It's been a slow week here for us. Just a bunch of the usual goings on. I've been spending my time studying, and Anton has been taking up the slack in my parental and wifal roles.
For those who care to know what scoping (the stuff I've been studying) is all about I will give you a quick run-down. Court reporters sit in on cases, depositions, etc., writing everything down in a shorthand called stenography. They then run this shorthand through a computer that translates it into English. However, the court reporter and the computer are not perfect so the resulting transcript can be quite a mess. The scopist's job is to take the messy transcript and edit it to turn it into a nice one without changing what was said, which is the tricky part. So you have to be able to read stenography and know all sorts of legal and medical terms and anything else that make come up in court. There's lots of grammar and punctuation involved too.
So that's the idea. And that's what I'm studying to do. This week I've been doing stenography. I'll be getting more into grammar next week and more fun after that. Then in a few weeks, if I can do this all fast, I'll be able to start working. My idea is to do this while Anton is going to school so he doesn't have to work. I can do it at home on my own time so it should work out nicely.
In other news, we took Ella to the doctor yesterday because she's been complaining about her stomach hurting everytime she eats. I'm pretty sure she has reflux, and the doctor took me at my word and prescribed her some Zantac. I've already forgotten to give her a dose. I'm terrible at remembering medication. It's why I could never use the pill. I'd be having babies left and right. :)
Also yesterday, Alex woke up in the middle of his nap crying and squirming and acting really not well. Then all of a sudden he threw up everywhere, except on me thankfully. Poor kid. It was nasty. He doesn't chew his food well.
Could all of this be any more random and full of stuff most of you probably don't care about? But I can't think of anything else worth rambling about. Maybe next week we can find something more exciting to entertain you all with. Take care!
