I'm moving...for now

I'm so frustrated with blogger that I've moved over to WordPress. Come see me there and if anything changes I'll update both spots.

Frustrating update

I have so much to say since it's been so long since I've posted. I'm writing from my iPad again which while great is also super annoying since I dont have a keyboard and can't upload pics or copy and paste. :( That aside... I have a couple of spin rides to post but that will require a little more time. This past weekend was the NYC marathon which my sister once again ran. She rocked it and did it in 3:29, which is about an 8 minute mike the whole time. Nuts! It was a fun weekend with beautiful weather. Food wise I'm doing well. I've been watching my diet for a bit over a month and have lost just under 5 pounds which is awesome. I feel great! Health wise some of my earlier issues have come to a head making November a tad more eventful than I would have liked. I'm have my deviated septum fixed on nov 22 which has always been the plan. However, I'm now having another surgery on nov 18. That one is for the previous issues. It is surgery but it's quick and should have a relatively easy recovery. Add this to the fact that I'm seeing trans Siberian orchestra this weekend and it translates to me not teaching my Saturday class again until December. I'm not happy about it but I have no choice. So that is an uber cliff notes version of what is going on with me. I will be back soon...promise.

I have a virus

No, I'm not sick, but my work computer is. My work computer is a laptop so it's what I use about 90% of the time. It has a virus that has totally stumped my IT folks. The weirdest thing is, it wont let me access blogger at all. I've drafted up posts but can not get online to publish them. So here I am apologizing from my iPad. I will try to use my desktop in the meantime so I can blog. I'm sure my lack of posts has left a huge void in your lives. :)

I really am here!

Wow, it's pretty much been a week since a post.  But I'm back.  I will apologize in advance for the fact that this post will probably be pretty random.

I'm back on the east coast and couldn't be happier.  Business travel (to this specific location) just doesn't do it for me.  Some highlights...
  • Only in this town does a dinner at Ruby Tuesday's get me so excited!  In a town that normally puts french fries on their salads, a menu that offers mashed cauliflower and spaghetti squash is off the hook!
  • One night I went for sushi with a coworker.  Fine.  They give you the full sushi menu where you mark off what you want.  Lots of offerings, nice.  They also give you a menu, OK.  I open the menu and the first two items I see are gnocchi and chicken parmesan.  WTF??  Yes, the menu was pretty much all Italian.  Thankfully the sushi was good, but I was a bit scared.
  • On my last night I drove back towards the airport and stayed there.  Hello civilization!  There were tons of restaurants, granted most were chains, but it was still a vast improvement.  I went to Smokey Bones for my first time.  LOVED it.  Is it really good or had I just spent too much time in rural-ville?
  • My flight yesterday was at 6a so I had to set my alarm for 4:30a.  Ugly, but do-able.  However, around 2:30a I started hearing weird noises at odd intervals.  Then my phone went off. I got up to check it and the noises started again, coupled with some moaning.  Yup, you guessed it.  Gross!  So on went the TV and out the door went my hope of a good nights sleep.
The early flight was because I had an appointment for a physical, which as you may know is booked way in advance.  I went for my blood work last week and when she took my blood, my right arm ran out of the blood towards the end and my hand started tingling.  I've had blood taken a billion times so this concerned me.

At my physical I mentioned this to the doc and was relieved to hear her say that it was due to the person taking the blood from me and her technique, not me.  Phew.  Overall the physical was good, I believe she said "perfect".  There's nothing like a great physical to let you know that everything is OK.  I wasn't expecting anything, but you just never know.

I do think it's important to go just to get everything checked out every year or so. I'm trying to impart this believe on Don Juan, especially since he has some risk factors in his family history.  Why do men not get it?

And now spinning...
I taught last night which was just what I needed after days away.  Decent turn out, still no energy but at least the bodies were there.  Mid-class someone starts pedalling backwards.  UGH.  I've pretty much had it with the fact that this happens so I called him out...on the mic.  I felt bad and said that I just didn't want him to get hurt.  I then followed up with that I know one instructor has you do this, but it is WRONG WRONG WRONG.  I really need to talk to management about this.  Hopefully the guy I called out doesn't hate me, but if he does, at least he won't hate me and be injured. :)

Halloween ride tomorrow, need to do some sprucing up tonight on it and will then post it.  I'm dressing up as another instructor, who no one likes.  He's one of those guys who dresses like he's about to ride the Tour de France and then doesn't even sit on the bike.  He's odd.  Hopefully I don't run in to him but if I do, I'm just a "cyclist".  Mean or no?  DJ thinks it's mean, I think it will be funny, and I will not name names.

OK, thanks for reading my ramblings.  Sorry I don't have any fun photos to show you.  I'll work on that.

Have a fabulous Friday and a fun weekend.  Be safe with all the Halloween festivities!!

I'm not missing

Sorry I've been bad with posting, somehow the days have gotten away from me.

I'm currently on the road for work but will try to get a post up in the next day or so.  Until then...

Smile for today

Each year I love to get the Halloween forwards with dogs in costumes.  I have yet to receive that this year so I found some fun pictures on the internet and figured I'd take a moment to share them.

Sometimes distractions are such a wonderful thing.

OK, that's enough.  I could seriously do this all day.  Have a good smile!!
