- Blizzard has close to 1,000 kilometers of road miles on him since March 1st. He even has some trail miles too. Last Saturday we did a 66K ride along back roads, trails and busy roadways. I'm starting to be more confident riding with traffic, but trust me, I will never become complacent. I'm considering taking the Can-Bike Program that is put on by Canadian Cycling Association, Transport Canada and the Ottawa Police Department. Of course this will be something I will do after I finish putting the 20lbs of Sh*t into the 5lb bag.
- Speaking of stress, I'm just about at the point for saying the Fbomb with respect to submitting taxes. After working all day on a computer, the last thing I want to do is go home and figure out CR's software program. After completing over 43 submissions towards medical expenses from when I blew my meniscus and had pneumonia this past fall and winter, (yes, each invoice has to be done individually with date, amount, what it was for and who is was paid to), they said I had a small error, click here, so I did and it deducted OVER $300.00 from the total it said I was going to get back! GRRRRRRRRRR. So I dropped the Fbomb, turned off the computer, had a glass of wine and watched some mindless T.V.
- I forgot to mention that last Sunday I took a bike maintenance course, it sure looks easy when you know how. Needless to say, I still don't know "how" and am dreading the day I get my first flat tire. (I need a Man-Servant). After the course we were to go on a nice Sunday ride with the group and enjoy the day. Well, I'm not too sure if I was still tired from the 66K the previous day or whether the wind (which was blowing at 45K) bonked me out, but the group took off and dropped us. When we finally kinda, sorta caught up with them, I yelled to them to just go ahead and not bother to wait for us. After that pressure was taken off of us. We had a perfect ride!!!
