Merry Christmas to Me

This is something I wanted since the late 1980s. I was super psyched to get this off of eBay and look forward to adding it to my collection of fun things. 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 » Read more

Welcome 2008

I return to blogging a year older and a little more relaxed now that the holidays are done. I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and are ready for a great year! I am in the midst of catching up with work, and getting everything back in order. I learned that the holiday time is more stressful and needs better planning now that we have 2 birthdays (me and Evan) and Christmas and New Years all within a little over 2 weeks. I figure by next week I will be ready to get back to posting more. Happy New Year! Read more

Post Holiday Hurrah

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I am back from a few day vacation in Washington DC with my family. We had a nice time in a great city! My grandparents were with us and I had the pleasure of going to the World War II monument with my grandfather who fought over in Europe during WWII. It was quite touching and a nice way to spend the holidays. A special thanks to my sister and her husband for putting us up and putting up with us. She did a fabulous job at getting meaningful presents and also making us feel at home! Now that I... Read More » Read more

Tis the Season

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I, for some crazy reason, agreed to go to one of the busiest malls in America yesterday with a friend. Of course it was supposed to be a quick in – quick out shopping experience, but as soon as you get there, it always turns into a “ohh, I also need to go to x”. Not only were the lines were hideous in the stores, one women told us the line to see Santa was at 3 hours! I just have a hard time dealing with all the people and the non-holiday spirit. I remember when Christmas seemed so special,... Read More » Read more

Happy Valentines Day

Nothing says Valentine’s Day like working on PHP homework all day! I have three days left of training and then I should be back to more regular blogging. Work + Homework + Work + Baby = Not much time left for anything else. Read more

Happy Halloween!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Although Halloween is not my favorite holiday, I do enjoy when companies throw in a little Halloween flare. I decided to play a little Yahoo! pool today and I quickly noticed that Yahoo! added a little pumpkin near the ball I was aiming for. Nice touch! On another note, check out the WordPress post a few days ago, as I recently updated it with the permanent fix! Read more

Christmas Wish List

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Well, it is that time again. Friends and family want to know what I want, so here it goes in order of interest: A Ping G2 3HL iron to complement my 4HL-SW G2 set. A new Ping G2 3 wood so I can replace my aging 3 wood that no longer can be considered my “go to” club when all else fails. A new case for my Treo 600 so I can replace the standard case. A 512mb memory card for my Treo 600 so I can store my Mac OS X Server PDFs, some music, and some other crap... Read More » Read more
