I've realized that I only post when I take pictures. Well I haven't taken any pictures lately, so I haven't written much. I looked at the calendar at work today and realized that January is half over. Where has it gone? The first week was spent just getting back into the swing of things. My much needed couple of days off left me not wanting to face reality again. But reality came and I guess is here to stay. I lost another roommate this month. Sara up and moved to Utah to live in the condo she bought there. I'm excited for her but sad for me. So for now it's just Jessica and I in the apartment which is kind of strange. I can't get too used to it though as we're getting new roommate(s). More updates when that is final. Some of the highlights of the past few weeks...the amazing weather that LA affords that allows me to play tennis at 9:00pm in 60 degree weather in January. Can't really beat that. I am going to play more this year. That falls into the Physical Activity category of my new year's resolutions. I actually made some this year, which I haven't done for several years. Half my weekends in January are/will be taken up by a Sensory Integration course that I'm taking for work. It's Friday-Sunday and then Saturday-Sunday two weeks later. I felt like I was in school again, but I actually didn't mind it. Maybe it was because I knew there wasn't going to be a test. Or maybe it was because I'd gotten so good at being a student that it was like coming back to a familiar role. Hopefully weekend two will be just as informative. January brought cold #4 since I started working at the pediatric clinic. Those kids are walking germs. Somehow the immune system is gonna need a boost because I'm not gonna make it through the winter if I'm constantly sick. Any tips? Well enough ramblings from me. I better find something to do on this fine Thursday night.

lots of sleep, lots of OJ, some emergen-C and when you drop something on the floor, don't bother rinsing it off before you put it in your mouth. That will boost your immune system right up...

You may be interested to check out the Free Sound Therapy Home Programme available from Sensory Activation Solutions. Their Auditory Activation Method builds on the pioneering work of Dr. Alfred Tomatis (Tomatis method) and Dr. Guy BĂ©rard (Auditory Integration Training) and has been specifically developed with the aim to improve sensory processing, interhemispheric integration and cognitive functioning. It has helped many children and adults with a wide range of learning and developmental difficulties, ranging from dyslexia, dyspraxia and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder to sensory processing disorders and autism. It is not a cure or medical intervention, but a structured training programme that can help alleviate some of the debilitating effects that these conditions can have on speech and physical ability, daily behaviour, emotional well-being and educational or work performance.
