7 Quick Takes Friday (7)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween and All Saints Day this week. My daughter dressed up as Snow White for Halloween and I put together a Cinderella Pumpkin!
Last week I didn't have a chance to post much because I was completing a week long rotation in a school system. I had a great time and learned so much more about how public school systems are run (I always went to Catholic school). I think OT in the school system may not be for me right out of school. The OT I worked with did everything very much on her own. I'd rather have another OT around to ask a million questions!

Last week I wrote about how I am making my way through my 20's and why I feel so fortunate to be living in them now. These years are ever changing and very humbling years. But they are also exhilarating!

My prayers go out to the families who were hit by hurricane Sandy. Those that lost their lives and to those who lost their belongings and their power. 

We are on hopefully our final look for a rental house. We need to be moving in 1 month. Who knew finding a rental house could be so stressful and time consuming!

So many people around me are sick right now. If that is you, you may want to try one of these:

 If you are looking for dinner ideas for this coming week, you may want to try out my Potato and Leek Soup! It is one of my favorites.

Head back over to Jen's for more quick takes!


  1. That's awesome that you had your rotation! I really want to see what the school setting is like, but I don't have that for any of my rotations. Good luck with the search for a rental house! :)

    1. Thanks Caitlin! I think (hope) we found a house yesterday. I had a really wonderful time at the school, but I will say it is a lot different then any other place I have been. I think other places for rotations may be better for more hands on experience:)

  2. Always enjoy your Friday posts...and prayers your way as you ready for a move! Happy weekend!

  3. Glad you are enjoying your rotations. Great pumpkin!
    Good luck in your house search.

  6. That Cinderella pumpkin is so cool!

  7. Hahaha love the sick people picture ;) And I really enjoyed your post about your reflections on being in your 20s. I've been spending a lot of time just thinking about life lately and your post really helped. So thank you!
