Classic Cannwin Rant

I'm done. I am through, I'm moving to the South Pacific, where they don't have germs.--just bugs. Why? Why! Because South Dakota has become a private nightmare. Let's recap shall we:

October
- Baby gets pneumonia.

November
- Baby gets some other respiratory ailment.
- Albowin gets a staph infection.
- Cannwin contracts mo{u}rning sickness. (When did I contract baby?... I started feeling it around this time)

December
- Baby, Vicbowin, Albowin catch the stomach flu... And pass it back and forth for a month!
- Baby ends up in hospital from dehydration (caused by all the vomiting).

January
Blessed relief!

February
- Baby gets a nasty cold.
- Cannwin gets nasty cold.
- Dr. Begins to suspect Baby is asthmatic.
- Cannwin's cold turns into a sinus infection (with accompanying migraines).
- Albowin gets the flu.
- Vicbowin gets the flu.
- Baby gets the flu.

March
- Cannwin gets the flu on top of sinus infection.

In six months I have seen my pediatrician more than any OB/GYN I have ever had.

So I'm moving to Samoa, or Guam, or Hawaii.

I need someone to blame this on... I think it'll have to be Mariah this time. She has a lot of resp. issues and the baby never did until we met her. Yep, Mariah this is all your fault so I'm going to expect 5 tickets to Guam before July... 6 if after. You know where to send them.

Hi this is in response to your august 2008 post
Just to set the record straight, I didn't only date cheerleaders, and if I did it was only because it took an aggressive cheerleader for me to even make a move. Since nobody commented on this post I thought it would be fitting for me to post something.

Do you know what you are having yet?

Ok Esperity...on the sick front...you SO TOTALLY WIN!!!!!
Even if you don't want to be winning this one...you now all have the flu?
That's awful!!!! It puts my sore throat and exema into perspective...I'll keep my life! :)

Cari- No not all of us. If you note, not a one illness has befallen Ralexwin. That man has got the immune system of a god!

So absolutely not fair of him.

But other than him, yes... we all have the flu now and of course I'm taking the longest to get over it.

Robbie- You've peaked my curiosity... how did you come by my blog? I have to admit I had to go back to my august posts to see what I said about you. And even if you didn't date all cheerleaders you were on a much higher social rung than I ever achieved (until my senior year... the football players actually acknowledged me then, but I think that had more to do with the fact that my best friends brother was one of them).

On a side note, were you planning on attending your 10 year reunion? I can't, which makes me sad. *sigh*

And thanks for commenting. I love comments.

I was messing around on the internet, and I came across my name on a blog site last night. In high school I mostly hung out with only a few guys (mostly Dan Birch, which if you did not know I am saddened to say Dan was killed in a car accident just a couple weeks ago) I have not talked to most of my friends since then but I mostly stayed low key and still do. I will not be making it to the reunion, though it would probably be fun to see everyone. What have you been up too? Where are you at these days?
cannwin said…
Well, see that sort of googling would never work for me... My maiden name is way to much of a generalization to pop up much more than my facebook account.

As for what I'm up to. I currently live in South Dakota where my husband is going to Law School. I've spent nearly the entire decade since high school in Phoenix and at the moment am really missing the winter's there. And South Dakota is so flat that I feel a certain degree of agoraphobia... I miss the mountains.

Technically I would be crashing your high school reunion, since I moved in with my brother in Utah my senior year, but I don't think anyone would notice. However I can't go to either reunion since I am due to have my fourth baby at the end of july... well, that and Law School students aren't known for their coffers of gold.

How about you? What are you up to lately?

My heart breaks for you. Being sick with kids is so hard.
Morg and Robbie said…
Well I feel ya on the flat terrain, I currently live in Omaha Nebraska where my wife is in dental school. We have just a couple years left and then we will move back to the mountains. I am working on finishing up my degree that I neglected when I was playing college basketball. Everything is good, other than the economy but I am happy and alive, that's all that matters. Check into my blog and let me know how you are doing from time to time. I appreciate you writing me back.

This sounds hellacious! Yuck!

Altered Shoe Art: Ring Holder Shoe Tutorial

This was my week two craft for So You Think You're Crafty. I placed third that week for this one. I thought you might enjoy finding out how I made it.


I tried about a million different decorations before settling on one that didn't drown out my rings. I wanted them to the focal point. This is also why I went with black fabric and not something more vivid.

Don't be intimidated by the lack of 101 I'm giving you. It really is a straight forward sort of project. If you know how to use a glue gun without burning yourself you can do this. Just be sure to dust off your imaginative brain space first. :)

The one important thing you might be wondering is how I got the pink fabric to stick to the shoe. I really just Mod Podged it on.

There are several different ways to make ring tubes that you can find online. One I saw used that colored foam paper stuff that you find in the kids craft section. I thought that might have been easier, but I had scraps of batting lying around so I …

How-To Pretend You Work For Anthropologie

The problem with Anthropologie is that they cost way too much money. WAY TOO MUCH! I mean, come on--these book boxes:

Cost $68-$188!

Do you have that kind of money?

I don't, but you know what I do have? I have a library with a cart full of free books that no one really cares about! So guess what I did... I made my own (and then I gave them away because I really don't have anywhere to put them).

Here's how.

I Am A Phoenix

This is a drawing I did right after my divorce, when I was trying to discover my life's course and who I was as a person. Divorce is this horrendously nasty thing that leaves a person with little to nothing of who they were before (at least that's how it was for me). My family was gone, at one point I had counted up blood/legal relatives that had stopped talking to me and it was nearly 60. Things were bad, but one of the recurring comments I heard from other divorcee's was 'Get bitter, or get better.' So I aimed for better. I came up with my own personal code of conduct (Quiet Dignity) and my own personal motto.

The motto the drawing is based off of is: 
"I am a Phoenix. I was born for the fire and I will rise from the ashes."
But, that's not all. Each aspect of the drawing has meaning. I researched these... so I hope I got them right. lol
I chose to make my image reminiscent of a mandala with the most significant parts at the very center. The shape i…
