I did my last ride of the month yesterday and it started out with a weird feeling of "man, something isn't right." It had been a weird day at work so I was like "meh, probably just weird vibes from work holding out."

I get halfway through my ride and realize what was wrong. I happened to look down and was like "you dope, you didn't change your shoes." I still had my sandals on from when I ran the dogs outside.

Needless to say, I don't do clipless.

So I now have all next week and thru Wed of the next week off to go deer hunting Maybe some upland bird hunting too.....

I will get up at my regular time and get the boys to the bus stop by 06:00 for them to go to school, and then go see about getting a deer, after I get back I can change out and go for a ride , and finally I can go out in the evening to see what I can see hunting

I would have been holding up my end of the bargain, but I went camping for the weekend! Got one ride in. Went from San Clemente State Beach to the south end of Pendleton and back.

Packed up the master bedroom, master bath and the living room. Contractors are in there driving the dogs crazy even as I type. Apparently, something worth barking about is worth barking about forever.

ANOTHER remodel project? Why didn't you just knock down the whole place except for that one wall and rebuild it?

Are you offering to finance the whole thing all at once?

Pft. My kitchen still has seafoam green tile edges from when I bought the house 15 years ago. I figure I'm ahead of it coming into style again.

Remodeling is PITA. We ordered flooring from that orange depot place. Laminate for the landing and stairs and carpet for the upstairs living room and hall. They ripped out the carpet on the stairs and the linoleum on the basement floor and it all went silent. Even the dog quit barking. Wrong step materials for our steps! that was about 2 weeks ago, still don't have the right stuff yet. And why does the dog have to bark for hours on end when contractors are around?

While you're at it, lower the whole lot and flatten out your driveway!

Actually, that would only solve half the problem, and not even the worst half. I go down the driveway and then it's flat for a bit, and then the nasty part. Ideally, somebody would just raise that road so there's no down and up action. Unfortunately, it's a private road and I own it with my neighbors and I suspect nobody else is interested.

You guys are just full of great ideas today though, keep 'em coming!

Seriously, if you are remodeling the master bath, be sure to install a heated floor with a programmable thermostat. Really nice feature for not much extra money. We have our floor set to start warming to 80 starting at 0500. By the time we get up it's nice and comfy.

We have hot water radiators and those do a wonderful job of keeping the floor in the bathroom warm. Works great as a towel warmer for when you get out of the shower
