It has been one of those weeks. The kind where you are all over the place.
So where to start???
I am have survived my first week back in class again. It has even been not bad. OK ~ I’m only taking one class. But it is MATH! My arch-enemy, my greatest foe/fear. It is the first week, I know, but I am taking the good where I can get it this week.
The fact that I am not completely lost already ROCKS! I have been diligently plugging away at my homework every night and doing the section quizzes and all that jazz. Which by the way I do not get credit for, this class is only graded on the exams at the end of each chapter. Luckily I don’t usually have test anxiety like some people do. I mean I am nervous but not to the point where I can’t take a test. When I have to take a test I figure I know it or I don’t and just do the best I can.
Since I am taking an online class and there is some flexibilty in when you take the exams. I only get one chance at each graded exam and it is timed. So I psyched myself up and sat down to take the exam tonight, only to find out I can’t get into it until tomorrow. The fact is I was ready and I will still be ready when it opens up tomorrow. Hope I do well, I am pretty sure I will.
The bad is work has been weird, money is tight and I am in the middle of re-financing the house. So the stress level around here is up. I just want to get through the next few weeks without some major catastrophe in the money department.
So I bought a new bike. Yeah like that makes a lot of damn sense! Call it retail therapy. It isn’t a new bike but a new to me bike. It is fast! Whooo-hoo!
I have been riding a nice little cruiser/hybrid bike for the last two years. It is a good bike and great for running errands and getting around. But I have been pushing myself lately and it just hasn’t been keeping up with me. So I bought a road bike. I got it today and went out and just rode the shit out of it. It is a totally different ride, what a blast but it is a totally different type of ride and now my ass and the webbing on my hands are sore. It is going to take some getting used to. My butt is sore! Harder seat, no suspension, small narrow tires, well I will get used to it, actually I was surprised I didn’t crash. It was fun, but it is very different from the way I have been riding. Think truck verses sports car, I am going to have to be careful!
It feels great to haul butt. I figure
justified it helps with the stress. So now I own two bikes. I will have to keep myself motivated to ride this winter.
Oh and the ugly? Well a few people might just end up ugly if they mess with my schedule again this coming week. *sigh*
So that is my week. Oh I almost forgot, well maybe didn’t exactly forget so much as tried to forget. There is
was a man I liked, he works at one of the local hardware stores. I always got the impression he was attracted to me. Anyways, he was helping me last week and I noticed, yeah I looked, that he didn’t have a ring on. So I got the courage up and asked “Are you single?” He chuckled and said “No, not at the moment.” Well damn! But he at least he didn’t get uncomfortable after that; he continued to help me and chatted. It is a good thing because I have to go in there a lot to get stuff and that would have been awkward if things had gotten strained. Hell maybe he is just really nice to everyone and I just misread him. *sigh* Guess I’ll just go ride my bike…
