The house drama continues. As Heather stated on her blog, we had our inspection on Saturday (she also posted some interior and backyard pics). The house could use a new roof and a new furnace. Both are still functioning now...no leaks in the attic and the furnace is still running smooth, but both are "near the end of their useful life". So now we are seeing if the seller (the bank) would be willing to buy the new roof/furnace or give us a break on the selling price. Fun times.
Tonight we go to the insurance agent to check on insurance for the house. We need that before we can close on it.
Last night Team Gray extended their unbeaten streak, beating Team White 6-2. We played pretty well as a team and are now only 2 points behind Team Blue in the standings. I got an assist, but no goals. Next week we don't have a game due to the Super Bowl.
Is there a new road frameset in my near future??

Team Gray played the 3rd placed Team Orange tonight in hockey. Final score was 8-3, with the boys in gray getting the win. That solidifies our hold on 2nd place. I had a goal and 2 assists.
After hockey, Heather and I went over to Mary and Brooks' house for some lasagna and brownies. Delicious.

Lots of bike fun this past week. The work on Heather's tri bike continues. Last night we put it on the trainer and dialed in her position a bit before cutting any of the housing. She's going to be fast! Brooks and I laced our wheels up...now they just need to be tensioned up and they should be good to go. We also went to the Cronometro Bike Swap in Madison on Saturday. Neither of us found anything that we absolutely needed, so we came home empty-handed.
Team Gray beat the first place and previously undefeated Team Blue in convincing fashion last night, 8-4. It was a good win for us, as we only had 10 skaters show up, so that meant lots of ice time. I had 2 goals and 3 assists for a 5 point night. I missed a golden chance for the hat trick when I screwed up a pass that would have given me a breakaway. We are now back in 2nd place in the league.
Heather has today off from work. I'm jealous.

Also, Heather ordered up her Trek Equinox 7 WSD bike last week! I just started building it, so I will post some more pics of it when I get it completed. Heather's going to be smokin' fast in the bike leg of her tri's this season! :)
After a 3 week break due to the holidays, Team Gray took to the ice again on Sunday and had their 4-game unbeaten streak broken by Team Black in a 5-3 loss. All 5 of Team Black's goals were scored when our 3rd line was out on the ice...you could probably say that they didn't have their best game. I felt like I had a good game...only managed one assist, but could have easily had 3 or 4 goals with all the chances that my line had. Just didn't get the puck luck I guess.
A pile of rims, spokes, hubs, and nipples? That can only mean one thing...it's wheel building time!

Here is Mario trying to get Heather to play with him. Heather seems reluctant.
Tonia and Big J looking WAY too excited.
