In other completely non-related news.
Apparently I got my weekends messed up because this weekend was no bueno for washing cars and the such. We woke up to beautiful ominous clouds and I was excited...for surely spring cleaning your car takes second place to a wonderful torrential downpour.However, that excitement passed when we walked out of the oval to a wintry blizzard. Spring rain I'm okay with, but what the heck with the snow...I just don't know if I'm up for any more of it. Luckily, we only had to brave the storm while walking to and from our car at the Home and Garden expo, but more than the storm we braved the crowds of people at said expo. Roy was showing obvious signs of crowd fatigue after only 30 min, and I wasn't doing much better. However, we finally managed to walk the entire expo and see lots of cool things.

good books: I just finished reading "Anne of Green Gables", and I loved it! It was nostalgic and imaginative. But really what else could it be with a main character such as Anne. I wish I had read this book sooner.

Among other news of importance...
We (and when I say we I mean Roy) re-caulked our shower...finally. I just couldn't take looking at that nasty shower anymore. I had wanted to take it on as my project, but after stubbornly cutting and pulling and chiseling away at it for sometime and getting nowhere I relinquished the task over to Roy. I think I would still have been laboriously working that caulk out if Roy hadn't. Thanks babe!
We have also recently added to Roy's hobbies. He has taken up speed skating, and is pretty stoked for the challenge. I can't blame the Olympics entirely because I may or may not have suggested that Roy should try it out. Apparently, it's natural for cyclist and speed skaters to transition back and forth. Roy goes nuts in the winter when he can't ride his bike, so I thought it would be nice if Roy could have a winter sport that he could do that would coincide with his cycling in the summer. Hence Roy is now the owner of his first pair of speed skates. I've really enjoyed seeing how excited he has gotten about them. He gets them out and tinkers and adjusts them....learning the lay of the skate as it were. I love that he takes everything in...I would just be excited about new skates and never take the time to adjust and figure out how they work....one of our many differences.I think that should suffice for the Hoffman update for now...hopefully I won't feel so blocked in the upcoming weeks.
