I feel a little bummed today.

#1 Unread post by totalmotorcycle » Thu Mar 22, 2012 9:26 am

I feel a little bummed today as last night/today is motorcycle poster take down from my office walls in preperation for the move. I've been adding motorcycle posters to the office walls now for the past 3.5 years (so there is about 30 of them) and forgot how plain and boring 4 off-white walls can be. :(

I even changed my avatar today to a hobo (even looks like he is wearing a cowboy hat) as I'm so "in-between" bikes, homes and countries! haha.

Oh well, won't be long before I am back into a house again (in a different country) and assign one of the rooms as my office and start putting up motorcycle stuff once more on the walls. :D

...and I have to find another motorcycle to buy as well since I just sold mine 2 weeks ago. :revv:

Lots to look forward to in the coming months.

I had no idea that you were going through such a big transistion. Are you living in Texas? Anyway, what SaPaul said is true - you and Sunshine will be just fine (because it rhymes!!). Take it one thing at a time...

:wink: Actually, I live in Yellow Springs, Ohio. The town was founded by a group of naturalists who set up retreat-style lodging facilities near the spring in the glen which borders the north/eastern side of town. Many of our current residents live by the philosophies of what would be considered more "hippie" in nature. This applies to me as well - on certain days. We live in a very liberal village stuck in the middle of a very conservative state.

The Mean Streak is alive and well, and is keeping me happy on every single ride!! Hope all is well for you in the Southern Hemisphere... :D

Cheers,
Loonette

Guess what? We've bought a house!!! Found it a week and a half ago and take possession on Tuesday June 12th. Wow, who knew you could buy a house in ~2 weeks?!?!?!?!

It's been a rough couple of months so it will be awesome to be in our new home where we can settle down. The stress has been incredible...

But just like my name implies - I always look for the sunny side up! The glass is always half full with me (and same with Mike) so we have gotten through okay.

PS: We did not end up with a pool in our backyard (booooo...) but there is a community pool down the street, just a short walk away. :mrgreen:

Yay! Congrats on the new house, and as long as it has a garage big enough for 2 bikes, that's all you need! :)

I don't care if the glass is half full or half empty... All it means is that it's time to top up my wine...

Good point and you are right, how can I be bummed when I get to drive that and of course and I'm very, very fortunate to own it as well. :D

Life is very slowly getting back to normal. And soon I'll have another motorcycle to putt around with too! :revv:
