It's been a slow March on 2-wheels. I was shocked when I entered my commute miles for today that I hadn't been on the bike for 2 weeks. Suffice to say, though, that today is a grand day! About 1 hour ago I FedExed my "box" to the NBPTS headquarters. The grand National Boards portfolio is finished and sent, two days early even! I've been nearly giddy all day with the thought of getting this burden off my shoulders. I think I did a quality product and hope to score well enough to "pass" come November. I do have the test left, or in modern parlance, the "assessment", during which I have to prove that I know Spanish, which I do. I'm confident. I'm leaving nothing for chance though; if I fail (i.e., don't pass the first time), I won't be crestfallen. I know of many others who befell the same fate.

I did ride today, some 14 total miles on a slow-n-easy commute on the Ute. As much as I planned to ride more during tennis season, it's been the evening soccer that has demanded the attention. Tomorrow, for example, I have practice until 4.30. No biggie. But 'Z' has a game out in the SW part of the county at 5.30, so I'll have to make big decisions. I also have to go outside and change a flat tire on the wife's car. Arrggg! It's always something.

But at least 1 big monkey has been sent to the house!

Congrats on getting the thing in the mail! I know that's a huge relief! Now you can just focus on the day to day stresses instead of that big one...
