from my dreaming of her.
My husband will write something like that to me when we're old, I bet. He's going to love me a ton.

There's a guy I see around town now and then who has a fake leg. He always looks drunk and a little scary, and I've seen him pick up cigarette butts from the curb and smoke them. He's dapper. Anyway, he has never acknowledged my existence before. Today when I hobbled by him, he gave me a huge smile and said hi to me as though we're best friends. He's in my club too.
There was a young guy on the bus with a broken foot the other day. When I got on, I sat across from him in the gimp section. I asked him if he wanted to be in my club. He didn't say anything, but the old lady who was sitting near us thought I was damned funny. I thought so too.

Max was telling me about his grade one book buddy. He is cognitively impaired. That's the term for it, so don't call him dumb. Also, gifted and talented is the term for smart these days, if you didn't catch that. Max said, "We had to draw pictures of each other, so I drew him, and he drew a cat."
I love that story.
About my foot - my friend pushed me around the college in a wheelchair today because my spaghetti arms are too weak to use crutches for that long. I'm such a baby. And my massive air walker cast is incredibly sexy.
Wednesday, November 01, 2006
Anyway, I just told Corina that normally right now I'd be getting on the bus to come home from school, but since I didn't go to school I could be home earlier. I said, "Is having a broken foot a good reason to skip school?"
She responded, "It's better than hepatitis."
She's five, by the way.

If a bomb just happened to kill nearly everyone around her, that would be the perfect school environment. There are so many people who need to be blown up.
And psychology class is neato!

Anyway, I have a huge psychology test tomorrow, and I'm worried I won't get perfect on it. Pray for me. I must be perfect always or I will hate myself.

They can probably fix my ears with some wacky combinations of this and that. I shall hear again!
