Today is the last day of November. That means December is tomorrow. I think of December as the real start of winter, even though it isn’t official for three more weeks.
I like the 4 seasons. I like the different temperatures. I like the trees growing leaves and growing them. I like the leaves falling off and the wind blowing them around the neighborhood.
I’m not too big on it getting dark around 5. And I’m not too big on the traffic. Seems like everyone is just drives a car in the winter, no matter if it is a nice day out.
It hasn’t been too cold in Topeka yet. The lows have been in the 30’s and high now are in the 50’s. We haven’t even turned on our furnace yet. Seems like our house is staying in the upper 60’s without any help. I’m not sure what that is all about. Maybe all the pets? Or cooking? I don’t have any other explanations.
I won’t be able to ride outdoors at all this winter. At least where there is any snow or a situation where I might fall and whack my head. I would like to ride my bike outside as soon as I can. It is sort of up to me now. I guess it always was. I’ve been reading a bunch about this TBI thing and the risk/reward deal. And I’m going to be cautious, which isn’t my normal style.
I’ve been riding the ergometer inside for a while now. I got my bike back from the Walberg’s house a couple days ago. I have no idea what happened to it. The rear wheels is bent over like I’ve never done before. Luckily, for a Lemond trainer, you don’t need a rear wheel.
The Lemond trainer is super smooth and having wattage, like exact wattage is nice. I feel okay ride, nothing special. I have to sometimes not ride much because of headaches, dizziness and such.
Today I’m heading to do a balance test at the ENT place. It takes a couple hours and they put goggles on me and measure my eye movements. I’ve heard they put warm water in my ears. I’m not sure what that is about, but I’m interested in the results.
I’m pretty sure the majority of my dizziness, being off-balance, is ear related. And that is fixable. I’ve tried a couple times, with pretty good results, but I’m not 100% cured. I think that I can get that fixed in the next week or so. At least I hope so.
Okay, I haven’t been able to have any caffeine the last couple days. That really isn’t a big deal. I haven’t been having much recently anyway.
I have to be done eating in the next 10 minutes, so I’d better do finish up and eat something.
