Finally put my Revolights back on the Pacer. Feeling good enough to think I can get back to riding. About time too. Although it seems like I'm completing all my activity circles without riding, nor am I gaining a bunch of weight, which I thought would have happened by removing an hour of daily calorie burning exercise. Go figure. I guess walking does a body good. Another health related tidbit: I no longer have a standing desk at work. Go figure. I wonder if I could set something up temporarily, since I work from a laptop now. But then again, I haven't had the urge. Had a craving last night for The Cheesecake Factory cheesecake, so Postmates to the rescue. Expensive, but totally hit the spot. Figure I could indulge since Tracy went out with friends to watch the Rousey fight. Kinda crazy.

So Jackson doesn't understand what the end of Daylight Savings Time means. On top of that, he's now able to get out of the crib by himself. Which means I've been up at 4am all this week, except for this morning, when he got out of his room at 3am. Good times. And to think I was wondering why I haven't been able to shake this head cold completely yet. Spent a couple afternoons at the new data center for work. A real data center. I forget, but I have to go through a man trap to get in. It's impressive. House is getting closer. More lights and speakers, and I saw a picture of the 2 racks that are going in to my data closet in the basement. Tracy's put up a couple closet organizers, and we have ours ready for the his/hers in the master. Getting close. Really close.

Been 2 weeks and I think I'm finally kicking this sickness to the curb. One of those mullets of a disease. Flu up front and a cold out back, which ended up being the long tail. But, fingers crossed, I'll feel well enough to start biking to work again. Of course because of Daylight Savings Time ending, I need to put my Gen 1 RevoLights back on the bike. I'm jealous of the the Indiegogo for the newest version, Eclipse. If only mine would break or something. Someday. I did manage to get warmmuffs for the kids so if/when we do go back out on the xtracycle they'll be prepared. Jackson's decided 4:45am is his wakeup, so that's mine too. Thinking I should shift my bedtime to mirror his, but 8pm is awfully early. At work I've gone from a 10x19" LCD setup to a laptop screen. Kinda nice, mostly because it's a widescreen. I did make it out to Stan's Donuts sometime in the past 2 weeks. It was very good, and I'll be back. I did dress up for Halloween at work. Brought out the Aladdin costume, the one from high school. Might be time to start building up costume supplies, because, why not? Got an afro wig and some ninja swords (with backpack carrier) for 50% off at Target today. Had to switch DVRs for Comcast, and got stuck with a very loud new one. Hoping I can stick it out until we move. But it's really loud.

Somehow managed to get the flu again. Slightly different than the last one, which was fairly recent, this time with a sore throat. Came on fast, Friday night. Full body ache seems to be over, but now have the head congestion. Got called out by Carter at work for a halloween costume. Might just reuse an old existing costume, not sure I can come up with something in a couple weeks or not. And can't play off the kids costumes, not much for adults in the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls world. Went to a birthday party out at the DuPage Children's Museum yesterday. Pretty entertaining place for the kids. Tracy and Lucy made Monkey Bread for breakfast. It was fabulous. I think it was relatively easy too. Been wanting to go to Stan's Donuts in their new LakeView location, but for some reason Jackson doesn't want to go in the early morning when we're up and no one else is. One of these days.
