This is the Netherlands, it's ALWAYS biking around weather. How else are people going to get to work/school etc?

 

 

 

What I meant was, you haven't written about biking around recently.  Don't you have a racing-style bike for longer rides?

Biking is a thing in the Netherlands, as someone who looks up to the dutch i can vouch for that!

Bikes can be used for anything anytime!

 

 

See how i combined things, this is gonna be my highlight of the day... i feel proud!

 

I quite aware of that.  I look up to the Dutch too.  I have my own bakfiet for kid transporting and grocery getting.  As an aside, when I was racing seriously, my most common training partner had Dutch parents.  

 

This is the most important Dutch sport though

Hah.  Don't blame me.  Anyway, the best challenges are unchallenges.

Yeah, but I don't challenge well.  There's always a danger I may move back to the battle logs.

3.14.19  Thursday

 

I am so flipping tired.  

giphy.gif

 

Daylight savings time triggered my insomnia and its budget time at school and there are cuts again, so I'm fretting about that.  Tomorrow we'll find out who's going to be cut.  I have a really good team; I'm afraid I'm going to lose some of them.   

 

Today was pi day.  A big chunk of my students didn't know what pi was.  Ugh.  Our math teacher quit at the beginning of October (the kids were eating her alive) and they've had three or four long-term subs since then.  They finally hired someone on Monday and I think tomorrow she'll find out she won't have a job next year.

 

Minneapolis is crazy treacherous right now.  After all that snow got packed down on the roads and sidewalks we've had a lot of rain and all the storm drains are buried.  I swear I'm going to break a hip walking to work on that wet ice.  I drove the other day and the war rig went completely sideways down the street (it's a terrible winter car) and barely missed slamming into an Audi.  That got my heart rate up.  The weird thing is I was only going 10 or 15 miles an hour.  Every day this week I've heard a tale of a school bus crashing on the way to school.  I hear the freeways are clear though; I ought to get off the side streets.

 

Enough whinging.  Challenge goals.

Cardio - nope.

Power - nope.

Weight - yep.  I actually lost 5# / 2.3 kg after a week of calming down the incessant eating, but it's probably just water weight and will hop back on ;) 

Hydration - I am indeed drinking a beer right now.  A nice, local roselle. I wish I had another.

Dang, I hope budget cuts don't hurt too bad. Down here the legislature is working to mandate 5k/year raises for all teachers.

Thanks.  It seems to be, but not everything has been worked out.  I’ll be fine what ever happens, but some of the people I like won’t be.

Thanks brother.  I’m impressed and surprised.  I may have to give up some of my preconceptions about red states.  I hope it goes through.  I can’t and won’t complain about how much I am paid.  For all it’s faults, MPS pays us fairly (IMO).  Now if only we could get a handle on health insurance costs.  

 

Personally I’ll be okay no matter what, but if the new teachers are chased away my job could get much more difficult.

3/15/19. Friday.  

 

Today is is one of the day’s I love at school.  We’re learning about sound waves and we spend the day making different simple kazoos.  It’s totally obnoxious.  I love our English teacher, but she can be really uptight.  So every year I make a sign that says something like, “Bring your kazoos into Ms. Teacher’s room at your own peril.”   The way six grader’s minds work, they see “bring the kazoos” and are blind to the potential consequence.  So every year they sneak them in and blow them when she isn’t looking and I have plausible deniability. :) 

 

The sixth grade teachers that I was worried about still seem to have a job.  I don’t know about the math teacher though. That position has been a revolving door for at least six years.  They keep hiring new, young teachers that they can “mold” and then don’t support them and they flounder.  

 

Cardio - nope.  

Power - nope. 

Weight - yep. 

Hydration - we went to a bar and grill for fish fry. They stopped carrying the sour beer I like.  Instead I tried a cider & IPA combination, it was worse than you might expect.

And I bet they complain they just don't make teachers like they used to, instead of considering that they may be the problem after all.

Ah :) Yes I do, haven't used it yet this year.. you honestly don't see a lot of people on racing bikes yet, it is warming up a bit now but then you've got to deal with the rain.. I do use my regular bike for transport everyday though.

Hoping and praying things are not going to be as bad as you think.

I think I prefer driving through mud, rather than on ice. Tires can cut through mud, but not through ice (except those fancy winter-chain-things you guys supposedly have?). Then again, I think I'll take our pothole ridden roads to your ice covered ones. You have my respect for NOT crashing into that Audi under these circumstances. :loyal:
