It's Flashback Friday!!!

Week has been pretty dead. Jess was busy most of the week and well I really wasn’t. Monday we had our last basketball game of the year and we won! We finished 4-6 on the season, an improvement from 1-9 last year. Before that I went to the Chainsmoker meeting which is a pretty solid group of people. Tuesday was very unexciting and I really didn’t do much and it was a bad day for one of my co-workers so I just kind of was stoic all day. Wednesday was a day of rain. Jess was gone that night but at least they finally they had a new episode of Friday Night Lights which was outstanding. The writers are adding drama to the script to play on the fact that the show is about 50:50 on being cancelled. Oh yeah, I got my haircut for the first time this year on Wednesday as well! Thursday was just a bad day as well so after taking the dogs to the park for an hour and a half I just kind of holed up and worked around the house. Today is better though since it is Flashback Friday and only two weeks until the first trip to Miller Park for the season. The same old is on tap for this weekend, not sure about tonight, tomorrow will have basketball some bike riding and dodgeball. Sunday will be chill day with the only thing I know for sure of is the Boxer Bash at the bark park. Of course the forecast is for rain.

Man my blog just isn’t very good any more. I haven’t raced bikes in a while. A couple of my friends who are always good for some stories are moving away. I’ve slowed down on the junk food eating so no food posts. My job has been boring so no real good work posts. The carpet is pretty much shredded and Chili is now ruining the same stuff twice. Guh! Hopefully I can tune this thing up for the spring and get it back on track, before it fades away.

Weekend Update with Burrito Eater…

So another weekend has passed and oh so quickly. Friday I got to leave work early, just in time to get to the in-laws for the Badger game. And they had a nice spread of food. The moment of joy was quickly replaced by moments of disgust when the game started. Finally with the first have closing it looked like the Badgers might have a chance and finally they took the game and all was well in the world. We then went out to the Gritty for supper but it was too packed so we ended up at the Hubbard Ave Diner. Good eats. Went home and watched more basketball. Saturday I awoke early to play basketball. It was a good time. After some grocery shopping Jess went to baby sit the kids of a friend of ours. I decided I should ride my bike over there so I did. The rest of the afternoon was a balance of babysitting (which meant playing Sonic and watching Cars) and watching basketball. Jess wasn’t feeling great so we didn’t do anything that evening. Sunday we got up to have breakfast with Jess’ family (her sister Stacy was in town for the weekend too.) Funny, we ran into Jerry and family at the Hubbard. I ate a very light breakfast because for the second day in a row I rode my bike. I am awesome. We did the Chainslacker ride and it was a good time. Got home and changed to once again travel to the in-laws for some Badger action. The game started the same and the middle was the same, it just got real rough fast and late. Guh! Had to go to the dog park after that and then pick up dog poop in the yard and then spent the rest of the night just being tired.

Jess fixed our water line for the ice maker on Sunday so all is good there. My life has been pretty uneventful lately hence the boring-ass blog of late. Basically my life is like this: Play basketball in the am, work, surf ebay at lunch, work, take the dogs to the park, cook dinner (yes I said cook, I don’t just warm up food anymore) and then watch TV or work on the house. Excitement. You can subtract the work out of the weekend and add in various activities like cycling, movies, hanging with friends, dodgeball and running errands. I think that is what March in Wisconsin is all about.
