Today's picture is of Mom's gift wrapping from Christmases past! We strongly encourage you all to use wrapping paper that can be either burned or recycled afterwards (unlike regular gift wrapping paper). As you can see both brown paper and newspaper can make for good looking presents with less negative effects on our environment.
Mom's been at work today for the first time since the bad foot business. They're ouchie right now, but we're thinking it will take a day or two to see how much is from lack of use and and how much is in the tendons. She'll be working 50% for a while so no work tomorrow. Which is also good for her studying. She's got "English Phonetics and Intonation" and "Physiology" left. American Litterature was the one she had last week. We know someone also asked what she's studying - and she's studying to be a teacher at levels similar to High School and her subjects will be Biology (major) and English.
