New Blog – Check it out!

I've decided to create a new blog dedicated to the problems I've had with my feet in an effort to tell my story and to help others who may have similar problems, as well as to thank those who have helped me. Please, don't hesitate to visit, and add it to your blogroll! Here's the address for my new blog, Beautiful Feet:

Yes, it's hosted somewhere other than Blogger. So, yes, I'm trying something different. When you visit, let me know what you think.

The same rules apply there as here: no foul language, no name-bashing, and comments are moderated for everyone, just so it's fair and stays clean. If you have any questions, you may refer to the post that's already there, or scroll down in this blog to find my rules for posting.

I'll see you there or here! This blog will remain on this site... At least for now. :)

Baby shower time!

So, this Saturday, I'm throwing a baby shower for two of my closest friends: Random Dan and Intolerant Elle, who blog together as Random Intolerance. Yes, it's a couple's shower. It will be the first one I've ever attended, and I'm actually planning it. I'm surprised that so many people have already said they're coming – guys included!

The Random Intolerants are expecting a baby girl at the end of October. I'm getting very excited to see her and hold her and (hopefully) be able to babysit her once in a while. My hubby and I have made jokes about her and my nephew ending up together when they get older. ;) Depending on who you talk to, those jokes are well received.

The guys, and whoever else wants to join them, will be playing poker after the gifts have been opened. Elle said, though, that her husband's family tends to break out into poker games at the drop of a hat, so we'll see how it works.

I'll give you an update close to or just after the shower. Nice to see you all again! :D

Update after months-long leave

There are a number of reasons that I haven't blogged in recent months, work being one of the most important reasons. Sometimes, those who are in the media business need to keep a tight reign on the kinds of extracurricular activities, if you will, that we engage in. I didn't want my co-workers and listeners figuring out who I was online, and harassing me or causing problems for me at work.

So, since a lawyer I've never met decided to teach me a lesson after I accidentally cut his wife off while driving a company vehicle, I don't have that job anymore. Sad, I know. Especially since I was loving that job.

Also, I just underwent my 19th foot surgery last Monday, to remove a metal plate from my right foot that was put in during one of my reconstructive surgeries three years ago.

And an update on that adorable nephew of mine, who's pictured below: He's now 7 1/2 months old! He laughs these big belly laughs, smiles all the time, and absolutely loves his aunt: me. :D

I'm going to try to post on my blog more often, too. So, if you just happened to be stopping by to see if I'd actually added anything lately, thank you. Pass it on that I'm back! I'm hoping to contribute to the next Lutheran Carnival, too. I just have to come up with something to post about. ;)

Until next time!
