Yes yes yes, it has been a very long time but since I am written sick for another week let me take the time to write. I have been sick and I am not liking it. I am also not a very good patient. Rest, what? I don’t understand. Well, I went to work yesterday and by the end of the day was done. So, today I am doing the best I can with relaxing (sewing is relaxing, isn’t it?).
Big things going on with HumBird. I am getting my first shipment of cloth from China by boat. 12 rolls. Getting 1 roll at a time was costing me a ton. I can get 200kg shipped for the same cost as buying 1 roll flown in when I need it. The catch, I have to order 200kg (that is about 12 rolls, well, there is an extra roll as there was a color velour I couldn’t say no to).
This will allow me to keep my costs down and perhaps one day lower the free shipping to less money. Not sure yet but lets see.
I have met some fabulous people lately. Let me just share how drugged I was the last 2 weeks on pain medicine. I met a new woman and she has a daughter Clyde. Well, I actually had a dream that I was explaining to her why she should name her next child Bonnie. Seriously, I actually was woke up from the dream and was contemplating this.
Not being allowed to run has been a bit depressing. Marina asked me if I was going to do the triathlon this year again. I wasn’t going to as I wasn’t positive last year that I wouldn’t need to be rescued from the swim. (I am not a good swimmer). Then I thought, I have to do it for Marina.
Now I have heard, it is only 200m, how hard can it be. OK, you are in a huge pond with 250 people (most semi-professionals) and you all start. This is no pool swimming, people are banging into you, you try and take a breath and the waves cause you to swallow water. So, this year, me and my non-professional bikini will go in the water after the buzzer and not care. Sounds good. Also, me and my touring bike with rake and automatic lights will smile next to the titanium tri-bikes next to me (or should I say in front of me).
Well, time for kindergarten. Love to you all. =)
