Supposed to be spinning. Supposed.

Today was a tough day at work. Then I'm just winding down, and beginning to think about spin class, when Linda calls to tell me the wind has just about blown some of the siding off our house. The front this time, where I'd have thought would be the last place to be affected by wind.

Head home. Climb up onto the garage in the twilight, hammer in hand. Dodging the ice and snow still on the roof. Poke, prod, push, pull, pound, twist, encourage, and force. Not my idea of a fun time. Then down off the roof, which is always the tricky part of the whole operation. Did I mention the wind is still gusting 30 to 50 kph according to the weather channel? And that it's coming straight across, trying to blow me off the roof the entire time? Like I said, not fun. It's still not right, but I'm hoping it will stay put till Saturday, where I can at least go up in daylight. Some of the trim right up underneath the wainscotting doesn't seem to be fastened properly. Hmmmm, anyone know about siding that wants to show up to the party early?

The good news of the day is that my physio visit went really well. Aside from her trying to twist my arm off to prove to me it will still go straighter. Some of my newer readers have clued in that something happened to it. To recap, I fell off my bike last September, and cracked a bone in my elbow. Things have been coming along. For most things it's essentially business as usual. It's only painful when trying to go to the edge of the range of motion, or trying to do something too quickly. She measured, and my range of motion is almost back to normal. She also says that doing plank, and starting pushups is probably a good thing. Not the full military ones right away, but just doing what the arm will let me, and gradually pushing it. What fun.

So why didn't I take Estela out of the car, get set up, and do a spin? Good question. It's 7:30, and what with one thing and another, I'm ready for bed. I'm thinking about the swim tomorrow, and the long runzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzdrool.
