Not much of an update

If you were following twitter today, you know all the news. Mom’s surgery went well, she should be coming home tomorrow morning. They won’t know for sure about radiation for a couple of days but it looks like she may not need it.

I’m home, catching some z’s, and then headed back to the hospital in the morning.

Got to see Caribou and Matt, which was awesome. I wish they had moved to Colorado with us! Thank goodness for facebook and skype…

Happy New Year!

I will begin 2009 with a Colorado driver’s license, which makes me inordinately happy.

We had a lovely dinner tonight, with good conversation, and that’s not such a bad way to send out 2008.

Spouse and I have fake champagne (California kind) and will toast at Mountain Time New Year. I even dusted off the champagne flutes from our wedding. We are quite fancy and important.

My first task of 2009 will be to put together a wire shelf for my closet. If I’m quick, I can get it done THIS year.

Hope you all have a happy and safe New Year. Remember to spend some time on New Year’s Day doing something you want to continue to do all year.

I have finally arrived in Leadville. Well, I arrived in Leadville yesterday. It took approximately 24 hours of driving but was largely uneventful.

My awesome friends in Saginaw gave me a gift of meaningful road snacks and a great mix CD. What are meaningful road snacks? The Dark Chocolate Raisinets that a guy at the movie theater told me were “the best thing I have ever put in my mouth.” The Ho Hos that Spouse asked me to buy for Carly, because Carly really wanted them, but when I got home it turned out they were just for Spouse. The Mint Milano cookies that are my favorite. You get the picture.

The mix CD had memorable songs from memorable events in the last three years, which was fantastic. I pretty much jammed out all the way across country. And the first thing I did (once I was functional) was hook up the wireless connection. Because I’m a geek like that (not internet obsessed or anything).

Today we’re taking our guests out and around the local area, hopefully eating some great food, and picking up odds and ends. And then spending the next three weeks unpacking boxes.

Pirates!

Pirates!

The vest and jacket came from DressLikeaPirate.com

Hat and sword from the local Halloween depot.

My boots and riding breeches, shirt via ebay.

In case it’s not absolutely clear – I freaking LOVED THIS COSTUME.

With the bride and groom

All friends have been cropped or blurred, so as to protect the [not so] innocent. And now that the wedding is over, I’ve moved on to a more extreme haircolor.

I had the biggest hair of my life. All I was missing was a sash and tiara, like, such as.

The wedding was a blast. My Halloween costume rocked. There will probably be pictures, once I figure out who doesn’t want their visage linked to mine on the intarwebz.

In the meantime, I’m linking this video – which I love:
