30 April, 2010


Well, we went and spent our free money at Sports Authority, and only ended up spending $18 of our own money. That was pretty sweet! We bought:

  • a handlebar bag for me
  • 2 sweet water bottles (no BPA and dishwasher safe)
  • a bike lock with a cable long enough to secure both bikes
  • a bottle holder for Scott
  • a portable tire pump
  • ceiling hooks to hang the bikes (we think we're going to mount them under the neighbor's stairs where they will be easier to get down)
  • a padded seat for Scott (the one his bike came with was sort of...utilitarian)

I think that's it. Of course, Scott's got an OT shift tonight, and I have one next week. By the time we're both off, it'll be 95 degrees out! Even if that's the case, we'll just have to get up and go early in the morning when it's "only" 80.

And thus concludes this month's NaBloPoMo entries. I'm going to try to keep going next month, because writing every day is therapeutic in its own weird way. And I know I've never gone 2 months in a row before...

Wish me luck!

I'd like to point out that you did this (May NaBloPoMo)to yourself with no peer pressure at all on my part!

I don't think I'll be doing next month since I'll be out of town and without Internet access on the 2nd and 3rd and I'm too stressed right now to make post-dated cheaty pants posts. BUT I will probably be pretty diligent about posting after that. Thanks for pushing me this month! We did it!!! WOOT!

Congrats on the bike/bike accessories purchases! I know the two of you are going to have a great time and I look forward to all the bike related adventure filled posts.

... and don't think that I'm not disappointed by the lack of a bell.

ooh! out of town? That sounds thrilling. (can you tell how ready I am for vacation???)

as for the bell, did you see my tweet? they didn't have any!

wickedmess said...

No, not thrilling. Not even close to vacation. The polar opposite of relaxing.

:: shudders ::

I did see that your Tweet. I have been shopping for bike bells (and looking for wave files and YouTube videos of bike bells) ever since.

I expect that each time you both ring them you will think of me. Weeee!
