Happy Birthday to Marni!

Today is Marni's 24th birthday and she's having a pretty good one. In fact I'm about to go make her a cake while she watches American Idol in her new comfy clothes.

My day however has not been too smooth. I did manage to make it out of the house early. However before I left, I found the leak in our basement under our water heater to be worse than yesterday. We called the home warrenty people and they're coming tomorrow to see what's going on. At lunch I was supposed to meet with David for a ride. He called shortly before we were supposed to meet to let me know he was running a few minutes late. I tied up a couple things in the office and then left 20 minutes later. Unfortunately I cruised up and down Sims for an hour and never met up with him before I had to go back. David I hope everything is okay, let me know what happened! Did we just miscommunicate our meeting spot? After being a bit disappointed at lunch I finished up a bunch of tests in the afternoon. Of course at 4 pm I found out I had to get a bunch of tests done by 9 am tomorrow, right when the plumber is supposed to come, so I stayed late and finished them tonight. After another hour and a half I cruised home on the Monocog, dropped off my work stuff and grabbed my lock. I rode up to the store and got some basic supplies to get us through the week. Marni had dinner ready when I got home and it was great.

So I survived today and let's hope tomorrow goes a bit better. My easy rides today spun out my legs a bit and I'm hoping they're ready for the time trial intervals tomorrow evening.

No problem Dave. Not a big deal. We'll hook up soon for a ride :)

We figured out it's not the water heater tonight. Instead it's the drain backing up when we run the sink, flush the toliet etc. It doesn't appear to be gross water so hopefully the plumber man can fix it tomorrow when he comes. For now we've barricaded the drain with towels and are going to limit water useage as much as we can.
