More bike drama

I got a bike pump this afternoon when I got home from work. I pumped up the rear tire, and adjusted the front brakes. Everything was perfect. I rode my bike around the back street here just to make sure everything was good. All seemed good. But then, it felt like I had a rock in my back tire. I stopped to check. It was flat again. And this time, there was a sizable screw pierced through the tire and into the tube. How’s that for luck! It seems that with my bike, I’m screwed! So now I need to go and get a new tube for the tire. And also, the new bike computer doesn’t seem to be working. Murphy got his fair share on this one!

Once I was done with the bike, I headed to the grocery store to do some shopping. Kelly called to let me know she was on the way home and I headed over to Pentagon City to pick her up from work (and brought her some flowers too!)

Got a little more reading done early this evening and may try for some more now. Still not feeling 100% but I took some medicine a little while ago. Hopefully I’ll sleep better tonight than last night.
