Well. I guess I can ride again

If you guys remember, I had to stop riding my brand new bike because I had to take a job over the road in a truck. Well, I couldn't get a medical card because my a1c was too high. Nevermind the fact that I've brought it down 2 points in a month. The dr wouldn't even talk to me about it. So, I rode in a truck to Springfield, Mo for them to tell me to just get back home the best way I can. Its just a good thing that my friend, who I was going to team drive with, got a load going back through Ga and I'll ride with him. Otherwise, I was stuck here.

Anyway, one good thing that is coming out of this whole mess is, I'll be able to ride again in a few days! YAY for riding. Not yay for still being unemployed. Dammit.

Hmmm.....win some/lose some. Unemployment sucks, but hopefully you might be able to pass the time away by riding. Best of luck.

On my way home right now. Will be home tomorrow and the 3rd thing I'm doing is getting on my bike after kissing my wife and packing in that order.
