GASP! Fred didn't post!

I don't know if Fred is on hiatus or what, but he was usually the first to post Thursday evening.  What's going on, Fred?!?!

As for me, it's been over a month since I had an impromptu gymnastic session with a car - cartwheeled over the side of it's hood very ungracefully - and I'm still not all that great.  My neck has limited range of motion, so I'm going to a Physical Therapist soon.  Hopefully I'll get the kinks worked out so I can possibly get back on the road bike soon.  I commuted on it the other day and the more aggressive position, compared to my daily commuter, was not very comfortable.  Plus the fact that I have to contort my whole body just to take a look behind me when attempting lane changes.

In other news: Man, adulting is hard.  We've been in our new house for a couple months and finding the time to care for it is difficult.  I can't even imagine fitting in kids and/or training.  Much respect, people with big families.  We have 2 trees in our front yard - a Tulip tree, as my dad calls it, and a Silver maple leaf tree.  The tulip tree had this amazing blooming session right when the warmer days started.  Those lovely blooms wilted and fell all over the front lawn, driveway, and front sidewalk.  Then the Silver Maple leaf started up.  It has those wonderful helicopter seeds - the ones you can throw in the air and they spin around like the blades of a helicopter.  We have thousands of them all over the yard, on our roof, in our gutters, in the neighbors yard (sorry!), IN OUR BACK YARD.  They are relentless.  So working 3 jobs is not helping the amount of work needed in and around our house.  There's some major things I want to do, but don't have the time and definitely not the money to do so.  But hey, the debt is getting eked away, and my wife will be starting an internship soon in medical billing and coding as part of her program at Metro Community College.  Hopefully that will lead to a good job when she graduates in August.  I'm so happy and proud that she's bettering herself and hopefully getting into a career she can enjoy.

Happy Friday, everyone!
