Hoping to as little as possible this week. I have 5 books and tons of time. Sand will be between my toes and sun in my receding hair. But I will be happy.

Riders in the Storm

Rain, Wind. Hurricane Irene is coming by and it has delayed things for me. Happy that I did get out for a bike ride this morning.
Keeping myself busy by watching a DVD.

So here I wait. I have not spoken or heard from my wife since Monday but that is not all bad. She has been on safari in Kruger national park in South Africa where there is a lack of communications.
I hope she is on the flight that left earlier today but I am not sure. I just have faith that she is and also there has been no messages on the phone or anything else.

So here I wait.

Yes, physical Therapy for my shoulder. It feels like there is something in there.
Makes life difficult but what am I complaining about. It is not like I am really sick or something.
Praying for rain again.

Rained Out

Pouring out and really warm. Funeral that was all outside including the lowering of the coffin and the dirt being put on. Soaked but happy I was there.

Preached Out

I made it through today and now have to plan a funeral for tomorrow.
Lord Have mercy,

So I go out for a normal 40 mile ride. I am climbing the hill by my house to get home when I hit a pothole, a wheel-sucking pothole that took me out. My shoulder took the brunt of the fall and I broke helmet #6(Over 22 years). I was on the hook for training at 11 and delivering food for 65 homeless people but was able to get the times moved for both of these so I could go to the ER. I showered when I got home and cleaned myself up, best as I could. I knew things were getting bad when I could no longer lift my arm up. I get there and the docs found every sore spot on me. I did not realize that my hip was really bruised too. Xrays were negative as for breaks but getting the Xrays was a very painful experience. They scrubbed my wounds gave me a tetanus shot, a prescription for serious pain killers and sent me home with the warning it is going to hurt worse tomorrow. So far, no pain killers but I am sore and uncomfortable.
Weather is supposed to be cool the next 2 days and I can't ride.


Off to church.....

What has life to offer?

Sitting here with a bowl of cherry pits wondering who ate the cherries? An I don't even like cherry pie.
My thought is that I got a bad deal, a real bummer. But it does happen.

feeling in prayer

I find myself praying and hoping to understand so much, yet I cannot discuss them with others.
Wondering why God listens when I need to be talking to others too.

Missing so much right now.

I am going to change companies. I am tired of all the test the doctors have had me complete. Let us see: A stress test, a CT with contrast of the heart, a MRI of the chest and body, an ultrasound of the kidneys and now I have to have a 3D ultrasound of my kidneys with contrast. Something to figure out why my blood pressure is so high and my pulse rate does not increase with activity. My max heart rate is down 30% which is really strange for me because of all the cycling I have been doing. I have been wearing a heart rate monitor while taking spin class and find it hard to see me limited to 150 BPS. Kind of strange to have constant chest pain but cysts in kidneys can cause this and they did find 4. Live is indeed changing for me.

Decision Day

Do I stay working part time or do I go to the place where I have a full-time offer? I make it this morning.
