Unemployment, it sucks…really

David Thompson 1961-2010

Today his body is lying in state at his alma mater, Combermere School, which happens to be my alma mater too. If there’s one thing and only one thing you ever learn about Combermere, it’s that we Combermerians are fiercely proud of our school and alumni. As such, we are proud to call David Thompson one of our own.

RIP, sir.

Blah Blah Blogging Block

I have a case of writer’s block. Or perhaps it’s a lack of confidence. I have multiple ideas for blog posts. Sometimes I start to write them. They often remain unfinished or I delete them entirely because they’re not __________ (insert deprecative adjective) enough. I do, however, have faith that I will come out of this blogging slump. So, in the meantime, please enjoy the above pic of Baby E who is being relatively pleasant as he cuts his first teeth. Also, head on over to The Mahogany Way and congratulate fellow blogging mama, Darcel, on the successful homebirth of her son.
