Busy, Busy, Busy! October Recap

Well, it has been a busy couple of weeks since my last post. I survied the Master's class project. It really wasn't that big of a deal in hindsight, but of course we were keeners hoping to get it all done and looking sharp. I have attached some pictures of the event. Then there was Thanksgiving weekend. Mom made a delicious turkey dinner. This Thanksgiving was Andrei's first with all of us, and he fit in just perfectly. Turkey dinner was fantastic! Dinno, Lisa, Oma, Grandpa, and Grandma, all joined us as well. It was a fun evening. The following weekend was a baby shower for a girl I work with Riki. She had admired the paperbag album that I made for myself of my Arizona Trip so I thought that it would be fun to make a little baby brag book for her. She hasn't had her baby yet, so the challenge was making it gender neutral. But, I think I have managed this. I came on on Friday Night from school 9:00 and worked on the Album until 1;00 am in the morning. I had fun making it, and I miss working on projects. But, Julie and I have been making Scrap Dates every Friday night here at my house. She comes for dinner, and we usually watch a movie and scrap at my dining room table until the wee hours of the morning. We have been working on our Alaska photos. However, it is amazing how long ago that seems now, but it is fun to do the scrapbook because we are reliving the trip together and laughing at all our fun memories. Lots of homework to do, but this weekend I got caught up with housework, work stuff, and homework as Andrei is working night shifts this weekend. However, I did manage to go see Dan in Real Life it was a funny movie, a bit over the top in places but a good chick flick.

Looking forward to Halloween this week, as I have my costume all ready to go to for work. But, I will have homework this week, so not too sure if I will be able to have any Halloween festivities in the evening.

Marathon Friday!

Wow, was I ever exhausted on Friday night. I left work at the usual time around 7z;45, and didn't arrive home until 10:00p.m on Friday night. It was a very very busy day. The best part of the day was the fact that it was Pyjamma day, so I didn't have to worry about what to wear in the morning. However, I did have to bring clothes to change in for later.

I met with some other New West Teacher's, and we celebrated World Teacher's Day at the River''s Reach Pub in New Westminster. I finally got caught up with my friend Julia. I hadn't talk to her since July, and I haven't seen her since May I think. I almost didn't recognizer her. Unfortunately, she didn't see me at my most relaxed state, as I was tired and rushing off to meet Pam to work on our Master's assignment.

I arrived at Pam's at 5:30. Her place was a little difficult to find, but I got there no problem. We worked on our project unitl 9:30. However, it is all complete now. It is amazing that we didn't need today to do it. Once we got on a roll it was quite easy to do that is for sure. I am happy that it was complete all on Friday night, but when I got home I was exhausted. I went to empty the garbage, and then I said the heck with house work I am going to bed. I ended up sleeping 12hours, and contemplated having a nap today.

But, Julie and I were able to hang out the whole day. We had a marathon scrapbook shopping day, and then we had a marathon scrapbooking session at my house scrapbooking our Alaskan Cruise photos. It was great to have some good bonding time with my sister. I am just cleaning up the scrap supplies, and will be heading off to bed!

A Rush of Excitement!

Well, I arrived home from my Master's Class tonight quite excited. I am currently working on a project with another teacher in the class. She teaches highschool, and together we are learning about Instructional Design Opportunities in the Health Care System. It is quite exciting really. We have decided to step out of what we know and learn about another field. We have to present in a job fair type format for our next class wich is on the 15th, since Thanksgiving is on Monday, and we have no class that night. So, we are getting organized this Friday, and completing the project on Friday night and finetuning Saturday if necessary! I am looking forward to what the final product is going to look like. I am even going to be able to use some of my scrapbooking talents for the project. So cricutting will be happening. So, things are shaping up, we left really confident after we had time to discuss the project.

Off for a spot of tea and a little bit of TV. The Hills, and then off to bed!
