So, the flood that is ravaging the southern part of my province and the center of my city knocked out my internet for three days.  What did you miss?  A blizzard.  A birthday.   A trip to a respected pediatrician that resulted in confirmation of what I already knew about my boy. It is resulting in a new therapy program that is messy and difficult and not to be discussed here to preserve my boy's dignity.  (In a nutshell we can add Sensory Processing Disorder to our list of challenges. )

What did I miss?  Less than I thought I would.  The first day was awful. I didn't know what to do with myself.  I didn't know how to check for the time of the movie we wanted to see!  Then I smartened up.  Losing an invisible thing that we can live without is nothing compared to what so many others have lost in this flood.  I fervently hope that a few days of internet is all I am fortunate to lose from this.

So, since I don't have anything deep and thoughtful to say, here are a few random shots from the past week

This is what you find on your memory card after confiscating the camera from your three and a half year old.
Here is a newly-minted six year old on her school's Silly Hat Day.

Glad you're ok! But I know what you mean - we lost our internet (and as such, our tv watching capabilities as well) in the snowstorm last (2010) winter, when I was 8 months pregnant. I was soooo stir-crazy and lost!
