Let's See How Far I Get With This One

After Sid's graduation last night we stopped at Target to find me a bicycle. I know I don't have a uniform I have to fit in to anymore, but I still need to improve my overall health. Soo, I picked up a bike. You could say it's for my birthday but it's really not. It's a 15-speed mountain bike; the cheapest, sorry, most inexspensive bike they had. I'm looking forward to riding it. What I'm not looking forward to is riding in this nasty hot Florida weather. It's humid and the sun burns. Wish me luck. In high school I used to ride almost every day after school. In college I still rode a bit. I remember one time I rode 45 mins to a friend's house. Let me just say, he had to drive me back home. Now I'm going to make another go at it. We looked at a couple of bicycle trailers but they cost twice as much as the bike. I wanted to be able to stick Sidney in the trailer and take him riding with me. We have to save up for that one.

Speaking of my birthday. What do I want? Hmm? The big day is this Wed, May 25. I'll finally be over the hill: 31 years old. I'm happy with my life. I have life and health, an amazing husband, an angel for a son, a decent job with terrific benefits, and a TiVo. What more could I ask for? I mean, really? (Besides financial independence, more kids, a bigger house, a motorcycle, a BMW, my own company, and a wireless adapter for my laptop, what else could I possibly need?) I forgot. I need an iPod and some new sunglasses.

Ooh, this Friday is the start of the BMW Ultimate Driving Experience. This year the feature is the new 3 Series. It will be fun. I'm taking the afternoon off. (SP, shh).

This week I'll be back to the grind at work. Not. Looking. Forward to it. That's exactly why I'll need Friday afternoon off. What a way to start the long weekend. (The countdown to the weekend trip has officially begun. 5 days and counting.)

@The Princess - SP finished reading your book this weekend. I just started. I really want to finish reading "Emma" first.

Hmmm, BMD Ultimate Driving, huh? Yeah, I knew you were taking off as soon as you told me it was coming up. I'm suprised that BG isn't going with you.

Have you used that bike yet?

I know all about that nasty Florida heat because I went to football camp every summer as a kid. Cool

To satisfy those "desires of the heart," I'll do the following for you, 'cause ya know, I'm sweet like that *wink*: I'll give you my mom's winning lottery ticket (seeing that we don't play in my house); I'm sure it's one of those tickets I see laying around her car and inside her previously used purses *LOL*. I'll lone you a couple of my kids for the summer (Sid said he'd love some playmates 'round his age.). As for the house, you'll need another good winning lottery ticket to be able to afford a home at the price of Florida's market *LOL*; I guess we'll really be like a Southern California before too long (we already got the matching Disney's, Orange county, Universal Studios, MGM, beaches, sun, wealth, stars, mansions, hurricanes/earthquakes, etc.).

I'm still gonna have to work on your company idea...and the wireless adapter thingy...I'll send it in the suitcase when you take the kids back with you this weekend. Ha ha.

You are not over the hill till you get my age, 41. Enjoy the bike, I need to upgrade mine, too.

Happy birthday! Forget the mountain bike though and get yourself a REAL bike (motorcycle). You've inspired me - maybe I'll ditch the gym gear tonight and throw on my motorcycle gear instead.

Singing "Happy birthday to you -- Happy birthday to you -- happy birthday to Shelly, happy birthday tooooooooooo, yoooooooou." Just close your eyes and imagine this being sung in the voice of Whitney Houston.

Have a blessed day and give that little Sidney a kiss for me.
