Missed weekend trip

Bec and I were planning to go to Huntsville to see B and J and little John Henry. However John began puking his guts up Friday and continued all night, hence we bailed as everyone at their house was exhausted, Betsy had no clean clothes since she got thrown up on at least 7 times, and we didn't want to get that stomach virus.

I ended up doing the usual training for the half Ironman on Sept 23 (riding and running a lot), while Bec got motivated and cleaned closets out. I've managed to sacrifice some old favorite T-shirts and several pairs of jeans that are way to big for me (I wore bigger jeans back when I needed a waistband that was a few sizes larger then I am now). Things are organized, but of course my organized piles are gone and I have no clue where anything is. House does look good.
Major props to Bec!!!

I mowed the lawn this weekend, which consisted of me using the weedwacker for 5 minutes to hack back a couple spots where grass has grown this month, i.e. around the mailbox and the end of the driveway. We haven't actually mowed the yard since July sometime, however the crab grass is growing strong onto the driveway. It grew probably 18 inches onto the driveway, but I hacked it back.

Two of my buddies finished Ironman Louisville (KY) yesterday (yes that is a 2.4 mi swim, 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 mi run)!!! Watched online updates on where they were and saw Scott Bourne finish live online. Pretty cool.

I'll post picts of the new washer and dryer eventually.
