  • Hang on a sec. Where’d November go?

    , , ,

    The last time I looked, I swear, it was just coming up on the end of October. I seem to have misplaced the first half of the month of November. Between halloween festivities, technical issues, medical issues and the back and forth and several other directions all of the above

  • Update of the mom variety.

    While I try to ignore the ass kicking we’re most likely to receive tonight, for the curious, have an update. Mom’s recovering faster than I thought she would, considering the surgery she had. A bit over a week since the operation, and she’s already up and moving a lot easier

  • Uncle for two?

    This family just keeps on growing. Amidst all the other insanity going around over here, I very nearly missed something that may be a little more than slightly huge. The sister-in-law is confirmed pregnant with number two. Their oldest, pictures of whom show up here occasionally, isn’t even 2 yet.

  • An update on the mommy condition.

    I’ve been back at the apartment for the weekend, catching up on things and taking advantage of a keyboard that doesn’t fit in the palm of my hand for a change, but here’s how things on the recovery front are looking for the curious. She had the IV taken out

  • A quick mommy update.

    She’s being moved to a room shortly, if she hasn’t been already. Recovery’s going better than it was earlier, though we still have no idea when she’ll be released. For the moment, though, she’s happy, healthy and in one piece, minus what they took out. More as I know it.

  • Miscellaneous medical mayhem and madness.

    As I made vague mention to yesterday, I’m at the parents’ place for at least the week. Sans a computer, but I’ve already pronounced the frankenputer dead or near it. What has me here is the aftermath of a major surgery. Mom went in early this morning, and as of

  • Fun, family and festivities, oh my!

    , , , ,

    Okay, so escentially since Friday life’s been kind of non-stop. But I’ve been meaning to start this update before then, so we’ll get to that in a minute. I had a meeting with the ODSP person who’s heading up the purchasing of a copy of the screenreader I’ll be using

  • My non-gamer parents prove me wrong. And this time, I’m not cringing.

    ,

    Remember that Wii I predicted wouldn’t get much use, on account of neither of my parents are really that much into the whole gaming scene? And, since unless you’ve achieved uber geek status, not being a gamer probably demotes the Wii from gaming system to glorified PC with a TV

  • Happy birthday, Aidan!

    ,

    The only relative of mine currently unable to read this blog anytime in the near future officially turns 1 today. And holy crap has he managed to grow like a bad weed. He’s dangerously close to standing on his own, and as long as he has something to hold onto

  • Fun and amusement at fiddle fest.

    , , ,

    I’ve written a couple entries referencing the anual fiddle festival held up at Pembroke’s Riverside park every September around labour day. On a random wim, the parents and I decided to shuffle over there tonight to see what we could find for entertainment. And, as often happens, we found exactly
