So, I finally got back out on the trails!! It's been a little over a year since I last rode, and MAN did it feel good! Cletus got a new bike, and we went for a ride yesterday. We stayed on the easy 2-track trails yesterday (gotta break him in easy ya know!), but today, we rode part of the mountain bike trails. The slightly less technical/difficult part called The Pines. It was a lot of fun!! Next time, we may actually tackle half the route! I love biking!! Great weekend, great Monday (for the first time in a looooong time)!

A Few 'Firsts' For Me

So, yesterday, I spent about half of my day at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. My list of firsts:
First time being in a hospital as the patient.
First time having a tube crammed down my throat.
First time wearing a hospital gown.
First time in a wheelchair after the procedure.
First time having Vicodin prescribed to me (just in case).
I'm sure there's more...but I can't think of them now.

I'm good though! No problems, I'm healthy. Nothing major...don't worry! :-)

This weekend...

Well, I'll actually start with Friday. I decided that I really like this whole 'wireless oakland' thing, even though I can't get a signal at my apartment (which is in Oakland county...go figure). But I do get a strong enough signal in the conference room at work, so my lunch is now fully occupied :-)

Saturday, the day was spent at Cedar Point with Cletus, and my 10 year old niece Cassandra. The weather was fantastic!! Sunny and 75* all day. Couldn't have asked for better weather. Oh, and's just as entertaining to watch a 27 year old guy riding roller coasters as it is to watch a 10 year old girl!! I gotta give props to both of them. They both got on Millennium Force with me! Yay! Me and Cletus rode the Cork Screw, but Cassandra was just a little was kinda scary for me to see her that way, but she bounced right back with a little food and water in her system! We also rode Mean Streak, Gemini, Mantis, Raptor, Iron Dragon (staple ride...gotta do it), Magnum, Mine Ride, Blue Streak (another staple ride...), Thunder Canyon, the Sky Ride (cause we were sick of walking), and of course, the train. We caught up with the Carousel at the end of the day too. Cedar Point is awesome! I want to go back again before the end of this season so Cletus and I can ride Top Thrill Dragster and Maverick.

Sunday...well, Sunday was fantastic. That is all. Just fantastic.....
