Heck yes I am! And after the holiday season and 5lbs heavier (big fail from last post) I am coming back with a freakin’ vengence!
Despite knowing I was getting a bike for christmas…I technicaly did not get a bike for christmas. This is still in works unfortunately. In fact at this point I really only got a few things from my mother. Summer sausage from Johnsonville (home pride) that you hang out to dry, some christmas cd’s and a big old framed atlas that you can pin all the locations you’ve been, wanna go, and most liked. Rob loves it most I think. It even has a cute little plaque with our names on it.
Presents from his parents are to be a bit late since mail is a bitch when shipping overseas. But there will be nothing like a surprise christmas when they do show up!
Rob on the other hand got presents from me! See the post from my other blog for details. http://summers-angel.blogspot.com/2010/12/this-year-well-call-it-hanukka.html
As for me and that commuter bike, we’re looking into getting this frame: http://surlybikes.com/frames/cross_check_frame/ I’m hoping for the blue but its a new 2011 color so odds of me being able to get it aren’t to great right now so it will more than likely be the black one. We then will build it up with parts that we either have or parts that hubs wants to buy for it. We’re looking at possible disk brakes for the front. Rear ones may not work well since I plan to put a pannier on it. Can’t wait to get it built and I can’t wait till weather gets nice to use it!
As for the winter plan I am starting over. I’m not going to specify at this point just because when I list my objectives they usualy never end up happening. Least I will say is that starting tomorow morning I will be using the trainer again…hopefully regularly.
Speaking of weather. Germany has been getting slightly unusualy seasonal weather. We’ve had lots of rain/snow mixtures leading to very icey roads..then days with tons of snow. I haven’t seen that much snow in years since living in Wisconsin. Last year weather didn’t get as cold as this year either. Its been the teens all day today and sticking in the 20’s (farenhiet) most of the winter so far. At this rate it will be a very long winter….
And as for my life at this point…I started working again. A job that pays much better than my last. I have also completed a few more classes with 2 more coming up in the next few weeks. I still have a long ways to go before finishing my Associates. It’s kind of crushing when you compare the credits you have to the credits you need. Feels like the amount of time put in so far is so piddly.
Well it’s bed time. Toodles all!
