"You tiger now"

A few quick updates...

I'm tiger now.

This was caused by a cleat/pedal full of a mudish substance, giving me a false sense of being clipped in, going down a little technical section standing with weight back, subsequently being bounced off to the right of my bike when said cleat was not actually clipped in to said pedal, and thus... tiger. All I remember is working really hard not to fall down and then dragging my right leg along my front tire somehow. Lovely. Later I fell into a rock and got another lovely case of rock-rash on the front of the same leg. Ouch. There's a nasty little hiding under my red stripes. Rarrrrr.

I'm teacher now. Almost. Kids come monday. My class is now at 24 and still growing. Eek. Here's a picture of my classroom as of yesterday -- although it's already changed slightly.






Had a *fun* adventure to the ER with hubby yesterday to make sure he wasn't going to die of a blood clot. Gee, that was fun. Luckily he's good -- no clot, no dying, no winter full of only riding indoors (that would've made for a LONG winter). I'm glad he's ok. Turbo is too.



Meow.

Hello tiger. Glad you survived wet rock night. :)

heelarious. very exciting the pictures of your new classroom. I like how somebody thought, hey it will be really festive if we mix in random color tiles with the white ones. That will make it fun. The classroom will always clash with everything, including itself.

Haha, yeah, the random colored tiles is an interesting addition to the floor. Schools like to make their floors as ugly as possible for some reason.

Perhaps they should carpet the rest of that room. Yuck! What is up with all the injuries. Chris looks like he's on the 15-day DL. If you guys keep taking tumbles, I am going to take away your mountains and bring them to Wisconsin.

Turbo is so photogenic!

I can't wait to hear how things go with your first day of classes, and I'm glad that Chris is okay and isn't dying or looking to get a leg amputated.
