I need to pedal faster.

I keep falling sooooo behind on everything! I have a feeling things will only get worse once the kids are out of school, a date which is racing towards us!

The twins, Averie, and I made a marathon road-trip to Denver this past week. We left Thursday evening and just made it home last night!

I used to go to college at UNC in Greeley, and my best college friend tied the knot on Saturday. I hadn’t seen her or my other friends from that area in 12 years! TWELVE YEARS! If that doesn’t age me, I don’t know what does. It was so awesome to see her and all the others, why, oh why, do I let the years slip by with no visits?

Since I am such a multi-tasker, I decided to look at a house I have been eyeballing while I was there, plus a few neighboring finds. The Realtor met me at an exit about 45 minutes south of Denver, and I followed behind him. Holy hell, I am so glad I did not meet him at the house, like I had originally planned. The roads were dirt, steep, and filled with hairpin turn after hairpin turn. I had to do some crazy parking tricks, and for those of you who know me personally, you know that I am a parking-phobe.

I am pretty sure no school bus could EVER handle those roads, which would mean ME driving up and down them at least twice a day. And sometimes IN THE WINTER. Oh, HELL NO.

Hopefully, we will check out some other areas this summer and find something more suitable for our family. You know, something that doesn’t require ice picks and safety ropes.

    Just keep swimming! I am so glad that my kids are not getting ready to get out for the summer. Good luck on your run.

    I need to pedal faster, too. If I don't I just might fall off my bike.
