Blowing the Dust Off

Oh Hai.

So, I haven’t posted much because I haven’t had much to write about.  Blah blah knee surgery coming blah blah.  Blah blah physical therapy blows blah blah. 

Honestly, there’s nothing else going on.  We are heading to VA for the long weekend for my last hurrah while I have two good legs to stand on.  I’m all cleared for the surgery and now I’m just waiting for the 13th.  Albeit, impatiently.  I’m so ready for this to be over with.

So, that’s why I haven’t posted much.  You don’t want to hear all the boring “I don’t wanna have another surgery” stuff.

Will probably post more once I”m post op.


Did Ya Miss Me? Didja? HUH?


We got back from Colorado last Wednesday and we had a great time.  Now I go back to work for a month before being off indefinitely for knee surgery.  Yay.

We toured over 1500 miles in Colorado.  We did bull nuts in three cities.  NOM.  We visited Chappel, NE and had bull nuts at Bergies:

We visited the family in Sterling for the family reunion, and we played Texas Hold ‘Em two nights in a row (um, and were eliminated BOTH nights).  It was great seeing family over Memorial Day weekend.

We went to Estes Park, and had more bull nuts.  And a Wapitini (omg – vanilla vodka, vanilla schnapps, and apple juice).  And went to a wine tasting.  And saw a baby elk.

Wait For Me Mama!


We spent some time with family at the Good Guys Car Show in Loveland, CO…my cousins are big car buffs and travel in style.  They entered their 1934 Model A – souped up, of course.  I personally want a 1959 Cadillac El Dorado…red, please.

I’m so classy.

 We went up to Cripple Creek, but not to gamble (ok, I put $1.00 in the video poker and won $.50.  I cashed out while I was ahead) but to go to the Bordello Museum and the Jail Museum.  Again, I show just how classy I can be.

My husband relived some of his youth at the jail museum…

We went to the Garden of the Gods the next day and it was absolutely gorgeous.

So, that”s our trip in the condensed version.  How”s by you?
