I know it seems like I am full of bad news lately. I guess I am. But I have some good news today too, so I’m not ALL Negative Nancy.
So what should it be? Good new or bad news first? Lets end on a good note. Bad news first…I don’t want to ruin your day though so if you prefer not to hear the bad news just skip down to the photo. here is your chance to self-preserve your positive outlook on life. Don’t let me bring you down…go ahead. I will never know.
BAD NEWS: I accidentally dried my fav Nike Capri tights. The stench is forever dried into them. GAG-o-licious! Here is how it went down. I did laundry yesterday and this morning I threw the last load of darks into the drier. I went about my morning as usual. THEN, as I was driving LB to school it hit me! My tights were in that load! NO!!!!!!!! I almost ran off the road! Ok, exaggeration but what ev…I came home and riffled through the still-running drier. It didn’t take long to find them, all I had to do was sniff them out. SICKENING! Once upon a time I used to purchase and use Winn detergent for athletic clothes. But alas gas prices are now astronomical and things get cut. Winn included. Maybe I should invest in a new bottle. But really, girls are supposed to be sugar and spice and EVERYTHING nice. Not stinky, sweaty workout clothes. We have all experienced this: You’re at a race and you’re squished in at the start line and someone around you smells like they already ran 20 miles. In the heat of the day. I am that person. Shame, oh the shame….
GOOD NEWS: For the good news, to bring you up after I knocked you down…Nelly is home from the Bike Hospital! She is amazing! She is all better!! She is ready to hit the road again! Although I got a tiny knot in my stomach when I held her steady with my hands, bringing her into my garage. Riding my Trek was ok, different. I didn’t crash on my Trek. But looking at Nelly my stomach got all tight and I felt nervous. The Aero bars…those bars, oh so far from the breaks, made me feel nervous. I will get back on and ride though, I have to. I’m just glad she is home and I am a step closer to putting that whole ordeal behind me. Only a few fading bruises and a diminishing pain in my bootie remain. I am on the up and up!
Welcome home Nelly CIRN!
I think we have way too many bikes! Can you see how many bikes are in our garage? The first person to leave the correct number in a comment will get an extra entry into my Allied Steele Giveaway coming later this week!
Off to spin then swim then work….Se la vi!
