this weekend benj and i are the official support crew for dan's big bike ride. he has been riding 100 miles every saturday to gear up for LOTOJA again this year. major training going on despite our messy living out of suitcase lifestyle. we'll be cheering for you, babe. dan is the man when it comes to setting a goal and accomplishing it. the big thing for dan and co. is to eat small salted red potatoes, cooked of course, during the ride for refueling on carbs and sodium. we're also toting ham & cheese sammys and tiny jugs of chocolate milk too. wholesome and simple. what will they think up next?
next week (and the week after that) will be a little nuts. but thus is our life right now. i can already feel it, my shoulders are tensing up. it's exciting and exhausting, kind of like the summer we just had. and my logical mind knows that no matter how many lists i write, moving is moving is moving. it's chaotic and crazy. no matter how you crack it. there is no systematic way to move. and we're not even officially moving until the 24th. til then we're bombarding my sisters' homes with our wild ways and fickle schedules and diagonal cut sandwiches and stuffed suitcases; what good husbands they have. (sisters will do anything for each other, husbands have a bit more sense.) as we have house hopped from one to another, am feeling so grateful for family. they know us entirely and yet, still love us anyway.
now have a good weekend and ride strong and hold on.
p.s. am not sure when i'll get around to my big blog-a-versary post.. but i must put this in writing: martawrites is FIVE years old. shout hooray! more celebrating to come.
