What's new in Marni-world?
*Got a new TV -- well, a hand-me-down from the parents, but new to us! It's HUGE and awesome! We now also have a DVD player that actually works. It's like we have been catapulted into the 21st century!
*I finally made an appointment with the fertility specialist doctor person. That'll be on the 20th. I'm nervous, but excited too somewhere deep down inside. Hopefully they can tell us something productive.
*My Kindergarteners are nuts. Plain nuts. Mixed nuts perhaps.
*Grad school has been good. I'm enjoying sitting and being taught TO for the first time in a long time. I find I actually pay more attention and actually care about my homework. I must've matured somewhere, somehow in the last five years.
*Chris got my Fuel all cleaned up and spiffy to sell. Anyone want or need a 14" full suspension WSD Fuel? It's a great bike, too bad it's a tad too small and I'm now addicted to the big wheels. I'm shopping around for its replacement. There are far too many good hardtail 29er choices out there. Luckily the whole "cheap" thing narrows it down a bit.
*I am SUPER excited for this week's night snow race on Saturday night in Leadville. After having to miss this classic last year from being sick, I'm half tempted to just wear a hospital mask to work the next few days. Today a girl literally coughed into my mouth as she read me her writing. Ewwww, gross. Where's the disinfectant?
*I rode 50 miles on the road bike last weekend, intended to blog about it, but was far too wiped from the whole experience to get it down on the computer. Let's just say the wind was horrendous that day. I wanted to ride the whole century with Chris and some friends, but had to turn back because of 1) slowness and 2) homework and wifely duties at home.
*Chris and I had a climbing date on Monday night. We had a great time, however, it is wednesday and I'm still sore. I climbed a lot of overhanging/roof-y stuff and apparently that worked the muscles around my ribs... a lot. I'm getting pretty solid on the 5.9s and stepping up into the 5.10s.
*Today was in the upper 60s and tomorrow is supposed to be even nicer. While it is not Spring -- far from it in fact -- it is starting to feel like it, at least for a few days. I wanted to ride after work, but need that pesky sun to stay out a little later to motivate me to get out.
I think that's about it. Between work, school, climbing, biking now and then, and eating my fair share of whipped cream, the blog has been abandoned. I need to get back to it.
Hopefully this will help me start.
