Hello friends!  How are you all doing?  Did you have a great weekend?  Mine was pretty good.   There was a “mountain” bike race in my town that I volunteered at.  I use the term “mountain” loosely because I’m no where near mountains so it’s more like riding your bike on trails in the woods. Guess I gotta take what I can, right?

Anyways, the reason I’m discussing this is because the race was held around the lake with an RV park that I was thinking of parking at.  You can read all about that parking spot here.

Game time!

Hello, hello!  Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  Hope it was fantastic.  It was the start of college football. Did you watch any games?  Go to any games?

Me, no.  I didn’t go to any games, however, the first football game at the University where I work happened to be last Thursday night.  The game also happened to be broadcast on TV so there were warnings the week leading up to game day that certain parking lots would be closed and the other lots would need to be vacated by 2:00 or 2:30.  So that pretty much means that parking on game day – during the work week – would be even more of a headache than it already is.  so what’s a girl to do when she has to work but not quite sure where to park….ride her bike!

location update

Hello, hello!  Happy hump day!  Hope you all doing well.  This is a short post it’s been a busy week but I wanted to update that the new location is great!  I teach a spinning class on campus at 6:00 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays so I would usually get up at 4:50 AM to pack breakfast & lunch and clothes (I pack the night before but some things still need to wait till the morning to pack) and leave at 5:20 AM to drive into campus to teach at 6:00.  Well, here is the best news!  Yesterday, I woke at 5:00 AM and left at 5:30.  I arrived at the gym in 7 minutes….what?  7 minute commute!  This means I had time to go home after teaching spin class to shower and get ready for the day.  If this becomes my new schedule I think I could sleep in till 5:15 since I wouldn’t need the time to get my stuff together for the day.  I also get a nice little break to watch the news and eat breakfast at home before starting my day.  Quality of life just improved.  =)

Hope you all have a great wednesday!

Parking yet again…

Happy hump day!  Woohoo!  Did you all have a great Valentines day?  Now, go out and buy all the discounted leftover chocolates. Actually, don’t do that as I want some left over for me! =)

So I posted in a private group of crossfit friends about wanting a new parking spot and someone had a lead!  I have a potential parking spot just outside of city limits.  This is not a done deal as this contact is verifying if they have a sewer/electric/water/etc for me but this gives me hope.  Keep your fingers cross my friends!  This is quite exciting for me!

I’m pretty busy these next few weekends – and have to find someone to haul my house – even if it’s just 5 miles down the road so I probably won’t be doing anything for a few weeks anyways.  Don’t worry, I’ll keep you all updated on the progress of “The Great Parking Debate”.  =)
