Busy Yes, Blogging Yes!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

It is hard to believe how little I have been able to actually blog about over the last two months or so. I have been busy with a number of big site projects – some that were the most complicated I have ever worked on (techland.com to name one) – my proudest recent achievement. I have also been busy with a number of home projects including re-painting, and a complete bathroom re-model. Since I seem to have so much free time – I also decided I needed to get a dog trainer to come in and train our dog Colby… Read More »

Give Credit to Single Parents

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I have to say – there are not too many days that go by where I think to myself at least once a day “I cannot imagine being a single parent”. I was sick yesterday and all I could do was lay in bed…moving was not a real option. Thankfully – I have A to help out with Evan so as soon as they got home – she kept him busy, fed him, got him ready for bed, and put him to bed, cleaned up, let Colby out, fed the cats, etc. I could not imagine having to do all… Read More »

Brr…

Thankfully I do not have to take the train to work, and walk across the Chicago river on days like today. We have been having highs in the negative degrees the last few days and it has been really challenging to even open the door. It is so cold that A has not had school for the last two days due to them not wanting the kids to have to wait for the bus in the morning. Poor Colby can barely make it out in the backyard for over five minutes. Funny how I now look forward to this weekends’… Read More »

Happy New Year

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 1 Comment

2008 has been one hell of a year. Personally: my son turned two, my sister had a baby, we went on a great trip to Disney World in the summer, I ended my golf season with my best round all year. Business: I had some great opportunities to work with some great clients and really develop my skills more than I have since I started doing web development. There were some less than happy times in 2008 as well. I lost my beautiful girl Triscuit in October to a bone tumor and her first friend Wish to lymphoma. Fortunately we… Read More »

My Boy Colby

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Here is a picture of Colby from this morning while he was stretching. You can see how big he is – and how much longer he is compared to Triscuit. We are working on getting some weight on him so he will be a bit more filled out but overall he is a very happy boy. He has shown a little stubbornness with moving, going down stairs, etc – but he is great around Evan and is extremely laid back. Last weekend some of our friends came over with their two greyhounds and all of them had a good time… Read More »

I have not been a very good poster lately – and I apologize. I have had a lot going on. We got our new dog Colby last weekend, been busy with all the WordPress 2.7 update/compatibility issues, preparing for Evan’s 2nd birthday, re-organizing my office space and development environment, getting ready for holiday travel, and just trying to take a break. I also have started the process of updating my web site Jappler.com from the ground up. I am not sure when you will see the new version – but it is in the works. Colby is doing good. Triscuit… Read More »

Meet Triscuit's Brother Colby

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

On Saturday, Evan, Amy, our friend Lori Ann, and I made the trek up to the greyhound kennel in Wisconsin. We had the pleasure of meeting, walking, and getting to know Triscuit’s half brother Colby. It is amazing how similar they are in so many ways. We look forward to getting to know him better next weekend when we pick him up and bring him to his new home.
