Super Fun! Starring Yours Truly

We are fostering two very photogenic cats :)
This weekend I filmed an educational series with Melody Publishing (the company that owns my preschool).  It was a good experience, but it was really hard!  Twelve hours of filming is not easy on the feet haha.  Actors definitely have their work cut our for them, and I am most certainly not cut our for the field (I was terrible at memorizing my lines).  But all and all it was fun, and I got paid to do it :) I'll be bringing a copy of the DVDs home with me so you'll all get a chance to have a good laugh.

I'm still working at a preschool and an after-school program, but my afternoon school has changed. The place I used to teach at, Shane Schools was really terrible.  I won't bore you with all the details ... but being a foreign worker can be problematic and difficult sometimes and some schools just make it worse.  The biggest problem I had with working for Shane was that the management was awful and they were completely disorganized.  But, I like my new school a lot, and it's closer to my house!

Our new roommate Adriana also moved in this week.  Now there are three of us girls living in the apartment but I think things will go smoothly because we all get along really well.  Sophie and I each have a friend coming to visit at the same time so January will be a busy (and crowded) month.

I've also just started reading a book a friend sent me, Ishmael by Daniel Quinn.  It's an amazing book and I haven't been able to put it down.  You can find it on Amazon here.  Highly recommended!!


  1. Wow you know I'll be first in line to see that video lol. I can hardly wait!

  2. Hi,you don't know me, but we are connected by two balls of fur; Momo & Lulu. I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking care of them for us. We will be back in Taiwan as soon as possible. We're currently waiting for my husband's Canadian Permanent Resident card to be approved. Once that comes back, we'll be able to leave Winnipeg. Thank-you again.


Where are you in the world?
