I haven't had much time due to schoolwork, which is totally killing me right now. But I did want to post a quick update on the bike situation. We ordered the part we needed on ebay Saturday night, thanks to a good friend who prefers to remain nameless. Big D has ordered the same part from the same seller for his friend's bike not too long ago (ironic? yes!). So, Big D expected the part to come in Wednesday or yesterday. Wednesday, the UPS truck pulled up and the guy had a box that was just the right size. Big D got very excited when he saw this and said, "Oh, you brought my part!" To which the UPS guy replied, "It's addressed to Lily." This is my what my Mom calls our daughter, Vicki. (Long story, don't ask.) Poor Big D was crushed. He emailed the seller last night to find out when he could expect the part, and the reply he got was, "Sorry for the delay. Will send tomorrow." Fabulous. You pay $40 for shipping and you have to wait more than a friggin week to get the part?! So we don't anticipate accepting delivery of said part until at least Monday. Joy. So this weekend, we get to take the cage to the BACA meeting. Joy. I can't wait until the bike is up and running. And if I'm this agitated, I can only imagine how Big D is feeling.
