We just removed a small nut (you know, the kind that goes with a bolt) from Rosemarie's nostril. It required me holding her down, and Bob operating the flashlight and tweezers. Rosie was giggling the entire time.

Rosie's drawing

Rosie scribbled on a piece of paper with crayon then brought it to me, saying, "Look at this picture of a dog named 'Fenja' and a really cool girl named 'me'!"

So I'm going to be applying for a state "Emergency Substitute Teacher" license, so I can hopefully pick up some work while Bob is on a shortened work week.

I'm not sure how much good it will do. It will cost money to get the license, and it could take as long as 6 weeks. I'm not sure how long it takes on average. Since I don't know how long Bob will be on shortened work weeks, I could pay for the license, order it and not actually do any teaching before I get it and apply at an actual school district. However, once I do it, it is done. I would have to renew it, but I wouldn't have to go through the application process again. This could be handy in case of a possible strike in 2010 when Bob's union will be negotiating with his company for the new contract.

So that's the news.
