Random stuff, reflections on the meaning of life and death, humour, self-deprecation, a bit of bad poetry.

1. It was raining when I got up today so I wore a hat to work to avoid absorbing any more atmosphere. I bought it while on vacation in Rhode Island this past summer at some big box store. As far as I’m concerned, they should call it “The Big Head” store. That’s how incredible it is to find something that fits over my noggin and allows me to think clearly at the same time. The best part is that three of my patients told me I looked like a little girl. The fourth one had no idea who I was and it didn’t seem to make any difference when I took the hat off. And yes, I’m still wearing it as I blog.

2. I have been eyeing a bag of hand-me-downs that a friend gave me for Sean. It’s full of comfy-cosy, fleecy, stretchy, muffin-top accommodating active wear. The clothes are too big for Sean right now but just a little too big for me. I figure why not hand them up to me until he grows into them? Score!

3. Our professional team held its second symbolic 15 minute break today at work. Eighteen of us were lined up in our chairs outside the elevator and this time somebody brought lollipops. I’m thinking maybe I should bake something for next week’s pause. A few people suggested that we should maybe take two breaks during the week. There’s a thought! With such an awful work climate lately, this show of solidarity is a wonderful bonding opportunity, not to mention the candy.

4. My widow’s peak continues to thin and wreak havoc on my forehead. I’m seriously considering having it permanently removed. Either that, or I am going to buy some hair glue and whip it into some sort of shape. What do you think of these styles?

5. My son’s teacher gave him a head’s up on his report card today : 94% in math! I must admit, I didn’t believe him at first. Math is such a struggle for him and he works sooooooo hard at it, it didn’t seem possible. But there you have it, hard work (and awesome resources) sometimes pay off. We decided to celebrate by having fast food for supper and Halloween candy for dessert and took some selfies just for the heck of it. Notice he’s almost as tall as me?
