That's all it took to top off the tank on my bike today, and that's buying high test. I went back out this afternoon after darkwolfie and I got back from Easter dinner at his mom's. I just went over to Haffner's and back (soteltie, I went right by your house!), just to shake off the cobwebs. darkwolfie went to bed -- he has to work tonight. He just asked that I tell him when I got back.

It's such a different feeling, stepping out of the back door, wearing my motorcycle jacket, carrying a helmet and gloves. I feel strong and confident and somehow extremely kickass. It's sort of silly, but at the same time, I enjoy that feeling. I think part of it is that I'm going alone. While I didn't mind waiting for darkwolfie to ride with me, while he watched my skills solidify, it feels so good to know that he trusts me to go alone.

I hope I never get blasé about this. I hope I always appreciate how lucky I am to be able to do this. I don know that every time I pull into the driveway, I feel like the luckiest girl ever.

Sorry I missed you--I would have waved :-)

I'd have waved at the house, if I could remember which one it was!

It is the yellow house, next to the Riverbank parking lot. If you have your back to the QuickStop II convenience/liquor store on 113 and look across the street, ours is the first house on the left on Ashland Ave., number 133.
