It's been a long day and I'm exhausted. As a matter of fact I could have gone to bed over an hour ago when I got home from work, but I forced myself to stay up for some reason.

Now i'm off to bed. Goodnight.

(there OGO, I posted!) :)

just passing by to clean off the cobwebs. Not much new on this front. I've started cycling more. A lady at work was looking to get rid of a bike from her had been sitting there for the last 5 years and was looking for a home. I took it off her hands for the low price of free. Cleaned it up, put some new tires on it, and I've put about 120 miles on it so far. It looks to be pretty good for the body too, which needs it. I've been straddling that 200lb mark for awhile, but i've been too lazy to do anything about it. This was that something.

I enjoy biking, whether it's with a neighbor or by myself. One of my neighbors bikes quite a bit, and it's tough to keep up with him. It's nice because he keeps me motivated and pushes me to go a little faster and harder than normal. The other neighbor is 300+ lbs and is also in the weight-loss boat. Like the first neighbor, I like to push the second one to go a little harder, and we have a good time. It's a lot of fun. I wish Omaha were more bike friendly, because I'd love to eventually be able to bike to work, at least in the decent months. Sadly, it's so spread open and people in cages (cars) don't know how to cohabitate with cyclists on the roads, so I don't see myself doing that any time soon.

I hope to stop by again soon and update my status. Hopefully I will be boasting about lost pounds and canteloupe calves!

Merry Christmas!

I know I don't stop by here anymore, but I figured I'd at least wish my visitor(s) a Merry Christmas. Here's a special song for you:

I'm not necessarily back to blogging, but I just thought I'd post a quick update here. It's September, and that means that it's the best time of the year. COLLEGE FOOTBALL! My Cornhuskers are a new team with a new coaching staff and the Husker fans are pumped up. I attended the home opener last Saturday and it was LOOOOOUUUUUD! It was my first game since I'd moved to Phoenix 7 years ago, so it was obviously special to me too. We kicked some serious Western Michigan butt, and although we made a lot of mistakes on defense, we've got plenty of time to improve before we see any real competition.

With that said, I need to go watch the SC game which is starting back up now. Take care everyone, and GO BIG RED!

Chick magnet

Shortly after moving back to Nebraska, my mother in law signed Ian up for a 4H activity, hatching and raising baby chickens, similar to what you see here:

For the past several weeks, he has played the part of mother hen, rotating the eggs in the incubator (I'm not really sure mother hens rotate their eggs, and most certainly they don't use an incubator, but that's neither here nor there.). This morning, much to his and Kendra's excitement, the first chick hatched. Much like most things when they are newborn, it was kinda ugly, but after a day in the incubator, it is starting to resemble the picture above. I'm sure we'll go through similar reactions as the remaining 11 eggs hatch.
And although this probably didn't cross your mind, the chicks are broiler-ready in 6-8 weeks. That's straight from the 4H manual, folks. Now, how am I going to convince Ian that Fluffy will make a great snack???? And at what point to I apply the hot sauce?

An old video

I found this video that my son made several months back when we still lived in Phoenix. I thought it was kind of humourous, so I figured I'd share it. Sorry it's a cliffhanger...I'm not sure what the end result was, but I'm sure it wasn't good for our friend Jack!

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to anyone who happens to stop by :)
