Missing my bikes and all of you

Life has been so crazy but in a good way. I have been offered an opportunity to make one of my life-long ambitions come true. I'm not quite ready to share it all yet. I might jinx myself.

I will tell you that it's exciting, nerve wracking and flattering- all at the same time. The only caveat so far is that I have absolutely no time to ride.

The weather has been so hot and humid (as I write this, I am sticking to my chair). I haven't even wanted to ride to work. I would have to leave early to allow time for the "PTA" bath and I just don't have the extra minutes right now.

I am missing my bikes and all of my fellow bloggers. I miss reading about all of you and your adventures. I wonder if anyone has a new bike, had a crash, or decided to give up their car.

Things will settle down soon and I will restore some balance to our household. At this moment, I have about two weeks of dirty laundry, a garden full of weeds, and a list of other projects that need to be done before autumn.

Just wanted you to know that I'm still here and thinking of all of you.

Thanks for the update! So curious to hear what's been happening. Either way, best of luck and hoping you will return in full-swing soon!

Glad to hear you're still pedaling around...I'll keep posted on your big news! we're planning a bike ride on a local trail and a picnic Wednesday. I wish I could report Greg was off training wheels, but no dice yet.

Wow-- fulfilling a life-long ambition. Very cool. Hope it happens for you.

Thanks for the comments. I will share soon. Not anything as exciting as going on American Idol or something but just something I've always wanted to do (or be).

I actually got out on the bike a little today. It was a great escape from my complicated life.
Gave me time to clear my head.

Well, I'm going to surf onto your blogs and see what you've been up to.
