 Whew.  I am finally feeling better.  What a crappy week!  Monday we had no school and it was Thanksgiving.  Monday night Soren vomited, so I made him stay home on Tuesday.  I stayed home with him and skyped into my classes.  Wednesday I was feeling really crappy, but got dressed and took the bus all the way out to UBC.  However, when I arrived for my class at 3:00, I felt my energy draining every minute and nauseousness was creeping up my gullet.  So, I got in a car2go and drove home without attending my class.  Thursday I slept and skipped my applied sciences for midwifery class and the clinical class for my group was cancelled (essentially).  Nonetheless, I wrote my book review and did my 103 lab and emailed off my homework.  I slept again on Friday, skipping my Birth and its Meaning class.  I missed out as my class went to the Woodward Memorial Room of the Woodward library and looked at books printed in the 1500s called The Byrth of Mankynd.  Bummer.  :(  
I essentially missed an entire week of classes.  Just before the midterms.  I suppose I should be much more worried than I am.

I know from my last Human Anatomy class that I will fail if I do NO work.  So I will do the work of studying and pass.  I may not get stellar, A-marks, but I will pass.  That is all that really matters.  

I'm off to Karen's niece's birthday party and then I will start studying.  Women's studies test on Wednesday and Applied Sciences for Midwives on Thursday.  The icing on the cake is Thursday afternoon we have our first clinical class with pregnant women!  I believe we are learning how to do assessments/palpating bellies.  Yippeee!  Friday is Birth and its Meaning and I will bring in a hard copy of my paper.  

This morning I woke up and discovered a ziplock baggie of frozen muffin batter.  3 carrot/apple/nut muffins were baked and I also made Vegan Dad's breakfast sausages with Jimmy Dean Copy Cat spice.  All of this alongside scrambled eggs and orange juice made for a splendid Sunday brunch.  As I made breakfast Karen and I watched Felix Baumgartner skydive from space.  Now we are finishing the Avengers.  I love Joss Whedon's story telling ability!

Being sick was icky.  I haven't been that sick in well over a year if not more.  It was, from what I can tell, just a bad cold.  I realized, however, that because I was not on call and could take sick days without it being terribly detrimental to anyone but me, I took care of myself better than I have in the past.  I slept, I ate homemade soups, I drank a lot of juice and I slept some more.  When I wasn't sleeping, I watched mindless episodes of Community with Karen (who was sick right along side of me).  I thought about feeling guilty for all the time I took, but I know I won't have this luxury very often.  I'm also happy to report I did not pass my cold on to any of my classmates.  

The most exciting thing I did this week was try out for the Vagina Monologues being put on as part of the VDay production at UBC on or around Valentine's Day.  The tryouts were on Saturday.  I tried out for both the Vagina Monologues and Something a Rant and a Prayer.  Sarah Edwards Noel is directing and she convinced me to 1) try out and 2) SING! at the tryouts.  Wild.  Just wild.  I haven't been on stage in over 20 years.  I'm excited and at the same time wondering what I got myself into?
