It all started this morning, when I left the house on time. (One small step for man, one giant LEAP for mankind.) I find it is best to celebrate the small things, which then can snowball into greater things. For example, I left the house on time. This meant that I apparently just avoided getting involved in a rollover accident on County Highway A heading out of town (no idea who's SUV it was, but it is upside down and off the road, and wasn't there before I left this morning). So I know that I am at least having a better day than that person is.
Anyway, I got to my school on time, found a great location to work in (always a bit iffy), saw a super-cute three year old and her mom, and then found out that every other kid on my list was away on an elementary-wide field trip to the movie theatre.
What is a girl to do? Oh, I don't know...how about take advantage of some of that comp time that is accruing?? Don't mind if I do.
Heading into Rice Lake, my only planned stop was to Office Max to fetch some copies for a couple classes I am teaching tomorrow. (More on that later.) But because I suddenly found myself the proud possessor of Free Time, I stopped in at the store closing sale at the K-Mart, and found this:
An adult tricycle! I have been pining for one, for years, I tell you! Years! It needs a new chain, and has some other wear issues as it was a long time floor model, but it was over $100 off. I got myself a matching helmet and a cool blue honka-horn, also waaaaaaaaaay on sale. I love me a honka-horn. Ahhhoooooooogah!
I may also be channeling a touch of this:
Oh, a bike. I am so excited! Now I just need a little doggy to steal and cram into the back basket.
Oh, and for it to be spring. That would be key to bike riding enjoyment.
I hope your Friday is full of delightful surprises. Now, fly! Fly, my pretties! Bwah ha ha ha hah.
