Morning Rides

Doctor Matt got me off my ass two weekends ago and we went for rides Saturday and Sunday morning.

Not TOO crazy early - met at 7AM-ish. I got all excited thinking I'd just carry on through the week. Then Amanda reminded me she was off to Ottawa for a week for a conference. As it's generally considered "bad parenting" to leave two very young children at home alone while you go out for a 1-2 hour ride, I went back to staying up late and sleeping in...

Amanda's back and I've been out for a couple rides. Both nights I had trouble sleeping waking up every half hour or so after 2AM. Listening to birds (and last night RAIN!) starting at 3:30 got up just after 4:30 both days as I just couldn't sleep anymore. On tuesday I went riding with Susan, this morning with Matt...

Damn, I'm tired.

But I'm going to keep at it - eventually I should get so tired that I will be able to get to sleep at a decent time and sleep all night, right?

Riding buddies are awesome!

Hauling Donkey

A late Mother's Day present...

Last weekend I got out for a couple of morning rides with Matt. I got all excited thinking I'd just carry on through the week - getting up and going for rides from 5:30 to 7PM before Amanda gets up and ready for work... then she remineded me she'd be in Ottawa all week (I think the kids would be a little freaked out to wake up and find there were no parents in the house at all!)... So, maybe next week.
