Busy Week

It's been another crazily busy week for me. On the work side of things, we've been pushing hard to try to get things in shape so that we can freeze for FC6 test2. Things are slowly improving in terms of getting the Xen side of things merged up — the only thing outstanding right now seems to be IO errors during guest installs. Progress is being made on it, so we'll hopefully be freezing and going from there real soon now.

Outside of work, I've been busy as well. My sister was up for the weekend last weekend. Then, on Tuesday evening, I headed down to Harvard Square to do some spinning as a fundraiser for the Red Ribbon Ride.

Wednesday evening, we had the first condo association meeting since we moved into our new place. It was interesting — nothing too controversial really, but just kind of an odd micro-government sort of thing. On the plus side, people seemed less adversarial in person than had previously seemed to be the case via email. Then again, this is usually the case 🙂

This weekend hasn't been less busy. Friday evening started out with the thunderstorm to beat all thunderstorms. There was some pretty significant flash flooding and to make things fun, it was as I was on my way home from work. Saturday morning, I woke up and headed out for a ride with the Quad Cycles group. Didn't do the entire loop, though, as I had to get ready and drive up to New Hampshire for 's wedding. The wedding was very nice and the reception was as well. As always, it was good to get together with people whom I don't get to see that often. I didn't really do much in the way of picture taking, though.

Got home last night at about midnight and crashed. Woke up this morning and went out again on the bike. At this point, I'm feeling pretty good about my training and am starting to really look forward to the ride in two weeks. While the distance will be long, I'm confident that my legs will carry me and I'll feel good about having done some good. The plan is to ride as I have been through next weekend and then taper down until the day of.
