Getting Back on the Blog Wagon

Getting back on the Blog wagon. I apologize for being "absent" for so long. Taking a little blogging detour is a lot like a dieting and exercise detour. It's super hard to get back on track. I had so many commitments converge around the same time, plus with the fabulous weather we've been having I just couldn't get it all done.
Where do I begin? I previously mentioned having a endoscopy to check out some stomach issues. I'm sure you've all been dying to hear the results! Nothing earth shattering, but I did have a stricture in my lower esophagus that they were able to expand with a small balloon. It was causing food to stick and not pass into my stomach. Not a fun experience. I also have some erosion, likely cause by the bottle of ibuprofen I take everyday. :) A physical job creates a lot of aches and pains. I've been increasing some natural anti inflammatory foods to my diet and trying some topical creams for my back and elbow. The tendonitis has been a real pain. My work load is a little slow right now which is good for my elbow, but not so good for my bank account.
My baby boy graduated. From high school! Wow! Time truly does fly! He's not sure what he wants to do. Policeman (can't do police academy until he's 20 1/2), chef, auto body repair? He has lots of interest's and he's not even 18 yet, so he has some time to figure it out. He's working and saving his money and enjoying his summer.

His girlfriend of two years also graduated. Isn't she adorable? She is so beautiful and photogenic she could be a model. She's just as sweet and kind as she is beautiful.

And my husband turned 50! Half a century old. Apparently, he's now a member of the "Red Hat Society" and AARP. He joined a few of our other friends in this milestone. I guess he gets senior citizen discounts now? I thought 50 was the new 30 or something like that.
We had parties two weekends in a row to celebrate these HUGE milestones! Lots of family, friends fun and food! What more could you ask for?


  1. Oh lovely that's so fun. Except obviously the stomach thing. I took the week off last week and to be honest I think a break is a good thing especially when youre not well. Welcome back :)

    1. Thanks Mel! Glad you had a week off as well! When we live in a zoo, sometimes it's hard to get the monkeys off our back. :)

  2. So glad that you are back! Congratulations on the graduation and happy to hear you are doing ok. Take care of yourself and we missed you! :)

    1. Awww! Thanks Cindy! Glad to know I was missed. I've got lots of catching up to do! Have a great day!

  3. So glad you're back!! And wow, I can see why you've been absent. That is a lot going on! Congrats on your son's graduation and your husband's birthday. Sorry about the doctor appts. and general crappiness that is pain and soreness. I hope you've been enjoying your whirlwind lately and the nice weather though!! Glad to see you again! ;-)

  4. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod's. It works well, but isn't as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that's not an issue, but if you're planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod's larger screen and better browser may be important.
