Even Higher Than We Thought...

Posted on April 16, 2009 at 10:14am 1 Comment

I was looking through one of my favorite celebrity gossip sites, UK's The Daily Mail, and came across an article about actor Seth Rogen's recent weight loss.

He is quoted as saying: 'I'm somebody who can barely breathe in Los Angeles, which is at sea level.

'I can't walk up a flight of stairs. Albuquerque is at an elevation of about two miles and the air is very thin.'

Was all the filming at Sandia Peak?

Kickin' it on Saturdays

A couple of years ago I switched my boys to a new league for playing soccer. We had been with another league but I just got tired of the antics - and found that Zia Futbol is a great place for my kids to have fun and learn the game.

And while spring soccer usually involves some cold games and practices (it was SNOWING during our last Friday practice!) we can usually count on some gorgeous days as well.

I love watch my children play, of… Continue

Albuquerque Aloft at Apache Elementary

Posted on October 3, 2008 at 9:16am 7 Comments

I just arrived home from a lovely morning at Apache Elementary School, one of the schools that participate in Albuquerque Aloft. Hot drinks, breakfast, and beautiful balloons - I couldn't ask for a better place to be.

Enjoy the photos!…



Those yellow lights and stripey lines...

Maybe you're in a hurry most days, or you just don't think about it, or you think it doesn't affect you because you don't have children. Maybe you really need to get where you're going, and there are too many of them, and it's oh so annoying to have to be slowed down this way Every. Single. Day.

But I am begging you - PLEASE be more aware of school crossings around Albuquerque, especially around middle and high schools where there are no crossing guards.

Fire in my yard...blech

Posted on July 31, 2008 at 1:04am 2 Comments

Pretty soon I may not have a house TO sell.

I've been lamenting that my house is in month 4 of being on the market. To add to the bad luck? I was just awakened in the middle of the night by a doorbell ringing madly; it was a neighbor telling me someone had set a small fire in my yard. Especially given my chronic insomnia, I was not happy about my one chance at slumberly bliss being messed with (I really want to use other language here but I am trying to keep it clean).

I… Continue

Yeah, I think I'm good; got a slew of them from someone on Craigslist. Thanks for asking!

Jessica - Have you found enough boxes for moving?

Robin actually I've applied for all 4 of us. For my sons actually it would be kind of a "co-insurance." So far, my application has been "lost" (I applied July 17) and I have to call today to see if my sons' application is still around.

Hey Jessica -
Nice to meet you today. Hope your schedule allows you to join the choir!

Actually, I work for a KAFB contractor, part time. I have degrees in communication and in office management, but have to admit my main expertise is words. I love editing!

Thanks for stopping by my page! I was born in Charleston, but actually lived in a little place called Big Chimney. My summers were mostly spent in Huntington, where my great aunt lived. I loved the rose gardens there - what a beautiful place!

Anyone who is West Virginian by birth is good by me. As a matter of fact my son was born in the same town I was, then we moved here one month later. All he knows about West Virginia is that it is where Nana and Pawpaw live. That and he cheers for the Mountaineers.

Ha, well, I have to admit, most of my activities revolve around my kids ;) That being said, I do enjoy the stuff like BioPark, Tingley Beach, and museums, even without my boys. If you're into racing at all - or just enjoy cool cars - I hear the Unser museum is pretty cool - my kids have gone but I haven't made it over yet.

One thing that I enjoy when I can is going to a concert at the Sandia Casino amphitheatre - it is a nice small venue and it is a great place to spend an evening.
