    How to tell your spending too much time on the bike.

    So for a while now I've been working 6pm-6am. I sleep most of the day and am not around in the daylight hours for the kids. Today I got up early and spent the day with my 11mo old while my wife ran errands with my 2y/o and my 5y/o was in school. They all got home around 5:00pm. I was exhausted from watching the baby so I went into the 10 degree garage to stare and tinker at the Hawk (making some brackets for new front signals). I came in, got dressed, kissed the family, and headed off to work. I usually work in the garage after they go to bed on my days off.

    I get a call from my wife shortly after I get to work. She was putting the kids to bed and had to tell me my 2y/o sat down and said, (not exact but close too) "Daddy doesn't like me. He sleeps all day and goes in the garage". Man do I feel bad. Talk about pulling the heart strings. At least now I know which kids gonna help daddy install the new parts. She "helped" once before and a mile down the road a screwdriver fell out from somewhere.
    -God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I had to kill because they annoyed me.

    If you're ever missing tools, just take the bike for a spin around the block! That's too damn cute, dude.
