    Shocked

    I'm still in a stated of shock.

    My wife told me to come home and that lunch was ready, she stays at home with our kids so she prepares lunch everyday for me. When I got home there was brand new Mercier Serpens box in my living room. I was blown away. I have been wanting a new bike forever but have put it off due to remodeling our house. I haven't had a new bike since I bought my 89 Haro Master, since then I have been riding my brothers hand me downs. I'm currently riding a 99 Diamondback Invert that is about 30lbs with sora components. I was content with my Diamondback but this is just awesome. I'm so pumped up, I can't wait to get off work and put it together.

    Awesome!!! I wish.

    I just got some unbelievable news at lunch time too. I got a very nice and unexpected bonus. Ahhh, the desires I have but we are on a plan to get out of debt and this will knock off at least a few months from our timeline. Oh, I don't want to wait for a bike, I want it now......

    No at least I hope not. She would hit me in the head twice, once for my above typo and again for my remark.

    She is great and I will surprise her with something, just not sure what it will be.

    Man this afternoon is going by slow, I think I feel the flu coming on, may have to leave early.

    Were you referring to the new bike for him or the bathrobe for her?

    Why'd you have to go and say that? Now I can't even be happy for you.
