I know it's been over a week since I posted last. I guess with the onset of the nice weather life has gotten a tad busier than before. It seems that there are more assignments that are coming due, more parties for the kids to attend as things are wrapping up for another year, more recitals and concerts, more class trips, not to mention that my gardens have been screaming my name and I couldn't ignore them any longer. Whew! I'm living proof that life for a stay-at-home-mom is just as busy and tiring as my work-outside-the-home couterparts.
I've also had some health issues lately as I recently discovered that I am severly anaemic. My feritin level (which in a normal person is around 300) is a whopping 3! Yes, that's right. Hey, at least I'm still in the possitive, LOL! When the Dr. phoned to tell me this she asked me how I could possibly function. "Are you not tired?" she asked. "Ummmm .... yeah, I'm a mother! I'm always tired." "Well," she said, "you shouldn't even be able to get out of bed!" Somehow, after I got off the phone with her, I felt exhausted all of a sudden. Since then, I've discovered that people with thyroid conditions (I have Grave's Disease) have problems with iron absorption. Why didn't I know this before now????
I finally got some pictures back of our trip to Ottawa. Here are a few of them:
Spencer always look so happy when I take his picture!
This is the Halton Junior Jazz Band minus three who were performing with their own school at the time.
What a great bunch of kids.
Still not smiling!! Who's kid is he anyway???
Here it is. Proof that the kid can smile!
