And then I went to Chicago

6 Oct


After Kerry’s aunt and uncle came to visit, I headed out of town for the week to Chicago for work. Mom decided to come with me since she counts Chicago as one of her favorite cities. She seems to get the better end of the deal- I work all day and she gets to sightsee, shop and do fun things. It is nice to have someone to meet up with for dinner after a long day.

Even though it is work travel, I always try to do some touristy things when I am traveling. I realized that I had never been to the top of the Sear’s Tower (well, now Willis Tower) in my umpteen visits to town. So, we headed there and got some great views. Mom was a little unsure about the whole Sky Deck thing but it was pretty cool. As you can tell, I am still wearing really attractive footwear.


I keep forgetting to get the pictures off her camera. There is a photo of more than just our feet out there.

I guess if you have issues with heights, you probably would not like this view.


The weather was great, the work was exhausting, the food was great and it was fun to explore the city more!

Slowly Getting Back on Track

17 Aug

In case you were curious, foot surgery is really not that much fun. It has been a little over two weeks and things are starting to improve. I had some complications at first- not being able to walk being the biggest. I then had the pleasure of being put in a hard cast up to my knee. And, then I ended up in the ER with symptoms of a blood clot. Luckily, it was just a chest cold. Then, I finally got out of the hard cast and was having ankle issues. Now, I am finally on a upswing but still in a walking boot/cast thing for 5 more weeks.

Who knew one little bone could cause all sorts of issues? I now have franken-foot.


Kerry has been chief child entertainer, household runner, driver, dog walker, dinner maker and nurse. He has done a great job on all his assignments. Last weekend when things were not so great- he spent time at the park.

We are slowly getting back to our regularly scheduled programming.
