Summer Daze

Ahhhh sweet summer work, no responsibilities, great weather...what more could I ask for?

I'm bored.

I stay up way too late, then sleep way too late. I'm such a slacker. If slacking was a sport I would soooo medal! Like, GOLD medal.

Here's a picture of my cutie roommate. I take a lot of pictures these days.

Oh wait!! I did go to a concert the other night! Kathy took me to see The Tragically Hip and we had 4th row, center seats!! It was an awesome concert and my only little taste of Stampede. Holy cracked-out white trash cowgirls batman! They were everywhere!

Kathy and I after the concert.

Where does the time go?

I can't believe it but school is over in 2 weeks! Here is a lazy-girls version of an update:

  • I'm watching a 90210 re-run right now and I'm not ashamed of it

  • I have no idea what I'm teaching next year, or where, and it's driving me nuts

  • My sister and nephews are going to Powell River for 3 weeks, I'm going to be so bored!

  • In Aug. I'm going to visit Kirstin and Joey in Toronto for a week!

  • I love Facebook

  • I've been shopping for real estate, I feel so grown up!

  • Wylie turned 3 last weekend and we had a great party at Bowness Park (I'll post a few pictures from the 315 I took)

  • Last week I received the best care package from Katy and Craig. You guys ROCK! I'll never tire of random weird Japanese stuff!

  • Almost the entire month of July is open for me. I really should get a job...

  • Slushie mixed with soft ice cream is the greatest treat after a long, hot day at work

  • Grade 9 grad is in a week and a half, it should be fun to see my kids all dolled up (one guy plans to have a top hat and cane)

  • My baby, Caitlin...oops....I mean, Kathy's baby Caitlin, is a little doll! She's such a good baby and is so easy going

  • I am addicted to buying fabric. I have a plan for every piece of fabric I buy, I just don't actually get around to making everything, then I go out and buy more's my new crack cocaine

A Trip to the Alberta Children's Hospital

Last week my little nephew, Cobin, became very sick with a virus called RSV. All kids get it, but only 0.5%-2% require hospitalization. The poor little guy had to have oxygen, a heart monitor, an IV in his arm (then head, then foot), two other thingies attached to his chest, a catheter to collect a urine sample, a spinal tap, and countless blood tests. He was in the ICU for one night, and then moved upstairs for two more nights. My sister is still breastfeeding so she had to be there at all times. It was very stressful and scary but he is fine now. He lost his voice from the oxygen and has bruises from the countless needles, he even has a little bald spot on his head from being shaved for the IV (he barely has 2mm of hair!). We are very lucky be so close to the brand spanking new Children's Hospital. It is an amazing hospital, I highly recommend it!

Here are some pictures, taken after we knew everything was going to be ok. He is off the oxygen in these photos but still hooked up to an IV (in his foot), and the heart monitor (attached to his little toe).
