ribs starting to feel normal – yay!

Y’know, the saying is correct: you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone.

And much like last year, I’m itching to get back on my bike after being injured. I’m very glad that the injury isn’t the same scope as my shoulder – that would be unbearable. A bruised rib is not fun – it hurts more often than did the shoulder – but it heals much faster.

The commute on GUTS is hit-or-miss. Sometimes the bus is running on-time, without a long queue to board. Other times, it’s easier to ride Metrobus or walk.

I want my bike back – soon. And I’ll be back on my wheels in a week or so – thank goodness!

going into domestic mode (for a good cause)

It’s now November 1, which means the beginning of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo.

sprite is a participant in this endeavor, where she is to write a 175-page novel over the next month. She’s nervous as all getup about it, but she’ll do fine.

As such, I’m now in domestic mode: doing all the cooking, most of the cleaning, listening to the ideas. I’m the shoulder to cry on and the ear that will listen. I will provide the ibuprofen, tea, cookies, ice cream or chocolate when needed. I’ll make sure that I’m not interrupting her (note to self: might need to move PS2 into bedroom again), and I’ll try and make sure she gets some sleep amidst all the madness.

Go, sprite, go!

(And a big “go” to Jenn, too!)
