Where was I again?

I dunno. I suck at web-logging in my old age.

Let’s see…I got back from Quebec on Friday morning (like 1:00, so Thursday night, whatever). I was pretty much in a daze for a couple days. I don’t know why, I was just kinda out of it. It always takes me some time to get back in the groove after being on the road. I think we all know my children are loved, BUT it’s an adjustment when you get used to doing things alone. With four girls, there is no alone. And that’s good. I just have to find my rhythm again. So anyway, it took me a couple days.

Plus jet lag, plus a cold, plus 95 degree temps, a week off the bike…you can imagine how those first couple rides back went.

On that note, really hoping to do a bike race in the near future. It may not be pretty.

I thought this week would be really chill (note to self: never use the expression “chill” again, unless referring to the temperature), but life as a rep is always changing. I got a new program to push and I found myself working the streets pretty hard.

I did manage a couple decent rides.

And I’ve been able to take Haley to swim practice a few times. I take my laptop and work and watch at the same time. So fun to see her improving. Let’s face it, there was only one way to go! She’s making serious strides though, which is great to see. I am excited to go to her swim meet this weekend. Although, I am a little concerned that they say the meet may last 6 hours. She can just barely swim a whole lap, so I don’t know what’s going to go on for the remainder of the time, but…oh, I guess there’s other peoples’ kids too.

Anyway, looks like I managed a post. Stay tuned, I’ll probably do it again. Eventually.


Good week

We had a super nice last week. Started out in the low 50’s and topped out in the low 70’s. Felt sooo good. I have an order deadline TODAY, so it was a bit hectic, but I found time to get out and ride a couple hours everyday, save yesterday. Yeah, I definitely needed a “day of rest”.

None of the rides were terribly taxing, but going from typically only a couple rides a week, I could definitely feel the cumulative fatigue by the end of the week. Could have been the antibiotics too, but I was off them at the end of the week, so I don’t think so.

Last night, our little Rory barely slept. I’m sure Kelly will be a zombie today as she was up with her for a long time. Around 4:30, Rory finally fell asleep, but then I started thinking of all the stuff I have to do and couldn’t sleep, so an hour or so later, I got up and entered a couple orders and now, here I am.

I was definitely a bit off the back on blogging, so I guess it worked out. Might trade a couple hours of sleep for this post in retrospect.

Nothing too crazy for St. Paddy’s yesterday. Airport run to pick up Kelly’s bro and an extended family dinner. Of course, we churched it up firsties.

Oh, on that note, I am failing miserably at my goal of reading the Book of Mormon in March. I WILL get it done before our sealing, but this month is looking out of reach.

I am leaving for Colorado again tomorrow, so expect more updates. Road warrior!!
