Health “insurance”

I try to steer clear of opening any can of worms on this blog by talking religion, politics, UFO sightings or whether there is a Santa Claus. But, I have one downfall. I’m looking at you, health care.  My love/hate relationship with this subject could be because I make a good portion of my living…

Save $0.46 on us!

Well, it’s that time of year. My favorite time of year, actually. Thanksgiving into Christmas, when I get to decorate my home and REAL tree, write out all my cards, wrap gifts and bake goodies. Except for the fact that we don’t have a home this year. Not looking for pity here, just stating the…

Thanks and giving

Cliche or not, I would like to jump on the bandwagon (albeit a few days too late) and tell you what I am most thankful for this year. Well, besides the obvious thankfulness for surviving my blood clots in my lungs, that is. I am most thankful for y’all. This summer while we traversed the…

Recovery Part 3

I am happy to report that I feel a million times better than I did last week. Both physically and mentally! Seriously, I don’t know who hacked my blogger account and wrote that post …  Of course, I still have pulmonary embolism-related obsessions and worries.  Been trying to remember to take my blood-thinning therapy everyday…

Recovery

Have no fear, I am on the mend. At first, it was slowly. Too slow for my liking. It is not easy, nor fun, to go from 90 MPH to 5 MPH. But, this week has been a new week and every day I feel a little better. J said he is almost ready to…

Eastbound

Our Colorado time culminated with a James Buuuuffet concert. My 5th, J’s 14th. One of the main reasons I go to JB is for the tailgating entertainment. Plus, Jamie/SIL Adventure and Rachel/DocDoc had never been, so taking newbies is always a treat. Since they had to work (damn those people with real jobs), we couldn’t…

Strike a pose!

Back when we started our contract with BP, we got an e-mail from our boss asking if we were available for a photo shoot on July 19. Of course we complied, thinking it was probably related to the tour. As the photo shoot got closer, we received the contract and were surprised to see so…

Happy birthday J!!!

First of all, happy birthday to my old man!!  For the many, many years, he would tell people he was 22 when they asked his age. Lately, he’s been saying 31. Getting closer to his real age, but still in denial! J shares his bday with a number of our friends and friend’s kids ……

Hot Texas

There are only a few places this summer where we stayed for more than a few days. Texas was one of them. 10 hot days. I lost 2.5 lbs just by breathing in Texas. Thursday, it finally rained in Texas (yeah for them!) and Friday, as we were driving the last bit of the Longest…
