Making Progress, Slowly

In: Uncategorized

Well, I only got to wear my candy cane cast for one week, and then they put me in the evil Stormtrooper Moon Boot. I also had a wonderful knee scooter we rented for two weeks which helped immensely. After a week on crutches, my palms were bruised and my underarms were pretty unhappy with […]

Candy Canes and Everything Sweet

My ankle stabilization surgery was on December 5th, and it went quite well. They were able to tighten the ligaments that I damaged from figure skating years ago, and were able to suture up the almost 1″ tear that I had on my peroneal brevis tendon. They even cleaned out a lot of the scar […]

Down for the Count

In: Uncategorized

Finally had my diagnosis today, after x-rays and MRI’s. I guess my days of competitive figure skating have caught up with me. It looks like my ligaments in the ankle are no more. So the tendons took on the extra work, and by getting hot and stressed ended up getting a split in them. So […]

Goodbye, Steve Jobs

In: Uncategorized

While I was at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta this past week, I returned to the hotel one night to catch up on news with my iPad – the first article was regarding the death of Steve Jobs. I immediately tuned the TV to CNN.  It wasn’t a surprise, as an Apple fan I knew he […]

As part of the O’Reilly Media Blogger Program, I had the opportunity to review this book called App Savvy by Ken Yarmosh. Buy: App Savvy The App Store has its own idiosyncrasies that can be confusing for a first-time developer trying to learn the creation and app submission process. Before you launch your first app […]

Merry Christmas!

In: Uncategorized

About this time last year, we spent the weekend at Disneyland and Disneyland’s California Adventure. It was a wonderful Christmas present, as the parks were decked out in the season’s finest. The lights were beautiful, and so were the parades, snowflakes, It’s a Small World, etc. This year’s a bit busier, so we’re staying in […]

Half-Marathon? Are You Crazy?!

In: Uncategorized

Well, kind of, I guess. Considering the fact that I do not run. I do not know HOW to run. I have little interest in running unless chased by a grizzly. But some friends have talked me into running a half-marathon. Not just any half-marathon, but the DISNEYLAND Half-Marathon. About the only thing that can […]

What to Do When Your TV Dies

In: Uncategorized

While I was cooking spaghetti Friday evening, Chuck got home and sat on the La-Z-Boy and flipped on the TV. A soft pop emanated from the direction of the TV and the screen remained black. We dug out the manual and started up our engines to Google-Fu. Found the replacement bulb online, but only the Sony […]

2010 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

I had THE most wonderful time last week at the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque. I blogged all about it on our balloon site, Sonoran Star. Here are the pics from the photo gallery we put together. I’ve got a YouTube video coming, but I’ll probably wait until this weekend to start editing it. This was […]

Since GoDaddy’s junked-out, crapola servers ate my blog post I just spent 30 minutes on, I’m now going to regurgitate the abridged version of the post I just lost. For my birthday this year, my wonderful husband bought me an iPad! 3G, 32gb of magically delicious Apple technology. Yeah, I’m a bit of a fangirl. […]
