It's a little less than a week away. I hope you haven't forgotten about our first Living Out Loud Project. Don't worry if you haven't figured out what to write about - I'm still working on mine too. But you still have until, we'll say ... 5pm eastern on Sunday February 1 to finish. Just link to your entry in the comments on the original post (linked above) or email me if you don't have a blog. There's a prize! I'm actually looking forward to the ADT installation on Tuesday, if nothing else because it's a new toy to play with. We'll see what the learning curve is for us and my parents as they are our de facto pet sitters. Several of you commented on your empathy for how Rich feels about keeping me safe, and I appreciate all the commiseration. I have come to understand it with him, but he's always had a bit of a worrying streak so it's good to see that he's much like all you other fellas.
I've finished a short trip to Denver and return home Monday morning. Watching the X games while being out here did make me wish for more skills as a snowboarder, but I'm not very good at handling chilly weather. And I don't have enough (read: any) tattoos or alternative clothing to hang with the snowboarders out here. I sat next to a dude on the shuttle bus wearing a scarf, skinny jeans and calculator wrist watch in a non-ironic way.
My brain is mush so I can't eek out any more updates for you this evening. I don't know what day it is or what time it is, since my laptop and insulin pump have stayed on Eastern time while I've been in Mountain time. So I'm carrying my ass to bed ... in a non-ironic way.
