I traded the kids for a handful of magic beans
Ok, not really. But I do have 3 days without kids! Our schedules reached a new level of insanity. No amount of calendar mamba-ing would dance me out of this mess. My parents agreed to take the kids for a few days to get over this hump. When I met them for the drop off, there was my mom, with a bag of green beans and peas fresh out of the garden (and a smile), saying "trade ya'". Best deal I made in a while!
When I got home from work and class last night, there waiting in my garage was my bike. All aired up, cleaned up and ready to ride - thanks honey! It was like seeing an old friend. Me and bike (his name is Tiger) are going to have an intense, yet short affair over the next few days and log some miles. I can't wait!
Now, if I could just trade the "magic beans" for some cool weather and a few hundred percent lower humidity...
