    How was your Labor Day Weekend?

    So, how was your guys Labor Day weekend?

    After work Friday, I played some pick-up Ultimate, then hung out with friends for the night
    Saturday, got up at the crack of noon, played some Disc Golf, then hung out with friends for a board game night
    Sunday, more pick-up, followed by a BBQ, followed by "Balls Of Fury" the new ping pong movie
    Monday, went flying with a buddy, flew over Niagra Falls, then went out on a bike ride with Tude and USAZorro, then went to a coffee shop with a friend for coffee and Ice Cream.

    Lets See...Saturday was contractor in my kitchen effin up the job all day long.
    Sunday was take it easy day and not get my BP too high every time I looked at the effed up job the contractor did on Saturday.
    Yesterday was take kid on driving lesson (she finally drove on the road, yay!) and run some errands. Then 50 minutes on my trainer to get a good endorphin load so that I no longer cared about how the contractor effed up my kitchen.
    Today...I expect a phone call from said contractor so I can detail out what they effed up!

    Did not touch a bike, but had great times with the kids, had some neighbors over for dinner, watched some football, did some yard work and hung some lighting in the front courtyard.

    So MV, how bad is the kitchen? I mean are you basting turkeys in the dishwasher and having to open the fridge to wash your hands?

    lets see...20K worth of cabinets, they drilled the holes for the knobs and handles crooked. This means they will have to order new drawers and doors. That'll take 2 more weeks. They mounted one side of the kitchen cabinets too high...I can't even see what is in the microwave, its so high .
    They screwed up the crown molding...god knows why they thought they should cut the moulding and try to use two pieces when one piece would have done just fine. The "box" that the fridge sits in needs to be finished on the inside too, so you don't see the underside of the cabinets on top of it.
    They didn't put any molding around the bottom of the cabinets, so it does not look finished at all.

    This contractor SUX!

    Saturday - long ride with some semi-local BF members - StupidlyBrave and RoadToNowhere. After surviving near bonkage, long drive to Rochester
    Sunday - major crash day
    Monday - medium length ride with Tude and Squegeeboo. Eboo got word I was coming and got afraid. We missed the chance to detour past the Rochester Public library, and Rush Rhees (the U or R library) - then long drive back to PA.
    Tuesday - hoping none of Tude's pictures make me look like too goofy.

    Last night was interesting. My roommate came home around 11 or so. Apparently she had gotten into a fight with her ex. She had gotten a text from her current BF on her phone, he picked up her phone, read the text, and then grabbed her throat screaming at her. She then hit him in the face so he would let go(he ended up having six stitches above his eye). Then he threw her phone across the room, breaking it. Apparently, he also owes her some money, which she was depending on for her share of the rent. So it looks like I'm covering the whole amount until she gets paid in a week and a half.

    So crazy ex comes around to the apartment at three in the morning, banging on the door. After about half an hour of banging she goes out to talk to him(I wanted to call the police, but she wouldn't let me). I end up monitoring from inside the apartment to make sure he doesn't do anything crazy. Finally, at around 5:30 they finish and I can go back to bed. All kinds of fun and excitement here in the QC.

    Let's see. I spent the day with paradox to celebrate his 24th. We ended up playing WoW for most of the day then went out to dinner.

    It was a really nice weekend, lot's to do plus time to kick back and chill.

    Friday - did a 55 mile ride with friends up and along Fall Creek in the National Forest
    Saturday - did a 75 mile ride with a group of 10 riders into the Coast Range, lots of climbing.
    Sunday - Went wine tasting with friends, listened to music at a couple of the wineries.
    Monday - went mountain biking at Waldo Lake in the Cascades, so much single track, so little time!

    Now I need to get to packing, the 7 day Cycle Oregon starts on Saturday.

    My tenant (downstairs) split with her obnoxious big mouthed boyfriend last weekend - SEE YA! But then he comes around so they can - fight. Great.

    And that's what they did this weekend - sit on the porch (we can hear every word) and fight - and stomp, slam doors, cry, scream. Good grief. Every evening this past weekend. Heard a nice creash - when big and fugly slammed the doors on the way out of the house. And this house is sold, although has not changed hands. Have to check doors/walls for damage when I go home tonite. But of course, when confronted to either of them - they didn't do it.

    Great weekend. Rode my bike twice, paddled the river twice, had friends over for a cookout, went to a cookout, went to a party on the river.

    But I think the most fun was taking my 7yo down the river in our tandem canoe with my wife along in her kayak.

    I've had roommates get in fights with GFs, and/or ex-GFs in the front yard before. Apparently they don't understand the rudeness of screaming at each other at 3 in the morning in the lawn when you have neighbors. The worst was when a GF dropped a kid off at my house who didn't even live there. First I had to get them to stop screaming at each other, then she drives off, and I have to deal with the drunk SOB for the night until I can take him home in the morning.
