Didn't bike Monday, but ended up walking two miles on Tuesday, and you better believe that I was feeling that this morning when I went out on the bike. OUCH.

Actually made some money yesterday, for the first time in, oh, a year. not much, but hey, no complaints. Snagged some DVDs I've been wanting, and when the job is done, I'll make a bit more. That'll get my new blender, which I seriously need.

Let's see, for those that didn't know, dravengodvamp is at my place again, for about a week or so. He and a friend are staying here and working for a bit before they head to Texas. Always good to have him around, even knowing that this time, it'll be a long time before I see him again, most likely. Maybe I can talk him into one more small tattoo before he goes. ;)

On the family front, things are shifting into high gear. Ray is out of the rest home/whatever-they-call-it. he was re-evaluated, and the doctors and insurance all agreed he should be in the hospital's rehab unit, so he's back there now. Much nicer place, not so depressing. He's moving his legs some, still not his feet, though. Regardless, he's making major progress, and they are saying he'll be home in 5 to 6 weeks, probably with a wheelchair, but home. This is a good thing, of course, but it does mean that everyone's plans just got stepped up in a major way. Originally, we'd all been talking about a possibility of us moving out to the farm, but it was a "worst case" scenario. The more we all talked, though, it was sounding like a good idea, there are too many things that'll need the extra help. So, we'd planned on maybe getting out there before Ray got home, to make the transition easier. However, if he's gonna be home that soon, that may not happen, but it means we're locking down the options and trying to figure things out, and I mean NOW. So, who knows, I may have a new address soon...and a lot less free time, while I help take care of a partially disabled old man. Hmm. Not exactly how I pictured life, but not so bad. Mostly means I won't be able to disappear into CoH for hours at a time. Yeah, that kinda sucks.

Wish I wasn't hungry right now. Wish a lot of things. Wishing is useless.

At least you're out biking and the new turnaround point will you do you some good.

Hey, if his insurance says that he needs to have or allows him to hire someone to help him with daily tasks, you could get paid by the insurance company or the government or whomever for doing what it sounds like you'll be doing for free. It's something to think about if they're going to do that for him. If not, no worries.

Yeah, I kremember we'd talked about that a while back. Not sure if that's going to come in handy, but I've got it in the back of my mind.

That my friend is a great thing to do. Shows that you have a heart, and care very much. Most people won't move away from their current situation just to help another. Family or not. In the excercise catagory... The Army forces me to run miles and miles =( 2mi on our Physical Fitness Test. and even then I have a maximum time of 16min. BOO!! Keep up the physical commitment, you are doing great!!

Yeah, but when you get an oppotunity to do what you love, where you love, with who you idolize...you go for it.
