You did what?

Saturday afternoon my husband and I found ourselves sans kids. We were sitting in the living room watching the Hawaiian Ironman and something in me wanted to go for a bike ride. Only problem is I don't have a bike. Jeff thought it would be okay if I rode Paige's bike and he would run. Yah right. First he had to add air to the back tire-completely flat when I sat on it! Then the seat kept moving around. Plus add the fact that it is too small and I couldn't pedal it very well, oh and then the torrential downpour about a mile into this great adventure.

Once back home and out of completely soaked clothes, I did realize how much I missed riding a bike. Growing up, we all rode bikes until we turned driving age. Even after getting our licenses, a lot of still occasionally rode our bikes. I'm seriously considering getting one.

This weekend our nephew is getting married. My husband also graciously offered our house to out of town family. Not that I mind, it's just that the attic is a complete and utter disaster. I would have like a little notice so I could schedule things a little different this week, but what are you gonna do? I am baking some cookies and have to run to the outlets in hopes of finding something for me and Paige to wear. So in addition to working full time and all, this should be a nice week!

I did get my office organized. This would have been a great before and after moment- if I only had a camera. I am going to swipe the office camera so I can get a few things on to ebay. My son came into the office and asked what happened in here? When I told I cleaned it he said - cool!

It's not all the way done, but it is a ton better! The greatest part of the whole clean up was going through the boxes of cards I have saved. I cleaned out a lot of them to send to St Jude's, but there are so many precious cards from the kids and my family. I know I am the only one that appreciates them, but I don't care.

Tonight after work, Paige had cheer practice and Jeff and I took Jeffrey Michael to the pool. The water was freezing, but it was still in the 80's. It was nice to relax for an hour till we had to get Paige and now I'm ready to hit the hay.

Riding bike is so fun...and I'm sure riding through the rain made you seem even more like a kid! I would love to get a bike but we have no place to store it right now, so it's been moved to the ever growing list of things to get once we buy a home...

HI Rochelle. Thank you for the input on my blog. I am a full time college student and a SAHM to my 3 children and I am really struggling to find a balance.

As far as riding a bike..I would love to get a bike for me and my husband and be able to go out with the kids. I haven't ridden a bike, probably since I was 10! OMG I couldn't even imagine it.
