This afternoon my wife and I turned over the keys to our old apartment near UTD in Dallas. I'm sad to be moving away from Jsharr, I can no longer use his place as the destination for a quick 15mi out-and-back ride in the evenings. But very excited to be completely "moved" in to our new home in Allen, Tx. I still have a cycling worthy route that will get me down to Jsharr's so he's not completely safe from me dropping in nearly unannounced if I have enough time for the trip.
Oh, and by "moved" I mean there's a dozen boxes of books and such at my parent's place, and at least a month's worth of work ahead before I can even consider us "settled" into the new place. New carpet for the Master bedroom won't be here till near the end of the month and till at least the paint is done in there we've got the bed set up in the Family room. Hopefully between the painting, flooring, yard work, etc I can still manage to even remember how to ride a bike. Yay home ownership! Seriously, I'm very happy to have my own place and out of the apartment, but I some how don't see myself getting 3k miles this year on the bike.
and of some of the updates we've done
Oh, and thanks to who ever it was in my Bamboo thread that recommended Ambient Bamboo - I got samples from them and it looks like great stuff for the price. I'll likely be ordering from them some time soon.
