You all know how I love the NFL. When the Ray Rice thing came out originally months ago – I gave it the serious side eye because while we didn’t see what went on in the elevator at that time, it was obvious this woman was hit hard enough [...]

No more second job

I had accepted that second job a few weeks ago. When I first interviewed with the company, I watched an introductory video and I was a little uncomfortable with the owner, but I figured it was just some nervousness about working for a new place and all that and figured I would give it a [...]

Working from the new house

Scheduling has been pretty whackadoodle around here. I have been working both jobs, one of which is pretty slow now (which isn’t a bad thing with learning new stuff). The work has been sporadic with both jobs, so I decided to work from the new house so that when it was slow I could do [...]

Labor Day riding

Labor Day was filled with some riding, some working and some birthay party! The day went really fast. I did work in the morning. There wasn’t much, so it was easy to clean out. Then we decided to go riding. We had plans to go to the lake.

Things were going well, but then I [...]

Bagel Day!

It’s Bagel Wednesday! I was up too early and did some work before we biked to breakfast. It was 57 degrees out, too! Eeeek! That feels like fall biking weather.

It was a beautiful morning, even if it was cold. The sun was breaking through the clouds when we got to Coffee Planet.


The work begins!


We did the closing this morning. Shortest closing ever! We had gotten the funds over earlier in the week, so today was just signing paperwork. We only had to sign 3 documents, can you believe that? It was sort of anticlimactic. Then the lawyer told us we could not take possession of [...]

Beating the rain

Two days to closing – EEEEEEE! We have transferred the funding, so it just needs the formality of signatures now. I am getting pretty excited!!!

I planned a bike ride for exercise on Tuesday and noticed it was getting cloudy. John said rain was due to start in 40 minutes (according to Accuweather), so I [...]

Closing date!!!

Things got a little exciting around here in Radiance Land! We have been waiting and waiting since January and today finally got the clear to close on Radiance Manor! We had heard last month that it might be getting close, but we were trying not to to get any hopes up since this is glacial [...]

Saratoga Ride!

Another great Saturday for riding! We are joking that we aren’t getting anything done around the house or doing errands because we have been saving them for a rainy weekend and there haven’t been any for a while! We headed down to Saratoga. It was all road riding down and we took a more straight [...]


We had rain come through last night and today was glorious in the 70s. It was so hot and humid earlier in the week. I know you southern peeps are used to that stuff, but I cannot hack it. It makes me cranky and I don’t need any help with that LOL!

Work has gotten [...]
