Princess Diana

Twenty years ago today Princess Diana died. Wow it seems like yesterday. I remember getting up early to watch her wedding with the twin and also getting up early to her funeral. So very sad. #PrincessDiana #Diana20

Foot update

Another day, another doctors appointment. Took some new X-rays, which is always fun. The foot is healing nicely, but not as quickly as I would like or hope. Still lots of pain and swelling, especially at the end of the day which apparently is normal and might also be from all the tissue damage from the past surgeries. If it continues to heal and there are no issues I should be able to get rid of the boot in about 4ish weeks, which would actually be a total of 8 weeks.

New book review

My latest book review has been published and its Robert Twigger’s “White Mountain”! He is a wonderful travel writer, you know the type- brilliant and snarky, and so when his book arrived so I was very excited to read it. Its a fun trip around the Himalayas Mountains and I liked it so much I gave it a starred review.

10 year anniversary gift

My 10 year anniversary gift from working at the UMN has arrived, as my official anniversary date was August 1. I found it in the library mailing area and I suspect that its been sitting there for 1+ weeks before I hiked up one level to check if it was there. You would have thought that with my limited mobility someone in my department might have brought it down to my office, but I guess not. So the list of items to pick from for 10 years were pretty limited with choices being: a sweatshirt, t-shirt, golf balls, a flag, and some drinking glasses. I picked the sweatshirt.
