I did have a very special moment today though. There’s this little boy who is the son of a friend of my mom’s. He’s a little devil and drives everyone around him as crazy as he can as often as he can. He took a really long time getting ready to go out trick-or-treating because he didn’t like his costume. He took a fit over it. So his mom finally gets him into the clothes part of his costume but he refused to wear the mask part. It was the mask from the movie Scream. A totally cool mask, but this little 4 year old would NOT wear it. And he has 4 sisters, so they try and paint his face up using their make up, but he isn’t satisfied and continues his fit. Then he decides he NEEDS to have CRYSTAL do it. No one but CRYSTAL. So his mom calls over here and asks my mom if I will do it. My mom, of course, volunteers my services. So this little boy comes over, looking like he’s been crying for hours and sits in a chair and looks up at me hopefully. I get all my make-up together, and I have a TON, and start on his face. I decide that since he likes jack-o-lanterns, I’ll make his face look like one. I draw triangles over his eyes with black eye-liner, and a similar triangle around his nose and then fill it in with dark gray eye shadow. It looked cute. Then when I’m trying to figure out how to do his mouth, my mom says to just make it red. So I draw this big oval around his mouth with this craptacular, never worn by me, bright ass red lipstick. Then I swirl in some gold lipstick, which by the way was my mom’s when she was my age, and there we go. A funky looking jack-o-lantern faced vampire type thing. He looked adorable. And satisfied. When he left my house, he finally let his oldest sister take him out for candy. It was kinda touching, that this one little boy would only go out when *I* did his face up. It was cute.
Anyways, so that was my night and I just wanted to share the touching-ness of it. 😀

Life has started an even more hectic schedule than I had in the summer. I thought I was busy then. My placement started this week, and it’s way out in Orleans, well the outskirts of Orleans and the ride is really draining. Then there’s classes. And assignments which are all due next week. And when I get home from class or placement, I promised to help a little girl with her homework every day until homework club starts up again. So I get home, have maybe a half hour to relax a bit, then I have to go down to eat dinner, then the little girl comes over and I help her with her homework, then I have my own homework to do. And by this time I have a few calls to return which I almost always return. And then I’m so burnt out that I just crash for the night. It’s pretty insane. I have like no time for me, for self care. Anyways, I’m gonna put up my schedule weekly so people can know when I’m free, if that ever happens. I’m keeping my agenda amazingly up to date so I haven’t double booked anything yet. Yet being the key word. My mind is so incredibly scrambled I can barely tell the time anymore :p. Anyways, that’s it for now.

I went to Gatineau Park the other day. It was a beautiful day to go walking. I got these awesome pics of the waterfall at the end of the Waterfall Trail at Mackenzie-King Estate. The garden there is so pretty. There were two weddings going on there while we were there. It was cool. I found it amusing that neither bride was wearing white though :p. Then we took a walk to the ruins. They weren’t exactly ruins, but they were old, that’s for sure. It was beautiful :).
Nothing else really exciting has been happening lately. Well nothing I can recall at this moment. Went out quite a bit the past week or so, but other than that, nothing extrememly thrilling :P.
Back to ‘nesting’.
