Sugar Rush

These past several days I have not had time for much because I have been preparing for a fundraising bake sale on Sunday, February 12. Hey – if anyone feels like coming out it will be at the Wal-Mart on FM 529 (15955 Fm 529 Road).

I have been calling and driving around to local stores asking for donations, buying all the stuff that I need, baking, packaging everything up, etc. Boy, I hope we get some decent donations from all this work.

I have made 5 batches of brownies and 3 batches of rice krispie treats so far. And I still need to make 2 large batches of fudge, Snicker surprise cookies, Reese’s PB cup cookies, peanut butter cookies and cup cakes. And then put together some Valentine themed bags of candy. Guess what I am doing tonight and tomorrow?!

In the morning it is the first training ride for TNT. Should be fun, cold but fun! I am getting excited about this season. The people I have met so far are great. After training I need to pick up a tent, table and signs from the TNT office for the bake sale. The last stop before home will be to a local Randall’s that has promised me some more goodies for the bake sale.

Next week it will be back to the training grind stone. I am not that big on daylight savings time, but right now I wish it was here. I so need the extra hours in the evening to go biking. I do not want to totally suck when the MS150 rolls around. And I do not like stationary bikes or treadmills. Such is life.

Totally random thought – if I had an MP3 player I think I would listen to Funiculi – Funicula by Russell Watson during my runs!

Bummer-- I'm going to be doing a ride in Pearland that day. Move the sale to Pearland and then I can buy fuel for the road! :-)
