Fun at the Rose Club Bake Sale

On Friday the 13th Rose Club did a Bake Sale at the Camrose Kodiak’s Game. I made Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins and labels for the bags with my roommate Theresa and my staff Marissa. Rose Club made $180.30 at the Bake Sale. Everyone had lots of fun and it was nice to see people and that they appreciated our baking. The money we raised will help with the cost of future Rose Club events.

Wheelchair Parking Gone Wrong!

We purposefully chose a parking spot equipped with a wheelchair sign and pared off to the side so that we would have lots of room to put the ramp out so that we could get my wheelchair in and out of the vehicle. When we came back out, this is what we found.

Someone, with a wheelchair sign in their window parked in between our vehicle and the next vehicle, completely blocking our ability to fold down the ramp. This was very frustrating! What you think when you see this?

I started my new job on Tuesday. I had to sign some papers, watch a safety video and we toured around. They have to make a ramp at the back door so that I can get out safely if there is a fire. My first day went pretty ok. I am starting on Monday’s and I look forward to it!

Thanksgiving Weekend

Sunday I had Thanksgiving dinner at my parents. My brother Joel  came home from Edmonton  and my other brother Luke came home from Calgary they are both going to school. Every Thanksgiving we always take a Fall Family Picture. But this year the weather wasn’t very cooperative and my Mom was under the weather. So we took our picture in the living room. We always have to match! We love doing them.Family PictureFamily Picture 2After pictures Mom, Joel and I played Rummikub. Once I got the hang of it, it was really fun. I can play it by myself and didn’t need help once I figured it out.

My Mom made a ham dinner and I got to have a piece of apple pie!

On Monday my staff Marisa colored my hair with hair chalk. It was fun and I liked how it looked. What do you think?

A Very Good Week… I got a new job!

Saturday Theresa and went to Flatliners at Duggan Cinemas. Theresa liked the Action part of the movie and I really like the medical part. They made their hearts stop and my heart stopped for 20-30 minutes when I was a baby. It was interesting for me to watch.

I use a therapy wedge to stretch my torso and my hips because when you sit all day you don’t use those muscles and the therapy wedge helps me strengthen them. My staff uses a motorized lift to put me on the wedge. I like to use a pillow for my elbows to keep them supported and comfortable. I watch TV while I lay on the wedge!

We have a reclining chair that I really like to sit in to watch TV as well. I have a pillow that supports my back that doesn’t move.
