Issues with sleep

I have an issue with sleep and may be taking a sleep test to help figure out my issues are. I have been working on improving my sleep ever since I realized I actually had an issue. I have never had a problem falling to sleep, but staying asleep long enough to feel refreshed, not […]

Best thing about the dog park isn’t always the dogs

Beag has gotten to the point now that I don’t think she cares about going or not. She wants exercise and she wants attention and all that, but if she doesn’t come up on a very few dogs she plays with, all she does is sit near me and will occasionally give a pup or […]

Am I nuts?

The saga of my mountain bike continued this week. I am still lucky enough to not have to buy new wheel(s), as I said in an earlier post but but I am still going to end up spending close to that aforementioned $600. The repair of the wheel is going to be around $250. A […]

Coyote?, round 4

Our friend, what I believed to be a coyote, showed up again this morning. This time I tried to get a better look. While I think it still could be a coyote I am think now that it might be a red fox. It is smaller than most coyotes I’ve seen which is why I […]

The wheel shopping adventure that wasn’t

When I talked to the guy at Incycle about my rear wheel on Saturday afternoon he basically said I’d have to replace my wheel and since it was a set, I decided I would buy both and keep it matched. Damn this was going to be expensive. Once I decided what I was going to […]

Highland Game border collie trial adventure

After arriving at the park at about 8:30AM I had no trouble getting in, parking or finding the area for the trial. Everything was close together and easily accessible. I was about an hour early and did what I could and tried to figure out what was expected of me. I fastened Beag nearby and […]

The Weekend that was

I think I am mostly making this particular post just to get some of ALL the stuff that’s been going on since early Saturday morning straight in my head. So hang on for a bit of a ride. At least as far as my life goes anyway. On Saturday I agreed to do a mountain […]

Bike commuting days 3, 4, and 5a

After taking a week off to heal my back I felt well enough to try riding in again on Tuesday. I made it in 38+ minutes and home in about an hour. I even felt pretty good when I got there. No where as wiped out as the first couple of tries. On Wednesday I […]

Too much, too soon?

I woke up Sunday with a real pain in the ass. Well, not my ass actually but my lower back. I was in pain all day Sunday and Monday I worked from home with a heatpad on my back most of the day. I did venture to the dog park for awhile before Beag drove […]
