happy birthday, cookie puss!

let's see, it's now 7:59 p.m. EST... exactly two years ago at this time, i was huffing and puffing during the last stages of labor. cookie somersaulted out at exactly 8:55 p.m. after 20 hours leaking (my water broke first), driving thru a snowstorm, being hooked up to an IV, stalled dilation, pitocin, and a very weak epidural. was it worth it and would i do it again? hells, yeah!

of course, canuck and i took the subway all the way downtown and spent the majority of the day taking part one of the royal college of dental surgeons ethics and jurisprudence course, the last stage before i finally get my license in ontario. it was a bunch of pertinent and useful information like don't have sex with your patients, don't drill people's faces off and try to take them to collections when they don't pay, don't embezzle money and don't try to practice dentistry in your kitchen, yada, yada, yada. the room was stifling hot and the material far from interesting, but everyone was very nice and we met some cool people, plus they had a nice spread of free breakfast and lunch. tomorow's the open-book, 10-question exam and then we're done! so we got home around 5 p.m., had dinner, and had birthday cake and opened presents! we got some really great pics of cookie with her cake and presents, i'll upload them once we get our USB port hooked up. she blew out the candles herself, i was so proud of her!!! she's got a really great pair of lungs, i should know!

this is the map of the toronto subway system. not as extensive as the MTA, but it is cleaner and it doesn't smell like pee. see the rosedale station? prince owns a house in that area.

on the flip side, i was terribly homesick today and kind of worried about finding a job, getting a house, and moving out of my in-laws place. i've been here only two days, and although i love them dearly, canuck and i are desperate to venture off on our own. everyone keep their fingers crossed!
