its been a long long time since I posted in my blog, I am bad! but its ok, I've been keeping my real life journal up to date with the boring details of my life.
sooo whats happened. I went on a fun visit to california where my sister lives. I was there almost a whole week...we did lots of things, and it was really pretty there...cold, but pretty.

my doggy cylar had some weird bumps on his skin before I went to california, and some odd swollen red eyes - which he was being treated for. when I returned home it was out of control! I took him to the vet and they had no idea what was going on. I finally took him to another vet a week ago and they did a biopsy and i think they figured out what the problem was. They said he has something called lymphohistiocytic dermatitis but they said its really rare, and they're not sure yet how to treat it. My 'new' vet is trying to speak with other specialists to figure out how to treat him. He seems to be getting better on his own at this point though.

I started playing roller derby again...I had flirted with rejoining a team for about 2 years now, and my girlfriend becky finally convinced me to join her league. Its fun to go to practice twice a week after work and get some exercise with a group. I keep ending up with welts all over my body though...which isn't that big of a deal, it just looks horrible. I'm really having fun skating again though. I had forgotten how much I liked it and I've been getting a lot better at it as well. I still have a long way to go though, I never fully relearned how to skate since I broke my leg the last time, so my leg muscles seem really weak at this point.

I got a new saddle on my bike. I've had my bike for two years now. I estimate that my old saddle ate through at least 8 pairs of pants in the 2 years I've had it. after I blew the inner thigh of the last pair I decided that it was time to get a leather saddle so I'd stop ruining my pants so fast...not to mention my old saddle was staring to get little holes all over... of course I chose a Brooks Saddle

I've had the saddle for about 2 months now, I am very pleased with it. its much more comfortable than my old was a little pricey at 85 dollars, but well worth it since I ride my bike at least 10 miles a day. good choices good choices.
