Wednesday, April 27, 2011 - GeneralA lot has happened since The Sea Otter and here's some of it.
On Monday, our little Australian Shepard, Jens, went in to get his balls cut off. We took him to the Vet School at UC Davis, so he could help future doctors. They explained to me that he might die and then just took him. He could have died and I didn't get to say goodbye. Maybe they do that because people freak out.
Since the dog was out of the house I whipped out the dynamic duo of Bissell Healthy Home Vacuum and Deep Cleaner. I was very happy with the results and our apartment stopped smelling like dog. For at least a few days.
Jens came back with a dish. It was hilarious to see him bump into things and get all frustrated. He, however, was not laughing and just started to mope around.
Then my mom came in for a couple days over the weekend. Now you get why I cleaned the apartment. It was only her second visit down since I've lived in Davis. When she came our fridge and freezer were empty, when she left, they were full. What more can you ask for?
Saturday, I signed up for a checking account at Chase. I thought it would make my life easier. They'd give $125 and I can deposit checks by picture. Then, yesterday, I got these text messages.
Turns out that since I opened the account online it was flagged as fraud. So after a rather boring trip down to the bank I should have an account in a few days. So much for making my life easier.
Yesterday I traveled to Silver City, NM for the Tour of the Gila. High winds grounded our plane so we took a shuttle bus from Albuquerque. It was a solid 4 hours of good times.
Today I raced stage 1. It went good. A lot like last year but with more attacking and less climbing.
And that's been my last week, or 10 days if you're counting.
