The Low Of The Week Is A High
After yesterday's ride, Wifey, B-Man and I headed over to the Mt. P. Christmas Parade. I pretty much hate the Holiday's, but on occasion I am moved to enjoy them. Last night was one of those times. I was super impressed with the sense of community that MP showed. No drunken yahoos, no white trash dropping F-bombs all over the place and beating their kids and wives. Just a good time.
B-Man got to visit with Santa and let him know what he needed, and me and Wifey got to freeze our butts off in the process. Still a good time though and worth the 2 block walk to downtown to see it. Between the nice ride yesterday, and the great time we had last night, yesterday was one of those rare moments that I (we) thought that we indeed made the right decision to move our asses up here. At least for a little while, to mentally regroup.
B-Man had a great time, got a bunch of candy, hung on my neck, and got to see a bunch of fire trucks, and the 4-H Queen. What else is there?? All in all a great weekend- B-Man enjoyed his first week at SHA, I got about 8 hours of "training" in, a BUNCH of work done on XXC, AND a bunch of house painting done. I could bitch if I wanted to about something, but I won't. I have all winter for that.
Today there was no ride, barring a 45 minute trainer spin. The bulk of the day was spent trying to paint Home Depot Orange faux bricks on the sun porch an off white. UG!! Took a llllllong time. It was like an endurance race, except painting and way suckier. BUT I got it done, and with time to then chill with a beer or two, and some White Trash Mexican food.
Time to wind it on down, do some reading, get to bed and get ready to do it all over again.
