I may not have access to the internet for most of tomorrow. I will check in as I can. DH is hopefully getting Lasik tomorrow and I don't know if the doctor's office will have an internet connection I can use. Hope everyone has a great d... Read more

So earlier this month I joined a team where we role-play (like D&D). For gamer geeks like me it is a godsend. I love having a character explore traits and areas I would like to develop. The thing that makes this interesting is that in order t... Read more

Wow! What a day. So far I’ve gotten a fasting blood test, worked a full shift, and scheduled a vacation day so my DH can get Lasik on his eyes. He called the only place his insurance will allow him to get his eyes done is in San Diego – 8... Read more

WooHoo! I think that ankle is finally healed, at least as much as it’s going to anyway. I managed a solid 30-minute walk last night. I found that I was limping part of the time, but when I changed my stride a bit the limp went away. It wasn’... Read more

That dreaded day, Taxes Due Deadline April 15, 2010. It is amazing what a get it done now attitude has on a day. Our taxes have been sent in early enough that we have already received our refund. It wasn’t always this way. We still don’t do ... Read more

Over the weekend I took a break from exercise. It was a conscious decision and one I do not regret. I think my ankle feels much better for the light weekend. I did walk for several hours around Fry’s Electronics with DH. He was looking at up... Read more

Spark friends
Tuesday, April 06, 2010      11 comments

I am a spark friend hoarder. I used to stingy about my friends. I would only add people who had added me. Part of that is my natural shyness, part of it is a lack of confidence. I was afraid of the rejection I MIGHT get from a total strange... Read more
