Today Lindsay and I celebrated the end of her most grueling semester ever. We went grocery shopping together (yes people, we actually think that’s fun), then walked to Whole Foods for lunch. Lindsay had a salad and an amazing soup…Roasted Eggplant Soup. I had a crabmeat California roll, which was super-yummy, although I was a […]
Things that are very difficult to do with a broken wrist
Tie your shoes. Button your pants. Shave your left underarm. Brush your teeth. Floss. Wash dishes. (Hooray!) Sign a credit card receipt. Sleep comfortably. Eat with a fork. Shower. Cut up a cantaloupe. Use scissors. Take photographs. Use a mouse. Start a car. Fasten a bra. Blog.
So, really, no more monkeys jumping on the bed.
I guess that’s what I get for making fun of Justin’s broken thumb. I went to the orthopedist today, and after poking and prodding my wrist, he found a tender spot and decided I needed x-rays. He thinks that I might have fractured some obscure little bone in my wrist, and decided that I needed […]
It’s a girl!
Congratulations to Rene and Rochelle Carlin, proud parents of new foodie-to-be, Penelope Lucia Carlin. She was born on April 25 and is currently being spoiled by her one and only aunt, Leti. I got to hold Penelope for a bit on Friday afternoon, and she was definitely cuddly and cute, with super-long fingers and toes […]
I met my friend Cynthia at Threadgill’s last Friday, just to chat and catch up a bit. We worked together at WIC back in the day, and now we’ve both moved on to happier lives. She’s expecting a baby boy next month, and I just wanted to wish her and her husband congratulations! In other […]
Happy birthday to me…again!
I love gifts that keep on giving. For my birthday this year, I received a lump of funds from my parents, and a Barnes & Noble giftcard from my sister and her family. It took me quite a while to decide what to do with those funds. Here it was, the chance to buy whatever […]
Just FYI, the boombox is going to my dad for his pickup truck…it seems fitting since he’s the one that bought it for me in the first place, about ten years ago…
Going once, going twice…
Does anyone out there need an old, but perfectly good boombox? Our spring cleaning turned up a few things we’re ready to get rid of, and this boombox, my very first CD player ever, is one of them. It’s actually a CD/radio/tape player, so it has that retro feel. It’s pretty big, about 2 feet […]
I love my shoes
Now, I love my job, but after five or six hours of standing on hard tiled floors, I was coming home with an achy lower back and tired feet. I had been wearing my Nike Shox, and I figured they would do the job, but not so. By Saturday afternoon, I sounded like I was […]
My love-hate relationship with my computer
Just a post to say…I hate computers! I just wrote up a whole blog with several links and a photo and everything, but somehow it’s gone, not saved, nowhere to be found. So you all have to wait to read another exciting post until I have the patience to try it again. Ugh. Computers. I […]
