Little Break


Some of you might wonder why I am not in class this week or why I will be absent next week and for other weeks as the semester goes on. I know I don’t have to share this with anyone, but I want to explain my situation a little bit. This week I received a phone call from my mother and she is very sick. I am not sure of all the details, but she is in the hospital and there is a big team of GREAT doctors looking after her. My father has currently left his work in order to be with my mom and well, I will be leaving shortly to go and join them during this difficult time. It was something I was definitely not expecting, everything was going so well, I am loving all my classes in university (maybe for the first time in my life) and I am just eager to learn. Although I will be making regular trips to Quebec during the rest of the semester, I will be back and participating in class when I am not in Quebec. Family comes first, but I am so in love and interested with everything I am learning. I will try my best to keep up with assignments and blog posts, but if I am away, you might not hear from me until I am back in Saskatchewan. I also want to thank all my teachers from the University of Regina for being understanding and supportive during this time, it really means a lot to me and my family. Things might change as time goes by, but for now all we can do is have a positive attitude and look at the bright aspects of life.

  1. Rose, if you need any notes or ANYTHING for this class please just ask. I have been in your shoes recently and you are so right, family come first. Take care…

  2. Be well Rose. And all the best to you and your family. Thank you for keeping in touch via the blog and elsewhere.

  3. Rose, my thoughts are with you, your mother, and your family. You were already an excellent student before you left, and I have no doubts that you are capable of doing incredibly well in this class. But of course, you’re in the place that you need to be right now – with those that you love when they need you, and when you need them. Keep up as much as you can, and let me know if there is anything I can do. Take care.

  4. Wishing all the best to you and your family. I am glad that your mother has a great team of doctors, as you said, and I hope that she gets well soon. Do not be afraid to send an email at any time if you have questions about the class or any of the assignments.
