Gymboree-The Tip Of The Iceberg

Within 20 minutes of getting home tonight (from Phoenix) I left for Gymboree on Lake Avenue. Yesterday, I had received an email saying there was a special clearance sale tonight after the store was closed. Mom and I ran (not literally) down there and got a bunch of stuff. I think the 5 girls are going to look adorable in these outfits!!!!

Total Full Price Cost: $1403.95
Total Price I Paid: $226.75
Total Items: 63
Percent Discount: 82.83%

I think this is my best shopping trip yet!

The Milestone Party

There are a number of pictures below from the Milestone Party but as I was going through the pictures I realized there were missing pictures than pictures. So what's missing? Here are a few things: (1) Almost all of Laura's family. They were clearly nowhere near my pictures. (2) A picture of all present HCBC members (Ruth is missing) (3) David (4) Photo of Ash and Laura (5) The great food spread (6) A decent picture of the birthday girls (7) The gifts (8) The dance floor (9) Rachel (10) Sydney being told to stay away from the pool






















































Sydney Rode a Camel








Phoenix Zoo Trip

We went to the Phoenix Zoo today and had a great time. It has been voted one of the best (Top 5) zoo's for kids and I assume that is because it is highly interactive. The kids favorite was petting the sting rays-both loved that and Sydney road a camel.


Overall nice zoo, very few hills, fun stuff to do, next time we will add feeding the giraffes to the agenda.


































Thanks For The Suggestion Google

Unexpected Joy At Sky Harbor


My flight was late but it gave me the unexpected pleasure of 30 minutes with Deena.



7.5 hours later I am back in Phoenix and Deena is in Milwaukee. Who knew you could fly to California from Arizona and drive back in the same time as a flight to Milwaukee (with a flight delay). Deena landed as I hit 51st avenue in Phoenix.

CHW is Now Dignity Health

Since 1998 I have answered my phone as CHW-IT (or variation-we were CHW-Information Management prior to 2001 and we were Information Technology for awhile). CHW is now Dignity Health and I will need to change the way I answer my phone. As I contemplated this on my way into work this work I began to think that I will use this opportunity to transition to Dell.

I know you are now questioning how that will sound. Will it be, "Dell, this is Kim how can I help you", "Thank you for calling Dell, this is Kim where can I transfer your call", "End User Services, this is Kim how can I help you?" "This is Kim", "Good Morning, Dell End Users Services, Kim Speaking"......Or maybe I will just forward my phone to Jeff Ronner (The Voice). I invite you to call me during this test period and provide your feedback. (Test period will end on Friday)

Pasadena: Home of The Cheeseburger

Pasadena is the home of the Cheeseburger (so legend says the Cheeseburger was first sold in 1922 on Colorado Blvd) and last week was Cheeseburger week in Pasadena.

We had one burger during the week: The Tops Special is depicted on the left. Small Burger, Pastrami, Lettuce, Tomato, Onions and Pickles.

PS Best Burger is supposedly at Pie and Burger.
