Mish Mash

Many topics, one post:-)
  • Regifting...apparently this is the biggest thing this year, I have been doing it for ages!! I guess now it is acceptable? What are the "rules" of regifting? I heard a bit on the news about it today and they suggested that the regift - be new, be intact, not go back to the same person who gifted it to you...lol!! What are some "rules" you may have about regifting?
  • We had a dessert exchange last night. It was so much fun!! There were 8 of us participating, so there was a nice variety of stuff to take home. We all ended up with truffles, macaroons, shortbreads, gingerbreads, cheesecakes, peanut butter kisses, peanut butter balls...so much yummy stuff!! Now I don't need to do as much (if any) baking this season, we are just going to enjoy others treats! First time I have ever been a part of one of these and I will definitely do it again. I suggested we try it out with meals, with certain restrictions (size, type of meal etc...) What do you think?
  • We see the pediatric neurologist tomorrow. I am prepared to ask him so many questions that he will be begging us to leave...he may even need to consult in a book or something? Some of the questions we have are: Where exactly is the damage in Faiths brain? What areas are affected by the damage? What signs or behaviours should we be watching for? Is this damage the reason why she has stopped sleeping? How much longer do/can we explain her behaviour off as "she is just 2"? What diagnoses should we be preparing for? Is there anything, other then behaviour modification, that we can do to prevent or change some of the behaviour we see already? And more questions...do you have any you think I should ask? I am open to all suggestions!!
  • School is over in 3 more days...1 test tomorrow night and then fun and placement prep on Thursday!! I am excited for the holiday, but also in knowing that we are almost half done the course!! It is really an accomplishment that I am quite excited about. My marks have been pretty good and I feel like this is really the field that I want to be in, which makes it so much easier!

Anyhow, I am sure there is more that I could post here, but I will leave it at that for now. I am going to my annual worker review today with the home care organization that I work with. Curious to see what the family has said about me...I am pretty sure it will be a good meeting:-)

Happy Tuesday to you all!


  1. I don't think of it as "regifting".... think of it more like, "reduce, recycle, reuse". Just doing my part in being Green!! :-)

  2. p.s. I LOVE YOUR NEW SHARE BUTTON!!!!! It makes so much easier to "regift" your stories!! lol hahaha

  3. ooo...the Share button is cool too...and the Reactions too.
    I'm a regifter too...not too often, but I have.
