snow, non-studentdom, and other tid-bits.

I realized that I haven't blogged in a while. I wanted to write a post on compassion vs. moral obligation, but I totally don't have the brain capacity to delve into it tonight.  There are a few things happening around here, some good, and some I'm not read to discuss.

Anyway, yesterday we had a huge blizzard that actually closed CWRU, which is such a rareity since Case stays open for almost everything that I feel like it should be marked down in history so that's what i am doing.  I also decided that I would much rather have a blizzard than a tornado which happens in the warmer climates during this time year.  Having experienced more tornadoes than I would like to in my college experience, I can vouch for this want of a blizzard.  I honestly think this would also be one of my major deterrents for living in the southern midwest. Well, that and the insane humid summers.

Thursday, I officially turned everything in for graduation, and this means I have no more obligations to the school that impend my graduating.  Instead now I must clean out my office and turn in my keys.  A sad day it might be that I do that, but at least its no longer impending doom.

Ben has developed this hair pulling habit that I think he does out of frustration, but I don't really understand why he wants to self-inflict pain on himself.  If this something I should worry about let me know.  I think its simply a sign of more teeth further back in the mouth coming in.

We went to a birthday party today and it was fun.  However, this means that Ben's birthday is approaching upon us.  It's crazy to think that he is soon one.  Or as my husband says he will upgrade from 3G to 4G.  Apparently 4G is meaningless but I guess to him this is his way of saying that Ben is having a birthday.

So yeah, I am super tired and so am going to turn in. Have an excellent second part of the weekend.

  1. Congratulations on non-studentdom! It is quite a milestone.

    As for hair pulling -- I have a friend who's daughter did something similar. At this young age, the doctor didn't think it was the disorder that causes some people to start pulling out their hair, but she did it so much that she was giving herself a bald spot. So, as hard as it was to do to her daughter, my friend kept her head shaved for the first couple years. The little girl is about 3.5 now and finally has hair, although it is still short and growing in.

    If Ben keeps up the hair pulling, consider keeping his hair so short that he can't pull it. At least, with a boy, it wouldn't look so strange.
