It Is Spring in Chicagoland and Time To Get Outside

I know it is spring in Chicagoland but what is with the snow and cold weather. Early today it was cold, the sky was bright blue, the sun was shining and I went for a walk. I only walked a mile because I wanted to ride my bicycle later in the day. All my life I have been an avid bicycle rider and for the past four years I have not been able to ride because of knee problems. I rode for a few miles and it felt great. I am so happy my butt, my knees and heart are doing fine. I am still having tightness in my chest and it did not get any worse when I walked or rode my bicycle. I did take a three hour nap this afternoon and had to be woken up for dinner.
This photo is from when I was on a bike ride with my family on Chicago's Lake Front.
The date on the photos is 04/25/2004.
This is just three weeks before I was diagnosed with MDS.

I am still reading "Blood Covenant" by Michael Franzese. I have only 20 pages left and will finish it tomorrow. If I have a bad dream again tonight, I will finish the book instead of laying in bed shaking for hours. I still can not remember what the dream was about, but it did have me scared. This book had touched me in many ways and I can see how it can change a persons life.

Most of my day was spent downloading CDs to my computer. When I had to replace my hard drive and external backup drive I lost all of my music. I was very upset today when I was downloading my songs to my iPod when it had a disk error and locked up. I have been trying all evening to unlock it and just about threw it against the wall when it finally unlocked. It just finished downloading 759 songs, 1.9 days and 2.59 GB and I am only half way thru my CD collection. I will have to count my CDs but if I had to guess I would say I have at least 300 CDs.

When I walk I listen to quilting podcast and today it was not any fun walking without Alex Anderson. I have had my iPod for four years and it may need to be replaced. If only I could find the money tree growing in my backyard. Until the money tree does grow I will have to deal with it locking up as long as I can keep unlocking it I am happy.
