Our little strike/lockout at Canada Post was very anti-climactic and bordered on being dull. The strike has absolutely no effect on our work in Postal Transformation which is full steam ahead. Our project is moving like a steamroller across the country. The Winnipeg project will be complete by the end of September and we're moving right through Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary, and the "Big One" Vancouver will be an amazing project.
What else is going on....hmmmmm....let me think....ah yes....the "Russell." Our little boy is up to his old tricks. Many of you know that two weeks ago he broke his arm. I guess he missed Emergency. We broke a speed record getting in and out of the hospital. He broke his arm at about 8:00 in the morning...X-Rays in Selkirk...transfer by Ambulance to Children's....set the bone....cast...another X-ray and home by 1:30 in the afternoon. We were at a total loss as to what to do with the rest of the day.
One highlight for me was to have two experiences, in the past few weeks, to be reminded of how far both Nicole and Russell have come. Near the end of the school year we had a Kindergarten orientation with Nicole at her new school. It was quite an experience to see the school, her future classmates, and other parents. It is so hard to believe it was only a few years ago that we had no idea we would ever have a little girl like her and now she is heading off to school. I think both Susan and I are going to be total basket cases on her first day of school. I also had a unique experience to take Russell to his child development assessment. Russell is significantly behind where he should be due to his medical adventures. He is now almost three but is quite a ways behind where he should be related to his growth and development. It was very emotional to observe his assessment as he did the activities he was asked to do. I wasn't upset or concerned that he is behind. I was totally blown away at what this little boy can accomplish and how far he has come (he is nothing if not feisty) and he is making fantastic progress. We just have to remember "baby steps."
