Why I won't be winning anything for this months edition of NaBloPoMo.
Yesterday was kinda busy. I woke up and tried to get a quick cycle in on my trainer, but I wasn't feeling it. 4 miles later, I went upstairs and changed into my running clothes.
It was about 25 degree (-4 or so I'm thinking for my non-US readers), and it was really misty. It was actually quite pleasant to run in, and I returned home covered in frost, with little balls of ice on the ends of my eye lashes.
Then it was off for a quick stint at Church, whereat it was only confirmed to me that I really need to get out of this teaching gig.
As a complete aside, have you ever realize just how many holes there are in the story of Adam and Eve?
Back from Church, changed into cycling clothes and went to hook up with a couple of tri-club members for the annual polar bear ride, which we all missed on New Years Day.
The air was crappy and cold, but it was actually nice to not be indoors. Got to meet a few new triathlete friends and returned home. All in all a good day, except that I was wiped out by the end of it, and forgot to blog.
I spent most of today installing a new water heater. Easy enough, except when they built the house, they put the heater in, and then installed the gas and framed around it... There was no way of getting it out.
So far I have taken out a big section of 1 wall and a bit of the adjacent wall. I've also removed 4 studs. Home Depot opens tomorrow at 6am. I'll be there shortly thereafter to purchase a pipe cutter, some MAAP gas, and I then hope to learn how to solder pipes. Hopefully I'll get to work before noon, leaving Mrs Koda, with access to a hot water source that runs at more than just a trickle.
