out of the digital loop

Sorry about the lack of communication here lately. We sold my laptop and we still have not received the replacement one, so I took an involuntary which turned into a voluntary blog/internet break. It was kinda nice. I find myself distracted by the computer, not getting much accomplished. We had out desktop computer, but I cannot sit at a chair too long with my back problems.

So lets update everyone on what we have been up to. We went to San Francisco three weekends ago. It was beautiful. We brought the convertible, it was so fun driving through the city with the top down, we got to see a lot more of the architecture. We visited the seals at pier 39 and took a little boat cruise to under the golden gate bridge and around alcatraz island. It was a beautiful, warm weekend. We ended the day with a drive down scenic highway 1 and put our feet in the cold cold pacific ocean.

Two weekends ago we drove up to Oregon to visit with Paul's family and deliver the Wii we got for his mom. We had multiple family Wii bowling tournaments. We also got to watch our neice, Mandi, perform in the school play.

Last weekend we vegged!

My back has been horrible. I am waiting for the authorization to come through to take an MRI to see if the fusion has changed. I have had bruising and extreme tenderness around one of the bolt areas. I have another nerve block scheduled for May 7th, hopefully it helps as much as it did before. After that injection, we will begin the radio-frequency rounds where the small inpinged nerves can be burned away.

Caden lost his other front tooth and is on his way to losing another bottom tooth. He is growing like a weed! We will be going to Disneyland with some friends for a long weekend on his birthday. That is what we will be doing next week! I have not been to Disneyland since I was 8 years old! I am sure it has drastically changed. Caden is beyond excited!

Ok, so I thought that I would update you all since I have received a couple of worried emails.

'Oh yeah...guess what...we sold the Michigan house! It hasn't quite been finalized, but soon!
Once my laptop comes I will be able to upload pictures a lot more easily. So hopefully I can share some pics soon!

thanks for stopping by!
