December (2000) I joined the hundreds of thousands of people who have gotten Lasik surgery and are now glasses free.  I wore glasses for over 20 years and now I see 25/15!  It's wonderful to be able to wake up in the morning and not have to reach for my glasses in order to start my day.

    Here is where I got my surgery done.  Dr. Motwani is the doctor who did my surgery and is also designated as the San Diego Padres official eye surgeon.

It's now 7 years later, and my vision is still very good.  I definitely don't miss the need for wearing glasses or contacts to be able to see across the room or even just a few feet away without things being blurry.

I (for obvious reasons) no longer use my LANSolutions address for e-mail correspondence.  So if you need to reach me please use my address.

I try to check my mail daily, but it's not a guarantee.  So if you write, please don't be offended if I don't get back to you in a timely fashion. =)
As of May 30, 2007, I have officially changed my job title to "stay-at-home mommy".  I left my company on good terms so I may or may not come back and do contract work for them if I find that I have the time to do so.  After being with LANSolutions for about 8 years I had changed to telecommutting work for them, working as a “Remote Monitoring Specialist."  They’re based out the Sorrento Valley area and I’ve previously done a lot of work Downtown, Orange County and occasionaly in Hawaii for them when my original job description was Systems Engineer.  This role involved playing Sys Admin for 4 hour shifts at various client sites, where they may or may not have had an IS staff or had a small IS staff and needed additional IT help.  However, that all changed in April 2007 when my parents no longer were going to be watching after Kai on a daily basis and I became a "part-time" Stay-at-Home Mommy.  In order to provide some additional and regular income to the household, I worked out a deal with my company to be able to continue working on our remote monitoring service but from home; hence the title change.

So I worked a couple of hours or so from home but over time, the "little boss" at home needed more and more of my time in the mornings when I needed to be available for client needs, and I became more and more of a night owl to find time to do stuff I couldn't during the day.  However,  night time hours weren't going to work out well for our client needs.  So I finally signed off on all of that official paperwork and said my goodbyes.
