    No wingdings, praise be. Even though it's still Sunday on the west coast I figured I'd let this one fly since I'm up warming up a bottle for the infant.

    Back to full time office hours this morning. That's good, I guess...means I'm closer to riding a bike.

    Leaving ABQ this morning to drive my FJ over to Dallas, where it will be shipped to Germany for me. I'll see it sometime in May (I hope).

    oy it's an old man day, hobbling around stiff and sore from yesterdays ride. Was off the bike for over a month with a broken right index finger (kind of hard to brake without it) then I hit some steep trails for 3 hours. Yes it was worth every ibuprofen I ate last night and this morning. Working the wheelchair vans today but thankfully not driving the fatmobile.

    looked at paint chips and appliances yesterday.

    were talking about how to finish the basement. there's a back room w/ no windows that's gonna make a perfect movie room. were discussing furniture & electronics. I said I was gonna put the big screen tv we have down there. Wife says "No, I wanna keep the tv in the living room. Why don't you just get a projector?"

    Supposed to be nice all week. Give the snow a day or two to melt off then it'll be time to haul out the bike. :weee: The daughter has discovered some old cartoon on netflix from the nineties called "Sky Dancers". I can not imagine a sh*ittier television program, of course she loves it. :twitch:

    Good morning.
    Out of town all last week, skipped skiing yesterday which I'm now sure was a mistake.
    Weather forecast is for 70 by the weekend. WTF?

    Morning all. This time change messed me up. Its amazing how 1 hour can make such a big difference.

    Played with my new GoPro 3 Black edition over the weekend and brought the dogs on a errand. Our pitbull Charlotte loves truck rides.

    I was just talking to someone at the bike shop:

    "Did you guys ship my rims yet?"
    "We have to wait for the money order to clear, man."
    "Why? It's a USPS money order with holograms on it."
    "Everybody has lasers these days, man."

    Hard to argue with that...

    Whoop whoop!

    Skied until my legs gave out Friday with the hubby, this is my favorite place in the world :)

    Hiked 10-12ish miles on Saturday to Wallace Lake, past about a dozen waterfalls. Will have to post those pics when I get them off the camera :)
    Sat on the couch and read my books most of Sunday as my legs were toast :) Our plan had been to ride bikes, but, meh, we'll get to that next weeekend! :)

    G'morning. Chilling in a new office space today, stoked to be not on the kitchen table for a while. My back will thank me as well.

    I hope yours did a better job than ours, who missed things like the window that was actually just a pane of glass duct taped into the frame.
