There is a certain sense of anticipation in the air for me this week. The snow finally melting at a rate that is making me itch like mad to get on my bike and pedal on all of my favourite trails again and through every mud puddle I can find. I really can’t wait. I’ve been cooped up all winter and I really need to run into a few trees to knock some sense into me.

On top of having that itch that I just can’t quite scratch yet, this week is also when my tax refund should come in as well as my first actual pay cheque from my new job. I’m really looking forward to both. It’ll be nice to actually have money again that isn’t all automatically earmarked for keeping the wolves from the door. While most of it will still be used to  pay off the debts that have accrued recently a fair chunk of it is going to be set aside for the sole purpose of rebuilding my computer. It won’t cost six million dollars but I will rebuild it and make it faster, stronger, smarter. I might even have it make the “Dah-nah-nah-nah” bionic man noise when it boots up because I’m a geek like that.

So here’s to sunny days and rebuilt computers and all that jazz.
