  • Learning to Crochet

    So I’ve mentioned in my last three blog postings that I’m learning how to crochet, so I figured maybe it’s time to write a blog posting about it. I decided I wanted to learn to crochet on this year’s Wine Bitches trip1. My friend Cheryl was crocheting and she’d taught our other friend Cat how […]

  • He jests at scars that never felt a wound

    So on Monday my laser eye surgery got cancelled. Just as I was about to walk out the door to head to the clinic, I got a call saying that the laser had not met its parameters in the morning safety testing, so they had to cancel all the surgeries for the day because they […]

  • Finger Update

    Remember that time that I amputated my finger? That was a month ago, so I figured it is a good time to write an update on it. Note: I’ll leave the graphic photos to the end, so if you don’t want to see those, don’t scroll down. The descriptions will be slightly graphic, so if […]

  • Happy 6th gymiversary to me! 

    Today marks 6 years since I joined Strong Side. I’ve blogged before about the things I love about my gym, so I won’t rehash all that. But I still love it for all the same reasons! In the past year, I managed to hit some personal records (PR). Last summer I asked for a few […]

  • Summertime!

    OK, so it’s not technically summer until Friday, but you’d never know it from the weather we’ve been having. It’s sunny and warm and the sun is up until nearly 9:30 pm. Things I’m excited about for the summer, in no particular order: The New West Grand Prix – watching professional cyclists ride around and […]

  • This and That

    So nearly half the year is gone. WTF? I really feel like it was January about 5 minutes ago and now it’s June! And, as I tend to do when I haven’t blogged in a while, I’m going for a bulleted list! May was cray-cray. In addition to my week in Prince George for work, […]

  • Hawaii

    You know that thing where you go on vacation and then you come back and not only did all the work that you didn’t do while you were away not get done, but it seems to have made some new friends while you were gone so you now have about eleventy billion emails to deal […]

  • Does this injury make my thumb look fat?

    Three weeks ago (three!), I hurt my thumb. I was playing hockey and I was in screening the goalie and making a pest of myself (as usual) and a defencewoman from the other team knocked me to the ground, catching me off guard and I guess just the way I was holding my stick resulted in my […]

  • Hockey

    Played my first (and second) game of hockey since my injury! As previously mentioned, my physio told me that once it felt OK to skate *and* it felt OK the next day after I skate, I was allowed to play hockey again. And since I felt OK on Friday after skating on Thursday night, I was […]
