Wonderland , Sleep study and Lazy boys

Sophie



Things have been rather busy lately , with the kids still at home and finding myself "jobless" as of very soon I have decided it is the right time to get myself a "real" job , so after 13 years I find myself trying to put together a flattering resume , I have applied for a few jobs , I am hoping to hear back very soon ,I really am looking forward to getting back to a "real" job and all that benefits that it can bring my family , it feels like the right time, especially with the way things are evolving with my part time job of providing childcare ...kids grow up and have changing needs , I am going with the flow.

Last night ended with me sleeping in a lazy boy chair , I didn't see that coming , I thought I was going to spend my night on a cot , but I can go with the flow .

See Sophie has been having some signs of sleep apnea , signs like she stops breathing ....BIG SIGN , so the ENT wanted to make sure there was a problem seeing as she doesn't "snore" , which apparently all people with sleep apnea do !!! well actually I beg to differ or maybe my idea of snoring is not the same as my doctors, my other daughter had sleep apnea , due to BIG tonsils and she never snored , breathed with difficulty , yes and made some noise , yes , but snored NO she did not ! So we will see.


Sophie may need to have her tonsils out , like I did and my older daughter did , it benefited us greatly , but was not fun , nor was this awful sleep study set up by the looks of it for this poor dear, I couldn't take a photo of Sophie as my camera died yesterday , can you believe that !!! I can't I NEED my camera.


This is what my bed for the night looked like , I am aching this morning , but I don't know if it is from the Wii boxing I did a couple of days ago or from riding roller coasters yesterday ....



We started the day off at Canada's Wonderland , such a different experience than last years visit around this time , a lot can change in a year , you may remember last years visit was star studded look here ya'll know JUSTIN BIEBER now right!!! well I am sure glad we got to take the girls to see him last year because to take 3 kids and me it would cost about $629.00 , yikers anyone want to donate tickets to my girls....??anyone ???you'll let me know then.

Here are the girls trying a ride they have never tried , they came prepared in their bikini's , even though it was a little cool they were all so looking forward to this ride , Timberwolf Falls , can you say wet!

Here they go...


It was a huge hit ! they couldn't get me or Todd to try , we weren't willing to be wet for the rest of the day , no thanks

I guess they didn't get wet enough , that sign says Splash Zone ...


I'd say that's a splash zone alright , where did they go???

While waiting in line for a roller coaster I thought this spot had a great backdrop for some pictures , but the camera wasn't focusing....strange...., right after this shot was taken the skies opened up and we got stuck in the rain , the roller coaster got shut down and we spent about 30 minutes thankfully waiting under some shelter waiting for the storm to pass ...fun times



I tried and tried but it just got worse , and it is really really dead , oh no, so no good photos of Sophie from her sleep study , she did great and we got a fantastic technician , he was so good with her , he said she did better then the grown men there , one even had a little fit and left in the middle of the night , big baby , and she definitely snored , not a lot and not all the time but she did , so they proved me wrong , I don't know what this means , probably a tonsillectomy in the near future , I am feeling thankful for the free health care we enjoy here in Canada, nothing has cost us a penny , not even parking last night , BRILLIANT! you're wrong Elisabeth Hasselbeck health care isn't for the socialists.....!

It looks like you had a great time. Sorry to hear about the camera though. We bloggers depend on them so much, don't we? Good luck on the job hunt, and for your daughter and the bit of surgery coming up.
Blessings,
Marcia

Boy, it sounds like you have so much on your plate. It must be so hard at times, trying to do it all!
Worrying about your girls and creating your fabulous home. And now the new job hunt. I know that everything will work out for you and yours. I'm sending positive thoughts your way and I hope a new camera falls into your lap!
Take care, Cindi

My oldest boy had sleep apnea. He did snore though. They took out his tonsils and adenoids and he did great. He'll be 20 in October.

Wishing you a great today!

I've been blog "creeping" but never left a comment, I must say being from the 'states' I love getting the opinions of 'normal' citizens from Canada. The media and GOP play up those people who feel they must "get their own insurance and come to the U.S. for proper treatment" I think that's bogus. I've heard from many people that the care is superb, and that they can't imagine living without it. (And as I job search I think about how much easier the job search would be if I wasn't considering health insurance as one of the most important factors) Glad to hear that your daughter is getting the care she needs, even if it will be a rough go of it for a bit.
