As Days Go By

My last post rreinforced how terrible of a blogger I am. Feb 2010, and now it's December 2011. Nearly 2 years have passed since I visited my own blog. Updates? Sure, here we go.

  • Levi just turned 3, and he too is potty trained.
  • Gavin is nearing the 5 year maker. He rides without training wheels
  • Both boys hit the mini BMX track the other day. Both loved it.
  • I don't know how many bike frames I've built since my last post. 29ers, Cross bikes, fixed gear frames. All very rad.
  • I'm back to working full time in the Bicycle industry.
  • I don't take many photos anymore, sad but true. This blog will suffer even more. (yikes!) 
  • Dad bought a RV. weird. 
  • Sara is back in the work force. And back in school- thumbs up!
  • www.facebook.com/quijanobikes 
Goals for 2012:
  • Take more photos
  • Ride more bikes
  • Goto bed earlier
  • Wake up earlier
  • Spend less money
  • Lower blood pressure
See you in 2012.

See, I'm bad at this.

Ok, I'm totally forgot about this blog, sorry.
-I'm building bike frames and attempting to get the photography biz setup.
-I have a business credit card so 650B Palace should be getting some product for sale on it. Yippie.
-I have designed a new frame and began working on it tonight.
-I smell like metal.
-We got a new camera recently.
- Gavin will be 3 soon. Damn how time flies. I remember bringing him home from the hospital. The Black Parade was the first song played in the car on the drive. I'll never forget that.
-Gavin is potty trained!
-We got a dog. The dog is not potty trained. It keeps shitting in my shop.
-I am finishing a TREK 930 rebuild into a 650B-Bridgestone xo-1 type bike. It's pretty rad. I need to pick a color.
-I need to shower.
-Logging off.

I'm bad at updating.

So I run a few blogs....and this one gets updated the least. Sorry.
I just returned from lacrosse practice. I found a guy taking shots on a goal near Destiny's old school back in December. His name is Don and his son also plays lacrosse. I talked with him briefly the I met him and we swapped numbers in case he needed another player for them Firefighter team he wanted to start up for a summer league. Don called me so I've been showing up for practices, some of which only he and I showed up to. I guess fire fighters aren't as dependable when off-duty. This week and last we managed to has 6 guys total. Which made things fun enough to get rough and get tired. My buddy Pickkle from high school visited in the beginning of May and brought some of my old lacrosse gear from Houston. Playing without gloves is totally different and with. This week 3 guys has gloves and 3 new guys had purchased their own sticks. That's nice- and shows some sort of dedication (at least to come to practice).
I played lacrosse through my high school years, but couldn't find anyone to play with when I moved to Nebraska. So, my (ancient) gear has been untouched since 2000. It's nice to be back into it again-something different than bikes.
Here are a few images from the last practice in May.




We weren't doing anything fast or challenging. I did alot of feeding from behind the goal so the newbies can get a feel for catching and shooting on the goal. We didn't a crease around the goal (forbidden for offensive players to step into), but we did our best. No goalie either. All in good time. At the least we have a goal to shoot on.

oops.

My birthday came and passed and I forgot to make a post. Oh well. You get older every year, no big deal right?
Well Sara and I made it out of the house on our own for the first time since...well, I can't remember when. My mothers watched the kiddos and we made our way to CRAZY BUFFET, a gnarly Asian buffet with all you can eat tempura, sushi, and sashimi. Among other things as well. We had our usually plum wine, and gorged ourselves on food, then finished up with chocolate fondue and a bit of ice cream.
After that we were ready for a movie, but our first picked started 20 minutes before we arrived, so our back-up was THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT. Wild flick. I recommend it to those who enjoy haunting movies.
We forgot our cameras for the evening so no visual record of the night was made- sad us.

Tomorrow is Gavin's second birthday, and my life-long pal, Mike, will be driving in with his wife Jessica from Houston. They will stay the weekend with us then head to Orlando to do the tourist thang.
I'll photo tomorrows events.
