In just a little while I will be heading up to downtown L.A. to meet with my orthopedic surgeon. Back in June, I underwent the first of three surgeries on my left leg. My appointment today isn’t just a routine follow up. This is the first time I’m seeing the surgeon in outpatient clinic since the surgery. And today he will be preforming an aspiration procedure on my ‘knee’ (or more accurately, where my knee used to be). Unfortunately, this is not my first aspiration so I am not at all naive as far as what to expect. Even though the doctor will ‘numb it up’ in my experience that doesn’t do a whole lot. So needless to say, I am NOT looking forward to this procedure.
I now have a new page up that lists all the giveaway blog hopes, that I know about, for the rest of the year. Over the next few days to weeks I will continue to build and add onto my blog.
This afternoon my 7th and 8th grade English teacher came over. I’ve made a point to stay in touch with most of my very favorite teachers from my public schooling days. She brought of Scrabble for us to play as I had never played it before! I always struggled with spelling from elementary all the way through high school. I was very surprised to find out that I actually did enjoy playing Scrabble. And at least during this first ever game, I was pretty good. We playing with each having 8 tiles out at a time. My first word down was brag. When I reached into the fabric bag and withdrew 4 more titles I was initially dismayed when I saw that I had drawn a LOT of vowels.
Even though it has been 6 days since the ‘birth’ of my blog it is still in its infancy. No sooner than one hurdle cleared in terms of building this blog, does another one show up! I had no idea that building a blog would be so complicated! Sheesh! I cannot wait until everything is up and running so that I can really get started. A couple weeks ago I participated in my very first blog hop. It was quite fun to visit so many different types of book blogs. After hopping along I decided that I wanted to start a blog of my own! So with the help of one of my very best friends, Jaclyn’s Musings was born.
Well, its been just about 24 hours since I first established my own domain. And I’m still quite clueless as how to format this site. So if anyone does have experience as to the inner and outer workings of wordpress.com blog building I’m all ears (or eyes since this is visual )! I’ve spent much of the day making call after call after call because of insurance billing issues. I’d love to hear about your day! Please leave me a comment about how you spent your day!
Also I’ve seen some other bloggers doing a 30 day get to know you topic a day. Once I get my blogging “sea legs” I think I just might try that as an intro into this giant blogging world. Also if there is anything that you’d like to me talk about please let me know! Hope you have a great evening!
Welcome! I’m still working on how I want my blog to look! Please bear with me as I learn all the ins and outs of being a blogger! In the coming days and weeks I hope to write and explore some of the topics that are important to me that you can relate to as well. If you have a suggestion of a topic you’d like me to blog about please let me know! As I figure out who exactly I am as a blogger! Please go ahead and leave me a comment and I look forward to getting to know you as well!
