and who's going to yell at the kids?
I've lost my voice.
I could feel something brewing all week and yesterday it finally revealed itself as some kind of weird cold that isn't quite a cold but drives you nuts anyway - fatigue, endlessly annoying dry cough, swollen airways, hoarseness, blocked ears and a cotton-wool brain. And my joints hurt. As usual. Very nice. I apparently spent the night snoring and coughing in Mr. M's face, so to get some sleep the poor guy has retreated to the guest room for the time being. Which will probably only be until Monday because I WILL be better by then.
Moving right along, we got a Christmas card from my parents today with a picture of the inukshuk my dad built in their garden recently. He had been promising the kids he'd make one for them so they're all excited to see it next summer.
If you read the definition at Wikipedia, you'll notice that this isn't an inukshuk at all, but is in fact an inunguak. And it's this type of inunguak that has been chosen as the emblem for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. It seems like such a cool logo, I had no idea there was so much controversy surrounding it.
But what's life without a little controversy?
