Well, my batchelor weekend is over. It was pretty good although I didn't accomplish nearly as much as I wanted. Friday night I rented some movies and sat on the couch eating chips and dip (something I haven't done in about 9 months.) I ended up not going to bed until around 4:00 AM just because I could. After about 6 hours of sleep I dragged myself out of bed and went to the DMV to get new plates for the motorcycle. WV redesigned motorcycle plates and they have to be displayed by July 1st.

When I got home from the DMV I decided to go ahead and mow the lawn with the thought that I might go see Live Free or Die Hard later that afternoon. It was hotter out than I originally thought and as I was wearing a tank top I ended up burning my shoulders. When I was done with the lawn I came in to lay down a relax for a bit. Yeah, right. I woke up 4 hours later.

Since I'm a cheap bastard, I decided against a night-time movie. I briefly toyed with the idea of going down to The Club but frugality made me balk at the $40 entrance fee. So, I went out for some dinner, rented some more movies and then sat on my ass with some totally decadent ice cream.

Yeah, yeah, I know. I went totally off the reservation with my eating this weekend. But I figured A) I deserved a treat and B)... um, there is no "B". So there.

Sunday morning I cooked some food for my lunches this week. [livejournal.com profile] keltique came over in the afternoon and we went for a long ride exploring the backroads of WV. Well, not all of WV. We actually were never more than 10 miles from the house. That's just one of the reasons I love living here, there are so many nice roads to ride within minutes of our Stepford suburban development.

I went to bed at a more reaonable hour Sunday night. I've blown off going to the gym for the last two mornings though. It's all a part of my mini-vacation. Thursday I'll get back to pumping.


Weights, ya pervs.

Traffic has been really light this week. I'm still in the midst of testing for our upgrade from Lotus 6 to Lotus 7. So far everything's working perfectly in the test environment. I don't know when we'll actually start upgrading production but we're doing everything we can to make sure it goes smoothly.

[livejournal.com profile] cellymcfae has expressed in interest in going to Berkeley Springs so tomorrow we're going to take the motorcycle out there. We don't have any other plans so we'll just walk around the town and then take a leisurely ride back. We'll watch fireworks from the hill in back of our house (on Saturday night I could see four different fireworks shows!) and then get to bed as early as possible.

The excitement is overwhelming, isn't it?

ED. - I think LJ farted. I could see that some people commented but I couldn't see the comments and I didn't get any emails. So I deleted the original and reposted below.

Monday evening, [livejournal.com profile] cellymcfae and I went for a walk around the block. When we used to try doing this, oh about a year ago, she had to walk slower than normal so I could keep up. She's a fast-walker. Not to be confused with a close-talker. But this time, I could walk just as fast as she does and I didn't feel as though I was courting a coronary episode. So go me.

Last night, [livejournal.com profile] cellymcfae went to the public library to get some books. Since it was still relatively warm out, I decided to pull out the bike and detail the wheels. You see, my bike has spoked wheels which is a pain in the ass to clean. Usually I just spray them off with some S100 cleaner and go. This time though I laid down on the driveway with a toothbrush and scrubbed each and every spoke until it shined. Then I cleaned in and around the engine. I finished by spraying down the whole bike, drying it off, and waxing the tank and fenders. She's now primped, pretty and ready for church. Or as some people like to say, "parade ready".

Tomorrow will start the official riding season for me. I'm sure because of the weather today that it will be pretty chilly at 5:00 AM but the afternoon ride home should be spectacular.

I really need to get some ghost brackets so I can get the bags off easier. I also need to call K├╝ryakyn and see about getting my foot peg fixed. Those are the only really pressing things. More chrome and gadgets are going to have to wait until probably the Fall. I'm really focusing on getting our credit cards and loans paid off.

Speaking of money that I don't have to spend, I have got to go get some new pants. I've got a couple pairs I found when I cleaned out our craft room closet that fit me again. But all my newer pants, some nice linen ones too, are about 6 inches too big in the waist now. I've got droopy but down to almost my knees. It's not pretty. My shirt situation is fine though, oversized shirts don't look nearly as bad and baggy pants.

Saturday morning I'm going to take my club vest over to a new leather place (my usualy seamstress retired and closed her shop) in Martinsburg to get some patches sewn on. I'm hoping I can wait for it because I have a club meeting that night. Oh, did I mention that I'm the new Secretary for my riding club? Don't get all congratulatory on me though, it's a voluntary position. I've been in this club for three years so I figured it was time to give something back.

On Sunday we're planning on going to see 300 after [livejournal.com profile] cellymcfae gets out of church. Some time during this weekend I also need to do some work out in the gardens because things are starting to pop up. I've been lazy about that the last couple of years and the grass is seriously trying to take over our flower beds. I also want to go across the street to the construction site and steal some big rocks before they haul them off. I'm hoping that my increased energy this year will mean I can finally do something about the big ideas in my head regarding our landscape. We want to plant some trees, build a large raised vegetable garden bed, and create an park-like area.

Weightloss a good enough reason to buy new gardening and power tools, isn't it??
