    A couple years ago someone told me that Valentines was his favorite holiday, not because of commercial crap or flowers or whatever, but because it was a really easy day to tell his boss he was leaving early with no grief, his in-laws to take the kids, and he and his wife could go home and, err, "rep" each other for the rest of the night.

    I suppose it's as good a reason as any for Valentine's day to exist.

    FRIDAY! Knee appointment yesterday. Doc told me to take a third week off from work. Sold! I am still in a fair bit of pain and discomfort. Apparently the meniscus repair is what's hurting...it was stitched in two places. The knee is looking good though and I've already got a 118 degree bend, which is about three weeks ahead of schedule. I need to go easy though...doc says there is no reason to push things. The knee just needs time to heal.

    Valentines day BONUS for me: getting stalked by a former employee of a local gym that one of my employees put in a complaint in against (my employee supports people with disabilities in attending this community center gym). Long story short, my call to the center's Executive Director results in said employee being fired. Now she's calling all 3 of receptionists in my building threatening to sue me, etc, but in a stream of consciousness way that basically screams, "CRAZY!". Luckily, the local Po-Po have been alerted to this person and their potentially deteriorating state.

    At work today. I picked up my fridge for the Kegerator. A brand new stainless mini-fridge for $100. That's less than used ones on Craigslist - win. I got home an Wifey had made dinner and cookies... So much for not doing anything special. I definitely got in trouble last night. I did not care though.

    My intentions this weekend are to make two brews and go boarding w/ Nick at some point.

    Upside: Frickin' packing up for a couple of family days riding at Cranx bike park this weekend! Maybe even meeting W00dy there!

    It's supposed to snow, though...how the hell and I going to fit 3 bikes/equip in a Subie wagon plus 3 people?

    Wheels off, forks lowered, 2/3 side of seat down., bikes upright. It will be tight, but you *might* be able to to it. I'd not put $ on it though.

    Morning.

    V-day was fairly uneventful while on vacation here outside of KC. The women cooked up a very tasty seafood paella for dinner and the guys drank beer and played games on the wii. I realized I'm a little out of shape when I got winded playing wii boxing :eek:

    They have DJ bikes to rent at Cranx so you don't have to bring your own bike.

    Thanks, may be an option for the wife if need be. I'd like to get some cruiser time and get my kid out on the 1st real ride on the mini!

    Morning all. Had a great steak, asparagus, and mashed potatoes dinner last night with the wife. It was pretty awesome.

    This weekend we are going to visit her family in Santa Barbara for the day. Also drop off our tax info with the mother in law (tax professional). Hopefully don't owe this year after a big bonus I got when Dell bought the company I was working for.

    Wow, I expected nothing but got flowers at work and teh hubby made dinner for me--salmon and salad--and it was the bomb!! Quote of the night was 6 year old, "Yeah this food is the bomb, but I'm full now." I laughed. Anyhoo, I enthusiastically received/gave repuatation last night, it was a good time.

    And FVCK YEAH FRIDAY!

    Just dislocated/separated my shoulder slipping on the stairs. Was able to slip it back into place quickly. No I remember why I used to lift weights, to stop this crap from happening all the time. Endorphins are making things nice right now but I am guessing tomorrow morning is going to suck.

    Ouch. The thought of that is making my shoulders hurt. Take it easy on it for a few days. Ice it. Trust me, it will help make the soreness a little better over the next week.

    Unfortunately I am all too familiar with the process. This used to happen regularly until I figured out that building up muscle mass in the shoulder prevented separation. Been away from the gym for a few years and this is what I get. Unfortunately taking it easy isn't an option right now as I am moving in a week.

    The second time I dislocated my shoulder happened in college while I was slamming a garbage can over the head of some random drunk guy who tried to tackle me on the sidewalk. Fortunately the garbage can to the head deterred him from any further action against me in my injured state.
