I'm coming up for air! I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Only two more weeks with my students! It's been quite a journey and learning experience, all mostly good. It feels a bit like being totally entrenched in the daily goings on at the University and what they are learning (so I can stay on track and pretend I know what I'm doing), and now we're just smooth sailing til the end. I've also been orienting to a new area of the hospital (our ward closed down in the new hospital tower expansion and everyone got bumped around), so that I have somewhere to work next term and post- my knee surgery. I won't be teaching next semester and I kind of am a bit sad about that, so that's a good indication that I like it and hope to do it again.
Still no surgery date... Maybe I won't be couch surfing Christmas Day :)
Erin has the Crystal Ball coming up in early December, a Christmas dance for grade 12s, and after a once around our one and only mall, we realized we weren't going to find anything, let alone have it fit properly. So we've tackled a sewing project. We bought the most beautiful deep eggplant satin:
and have had so much fun sewing on this together. I won't show the finished product, because it's not done :) and we don't want to spoil the surprise. But this is what we're making. $32 later, what a deal!
School volleyball season is coming to and end, can I hear a collective sigh of relief? In Jacob's own words, "We lost, we lost EVERYTHING". He is especially happy, and Erin is just done. With club season just around the corner, we'll have a short break til January without driving someone somewhere EVERY week night. Plus, Erin is going for her Driver's License next week!! It will be nice to have another driver in the house, especially for her 6:30am practices. "Bye Honey, sorry I didn't get out of bed to say goodbye!"
