Greetings and Salutations

I laugh when people think of my title as an intellectual or fancy way of saying hello. I got that line from Charlotte’s Web (still love that book.)  What was your favourite book as a child? Mine was Morris the Moose Goes to School.  Clearly I have always been a bit of a bookworm, and it is something that I am trying to encourage in my children.

Thankfully it is working, they love to be read to and to be read to.  I admit my little speechie heart beats a little faster when my Cielo asks if we can “practice my sounds.”  She just loves the Jolly Phonics program she is learning in Kindergarten.

Yesterday I had a great day, actually I had so much good fortune I probably should have bought a lottery ticket.  I started off my day with a meeting with my Education Director at work.  That went well and I was off to print copies of all the assessments I have done so far this year for filing in central office.  I stopped at the IT department to inquire if I could have my (crappy old) laptop connected to the wireless printer.  He tried but apparently my computer had no CD rom drive and other assorted “ailments.” This came as no surprise to me as often it takes multiple attempts to even turn on; sometimes I even get a “NO OPERATING SYSTEM DETECTED” error message (that can’t be good.)  My Ed Dir came to give me a copy of the agenda for Friday…they started talking about my laptop and I ended up leaving the room with a brand new work laptop.  It is not mine to keep, but as a contracted employee I do not usually get employee perks so I was tickled. (Lucky thing #1)

Then I went for lunch with a group of area SLPs.  None of us have many colleagues so we have taken it upon ourselves to network independently.  It was great fun and I enjoyed telling them about twitter.  They thought I knew a lot of people online, and I guess I do. (Good thing #2)

I finished up at work and then grabbed myself a Tim Horton’s.  Last stop of the day was for gas at a First Nations gas station (tax free fuel.) When I arrived home my husband had a delicious mexican meal all ready for us. (Lucky thing #3)

Later on in the evening I got the news that we may be getting a Christmas Bonus from the rez this year. (Fortunate thing #4)  Later on my dad arrived with some early Christmas gifts. (Sweet thing #5)

Much later I got a phone call from the gas station.  I won their nightly Christmas draw and won a $100 gift certificate for their store! Hello? Free gas? Holla!! (awesome thing #6)

TOTALLY PUMPED FOR TODAY! Bring it universe!

  1. I usually do not drop a bunch of comments, but I read a bunch of responses
    here Greetings and Salutations | Ndnspeechmom.
    I do have a few questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be simply me
    or does it appear like some of these remarks come across like they are left by brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are writing on other places, I’d like to follow you.

    Could you list of every one of all your social networking sites like your Facebook page,
    twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  2. I just like the helpful info you provide on your articles.
    I’ll bookmark your blog and test once more right here frequently.
    I’m slightly sure I will be told plenty of new stuff proper
    right here! Best of luck for the following!

  3. I usually do not drop a bunch of comments, however I looked
    at a lot of comments here Greetings and Salutations |
    Ndnspeechmom. I do have a couple of questions for you if
    you tend not to mind. Is it just me or does it look like a few
    of these comments come across like they are written by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I would
    like to keep up with you. Would you list of the complete urls of your public
    sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
