April 2012

I am here to announce that I have no more excuses to not blog. As of Saturday, I have the internet at home! I know … welcome to the twenty-first century, right?

Along with the internet, we got cable. And I must confess … I think I’m becoming addicted to Chopped. Scratch that, I am addicted … because I can’t pull myself away from it even though it’s recorded and I can come back to it at any moment!


A couple weeks ago, I had my first flat on the road. And I’m talking about my bike, of course. This wasn’t my first ever flat though. That occurred before Allie and I actually left for a ride several months ago. But back to this story… I was coming off a great downhill (note: I’ve had a fear of having a flat as I’m speeding downhill), and all of a sudden… PoP! I didn’t know I had a flat, not gonna lie. I thought something was terribly wrong and theĀ  loud noise totally freaked me out! So we pulled over and see something sticking in my tire. Something little, so we thought. Uh huh. I’m proud to announce that Allie said she’d never had something so big in her tire. So you understand how big it was, I put it next to a quarter. Feast your eyes on my massive, sharp, barbed wire souvenir! And to make a long story short: I finally got a new tire, I got another flat (we won’t discuss that one), andĀ  now I am finally able to get back on the road! I hope!
