Friday 09-10-10 - Bicycle Hell

As everyone knows I got my new bike this week and I brought it to Deer camp with me today.  Now picture this box below in the back seat of my Honda Civic.  This only took 3 people 30 minutes to get this big old box in my back seat.  Now it gets really good when I get to Port Gibson and I try and get this box out of my car by myself.  I do this and get it up the steps and into the trailer all by myself.  This little exercise should at least take off 2 or 3 lbs due to the way it wore me out.  Well back to the bike and getting it out of the box and put together.   It came out of the box pretty good due to all the wire ties on it. 


As you can see this is one big box, but here is my bike and I was ready to put Merlin together or so I thought.



Now here is Merlin out of the box and ready to put together.  I set down with the directions and this lasted about 20 minutes and I threw them across the room.  The directions to this bike was written by an engineer from China.   Now I am about 2 hours into putting this bike together and wish I had brought it put together at Walmart. 



Four hours later I would like to introduce you to Merlin..   My hubby came in and finished it for me and aired the tires up.  I can hardly wait to ride it tomorrow and I will take some pictures of my bike ride.  It has been years so I am going to take is slow this weekend.   Well I pretty much wrote a whole blog about my bike so  I will now go and read some posts.  I have not had much time to read any this week it has been busy being in the office by myself except for Thursday and Friday.  We had my friend Lorie come in for a couple of days to help me get caught up. 

Here is yesterdays food journal...

Debbie said...

Karla,

A WW cheeseburger is a Weight Watchers frozen cheese burger. They are about the size of a Krystal or a White castle. I love them and you just pop them in the Microwave and they are ready in 1 min.
