Tickled From The Inside...

This afternoon I was fighting my alarm after taking a nap after work and class. The little Monster was being really active so I was just letting him kick or punch or poke or whatever he was doing. He has been really quite for the last week, so it was reliving to feel him get his energy back - mine as well! Then the funniest thing happened. I am not very ticklish unless you get me in the right place. It is somewhere on my sides, I don't really know, but apparently the Monster knows. I started to feel light little pokes on my left side, then they got harder. They were moving up and down my side (as though you were poking some on their side with your finger). I didn't think to much of it, since he learnt how to pinch my bladder, I am not surprised he can poke my side. Then he moved up and it tickled. It was so strange. I could do nothing about it. The little Monster was poking me from the inside and it tickled as though some one was poking my side from the outside.

Its Who You Know...

With each new day, I am learning that the old wise saying of "It's not what you know, but who you know" is TRUE!!! As most of you know, next semester is my last - YAY for me! If I don't take those classes in Winter, I have to wait a year to take them next winter before I can graduate.

Since May I have worked as the morning receptionist in the Academic and Career Advising Services as the Business College. While working here I have developed good relationships with my most of the faculty - well those that really make a difference anyway.

Last Friday the Winter 2008 schedule came out. Ben and I have decided that it would be best for me to take all night classes so that way, I can be home during the day with Baby and he can be home at night with the Monster. With that arrangement I can still graduate and he can still work his two jobs, while not having to hire a baby-sitter or anything like that.

Arranging my classes Cindy, one of the counselors in the office, came to see how it was going. She knows what all my plans are for next semester and is in favour of most of them. Winter 08 they are trying out new times for the classes, that way there is more teaching time for the teachers and college ends two weeks earlier than usual. Arranging all my classes, I discovered that two of my classes over lapped each other. That would mean I would have to take a morning class - which does not agree with the planned schedule.

So Cindy made a call to her good friend Tyler - who makes the schedule, and now all my classes work perfectly with my new night schedule. The moral of business life - it's not what you know, but who you know!

We Are The Champions!!!

Last week I received an email saying that all South Africans and their supporters were to wear green and gold on Friday. I told my wonderful husband about that email and he loved the idea. So Thursday night we went out to get some green and gold. Ben has been following the rugby with me online and through family updates, so he got really excited to know that we were playing in the finals on Saturday. Lucky for Ben, is that he works all slaver-labor jobs, which means that he is able to decorate his work outfits with duck tape and not get into trouble. That is exactly what he did. Ben was not at home when I got dressed that morning for work in my green and gold, so there are no pictures of that - sorry, but you do get a picture of Chuck, my little plant at work!

Just For You...

Lately my dad has been on my tail lately about getting pictures and things on the web so that he can view them in South Africa. He keeps telling me to get a online photo album. I think they are great and all, but I wanted something different. So this is it!

Here's to me keeping everyone updated about the busy lives of
The Ames Family!
