I have been sitting at my computer thinking I should write something. I started writing about how stressed I am. I erased it because it sounded so lame. I had nothing good to say and I didn't really want to complain in a post.

I started day dreaming, which I do too much of, and thought I should think of what I am thankful for and try and get out of my little pitty party. When I thought to myself "Self... what are you thankful for this year?" I had a FLOOD of a response.

So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, here it is.

What I am thankful for 2009.

1. There really is only one thing I am thankful for. Everything else is a product of this one thing.

My wife, Amy. She is awesome. I know it. Everyone who knows her knows it. I know I scored big time when I married her. When I look back at my life before her and compare it to now everything is better. She made it better. When I look at my future it only gets better. The thing that is stressing me out right now doesn't really even matter. If it doesn't work out like it is supposed to it wont make a difference. I know she is there for me no matter what and I for her. I know there isn't anything too big or small that we cant beat or accomplish together and that gives me so much confidence. It gives me so much confidence it is empowering and makes me feel like I can do anything. So, when I used to sit around and daydream and daydream of what I wish my life would be like, I would dream about this one. The one I have right now. And that is something I am very thankful for.

Last Weekend and This Week

This weekend I started packing. I looked at all my stuff and wondered where to start. Start with the summer stuff, wont need that for a while. That meant... bike stuff. Do I pack it all up or leave a little something out for a couple weeks and finish later. I hate loose ends. I packed it all up and stuck it into a corner of the garage ready for the truck. Bikes, same thing, off to the corner. Big Wheel gets to stay out for trips to video store, pizza shop, and beverage provider. That means, season over. Kind of sad. It feels like the year is over. Should do the year in review now. There is less than two months until 2010 but with the bike riding it always feels like the year begins and ends with the riding.

Now what? More packing. Yeah. Its too early to think of next year. I cant help it though. I should start preparing now. I have never had a future that seems so unpredictable as it feels now.

Next year...oh man... seems like I am jumping of a cliff and have to learn to fly on the way down. Anyone else feeling that way?

At least it will be exciting.

Happy Place



Lots has been going on but not much at all. I like reading about whats happening with the bros but cant find the time to write myself.
Guys are doing cross but my motivation is flat. I should be getting ready for the big move but my motivation is flat. Really, Amy and I are just enjoying not doing much accept just hanging with each other until thats not our only option. Living the slow life, putting pj's on early, and trying to go to bed before 9. I have been working a solid 4 days a week. I got a buddie that I get breakfast with on Friday mornings. Things are chill. I like that.
Whats coming... remember I said move. Thats coming. Winter is coming. Then what...
There were two missed bdays lately. Ben...33! I saw a pic of his bday present and damn I got to get to his basement.
Oh yeah... one last thing... who does tri's? SS and triathlete goes together like Naval aviation or a really nice trailer park. I just dont get it. But cool for them I guess.
