Is it the weekend again, already?

23rd March 2007

Crazy how this week has flown by!  Spring Break has worn me out!  It’s so lovely to have Brian around, and though we’re getting a few things done, my normal things are sliding a bit.  I have been cooking, hence all the "What’s Cookin’" posts.  I’m really trying to cut back on the number of times we eat out, and it’s really helpful to be planning meals ahead for the week, so I make sure I have all I’m going to need during my one (or less!) trip to the store each week.  Hey… it almost sounds like I’m getting a little more organized!  Horray!

I just looked back on this post of Easter ideas that I shared last spring.  Maybe I’ll inspire someone to try them, or at the very least, I’m going to make an attempt to do them, since I’ve got 3 whole just over 2 weeks until Easter.  (Right?  Or is it 3?  I honestly can’t keep track of the days.  But however many it is until Easter, it’s ONE LESS until my birthday!)  **Note to organized self…Add the ingredients for Resurrection Cookies to my shopping list. 

We had an overnight guest last night, a friend of ours from California who is moving out to Connecticut to start a non-profit organization.  It was so fun to catch up with Robb and to hear his vision for their organization.  We love having friends come visit.  Who’s next???

Tonight starts another busy weekend.  We’re invited to a pasta dinner with Brian’s cycling team, and then we’re going to church for a young adult gathering.  I wonder how my kiddos will handle a busy evening!  Tomorrow, Brian’s racing in Tuscaloosa at 11am for a criterium, and on Sunday he’s racing a 70 mile road race.  Whew.  I’m tired just typing it all.  We’ll check back later…

    Just got back from the criterium in Tuscaloosa. I led the first several laps and was in an early break. Kristine was really excited, but we got caught and then another break took off before I had recovered enough to go with them. There were about 45 guys in the race, but only about 20 or so finished because the pace was sooo fast AND there was a really steep hill. I broke away from what was left of the peleton with 4 laps to go (about 4 miles) and was able to stay away. In fact, I almost caught and almost passed the rider who finished 6th. I’m excited about tomorrow’s road race as there is going to be a two-time national champion and current world time trial champion riding my race. It should be fun!

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I ended up in 7th right behind the 6th place guy. The five guys in front of the two of us were a couple minutes ahead. The guy who won it is the same guy who beat me in the road race last weekend. He sure is strong, but I’m going to give him a run for the money tomorrow!
