Practicum is FINISHED! I have completed my hours officially and my Mondays and Tuesdays are officially free. This last 4 days was my first break since I started practicum at the end of September, and I already have tons more energy than I have over the last couple months. I feel like I can go to work tomorrow and actually put more energy into my job as a nanny than I ever have before. The other day, Jordan and I got the opportunity to go to the Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth park on Cambie St. It was lovely!! It's not too expensive to get in, and you get to see all sorts of tropical plants and birds! at only $7 dollars each to get in, it's a great way to spend a rainy day!

Almost finished...

I'm almost finished! Only 3 days of practicum left to do and I will be free from daycare! (then after that I just need to read 1500 pages and write two huge papers by the end of april, woohoo!)
I unfortunately had to call in sick today because I pulled a muscle in my left leg yesterday when I bent down to tie a child's shoe, leaving me unable to walk without pain today. Fortunately it's gotten better over the course of the day, so I will be able to get back to work tomorrow (at the best job ever, mind you!)

Jordan and I have been doing weekly menus instead of buying random things at the grocery store, and we've actually been really enjoying it! (and spending less money on groceries) Tonight I tried to make one of my favorite recipes that my mom used to make us when we were younger, but it went horribly wrong, which I was very disappointed about. But hey, maybe next time it will work! 

Tomorrow night: one of my favorites! Taco salad!
