Fast Forward

 This week has flown by.  Memorial Day I spend with the kid.  I always know he had a great time because he won't stop talking from the time we are done with whatever activity, until bed time!   This was one of those times!  I think I'm going to name the boat "Zippy".  It is a little 12 foot fiberglass motor boat, but with the 20hp motor on it, that thing "zips" along.  We were the smallest craft on the lake too! 
 We started saving for new appliances last summer.  Just setting aside a little every paycheck.   I'm not sure why it took us so long to learn to save and plan ahead, maybe it is due to the fact that the wife and I both have steady income and we have some extra to save (so we can spend?)  It feels good to exercise the discipline though, and  save up $1000 to buy some nice appliances.  And the wife loves them!

Next on the list.... mini van. 
 Mid-Evil days are the topic in Social Studies, they were having a field day and we were invited to chaperone.  I dressed up as a castle. 

I'm averaging 1 ride per week now that my race season is over.  It feels good to get out, but I can't wait to get out more.  In a couple of weeks, I'll be riding every day, thanks to the Trips For Kids WNC ride program!  Can't wait to get some kids in the woods. 

 To finish off the week, we said goodbye to our pup, "Texas".  He was 15 years old and lived a full life.  He taught us how to be good dog people!  I definitely learned some things about myself and how I needed to improve, from working with him!  Letting go was hard, but I know that he is better off, and I got some good sleep.  He typically woke up to go outside a couple times each night.  I have not slept through the night in a very long time.   Ollie is the alpha dog now.  I'm looking forward to seeing him get more spunky without the grumpy ol' Tex barking at him every time he makes a move!
