In bed and frustrated (and no, I don’t mean sexually). Yeesh.

I’ll admit, one of the things I’m finding most frustrating about this ear infection is that while I’m stuck at home, often just sitting in bed either colouring with the girl or putzing on my macbook, I’m not actually well enough to be working on any of my processing.  So the longer my ears take to heal, the further behind I’m getting in my workload – and I’m just sitting at home, in bed.

Sitting at home, but not able to focus well enough to work.  I’m going a little batty.  So I have a couple of shoots that need my attention, and more coming up, but I can’t really do anything about it.

I can go out and shoot because while I’m out for such a short time my adrenaline kicks in and carries me through.  My work doesn’t suffer at all (though I move a little slower, and probably sound a little funny seeing how I can’t hear myself real well) so while I can be shooting, I can’t work through any processing.  And I hate being behind.  I really do hate asking folks to wait on their images because I know how hard it is to not know how things turned out.  But I suppose we do what we have to do.

I went back to the Veterina Mediclinic (and yes, I realize I almost put Veterinary Clinic) today.  Looks like the infection has actually caused a small perforation in my left ear.  The Doctor is concerned, but hopeful that given time it will heal itself.  So cross your fingers.  I go for a recheck in about two weeks

This whole ordeal still seems a little weird to me, I mean honestly?  An ear infection?  The last time I had one I was a little kid.  I think the last time MOST people remember having one was during their childhood.  So to have been sooo knocked for a loop by something that only bothers kids who spend a lot of time at the pool?  As an adult who hasn’t been swimming in a few months?  It’s a little odd.  But that’s just the way it goes I suppose.

And now?  Now I’m rambling.  Yes.  That’s kinda what happens when my brain is so fuzzy.  Hopefully we’ll be onto other topics soon.  I’m sure you’re all getting as tired of hearing about my ear infection as I am living with it.  LOL

Night all!  Wishing you many ear infection free years!

Busy, busy day.

Spent the morning with the wee girlie.  Playing, cuddling, colouring, eating, getting ready for pre-k…  Then the afternoon was devoted to Green Party business, including chairing an executive meeting.  In the evening we picked up my sister Jewles, and headed off to the library.  Following that it was over to my parents for some supper, where we helped my Dad navigate through the maze of uploading media on his Mac and iPod.  Put the wee girlie to sleep.  Then worked on Christmas presents and played on facebook for a wee bit.  Now, laying in bed, girlie beside me, posting on the blog.  Whew.  LMAO

Tomorrow morning will be much the same (and my favourite part of the day because it’s just me and the girl), in the afternoon I’ve got presents to work on as well as some scrapbooking business to attend to.  Then it will be off to my parents place to help decorate the tree.  😀  Sooo looking forward to that.  Because we’ve just got the tiny half tree that hangs on the wall (will share a picture when we put it up) I really do enjoy helping set up my parents tree.  And I’m sure Lily-Ann will too.

Now, I’m going to share a photo of the girlie playing at the library.  Then I’ll be playing a bit of Warstorm on FB.  And nighty night.  LOL  Just me and the dogs awake in the dark (Damon is up on the desktop computer).  😀

Playing at the Library!

She wanted to share…

Today was another day spent creating and colouring.  And this time, after seeing that I posted some of her drawings on here previously, the wee girlie wanted to share them with all of you.  🙂  So here she is, holding up her unicorn for everyone to see.  And notice the lines coming up out of the unicorn?  She was eager to tell the world that those make this particular unicorn, a carousel horse.  Clever girlie that she is felt the need to make that one small change to Elizabeth‘s illustration.  I’m sure Ms. Dulemba wouldn’t mind.

All Coloured In

Today the wee girlie and spent a couple hours picking pictures, printing them off, and colouring them.  This is only half of the finished pictures.  Lily-Ann liked the mermaid so much we had to print her off twice!  LOL

Thanks so much to dulemba.com for your constant flow of wonderful pages to colour.  Your work serves to inspire, and is enjoyed by many many families!
