Excuses

It’s been a while since I posted and I have all the usual excuses: I’ve been sick, I’ve been busy and I haven’t had much to say.

I got sick on my birthday and I’m not a good sick person. It makes me grumpy. Every day I think I feel better but the nausea just keeps coming back. Hopefully this will pass soon.

Despite not feeling well, I spent much of the weekend at the Beach Sportsplex watching Ellie’s ACN select squad play in a soccer tournament. Ellie scored the first goal in the second game on Saturday, which her team went on to win. Unfortunately that was their only win. They lost their first game to a tough West Virginia squad. On Sunday, they played a Charlottesville team close through much of the first half of the semifinals before the wheels came off. They wound up losing 0-2. The team looks great for moments. Wish we could string all those moments together for a full game.

On Monday, I probably didn’t do the smartest thing. I drove to Williamsburg and rode 70 miles with some friends in the long-planned Billy-Roubaix. Probably set my recovery back. More on the ride a little later.
