Sydney and Alzheimer's.

The kids and I are in Sydney and are juxtaposed between the joy of fresh air plus western supermarkets and the anguish of living with Alzheimer's. It is really tough to put it mildly.

I am stuck in the suburbs this week...I have not been to a mall in many weeks :(
Next week I should have a hire car and have some time out with the kids:)
And maybe some shopping time............

To end on a positive note, I got my uni grades:- two High Distinctions (the highest grade) and one Distinction (2nd highest grade). I have added a Science Communication major to my B.E.D degree, I will eventually be able to teach science and information tech/communication from year 1 through to year 10 as well as all primary teaching.

Congrats jen on your distinctions, a positive note on a stressful year. Raising 3 kids, living over seas(with expensive grog!) and having a mum doing it tough. Merry xmas and I hope 2009 brings all that you hope for.

Thinking of you guys always

Another one to add congrats on your grades. Although, I must admit to having read about them somewhere else first ;)

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year to You and Yours. May 2009 turn out to be an even better year than 2008.
