It's Wednesday and I've done all the chores on my list.

I'm stoked. This means the next 4 days are all mine.

Today I went and picked up my bike, no, not my new one, my old Bianchi that was in the shop. I was excited to get it back. I have not really ridden since October. This afternoon I took it out for a spin and it's totally cool. I am however, out of bike shape and that will have to change quickly.

Other than that, I washed and waxed my car. I'm seriously thinking of getting a new car. I have a 2001 Ford Escape and while I love it to death, it's getting up there. It has almost 100,000 miles on it. As I was waxing it I noticed a whole lot of new nicks in the paint and some small scrapes that I don't know where they came from, hmmm!!! I think it needs new shocks, which I'll probably have done next month, and it's just plain getting old. I'm thinking of the new Ford Edge, I really like those, or possibly even the Ford Fusion. I drove the Fusion last year and it was really nice. And, it has a back seat that is split and folds down so I can get my bike in the trunk - these things are important. I could get it in a nice silver grey that would match my new bike, hehehe. In any case, that won't happen for awhile, probably 6-8 months.

I start a drawing class next month at the adult education school and I went and picked up the supply list. I used to draw really well when I was a kid, I'd like to get back into it. My dad was an awesome artist. He was offered a job by Walt Disney himself back in like 1954 but my folks had 5 kids and it would have required a cross country move.

I'm also taking guitar lessons. I took guitar lessons when I was in high school and did okay just didn't stick with it. It's time to try again. We'll see how it goes. If nothing else I can piss off the drug dealing neighbors :)

Well, I guess that's it for today. I'm watching Oprah and it's really boring. Her guest is weird!! Okay, I'm off....

My son plays guitar--self taught--and now is going to college for a music degree. Good luck on your lessons. I wouldn't have the patience to sit and attempt to figure it out.

Make sure you get a nice heavy duty amp to hook the guitar up to so the neighbors can appreciate your new talent. You KNOW you'll have to practice REAL early before you go into work. Right?

to response to your comment.

You are right. There is so many paths that lead off and only one path that is right... :).....Objective wise, it shoudln't be that hard in making a decision. I mean in black and white. One path is right and every other parth is wrong.

Talking and walking the path is two different matter.

You are having a very busy vacation. New bikes, old bikes, cars, errands. When will you get time to rest? :) Enjoy the time off.
