Good morning, Kitschies. Long time, no post, huh? I returned from my vacay with my family late last week. I had a great time (GREAT time!) and I was sad to come back to Albuquerque. I came back to a very excited 5-year-old who proceeded to Velcro himself to my arse the following day. It's nice to know I was missed, but c'mon! LOL Anyway...I'm back in to the routine, but...and this is a *big* but...I exploded my computer at home yesterday. *sigh* I'm only connected at work now and it sucks. Seriously.
So, I don't have much of a post for you today. I do, however, have a few pics to share with you. The biggest reason I went to Cali was to participate in the Walk to Defeat ALS. My mom was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gherig's disease) 10 years ago. She is doing remarkably well considering ALS is usually terminal within 3 years (average), so every moment we get to spend with her is a blessing. I hate when we miss the walk and the hubs could tell I was getting depressed over it, so he told me I should go. Let me tell you...I am so glad I did! So. glad.
While I was there, I was able to skate the walk which was a nice bit of exercise. But...I managed to break a toe and let me tell you it sucks. It hurts. A lot. I wasn't even doing anything exciting - I was going over to pick Mason up out of a chair and I jammed my toe against the corner of the wall. It was all I could do to not scream obscenities (being in the presence of my son and my parents and all). I got to skate with the league in Bakersfield and in case you were wondering, skating (well, trying to skate) with a broken toe does not work very well. That practice KICKED my butt and the side of my foot went numb! Went to work on Thursday and had them take a picture of my toe - yep. Broken. So, I'm on orders to give my foot a break and even though I *really* don't want to, I didn't go to practice on Saturday and I probably won't skate tonight. Having a broken toe sucks WAY more than I thought it would. LOL
So, there ya go. You're updated. I missed you all and can't wait to get back to blogging. Cross your fingers that I didn't really explode my computer.
