what is in a day? (another discussion topic...)

You know… I’ve been thinking…. A lot of us know each other through this blog, but I would be interested in knowing what we do during our days. Do we work, do we raise kids, are we in school? And if we work, what do we do for it, if we raise kids, what are some of the cool things about it, if we are in school is it going well, what is loved about it?

Throughout my life I was always counseled by my wise very-loved Mother to enjoy every season of life I am in. Today that is pretty easy to do—it is a lovely cold sun and blue sky day in Ottawa, my co-op for my Masters in Library and Information Science [MLIS] is going well… (Btw I do not work in a library but in a research based medical place and I do various library and project management tasks from keep minutes for working group meetings to developing print and online collections for our library service: in other words I sit at my computer all day).

So… what do you do with your days?

Hey Elizabeth... that's a fun question. I'm interested in knowing what everyone does all day, too!

As for me... well, I go through two spurts of either getting up and having a disciplined time of prayer, readind, and being mellow before I head off to work or I do as I'm currently doing which is rolling out of bed with 30 seconds to spare before I drive to be a special ed. teacher. I have a homeroom of 8 students and 4 very loud teacher's assistants. I teach Work Based Learning and everyday I get a different group of kids. Mondays are the most fun -- I get to work with 4 deaf kids at a department store. It's only time I get to use sign language. I'm also in my last class finishing up my 2nd Master's Degree. Oh... and I teach one class for the University of Memphis. I have no kids, but I babysit A LOT for families who have children with special needs. Other than that I read, ride my bike, run, and play with friends. :)

I work for the heritage branch of the Pronvince of Alberta. I write Statements of Significance (SoS's) about heritage resources, which are mostly historic buildings. You can read some of my work by checking out the alberta section of www.historicplaces.ca

It's a fun job and I really enjoy it. And, it's on the University of Alberta campus which is pretty nice too.
