Not quite ready to Ride


Just when I think the weather will cooperate, we get snow. So I haven't gotten to ride to work yet. I haven't gotten my new tires on my commuter bike yet but I would have to ride my winter bike anyway because there is still ice everywhere in the mornings.


My son-on-law is in the Air Force and they are stationed in Mississippi until he finishes up with his schooling, then they will be stationed in HAWAII!!! Needless to say, I'm stoked! I have never been to Hawaii but I plan on going there at least 2x per year after they get settled in about 8 months. WooHoo!


Work bites, that is what has been taking up a lot of my free time. I didn't even get to go to the cabin over spring break because of work. GRRR. The economy is making more people eligible for welfare, employees are quitting, there is a hiring freeze so we are in a really tight spot. The heads are thinking of manditory overtime but I keep telling them it will backfire. No one is accepting the voluntary overtime that is being offered because they are burned out. Forcing people to give up their down time and family time is NOT going to help. Ut will make morale fall even lower and the accuracty rate will continue to decline because it all becames harder when one is tire, unhappy and burned out. Personally, I will not be doing manditory overtime because my family and sanity is more important than this job. They need to do the right thing and open up the positions for hire.


I was going to climb the Butte today but me and the hubby went into Anchorage and scored 2 17ft sea kayaks off Craigslist!!!!!!!! We got a sweet deal!!!!!!


My son and nephew climbed the Butte a couple weeks ago and got some great pictures. It's a small little butte but offers great views!

I have to say it: A small butte with a great view is the best! :^)
2 trips a year to Hawaii? Sign me up. Maybe I need to join the service . . .
So, any new brews on the horizon?

Yeah, Hawaii, here I come!

Looks like Utah snow storms are done wrecking my biking plans, so I'm going to try my first ride next week! Here's hoping I didn't just jinx myself...

Picture looks real nice. Mandatory Overtime? I'll tell you why they do that. Companies, organizations, etc...know that jobs are not a dime a dozen. If they even THINK they will get a little more blood from a rock, they'll flex it knowing you have nowhere to go.

Anyway...Get that snow a-melting!
