Cullen’s phone was not working and our contract was up. We decided to get new phones. This is always a stressful thing for me, because I have to test all the phones so I know I can feel the buttons. They quit making phones with big buttons, because the small phones are in and big are out. I like big, because I can feel the buttons easy. So, I got very frustrated with the lack of phones with buttons that I could feel. I got a new phone. The buttons are sort of hard to feel, but it will do. By the time we got home Cullen and I were very frustrated. Oh well I don’t have to do that again for another two years.
Now I am off to zone out.

Last night I did not get much sleep. I stayed up and watched TV. Then about 11:30pm Gregory woke up and would not go down to sleep till close to 1am. Then Gregory woke up again at 5am. I was tired and had a bad headache. Cullen took Gregory so I could get some more sleep. As you know it snowed yesterday and so today they delayed school two hours. So, I could not go to school due to Cullen’s work schedule. I guess quite a few people in my class think I know what is going on and because of this three of my classmates called me this morning. I can’t remember much of our conversations, because my head hurt so much, but I remember that they called to find out about the school opening delay. I am glad I could not go today, because I was able to get sleep. I was in bed till noon. When I woke up and found out what time it was I was surprised and a little upset. I hate sleeping in so late because I feel like I miss out on the day. I still have a little headache tonight. I am going to bed soon to try to sleep off the pain. I have school tomorrow.

Oh and Gregory will be a great help when he gets older and starts understanding more of what I say. The other day I asked Gregory where his juice was and he went and found it for me. What a helper.
I just got back from a walk with Gregory and boy is it cold. Yesterday on our walk I did not need a coat but today I had to wear my winter coat. Gregory fell asleep during the walk so I decided to blog, yeah!

Well like the title of this post says “I don’t look blind”. Well, I don’t. People can’t tell I am blind unless I have my cane or guide dog with me. Well, when I have my guide dog people think I am training her instead of actually using her for a guide dog. After some people find out I am blind they are surprised and say “I’m sorry” or “you don’t look blind”. I have had people ask me if glasses or contacts would help. Well duh, don’t you think I would be using them if that would help. I have only been blind for close to eight years. Maybe they think I am stupid and haven’t thought about that. There are also those people who say I should try the corrective surgery. Let me think what does, no cure or treatment available mean to them? Then when they finally comprehend this they say that soon there will be a surgery that will help. Um and how do they know? Oh and then some people tend to think they know everything about being blind because when they take off there glasses they can’t see well. Oh let me try that, wait I can’t use glasses. Then others yell at me because they tend to think I can see better when they yell. I still don’t understand that one. Yes and you also have the people who treat me like I am too dumb to understand, “what would she like for dinner”.
I don’t mind the sincere questions, but good grief treat me like a human being. Oh and don’t say you are sorry unless it is your fault that I am blind. I do like attention but I am not a super woman or an expert on the subject of blind people. And yes I do watch TV and love going to the movie theater.
Yes, I can drive. I just can’t see the road or the cars around me.
Well I guess that was ending on a funny note. Oh and I don’t drive so it is safe to be on the road. Wait there are so many other bad drivers out there it is not safe to drive, but safer than if I was driving too.
I do say that is not what is bothering me today but I feel a little better.
Here is the part about don’t flush it. This is what is wrong.
I am mad at my husband because it is easy to get mad at your husband. If you are not married try it and you will get mad at your husband too. Besides that we are having toilet trouble. I think it is the toilet but I am not sure. We live in the middle condo. The condo downstairs has a wet ceiling in the bathroom. Which probably means it is coming from our bathroom. There is no water on the floor in our bathroom. So, if it is from our bathroom it means that the toilet plumbing is screwed up. They have mold too. Which means this problem has been going on for quite a while. So, why didn’t they tell us till this weekend. So frustrating! I turned the toilet off. So we can’t use that toilet. What a pain. I am just thankful this condo has two bathrooms. Otherwise we would have big problems. So, a plumber is coming sometime this week and we will probably have to pay too much money. Oh I do hate this. Grrrr. I feel that if it is from our toilet it is our fault but not everything because we were not notified until now. So, I think the neighbors should be responsible for some of the problem with the ceiling in their bathroom. If they are going to wait forever to say something they should pay for some of the damage. There is no way we could have known what was going on.
So, that is a problem isn’t it. Oh and why does my husband always forget everything except things that have to do with computer games? Where is the damn milk?

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!!!
There is so much to learn.
I think it is very interesting. I am having trouble understanding some of the information the way the book worded the information. I am sure with class time and more concentration I will get it. I think it is cool about the blood types.
If you are type O you can give your blood to anyone, because you are an universal donor. If you are type AB you can have anyone’s blood, because you are an universal recipient. If you are type A you can only have type A or O blood. If you are type B you can only have type B or O blood. If you are type O blood you can only have type O blood. If you have a Rh factor that is negative like B- you can only have blood that has a negative Rh factor. If you have a positive Rh factor you can have blood with either a negative or a positive Rh factor. Oh and if somebody screws up and gives you the wrong blood you could die. Sounds like fun doesn’t it.

As soon as you think drooling will stop it starts up again. With teeth and everything else. I guess spit can also be fun to play with. I don’t know why he is drooling lately, because it is just fine. I have plenty of shirts to change him into. I think he could be doing it on purpose. I do love this silly boy.

Oh and my Grandma came over this past Tuesday and today. She fixed me dinner. Tonight we had beef stroganoff, yum. I am so full, well I was so full. I am still full because I just finished a root beer float, yum. Food is so good. Oh and I have lots of food. My Grandma brought me the whole grocery store. I have lots of choices of what I want to eat. Grandmas are great! Oh, and she did my dishes too. I am so spoiled. It is good to be spoiled.
School is good. I had my leg muscle test today and I got an “A” Yeah! I have only gotten A’s on all of my tests. Which is super! The leg muscle test was my last test on muscles. I am so glad. Muscles are hard work. I have to keep studying them though, because I have the National Massage Therapy test coming up after I am done with school. It is like a big SAT test. That is why I must study so much. I have less than three months till I am done with school. I am glad I am learning so much. I feel smart. Smart is good!
Gregory is sleeping. That is good. He needs his rest. Last night he woke up in the middle of the night and stayed awake for a couple of hours. So, I did not sleep very well. Due to this lack of sleep I woke up late and was four minutes late for class. Luckily it doesn’t count against me until I am at least 11 minutes late, I think. Whatever, it all works. Also, Daddy brought Gregory a helium balloon home from work. Gregory just loves his balloon. That balloon is the first thing Gregory looks for in the morning. Next time I am down I think I will get me a balloon. It does wonders for my son, why not me?
So I suggest if you are sad, buy yourself a helium balloon and play with it.

This is what the camera would say:
“A child is in the middle of the frame with his tongue sticking out”
“A child is running”
“Picture of messy room, missing child”
There is no talking camera so I just have to do the best I can. Pretty good so far, I think.

Gregory now can get out of his pack-in-play so I guess there is no point in trapping him in there anymore.
Every time Gregory hears a siren from an ambulance or police car he goes eeeeeehh!!! Very cute and funny I say.
He can also climb on top of the kitchen table. So, that is now not a safe place to put anything.
My toe still hurts.
Lots on mind.
(No my brain is not located in my toe)
He is at work now and is working.

Oh and I do have to say I am quite pitiful I did not even make it till midnight on New Years Eve. I fell asleep around 11:45pm. Wow! Does this mean I am getting old? I have been so busy lately and I am back at school. Well much to do and don’t feel like writing about it.
