Well, lots of problems persist, but no matter how down I want to be about things, the family is healthy (more or less) and all these things I want are just that; things I dream about. The weather hasn’t cooperated lately, but next week it is supposed to improve, giving me a better chance at riding daily, which is sure to improve my mood considerably.

I have decided to withdraw head from ass and get on with things.

Next week should be a nice, mellow cruise, followed by a four-day weekend where I plan to get a great deal done.
