At work again... 17 hour day yesterday. That was a hoot.
Last Easter was way better:
Was out for a trail ride Easter Sunday on Fromme with a couple of buddies. The more adventurous of the 3 of us (not me) wanted to check out an old alternate route the to trail we had planned to ride. It took us a little farther out on the "darker" side of the mountain. It was old and beat up and not a great section of trail. (This was now all a descent, for the most part, we'd finished the long climb) As we got back to the trail we'd planned to ride, his phone rings. It was my wife. She was going into labour. Apparently she'd been trying me for about a half hour but we were out of cell range. (at least on my crappy service provider...)
That was one wild ride down the mountain.
Today is not going to be anywhere near as much fun.
long day yesterday, and the damn dogs decided I wasn't sleeping in today. Rain clouds are gone so I'm going to ride before I have to do a lot of yard work. I'm going to BBQ a chicken this afternoon. that is all
Last day in Florida. Weather got really nice. Tomorrow the long drive home which I am actually looking forward to. I have driven less than 20,000 miles in 4 years so its fun to get the car on the road.
Saturday involved many hours spent driving to and from the city, paying $45 (! that's with a $5 discount coupon, too) to park, futzing around at the NY auto show with wife + baby + undergrad buddy, then excellent Thai out on the town. We were out of the house with the kid in tow from 9 AM - 10:30 PM or so, by far the longest day away yet.
Today involved changing the oil on both cars, completing about 25% of a backup camera installation on the Acura, as well as hanging out with/showing off the baby to a high school friend + grilling steaks and veggies.
Busy busy busy. I'm almost looking forward to the slower pace of the work week…
